This week we continued our work on Step 12, in our new format on “The Principles and Promises of Step 12 in the AA Big Book.”
We read and discussed “To Wives” in the AA Big Book up to page 106:3.
We also read and discussed “A Disease of the Body” from the appendixes in the Brown Book — Overeaters Anonymous page 190:3
During our next meeting, I would like us to continuing reading the chapters in the AA Big Book. And, I would like us to read the appendixes of the brown Overeaters Anonymous book. There are some wonderful insights in there.
Other literature will be added as needed.
The homework is to read and highlight the sections in the AA Big Book Chapter 8 “The Wives” and to write on what you highlight.
Whereas when we did the BBA, we wrote on the questions that we were provided, this time, we will have our own personal experience of what the AA Big Book means to us.
Every time before you begin doing any part of the reading or writing, remember to say the “Set Aside Prayer” and bring your spiritual awareness of God, as you understand Him, into this process.
We recover for the sole purpose of carrying the message to those who still suffer and to be of maximum service to God and others.
Looking forward to “seeing” you all next week!
Peace: it does not mean to be in a place where there is no trouble, noise, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.”(author unknown)
