Popsicle Sticks is not really a topic but rather a style of meeting here in Southeast Michigan.  Tonight, this show will be presented in the form of a popsicle stick meeting.  

A popsicle stick meeting is a meeting where we let our higher power determine what we need to share.  Here in our virtual studio, we have a can full of popsicle sticks.  Each stick has a recovery topic written on it.  We will take turns, randomly picking a stick and then sharing on that topic that was chosen.

Tonight, we do popsicle sticks
