My post entitled “Clothed with joy” was featured yesterday on Through the Red Door, the blog of Recovery Ministries of the Episcopal Church.
Some of the material comes from reflections on this blog, but I appreciated the opportunity once again to draw a connection between common recovery practices like Steps 10 and 11 and the ancient wisdom of the Church in those areas.
“One day at a time,” says Alcoholics Anonymous. “Daily we begin again,” say the Benedictines.
I am grateful for the Daily Office as a framework for living each day, and for the recovery community which has revitalized my spiritual life.
