The Bible isn't Conference Approved
Thank you, guys! Love the (slightly) long posts! It's like taking a stroll in your personal park & I appreciate it.
Sponsees: I have to take the stand that I am here to help you recover from alcoholism. I do not know what you are supposed to do, (other than stay sober), think, say, be or buy. I
have to turn in all things to the Father of Lights Who presides over us all, and you will need to do the same. I realize that you may be very foggy & even delusional, & I will help you to be safe. As you stay sober and take the steps, sanity will return & you will find you are able to make sound decisions. If not, then you will learn something!
1. I am an alcoholic & cannot manage my own life.
2. Probably no human power could have relieved my alcoholism.
3. God can and does if I seek Him.
If I can't manage my own life, what makes you think I can manage yours?
There are AA Natzies here as well. I do speak up in a gentle way, when the Spirit moves me, in many group forums. But, ultimately all that I can do is live this program and practice these principles in my
life & remind the Natzies that this is not what we are about and it definitely is NOT in the book. Sometimes it opens the door to change, or at least to discuss it!
I still have to keep reminding myself that this is God's deal & He is in charge. I'm not here to fight a war. I am here to stay sober & help others recover. From alcoholism. Not Kenmore. Or Ken.
Keeping it simple, Sunlight
