Diocesan Recovery Ministry celebrates Recovery Month

Diocesan Recovery Ministry celebrates Recovery Month

From the Rev. Anne Dryden McKeever, diocesan representative for Recovery Ministries
Happy Recovery Month! 

In almost every pew in our congregations sit people struggling with some kind of addiction of their own or of people they love. 

As your diocesan representative to the Recovery Ministries of the Episcopal Church, I invite you avail yourself of our resources for this valuable ministry. 
Clergy in Charge of Congregations received last month a packet of information from our Partners in Health Ministries including information about Recovery Month, a list of recovery books in our diocesan library, Prayers for the People for a 12-Step Eucharist, and assorted RMEC pamphlets. 

Recovery Ministries may be celebrated any month! 

I pray clergy will make available to your congregations these resources, as well as my offer to have members of our Diocesan Recovery Ministry visit your congregation to provide a presentation, homily, or forum -- in person or via Zoom.   

Stay tuned next week for our report on resources gathered from the Faith and Addiction Conference in Minnesota that Rev. Anne of St. Paul’s, Sacramento, and Helen Campbell, of St. Martin’s, Davis, recently attended. This conference, co-sponsored by the RMEC and the Fellowship of Recovering Lutheran Clergy, included resources for alcohol, opioid, and technology addiction. 

If you have questions or would like your own packet of recovery resources mailed to you, please send your name and contact information to Rev. Anne at amckeever@wavecable.com or call 530-908-3616. 

As Franciscan Richard Rohr teaches: “We’re all addicted to our own way of thinking.” 
Please let us gently challenge that addiction.
