Suggestion for OA events

Hello planners and workshop committee members! Here’s a reminder recently posted on http://www.oa.org January 2018 newsletter :

“We suggest the following OA Speaker Statement be read at all OA events:

OA speakers do not represent OA as a whole but speak from their own experience, strength and hope.  OA recognizes there are individual approaches and different concepts of working the Twelve Step program of recovery.  We all are reminded that our common disease and our common purpose unite us; differences in approaches to recovery need not divide us.  OA is strengthened when we honor and respect all by practicing unity with diversity.”    — Guidelines for OA Events(download from oa.org)

Thank you Darlene for your submission!  Please feel free to submit articles, writings, poetry and announcements to oadallasweb@gmail.com for blog and calendar posting.
