Embodying our serenity prayer...

Shane Phelan, CMA

The Serenity Prayer is basic to our fellowships, as many people pray it together at the end of each meeting. We pray it in times of confusion or frustration or fear.  But what does it mean to live it, to live into it?  In this retreat we will spend time reflecting on how the prayer works in our lives and on how we can use it for greater recovery. Leader reflections and group sharing help us to go deeper into this simple source of sanity.
