Where Spirituality and Science Meet in Recovery - Second Sunday

Center City, MN

Follow your spirit—and spend your Sundays with us once a month.

Second Sunday Banner


In this day and age, is it hard to be fully invested in the spiritual model of addiction recovery? Science has shown us far more about the brain-disease model of addiction than writers of "We Agnostics" could have imagined. Hold on to your critical thinking as we examine evolving concepts of God through the ages and see how, in recovery, we all drink from the same water of spirituality.
