There’s a new podcast series for 2016 centered on “Service and My Recovery.” In addition to the Steps and Traditions, each podcast explores one of the Twelve Concepts of OA Service. Podcasts are available at any time and at no charge, so follow this series to become more familiar with the Concepts and to learn the many ways service can boost your program and strengthen your recovery.
The 2016 podcasts are produced from recordings of monthly virtual workshops held on the second Sunday of every month, and OA members can also participate in the virtual workshops before new podcasts are released. See the Datebook Calendar on oa.org for the complete schedule of telephone workshops and dial-in instructions.
Principle of Tradition One and Concept One – Unity “Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon OA unity.”
Tradition One – “The ultimate responsibility and authority of OA world services reside in the collective conscience of our whole Fellowship.”
Concept One – The principle of Tradition One and Concept One is Unity.
The workshop speakers share their individual stories of recovery and how unity is important in both their service work and in their working with others. For additional study, review The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous and The Twelve Concepts of OA Service.
