READINESS TO SERVE OTHERS
. . . our Society has concluded that it has but one high mission–to
carry the A.A. message to those who don’t know there’s a way out.
TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 151
The “Light” to freedom shines bright on my fellow alcoholics as each
one of us challenges the other to grow. The “Steps” to self-
improvement have small beginnings, but each Step builds the “ladder”
out of the pit of despair to new hope. Honesty becomes my “tool” to
unfurl the “chains” which bound me. A sponsor, who is a caring
listener, can help me to truly hear the message guiding me to freedom.
I ask God for the courage to live in such a way that the Fellowship
may be a testimony to His favor. This mission frees me to share my
gifts of wellness through a spirit of readiness to serve others.
