About Speaker Meetings

This is a special meeting format where a different speaker is invited each week to share about their recovery after the guided meditation.

  • 20 minute guided meditation
  • Guest speaker shares for 30-40 minutes

  • Closing announcements and dedication of merit

Virtual Parking Lot: As with all meetings, we stay online after the meeting for casual fellowship, to exchange contact information and to answer questions.
