A Change in Circumstances
In 1993, the Grapevine published an anthology of articles titled The Home Group: Heartbeat of AA. In 1999, we conducted a readership survey and many respondents indicated that they'd like to see a special section in the magazine devoted to the Home Group. In January 2000, the editors put out a call for articles on this topic and material began flooding in with the clear message that AA's heart is still beating, sure and strong. With this issue, we are happy to continue an ongoing section in the Grapevine featuring the Home Group--where it all begins in AA.
