"We Are Not a Glum Lot!"
Fr. Tim Meier
Fr Tim looks at the baggage we’re lugging around, and how to lighten the load by applying the Twelve Steps in a humorous fashion. To often recovery can seem to be a matter of “heavy does it” rather than “easy does it”. Most of us arrive at our first meeting looking a bit bedraggled, to say the least. Many of us carry incredible burdens of shame, fear, abuse, sadness, loss, anger, and resentment when we arrive here, so being “perky” is probably not big on our hit parade. Too often we gravitate towards others who are painfully aware of similar burdens but have never learned how to play, how to laugh. Laughter, especially at ourselves, really is the best medicine. 8/05

"Having Had A Spiritual Awakening"
In the Language of Al-Anon
The goal of life in recovery is serenity. The wisdom of those who have gone before us in the program tells us that the way of spirituality is the way to serenity. The 12th Step indicates that “the” result of our progress through the Steps is a spiritual awakening. Fr. Tim M. looks at the various spiritual awakenings we have already experienced, and looks more closely at the Steps so that our awakenings can be deepened. Fr. Tim uses a beautiful guided meditation from “Serenity Meditations I” by Mariette Dobrowolski and Kristoph Franz.
