A Bigger God
I recently asked a newcomer, "Have you gotten a sponsor yet?" She said no. "How do you do that?" I told her all you have to do is ask.
"Okay, how about you?" she said. "Will you be my sponsor?"
For a split second, I forgot to breathe. I didn't mean me. She needed a sponsor with a lot of time, someone with more than a measly three years. And then I heard myself say, "I'd love to sponsor you." It just slipped out. Now I was really in trouble. I'm not a sponsor, I'm a sponsee. I don't have time to sponsor someone else; I have to work my own Steps.
