The success of this years workshop continues to prove that many people are still eager to grow in their own recovery.
It's been a little over a week since the convening of the '09 CR workshop in Mount Vernon, NY. Attendees traveled from as far west as San Diego, CA and as far south as Palm Beach, FL. Among their diverse ranks were recovering crack addicts and heroin users, alcoholics as well as ministry leaders, and while their stories may have been different they came to the workshop with the common purpose of wanting to give back.To Download Messages from the Workshop - Click Here
This years workshop which centered around the topic of Living the Traditions, shed new light on the cherished legacy in CR of living lives that are increasing in recovery every day. While for some it may have been their first formal introduction to the eight Traditions, any unfamiliarity quickly disappeared as they soon recognized in the Traditions the same trusted reasoning that has made CR the success story it is today. Along with classes covering the Traditions, participants were able to sit in on an actual group which gave them a first hand view of how this kind of CR group fits together.
Complimentary refreshments were served all day thanks to the generous support of the NYC Church of Christ which sponsored the entire event. On every level the commitment to CR's well being was apparent throughout the day. The success of this years workshop continues to prove that many people are still eager to grow in their own recovery. This, of course, is the key to helping others do the same.
