The Fellowship of the Spirit

God has a way of lining everything up, and it’s up to us to say yes. And that’s exactly what happened when I recently went to Crested Butte. I flew in a day ahead of Steven and spent my time inquiring about excursions and local events to build our agenda. As I’ve been doing for the last 6 years, I also promptly found the local Alcoholics Anonymous meeting schedule and attended. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that there was a week long convention at my lodge and the lodge next door during my stay!!! Registration was closed, and they were sold out but I was told to check back on Monday morning. There were a few no shows, so I was IN!!!

724 attendees. Sobriety ranging from 7 DAYS to 43 years. Powerful speakers. Powerful messages. Strong sobriety. Willingness. Surrender. GOD. Each night at the end of the speaker meeting, we closed with everyone standing up, holding hands, praying the Lords Prayer. POWERFUL.

Through the brokenness of alcoholism, there is always hope. Unshakable faith can be restored.

We are never alone. The fellowship is worldwide. I was blessed enough to witness it.
