April 30 is Recovery Sunday

The Recovery Ministries committee of the Episcopal Church of New Hampshire has invited us to set aside Sunday, April 30 (Easter 3) as Recovery Sunday in our diocese. Anyone whose life has been affected by addiction, either their own or the addiction of someone close to them, knows how deeply the disease touches us. Whether the addiction centers on alcohol or drugs or gambling or whatever, the effect is not just a physical malady, but a mental and spiritual one as well. We look to this day to pray for others and ourselves as we uncover our own need for God’s grace in the face of the attachments that pull us away from relationship with God and each other. Since addiction is such a deeply spiritual disease, and recovery from addiction a blessed reprieve from spiritual and physical death, what better place than at the celebration of the Eucharist for us to express our hope for those we love and for ourselves, placing the resurrected Christ at the very center of our lives? Recovery Sunday is a wonderful opportunity for us to reach outside of our own congregations and invite others to come and see. April is Alcohol Awareness Month. There are over 30 of our Episcopal Church of New Hampshire parishes that are host to recovery groups – including both of our congregations. God is doing great things in meeting and common rooms! May we find our Easter joy in the journey together… “Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he had been known to them in the breaking of the bread.”  (Lk 24:35)   Blessings and peace, The Recovery Ministries Committee
