Dear Friends,This year our clients and staff are looking forward to a special Thanksgiving mealat the Hot Springs Village Church of Christ. The meal will be special because it willbe cooked entirely by members of the congregation and SOZO and friends will bethe only guests in the church Family Life Center. All year long this church makes the clients and staff of SOZO feel special. Theirlove and generosity remind us of God’s wish for all of His children….to love oneanother. I feel so blessed that the SOZO version of faith-based recovery is so much morethan mere abstinence from alcohol and drugs. At SOZO, the focus in not on whatwe’re giving up, but rather on what we’re receiving and where these blessingscome from. We try hard to live up to the goal of being God-centered in all that wedo……..one day at a time…………..all year long. So, at SOZO, giving thanks is "A SOZO THANKSGIVING"

June is the 6th month of the calendar year and A.A. meetings all over the world will be discussing the 6th step and how to become entirely ready to have God remove our shortcomings. In the book, Twelve Steps & Twelve Traditions, the first sentence in the chapter devoted to Step 6 reads, “This is the step that separates the men from the boys”. (Today we might also add, “separates the women from the girls”). In the June 4 reading in the book, “Daily Reflections” the writer for that page says, “The Sixth Step is the last “preparation” Step”. Both of the above quotes make it very clear that this is a very important point in the 12-step recovery process. We could even say that this is a turning point. In separating the men and women from the boys and girls I am assuming that the “men” and “women” are "Step 6 – “Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.”"
God in His wisdom selected the men of SOZO to be the messengers of His goodness. In selecting SOZO men to carry this amazing message of recovery, He did not go to the proud, the mighty, the famous or the brilliant. He went, instead, to the humble, to the sick, to the unfortunate. He Went directly to the addict/alcoholic, the so-called weakling of the world. Well might He have said to us……… “Unto your week and feeble hands, I have entrusted a power beyond estimate. To you has been given that which has been denied the most learned of your fellows. Not to scientists or statesmen, and even my priests, rabbis and ministers have I given this gift of healing other addicts and alcoholics—which I know entrusted YOU. This gift of recovery must be used unselfishly; it carries with it grave responsibility. No day can be too long; no demands "WHY WE WERE CHOSEN"
