Call in to speak with the host
Our guest today is Christian recovery leader Don C. from the Santa Rosa, California, area. I'm quite familiar with this area because my parents had a wonderful home in nearby Sebastopol where my own family spent many hours as visitors for some 20 years. And the visits often took us over to Don's territory for flower exhibits, county fair days, and other outings.
Often, I am able to recount the personal contacts I have had with our Christian leaders; but Don's case has been different. Don has done lots of recovery work with alcoholics and addicts in his area. He has fully supported the mission of the International Christian Recovery Coalition (www.ChristianRecoveryCoalition.com) and posted many of our historical items on his Web site. He has a great Web site--which he will tell you about. But we are in Hawaii, Don is in central California, and Don has had health and other problems which limited our contact until we met him in Northern California last month.
However, Don C. now has an important post in the recovery arena. He also drove from Santa Rosa to the San Jose Area to meet with several Christian recovery leaders, and Ken and me, to discuss networking, conferences, and disseminating more information about the role that God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible have played in recovery from alcoholism and addiction and can play today.
Don will tell us about these things. He will also fill us in on his upbringing, family, jobs, education, and relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ. And he will tell us a bit about his drinking and addiction experiences, as well as the important recovery work he is doing now. We look forward to hearing lots about Don C.'s godly efforts in the future.
And now--take it away, Don!
It's good to talk.
