Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for the free event; coffee and refreshments will be served.
McGillis’ message of recovery, gratitude and spirituality is part of the celebration of the sixth anniversary of The Healing Power of 12-Step Spirituality Speaker Series, presented by Common Ground Recovery Ministry in conjunction with Caron Treatment Centers. The mission of the ministry is to engage in honest conversation, build strong relationships and explore spirituality for the sake of body, mind and spirit.
“The 12 Steps are a spiritual guide to help heal the broken relationships that often result from chemical abuse,” explains Pastor Tom Scornavacchi, of Common Ground Recovery Ministry located at Atonement Lutheran Church. “Where addiction robs us of the ability to have meaningful, lasting relationships, the 12 Steps help to repair those relationships, first with the God of our understanding, second with ourselves and then with others.”
