Which God? Which?

 

AA Grapevine readers respond to "Should We Go Easy on the God Stuff?" featured in the April 2002 issue

Sometime during the winter of 1995, I was attending a three-speaker AA meeting at one of the old clubhouses in Brooklyn. That night, the first speaker started by saying how praying to God had helped him get sober. He had barely begun his story when a young man sitting up front interrupted and asked, "Which God?" At first, the speaker ignored him, but no sooner did he try to continue than the man interrupted again. "Which God?" he demanded. Taken aback, the speaker asked, "What do you mean, 'Which God?' God is God." He tried to go on, but the young man became increasingly agitated, repeatedly asking, "Which God? Which God?"
