To Be Of Service
The Recovery Book Committee is looking for writers to produce commentary on a few of the SCA “characteristics”.
The type of writings can be summed up as similar to what the AA 12&12 has done with the Steps and Traditions. They are not personal stories, but more from the viewpoint of a non-specific member and general language, including as much experience and “solution” so others may identify with the characteristic.
Please announce or pass this along at your meetings and Intergroup.
If interested respond to either:

A word about sponsorship. Sponsorship is two people with the same problem helping each other to work the program. Many SCA members are seeking sponsors to be part of their program of recovery. A sponsor may be (but not limited to) someone who has made some progress in sexual-recovery and shares that experience on a continuous, individual basis with a fellow addict. Would all those who are willing to serve as a S.C.A. sponsor, please let your meeting(s) know.
In order to keep our recovery, it is suggested that we can help others through service. Chairing a meeting, sponsoring a fellow addict, or participating in local, regional or international positions are just a few examples of service. These actions can break our isolation, form community, meet the needs of SCA members and meetings, and ultimately help us stay sober. Consider making service a regular part of your recovery.
