Coming to Believe

After 29 years of sobriety, a member gets a completely new understanding of Step Two

Sometimes go to a Friday night “Came to Believe” meeting. The last one I went to was, as usual, well worth it. At this particular meeting, the format calls for the meeting leader to give a short introduction and choose a selection from our AA book Came to Believe. The group members take turns reading paragraphs and then the meeting opens for individual sharing. Last week’s meeting was really uplifting.

To be precise, I received a completely new understanding of Step Two. After 29 years of sobriety, I am always amazed when such a thing happens. But it’s not uncommon.
