Basement Spirituality: What the Church Must Learn from AA

Fri 3 PM | Convo Hall 2
Sat 11 AM | Convo Hall 2

Eric Mayle

In recent years, the vital spiritual community of Alcoholics Anonymous has been discovered by the non-addicted as a well of spirituality outside of the desert of the institutional church. Many see the spiritual depth and authenticity of the AA community and say, “I’m not an alcoholic or an addict, but I want that; I need that.” This session will discuss the ways in which AA can offer the church a model of spiritual revitalization. The irony is that church basements are the traditional meeting place for AA, so the church is literally sitting on top of these resources for revitalization.
