If you would like to contact Stephanie (she welcomes feedback from the group on our progress:
Donations are urgently needed towards the cost of the website.
Stephanie says: “If this group means anything to you send us a dollar, five dollars, ten whatever you can afford. We need it. I am trying to be a very very good steward of our money.
Every week our storage needs get bigger as each workshop gets put up and stored on the website and that is expensive. I did not put up the Spiritual Experience because I
did not want any further expense”.
Please send donations of whatever size to:
P O Box 531
12 x 12 Page 163 Tradition Seven
Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
Look up: integrity
Q1. Finish up your questions on the spiritual experience. Are you in a good place? [You need to be to make amends].
Q2. After looking at your calendar for this month and the checks written over the last six months what would someone who did not know you think is important in your life?
Q3. Read all of Tradition Seven in the 12 x 12 – in one sitting if possible.
Q4. This is a hard question which you do not have to answer in writing, just think about. How many people go to your program because they want to get xyz? And how many say: ”I am going to give xyz to the program today?”
Q5. Next week bring 3 x 5 cards
Make a note of Stephanie’s e-mail as you will need it when we start making amends.
You need to be in a good place to make amends. I am never going to tell someone who is not in a good place to make amends. I suggest instead that they keep doing the spiritual disciplines and then make the amends. Making amends is one of the most important parts of the work. At least 90% of you have a relationship with God, you know about an Action Plan, Quiet Time and accountability. Those are the spiritual disciplines you need in place to go out and make really healthy recovery amends.
We do not make amends in a hurry and to get it off our chest. We do it to be right with ourselves with God and another human being. It is not to be rushed and it is not to be done for self-centered and selfishness reasons. It is for integrity – so you can look at yourself in the mirror and then when you go to God for help you are asking with integrity. We need a lot of integrity and humility when making amends.
