Change to OA Preamble

Please alert your group to the change in the OA Preamble. It now reads:

“Overeaters Anonymous is a Fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength, and hope, are recovering from compulsive overeating. We welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively.

There are no dues or fees for members; we are self-supporting through our own contributions, neither soliciting nor accepting outside donations. OA is not affiliated with any public or private organization, political movement, ideology, or religious doctrine; we take no position on outside issues.

Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviors and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.”

12 Steps in 5 Hours Workshop

Workshop topic: We take the twelve steps of Overeaters Anonymous in just a few hours! Who came up with this idea?  Dr. Bob, the co-founder of AA.  As it is written on pages 171 and 263, the whole process used to be done in a few hours.

It is our hope and our prayer that we can recreate this experience during our workshop.

During our workshop we will determine which foods are alcoholic to us, and we will go from Step 1 to 12.

What to bring: Your lunch (Refrigerator and microwave available), Big Book,  Suggested donation $5.

When: Saturday, May 30, 2015
10:00 a.m. – 4:00 ish p.m.

Where : Faith United Presbyterian Church
