An alphabet soup fills many church basements – AA, NA, SA, NAMI, Alanon, Society of Augustine…. Houses of worship lending their facilities for healing and support is more than charitable stewardship. The journey of one seeking wholeness through the company of strangers is intrinsically spiritual. An utter reliance on a higher power is what all people should achieve; often only those with the courage to face their brokenness through a supportive small group find this (and aren’t we all broken in some way?) Whether it be a diagnosed illness or you find yourself in repetitive patterns of regrettable behavior, you have already advanced a small step to power, grace and forgiveness. Pastor Paul will not shame your brokenness but rather point to this very pain as your key to overcoming it.
