We are often blessed in our Sunday worship by the attendance of men and women who are actively engaged in their recovery. Our goal is to offer help to the addicted and those who love them in connecting with spiritual resources to aid in their finding lasting recovery.
The Episcopal Church has long played a leadership role in helping those affected by addiction. AA was started by these Episcopalians, Bill W, Dr. Bob, and Sam Shoemaker.
O blessed, Lord, you ministered to all who come to you: Look with compassion upon all who through addiction have lost their health and freedom. Restore to them the assurance of your unfailing mercy; remove from them the fears that beset them; strengthen them in the work of their recovery; and to those who care for them give patient understanding and persevering love. Amen.
