Many false notions operate in false pride. The need for direction
to live a decent life is satisfied by the hope experienced
in the A.A. Fellowship. Those who have walked the way for
years--a day at a time--say that a God-centered life has limitless
possibilities for personal growth. This being so, much hope
is transmitted by the elder AA's.
I thank my Higher Power for letting
me know that He works through other people, and I thank Him
for our trusted servants in the Fellowship who aid new members
to reject their false ideals and to adopt those which lead
to a life of compassion and trust. The elders in A.A. challenge
the newcomers to "Come To"--so that they can "Come to Believe."
I ask my Higher Power to help my unbelief.
