Where the Big Book Comes to Life …
Join us on Thursday evenings from 7-8 pm, starting December 5th 2013.

We will read 2-3 paragraphs from the Big Book each week,
pausing between paragraphs to share our experience, strength
and hope on each paragraph. The Big Book is the basis of the OA program
and is the only literature that provides specific instructions on how
to recover from this seemingly hopeless state of mind and body.
