Responses from readers to the February and May 1999 issues on the topic of using the Lord's Prayer at AA meetings.

I am always glad to get the Grapevine in the mail. I open it quickly and enjoy every bit of it. I'm even grateful for the articles that get me upset because in these articles I find something in myself that needs work. The article "How Others See Us" was a case in point. Being a Christian, I immediately took offense at someone not wanting to say the Lord's Prayer. I thought to myself, "This is what I got sober with, and it meant a lot to me to hear it at the end of a meeting." But after much thought, I decided that the author of the article is both right and wrong, in my opinion (which is all I have).
