Caroline Gibbs of Solihull Meeting invites Friends to a 3-part course exploring a twelve-step approach to Quaker spirituality.
The Twelve Step Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous was founded in 1935 by a New York Stockbroker and an Akron Surgeon. They were both hopeless alcoholics.
Through this meeting and subsequent meetings, a Fellowship was formed. As a result, AA has become truly global with recent surveys suggesting a membership, in the UK alone, of somewhere between 33,000 and 40,000. This Fellowship is based on the spiritual principles contained within the framework of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. Visitors to 12 Step meetings often remark that the spiritual principles contained within this framework would be good for anyone to live by.
Up until now, little has been brought to the attention of non-alcoholics regarding the spiritual principles behind this success. Together, we will explore the practical applications of these spiritual principles in relation to the faith and practice of Friends.
Those attending can look forward to worship, individual and corporate reflection and sharing.
No previous experience of the 12 Steps is required.
This free event is open to all Central England Quakers.The workshops run across three Sundays: 15th, 22nd & 29th October.
There are 16 places available: please register with Caroline Gibbs by September 30th. Email firstname.lastname@example.org 01217 081811
Tea and coffee will be provided.
