12-Step Study Meeting Format
PRAYER: ____________(name of the volunteer) will open our meeting by leading us in The Serenity Prayer.
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.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.
Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it.
Trusting that You will make all things right
if I surrender to Your will.
so that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
At this meeting, we will be working through the book, "The Twelve Steps for Christians."
Everyone is welcomed to share their experience, strength and hope, however, we ask that you limit your shares to 2 to 3 minutes in order to give others an opportunity to share. As a gentle reminder,Pam will say “time” at 2 and 1/2 minutes, allowing additional time to wrap up your thoughts. If the room is quiet, please allow some moments of silence before sharing a second time.
We refrain from mentioning specific foods by name, as it could trigger food thoughts in others, and there is no cross-talk, which is commenting on another person's share (positive or negative) or giving advice. Using "for me" statements enables everyone to feel safe and protected in the rooms of Full of Faith.
