A Vision for You

Joe this is really

Another set of promises


We close every podcast episode with a portion of this passage from the Big Book


On page 164  of the Big Book, we find these words:


Joe can you read please?


Our book is meant to be suggestive only. We realize we know only a

little. God will constantly disclose more to you and to us. Ask Him in

your morning meditation what you can do each day for the man who

is still sick. The answers will come, if your own house is in order. But

obviously you cannot transmit something you haven’t got. See to it

that your relationship with Him is right, and great events will come to

pass for you and countless others. This is the Great Fact for us.

Abandon yourself to God as you understand God. Admit your faults to

Him and to your fellows. Clear away the wreckage of your past. Give

freely of what you find and join us. We shall be with you in the

fellowship of the Spirit, and you will surely meet some of us as you

trudge the Road of Happy Destiny.

May God bless you and keep you—until then.
