AA Thought for the Day

To Try Repeatedly
"This is the Step that separates the men from the boys." So declares a well-loved
clergyman who happens to be one of A.A.'s greatest friends. He goes on to explain
that any person capable of enough willingness and honesty to try repeatedly Step
Six on all his faults—without any reservations whatever—has indeed come a long
way spiritually, and is therefore entitled to be called a man who is sincerely trying
to grow in the image and likeness of his own Creator.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Six) p. 63

Thought to Ponder . . .
Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional, growing spiritually is up to me.

AA-related 'Alconym'
C H A N G E D  =   Choosing Honesty Allows New Growth Each Day.

Thank you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
peyton
