The Arbor - March-April 2014

The Arbor is an on-line periodical that shares helpful testimonies and updates on the Church's addiction recovery 12-step program in the northeastern U.S.

The March-April issue focuses on steps 3 and 4:

  • Decide to turn your will and your life over to the care of God the Eternal Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.
  • Make a searching and fearless written moral inventory of yourself.

One contributor testifies in the March-April issue of the Arbor,
My first step was acknowledging that trying to do it all alone was not working. Realizing that my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ are real as anything I can see, touch, hear, and smell right here and now, and that they love me and want to help me were essential for knowing I can trust them.
In addition to inspirational testimonies and stories, the Arbor includes a list of the face-to-face and telephone call-in meetings available to those who want to overcome addiction and to family members who are suffering from the addiction of loved ones.
