Alcoholics Anonymous History: See You in California

In one month, my son Ken B. and I will be speaking at conferences and seminars and having personal meetings in many California locations.

The topic, as always, will be the role that God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible played in the origins, history, founding, original program, and astonishing successes of the early A.A. Christian Fellowship founded in Akron in 1935. And. The role they can and should play in recovery today among those who want God's help and will go to any length to seek it. Hebrews 11:6

If you live in the Orange County or Los Angeles areas, we will be staying at the Fairmont Newport Beach Hotel in the first week (Sept 11--). We will be glad to meet with you. And we will be speaking at Covina on Tuesday to the James Club Fellowships of Southern California. I will be speaking at Lifelines--The Crossing Church in Costa Mesa at 7:00 PM on Friday. We'll be meeting with the staff at Pacific Hills Treatment Centers in San Juan Capistrano--and later we will conclude at Huntington Beach at His Place Church--Food by Roman Cucina. Music by a great combo. And then the talk.

If you live in the San Diego area, we will be speaking at Escondido, San Diego, and Carlsbad the next week.

And our last week will be filled with talks at San Jose with the CityTeam staff, at Livermore at a Cornerstone Church location, at Auburn, at Oroville--in both cases at a Church of the Nazarene, and at Brentwood at the Golden Hills Church.

We will have books available.

And we will be talking lots about our new class: "Introductory Foundations for Christian Recovery" -- a 4 DVD class (1 hour each) with guides--that will get you up to speed on the Christian roots of A.A. in Vermont and New England, the Christian upbringing of Bill W. and Dr. Bob in Vermont, the special emphasis Bill Wilson received about what the Great Physician Jesus Christ could do for him, the real details of Bill's "white light" experience at Towns, how the first three AAs got sober, the simple 7 point program they used, the 14 practices they employed, the 75% success rate they attained, and the changes that took place as the Big Book was being printed.

Contact for details on the schedule, the class, and possible personal visists.
