The Second Spring: A Story of Redemption Through the Ole Jerry McAuley Mission

Water street has been blessedly used of god not only to lift men from the depths of spiritual ignorance and lifelong rebellion, but in bringing back those who have played the apostate who, for some mess of licentious pottage, have bartered away their birthright.
The Ole Jerry McAuley Mission has been a beacon of hope for destitute alcoholics and addicts since 1912. In Chapter 13 of 'The Dry Dock of a Thousand Wrecks,' author Philip Ilott Roberts chronicles the incredible stories of those who surrendered to Christ Jesus and found a new lease on life.
One such story is that of a man who, after a decade of aimless wandering and self-sabotage, stumbled upon the mission and discovered a community of individuals who had also hit rock bottom. Through his confession and willingness to serve others, he found the strength to overcome his addiction and depression. The episode highlights the importance of faith, confession, and community in finding redemption and a new sense of purpose.
As the man in the story says, 'avenues of service and usefulness have opened up for me which, by Christ's help, I am trying to tread like a man.' Listen to the full episode now here on alcoholfree.com and discover the power of the Ole Jerry McAuley Mission in transforming lives.
