What is the purpose of the First Twelve Days in OA?
• To help newcomers, returning OA members, and other members learn about the OA Twelve Step recovery program by using this personal, short-term introduction to Overeaters Anonymous.
• To help sponsees learn how the OA recovery program might help them to stop hurting themselves with food.
• To help members who may be ready to sponsor but are reluctant to do so. This is an opportunity for a member to help a newcomer in a very structured way and to experience what it might be like to be a regular sponsor.
The new Temporary Sponsors: Newcomers’ First Twelve Daysis now posted online. This is new Conference-approved literature.
As we are experiencing uncertain times it is important to remember what our program and our fellowship is all about: Perfecting and enlarging our spiritual life through service and self-sacrifice for others.
(Please check the meeting list for special notices about meeting changes and you may want to contact the meeting contact to confirm).
Finally, it is important that we do not give in to fear (as well as any other emotions)! Be sure to continue your step work, continue to support, reach out and encourage one another, and, most importantly, continue to allow your HP to guide you!
The board is here to help groups and individuals carry the message so feel free to reach out to us with questions or concerns.
