We are often blessed in our Sunday worship by the attendance of men and women who are actively engaged in their recovery at Duffy's residential treatment center in Calistoga. They quickly become part of our church family, although their stay with us is brief.
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.
