Transfer of Power

For a number of years, my wife and I have carried on a regular correspondence with an AA member serving a thirty-year sentence in the tough, brutal confines of the California prison system. He's been inside this time for eight years and celebrated seven years clean and sober in August.

He wrote to me recently and related a story that shows to great effect that a power greater than ourselves is at work in our lives, if we acknowledge that power--even in a desolate place like prison.
