A WORLD WITHOUT INTERGROUP

Dear Fellow OA members,

As of the printing of this issue of NoVAtions no one has come forward to run for the four open positions on the Board: Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary or Treasurer. We are hopeful that this will turn around in time for the elections at the Intergroup meeting on December 16th.

If you have the qualifications for a Board position, please consider running. Even if you are fearful about taking on such a role, your Higher Power and the fellowship will support you to give your best. Many of us had no experience with service beyond the meeting level. It is a sad day when . . . Read More

 


FROM THE CHAIR

Dear Friends in Recovery,

The theme this month is the principle of service. This is one of the cornerstones of our program. An oft-quoted shorthand for the steps tells us: Trust God (Steps 1-3). Clean house (Steps 4-10). Help others (Steps 11 and 12). One of the many paradoxes in program is . . . Read More

A WORD ABOUT STEP 12 - INSPIRED BY SERVICE

 There are so many opportunities in OA to give back what we have been given. I have been inspired by members who have shared their Step 12 goals in meetings and then achieved them. A member in one of my meetings persistently looks for opportunities to give service and makes outreach calls to others who have stopped coming. As a result of this service, the meeting has grown.

My recovery began 2 years ago when OA members were willing to call me, become my friend, and give me the support I needed to rebuild my life. Feeling cared about motivated me to become . . .Read More

  

STEP 12 PRAYER

Dear God,
My spiritual awakening continues to unfold. The help I have received I shall pass on & give to others, both in & out of the Fellowship. For this opportunity I am grateful. I pray most humbly to continue walking day by day on the road of spiritual progress. I pray for the inner strength & wisdom to practice the principles of this way of life in all I do & say. I need You, my friends & the program every hour of every day. This is a better way to live.
