“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.”
The serenity prayer is composed of wise words that challenge so many. These are stressful days which provide unique challenges for men and women struggling with addictions. The church can support, encourage and lead the way in changing part of the world beginning in your own neighborhood. Recovery Sunday is five months away but it’s time to begin to pray about making a stand in your community and congregation on October 18, 2009. I encourage you to begin to accept the challenge to make a difference and pray for wisdom in the way to communicate Christ-like care and concern to your part of the world. During the summer, we will be providing helps for your church in preparing for Recovery Sunday.
