12 STEP EUCHARIST PROGRAM - May 24, 2017

The weekday Eucharist on Wednesday, May 24th at 5:30 pm at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church chapel will incorporate the 12 steps and a healing service in the liturgy. The liturgy has been prepared by the Recovery Ministries of the Episcopal Church.  It is a teaching liturgy showing us how the spirituality of the 12 steps is part of the liturgy of the Eucharist.  For people in recovery, this service may be important to see how each of the 12 steps is present in the liturgy of the word and the table.  For those not in involved in 12-step recovery, the service will be an introduction to the spirituality of the 12-step programs.  Our experience is that every member of our parish would benefit from the principles of the 12 step programs. We invite all to attend and especially any of St. Mark’s congregations who are involved in 12 step recovery as well as those not St. Mark’s members in 12-step recovery.

Workshop - April 27, 2017

The Dis-Ease of Codependency

We had a great turnout for "The Dis-Ease of Codependency led by Bradford Health’s Jeremy Rakes, MSW, focusing on the disease of co-dependency affecting patients suffering from substance abuse disorder and their families.

We have added Jeremy's PowerPoint from the session and hope to add the audio soon. 

What to expect? The symptoms of co-dependency - the analogy of the alarm clock that families continue to silence, and a discussion of enabling, dysfunction, and helping will be discussed.
Rakes, a recovering addict himself and an Interventionist at Bradford Health Services in Alabama, said in a recent workshop in Tennessee that living with an addict, “is like living with an emotional terrorist.” Source: Crossville Chronicle
