When James Hampton stepped into his first Alcoholics Anonymous meeting as an atheist, being asked to find a higher power didn’t come naturally.
But he soon discovered an incredible sense of calm in giving over his fears and doubts to something greater than himself.
Now 4 years sober, James and I talk about the ease he’s found in sitting with discomfort and the faith he’s grown in the power of prayer.
And he reflects on his work as a high school drama teacher and the faith it gives him in the goodness of humanity.
Because how do you handle challenge, when you’ve let go of the one thing you’ve used to cope?
