By The Power of God
A Guide to Early AA Groups & Forming Similar Groups Today
Author: Dick B.
Everybody has a right to be wrong in their opinions, but nobody has a right to be wrong in their FACTS; Get the facts on recovery from the founders and authentic historical documentation...
I want to introduce you to a publication that is being read in and around AA as a vital part of understanding the success that the pioneers of AA had in the program. And it is also a source of vital statistical information pertaining to the "Faith of the Founders" and the "God of their understanding".
I have been asking myself why most of the people I meet in our family and fellowship are reluctant to look back into the factual history of the program that many say has saved their lives ? What is it about the talk of God, or more particularly Jesus, that has so many people troubled to the point they won't even mention God or Jesus in a meeting ?
I have shared this book with a number of old timers and a few new comers who have raved about the authenticity, and accuracy of the information contained in it... and the clarity with which this information has been presented!
I want to get back to the successes they had early on, by opening the discussion and witness among those members of this fellowship who have had the very same experiences as the founders; and have been relieved of the compulsion that is part of the phenomena of craving; and have done so by the Grace of God as a result of sincere and fervent prayer!
You can log on to the site at www.dickb.com and begin to read and examine the materials, or you can contact me and let me know if you would like a copy of this book for yourself...
I'm looking for 10 to 20 people who profess Jesus and the God of the Bible as their higher power and would like to participate in a good old fashioned "Good Book & Big Book Meeting" just as the founders did in Akron !
I'm open to your thoughts so contact me and let me know if you'd be interested in being a founding member of an AA meeting group that is committed to bearing witness to the truth and history of the program!
I'm grateful for the fellowship, but disappointed by the lack of knowledge that is conveyed by it's membership with respect to the Power of God and Jesus Christ as it was acknowledged and presented by the founders
Let me hear from you !
