Many of us, who are Michael Jackson Supporters, have been listening to the song 'Man in The Mirror" for years. The point of the song is for us to make that change...not dream that change. Andrew Himes is a living example of someone who was really able to make that change. It is not an easy thing to do! It is hard to change the political/religious/social
values which we have been raised in. Not everyone can break the mold. Mr. Himes will share his fascinating journey with us.
Andrew Himes is a Seattle writer, filmmaker, technologist, founder of the Voices Education Project, co-founder of Poets Against the War, and author of The Sword of the Lord: The Roots of Fundamentalism in an American Family. He is the grandson of John R. Rice, the prolific and influential 20th century dean of Christian fundamentalists, and the son, brother, nephew, and cousin of many more Baptist preachers. He is a co-founder of the Compassionate Action Network, and a signer and advocate of the Charter for Compassion.
For all the Michael Jackson Supporters, you will appreciate Andrews philosophy;
"I want my legacy to be a world that is more just, more compassionate, more sustainable, and more peaceful. I want to leave a world in which children have hope, safety, and opportunity. I want to display and enable more compassion and joy in the world."
Come join us to hear his extraordinary and unforgettable story.

Our guest today is Dr. Douglas D. Himes. Dr. Himes is a participant in the International Christian Recovery Coalition. Among other items, Dr. Himes will be telling us about his latest book, Higher Power: Seeking God in 12-Step Recovery. And I am pleased to say that I was asked to write an endorsement of this book and did so.
Douglas D. Himes, Ph.D., is a trained spiritual director, as well as retreat and workshop leader. He provides spiritual counsel at Cumberland Heights (a leading alcohol and drug treatment center, in Nashville, Tennessee). Many years back, I was honored to address patients and staff at Cumberland on the spiritual history of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Doug will tell us briefly about his background, family, religion, education, and present work. He knows his Bible and his Big Book. And—like the authors of the Big Book—plainly states that the much-used and overused “higher power” language in 12 Step programs was intended to refer to God, and how to find Him. Doug will also tell us about his writings, his counseling approaches, and what he does to advance the Christian recovery movement. And now to Doug Himes. Take it away, Doug.
