We will have fellowship, food, and fun. Please bring lawn chairs, insect repellent, sun screen and a side dish or dessert to share.
Middle Of The Road
“In some sections of A.A., anonymity is carried to the point of real absurdity. Members are on such a poor basis of communication that they don’t even know each other’s last names or where each lives. It’s like the cell of an underground.
“In other sections, we see exactly the revers. It is difficult to restrain A.A.’s from shouting too much before the whole public, by going on spectacular “lecture tours” to play the big shot.”
However, I know that from these extremes we slowly pull ourselves onto a middle ground. Most lecture-giving members do not last too long, and the super anonymous people are apt to come out of hiding respecting their A.A. friends, business associates, and the like. I think the longtime trend is toward the middle of the road – which is probably where we should be.”
