Grateful Sober Holidays

The writer of “No Amount of Razor Wire” shares about a beautiful moment he had while doing service in a maximum-security prison over the holidays. He wrote of the “gut-level” sharing by the AA members inside. “The power of God runs deep,” he writes. “During the ride home, I felt such a sense of peace.”

Are you involved in AA service during the holidays? What are some ways you help out or give back to your friends and family or at the workplace?
