One Line That's Never Busy

Any time, any place, we can stay "in contact" by means of the "AA network.

TO me AA is a means of communication. Ease of communication is one of the marks of our age. How widely the press, radio, television, telephone and telegraph are now used to convey ideas! Millions of people are involved in producing, maintaining and servicing the electronic equipment which makes these possible, yet we take for granted our AA means of communication besides which the most complicated man-made instrument is like a nursery toy. Through God has come this wonderful Fellowship and the program of AA reaching out to all alcoholics. Catastrophe need never disrupt this service. Do we hear God say, "Sorry, the line is busy" or "Just one moment, please"? It is we alone who break the connection.
