Meeting in God's Place

A group in Laramie, Wyoming move their meeting to the home of an ailing member

After they learned of a fellow member's illness, the group moved the meeting to the dining room table in his home.

AA meetings for me, and thousands of others, are a place to meet and talk with God. I do that many times a day -- driving my commute to work, working in the yard, in the mountains among all his glory, but what I want is the spiritual meetings. I have heard that there are many out there, but it seems that they are few and far between for me.

I do have one spiritual meeting I remember which has lasted my fellow group members and me nearly two years. I had been attending the Back to Basics meeting. One of the members was an elderly man who played golf every day there wasn't any snow....
