On an icy road, the five headed north for a big night of AA. Turns out a more valuable night awaited them

A quick flash of light proving God’s presence is a rare experience for AA members. The Big Book tells us that Bill W.’s story won’t likely be ours. But a group of five of us AAs on a weekend trip were reminded of how present our Higher Powers can be when we least expect it.
