AA, The June 10, 1935 Page, and God's Role

Thanks to our tireless supporter and member of the International Christian Recovery Coalition, attorney Blanton Owens of Georgia just provided the following copy of the "Upper Room" for the day Dr. Bob took his last drink and the alleged founding date of Alcoholics Anonymous.


Daily Devotions for Family
And Individual Use

June 1935


“And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying ….” Matt. 5: 2-12

O DIVINE wonder! To these obscure men and women came the startling words our Lord –
“Ye are the salt of the earth.” “Ye are the light of the world.” Jesus revealed undreamed worth in the common man. He disclosed an unexpected splendor in the clod. One of the immediate results of a surrender to the Master is the ennoblement of life. Made in the image of God, that divine image in man has been marred. Jesus came to restore that image. Through Him, personality is glorified. The poorest life becomes vibrant with new possibilities. The obscurest man or woman is lifted into new and glorious horizons. Humanity becomes invested with new heavenly dignities.

To Thee, O Lord and Master, we would yield our lives. Through the wonders of Thy grace and the miracle of Thy love, make them meet for the Master’s use. In Thy name we make our prayer. Amen.
