Tradition Two – Who’s in Charge?

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.

Principles of Tradition Two – trust, and Concept Two – conscience

Listen to the podcast here.

“For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority – a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern. – Tradition Two

“The OA groups have delegated to the World Service Business Conference the active maintenance of our world services; thus, the World Service Business Conference is the voice, authority and effective conscience of OA as a whole.” – Concept Two

The principle of Tradition Two is trust and Concept Two is conscience. The workshop speakers share their individual stories of recovery and how trust and conscience are 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.

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.
