We all are addicted in some way.
When we learn to identify our addiction, embrace our brokenness, and surrender to God, we begin to bring healing to ourselves and our world. In Breathing Under Water, Richard Rohr shows how the gospel principles in the Twelve Steps can free anyone from any addiction- from an obvious dependence on alcohol or drugs to the more common but less visible addiction that we all have to sin.
We cannot stop the drowning waters of our addictive culture from rising, but we must at least see our reality for what it is, seek to properly detach from it, and build "A Coral Castle and Learn to Breathe Under Water."
The New Testament called it salvation or enlightenment, the Twelve Step program called it recovery.
