One of the nice things about having an outlined format for A.A. meetings, is that it makes it easier to maintain a reasonably structured setting for having a meaningful meeting.
Often, there might be a list of appropriate or suggested meeting topics.
Sometimes, I wish we had some sort of format with suggested topics here in our forum. But, then, again... maybe we do... since our forum is divided into topics.
When activity gets quiet here in the forum -- I often begin to wonder if we've discussed the heck out of just about everything, and it's time to archive this forum -- and just start a new one!
Maybe we need a new Category... such as "Tell us about your problems"
Or, for those who are following much of the suggestions aready posted here in the forum, we could start a new Category titled "Tell us about your lack of problems!"
Maybe we need to start something like Daily Journals... or Blogs... where each member can share their own Journal or Blog with us.
Maybe.... your suggestions and feedback would help!
Perhaps you've had some ideas that you've thought about, or you see a need, where we can be more effective in helping the still suffering alcoholics... or a way that we can help encourage and support and help each other and other others.
Well???? How about it? Tell me what you think or what you are experiencing... or, what you might like to experience. But, whatever you do... go ahead and do something!
