OA MEETING


Overeaters Anonymous (OA) offers a program of recovery from compulsive eating using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of OA. Worldwide meetings and other tools provide a fellowship of experience, strength and hope where members respect one another’s anonymity. OA charges no dues or fees; it is self-supporting through member contributions.

OA is not just about weight loss, weight gain or maintenance, or obesity or diets. It addresses physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is not a religious organization and does not promote any particular diet.

OA members differ in many ways, but we are united by our common disease and the solution we have found in the OA program. We practice unity with diversity, and we welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively. Welcome to Overeaters Anonymous. Welcome home.

A chapter of OA meets every Monday evening at the Church of the Good Shepherd beginning at 7:30 p.m.


LAKOTA MISSION 2014




Members of this year's Lakota Mission Team as they were leaving Dulles International Airport Friday morning, June 27, at 6:20 a.m., enroute to Denver, Colorado, where they rented vans to drive the final leg of their trip to the Lakota Reservation in Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Altogether, this year, there are 20 team members representing 5 area churches. Some team members flew and drove out to the reservation earlier to prepare for this year's mission.


JULY STUDY


Rev. Burgess invites you to join him this July in reading and discussing John Dalrymple's book Simple Prayer. The publisher says this about the book: "John Dalrymple wrote many spiritual classics, all stemming from his conviction that prayer is the most important element in Christian living. In this beautiful reissue of his bestselling Simple Prayer, he writes explicitly on prayer, teaching that the simple silent prayer of contemplation is attainable for anyone who seeks to try. What unfolds is a mature yet accessible consideration of all aspects of prayer and how it connects with politics, liberation, poverty, spiritual reading and the experience of the Dark Night."

The class will meet each Sunday in July at 9:00 a.m. in the Adult 2 classroom. Participants are urged to please purchase and download either a Kindle or Nook version of the book, as the few paperback copies that are still available will be late in arriving at the church.
