April 2013: Keep the Link Strong
She learned the hard way to play by the rules and not break AA’s connection
TRADITION FOUR: Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or A.A. as a whole.
For the past three and a half years, I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of carrying an AA meeting into one of our womens’ correctional facilities. Along with this wonderful opportunity have been some real growing and learning pains. My hope is to enlighten you and encouraged you to become involved in corrections work if you aren’t already. Hopefully, you can learn from some of my mistakes.
As an alcoholic, I can always focus on the reasons not do this...
