It was in church basements, in recovery meetings gathered (mostly) sitting in circles, where I heard about miracles. Hot off the press! Their honesty helped me more than sitting in rows upstairs ever had. They shared about the Direct Connect they had to God, and they became Divine Connections for me because they made it safe to share even the most embarrassing, frightening things about my personal life.
Over 25 years, this level of honesty ruined me for anything less. So I found some women who, like me through recovery, had entered conversational relationship with the Maker of the Entire Universe. Women who know the Higher Power personally -- and by Name. Twelve years ago, we started gathering in small groups to invite Christ to lead us and guide us. We are still gathering: In tiny groups. Sitting around someone’s kitchen table or somebody else’s living room.
We called these RIB Groups: Recovery in the Bible for Women (RIB). People ask me where I attend church, and I say, "The Church of the New Covenant." "Where is that?", they ask. My reply, "Anywhere two or three are gathered together in His Name… there He is in the midst!"
