12 Step Retreat Providence Center Feb 5-7, 2010
An enthusiastic group of 26 participants attended this retreat that went from Friday evening to Sunday nooon. The theme was Stepping Into The Kingdom. Four of the 12 Steps of the program of Alcoholics Anonymous are on faith and prayer. Five presentations provided an overview of the program then focused on Steps 2, 3, 7 and 11. A prayer experience such as Lectio Divina, Centering Prayer, Taize prayer and the Liturgy of the Hours followed each presentation. Pictured with me are a participant Glenn B., who wants to share his experience with a group that he belongs to; Debbie Doornbos, the program director for the Providence Renewal Center, whose idea it was to put on this retreat.
