Dick B., writer, historian, retired attorney, Bible student, CDAAC, and active and recovered member of the Alcoholics Anonymous Fellowship will be speaking at various locations in California between September 10 and October 1, 2010.
Dick is the author of 39 published titles and more than 450 articles on the history and Bible roots of Alcoholics Anonymous. He has addressed 8 seminars at The Wilson House in Vermont, groups at Dr. Bob's hometown of St. Johnsbury in Vermont, meetings in New York City and Washington, D.C., Maryland, West Virginia, Florida, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Ohio, Arkansas, British Columbia, Oregon, Arizona, Hawaii, and California, as well as history cruises in the Caribbean and to Alaska.
Each talk has carried a different historical message, but all have been centered around 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, Ohio in 1935. And also around the role that God, His Son Jesus Christ, the Bible, and the early A.A. principles and practices can play in Alcoholics Anonymous and recovery fellowships today--whatever their diversity, variety, composition, or approach. Dick has, of late, been accompanied either by his son Don B. or his son Rev. Ken B.
The requests from recovery, treatment, counseling, and Christian groups have continued, and this Fall, Dick and his son Ken will be meeting with individuals and leaders and speaking at meetings in
The San Diego Area, as well as Escondido and Carlsbad.
Orange County at San Juan Capistrano, Huntington Beach, and Costa Mesa. A highlight of his appearance will be his talk at Lifelines The Crossing Church in Costa Mesa.
