Tradition Three – All together now we are reaching out our hands

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 Three – identity, and Concept Two – trust

Listen to the podcast here.

“The only requirement for OA membership is a desire to stop eating compulsively – Tradition Three

“The right of decision, based on trust, makes effective leadership possible.” – Concept Three

The principle of Tradition Three is identiy and Concept Three is trust.  The workshop speakers share their individual stories of recovery and how idenity and trust are important in both their service work and in their lives. For additional study, review The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous andThe Twelve Concepts of OA Service.  The Lifeline Sampler is referenced by one of the speakers as a resource on this topic as well.

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.
