What's Happening at Institutional Ministries
I was helping clean up one night after Grace Oasis (the recovery group I facilitate) had ended, when one of the guys pulled me aside and said, "Look around the room and see what you started." I saw what he was talking about: conversations and prayers still going on at several tables, discussions about recovery under God's grace - addicts helping addicts. - Chaplain Phil Merten
