Join us in February at Recovering Love Church: Step Two: “Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.”

We Worship Every Saturday at 5:30

Our worship service blends Scripture and principles of 12 step recovery to help people who are recovering, and those in relationship with them experience a connection with God and each other.  Faith stories, music, prayer, and fellowship all support this process.

Recovering Love Church is moving through all 12 Steps this year, giving one month to explore each Step in sequence. February, brings us to Step Two, and this offers an exciting opportunity to leap from powerlessness to a Power greater than ourselves that can restore us to sanity. 

 

It’s interesting to note that both the 12 Steps and the Bible invite us to be restored by a Power greater than ourselves. As you may know, giving our will and our life over to the power of addiction only took life from us (as well as our sanity) and left us bankrupt in many devastating ways.

 

In the Christian faith, we too, seek a Power greater than ourselves which will restore us from the wreckage of addiction; for some it is to be restored to peace, or a sense being forgiven, or perhaps a greater rest from stress that weighed us down and made us turn to drugs to for relief.  

 

Jesus used his power for restoring others during his life on earth. He restored possessed people to freedom from evil spirits. He restored people who were physically broken. He restored hope to the hopeless. Jesus restored broken relationships through forgiveness and love. Jesus restored dignity to those who had been told they had none. He restored the sense that God loved those who had been marginalized by religious people. Jesus also restored a young girl, a young man, and Lazarus from death to life. 

 

Both AA and the Christian faith state that sanity comes through believing in a Power greater than ourselves, a belief yes but also a relationship too. Jesus invites us into a relationship with him and his power and AA invites us to do the same. “True humility and an open mind can lead us to faith, and every A.A. meeting us an assurance that God will restore us to sanity if we rightly relate ourselves to Him.” Twelve Steps & Twelve Traditions p. 33 Or, “When the spiritual malady is overcome, we straighten out mentally and physically.” Alcoholics Anonymous p. 63 

 

We at Recovering Love Church invite you to explore the restorative love of God through the month of February as we seek to rightly relate ourselves to God as a community of faith.
