CoDA: Help Needed For Interesting Service Work

July 18th 2019

CoDA World Service has a proud record of doing that, answering within hours when possible, never more than two days. That is imperiled now by the lack of more help.

June 8th 2019

“EMOTIONAL SOBRIETY” The conclusion of CoDA’s Service Concept Seven reads: “... Since issues over authority, will, money, property, and prestige can and do arise in service work, trusted servants need to practice emotional sobriety, including anonymity, humility, tolerance, gratitude, making amends, and forgiveness.” Since being in service work in CoDA, I have discovered the need to practice emotional sobriety (emosbr.)

Our 11th tradition also states, "Our public relations policy is based on attr ...Continue Reading
