Roll Away the Stone – Episode 147

DSC_9877“Who will roll away the stone?”

The story of Easter is one of resurrection and recovery. But, we need help to roll away the stone from the tomb of our despair and denial.

In Al-Anon, we find that help. It might come from recognition that we are not alone, that others have been where we are, and have found serenity and happiness despite the unmanageability brought by alcoholism and addiction. It might come from working the 12 steps, and from the tools of our program of recovery. It might come from the love and support of a Higher Power that some of us name God. But however it might come, it does come when we seek it and work for it.

Happy Easter, and may you find the recovery you are seeking. May you find the help you need to roll away your stone.

The opening reading is from the blog Nancy's Chutney, titled Resurrection from deadness.

Upcoming topics include meditation and another of the “Gifts of Al-Anon.” We will discover that we are both, worthy of love and loving. We will love others without losing ourselves, and will learn to accept love in return. How do you see this coming true in your life? Please call us at 734-707-8795 or email with your questions or experience, strength and hope. Or just leave a comment right here.
