The Spirituality of Connection
Tuesday, September 8, 2015
Addiction is a disease of disconnection.Recovery means establishing authentic, life-giving connections with oneself, one’s higher power, and other people. One of the greatest gifts of recovery is realizing that extending ourselves to others opens the channel for immense good to come to us. Connection is always a two-way street. As we give, so we receive. Special guest Roger Temme, M.Div., is the outreach director for the Care Communities in Austin, Texas, a nonprofit that creates volunteer teams to help those facing HIV/AIDS or cancer alone. Addiction can frequently be a complicating factor. A former member of a Catholic religious community and priest for many years, Roger shares his profound understanding and experience with the essential element of human connection in an authentic spiritual life. Learn more about Roger’s work at thecarecommunities.org.
