AA Thought for the Day
April 12, 2022
A Novel Idea
My friend suggested what then seemed a novel idea. He said,
"Why don’t you choose your own conception of God?"
That statement hit me hard. It melted the icy intellectual mountain
in whose shadow I had lived and shivered many years. I stood
in the sunlight at last. It was only a matter of being willing to
believe in a Power greater than myself. Nothing more was
required of me to make my beginning.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (Bill's Story) p. 12
