The traditions protect the group in much the same way as the steps protect our sobriety
Tradition Two Reads:
For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority — a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.
What is a group?
Is this different than a meeting?
What is a group conscience?
How are they held?
What is the format?
Who runs the group?
Is this hard to believe?
Have you ever had a moment when you were convinced that God must be running the group?
Have you ever had a moment when you doubted God was running the group?
Have you ever started a meeting or organized a group event?
Have you ever fallen into the thought trap that you were the boss?
We have calls
Alex from Austin
What are elder statesmen?
Tell us about their opinions and example.
Are they important?
Do we value them?
Where are they?
Am I absolutely trustworthy, even in secret, with AA Twelfth Step jobs or other AA responsibility?
Do I look for credit in my AA jobs? Praise for my AA ideas?
Do I have to save face in group discussion, or can I yield in good spirit to the group conscience and work cheerfully along with it?
Although I have been sober a few years, am I still willing to serve my turn at AA chores?
In group discussions, do I sound off about matters on which I have no experience and little knowledge?
What would you say to the new guy?
