Dear Grapevine

A matter of Tradition

MY Step group uses a Tradition as the topic for one of our weekly meetings each month. Some time ago, we substituted the Grapevine article on the Tradition for the reading in the "Twelve and Twelve." We found that the Grapevine Tradition article sparked a more spirited discussion and presented a more contemporary view.

Recent Grapevines appear to have de-emphasized the Traditions by either not publishing an article in a given month or publishing significantly curtailed content. I hope this is reconsidered. [Ed: Grapevine attempts to publish articles on the Traditions each month, and is always seeking new submissions on any of the Traditions. See page 60 for details.]
