This March at Makefield Friends Meeting, Maia Simon will lead four sessions of Adult First Day School with a look at the Twelve Steps, which first were defined by the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous and are now used by many other programs for addiction and for emotional and relationship wellness. One need not have or acknowledge an addiction to participate in these discussions; we are examining the steps as spiritual practice. 

The last of the Twelve Steps says, “Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry the message to others who still suffer and to practice these principles in all our affairs.” Indeed, the Twelve Steps are a program intended to help one find conscious contact with a ‘Higher Power’; it is a program for spiritual formation and growth.

This program at Makefield Meeting is based on a weekend workshop Maia has delivered at Pendle Hill called ‘Beyond Abstinence; Taking The Steps To Happy, Joyous, And Free.’

Adult First Day School at Makefield meets from 11:15 to noon each Sunday of the month except the second. First Day School is preceded by meeting for worship from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. and light refreshments thereafter. You are invited to join us in March for the discussion of the Twelve Steps (and worship, if you wish) on the 3rd, 17th, 24th, and 31st of the month.
