AA Thought for the Day
My apologies for the error in yesterday's reading. It should have read:
"Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us."

Meditation and Prayer
We liked A.A. all right, and were quick to say that it had done miracles.
But we recoiled from meditation and prayer as obstinately as the
scientist who refused to perform a certain experiment lest it prove
his pet theory wrong. Of course we finally did experiment, and when
unexpected results followed, we felt different; in fact we knew different;
and so we were sold on meditation and prayer.
