Recovery is an important word. It appears that in the church world it describes a small minority group that is somehow different from the church as a whole.

Drawing on last week’s conversation with our friend Teresa McBean, Executive Director of National Association of Christian Recovery, we continue our conversation with just the two of us about why we think recovery should be part of the everyday fabric for Christian communities.

We would love to see the word “recovery” inspire hope instead of worry or speculation. We see the honesty and transformation that occurs in recovery communities as part of the mission and joy of being called together.
