March 2011: Mission responsible
From the March 2011 Grapevine Magazine
Extend the hand of AA or your sobriety will self-destruct in three seconds
"Some time ago I started putting a meeting schedule into my local library’s copy of the Big Book."
I’ve been hearing the Responsibility Pledge recited lately at some of the meetings I attend. Its official name is the Responsibility Declaration, written by Al S., a Grapevine editor and trustee, and introduced in 1965 at the 30th International Convention in Toronto. What did we ever do before internet search engines?
It got me to thinking: Exactly how do I extend the hand of AA? I know it’s not something my home group can do; it’s something I have to do myself.
