Need Proof of God? Go to a Meeting


The meetings of AA are the only place where Catholics, Jews, Protestants, and even agnostics get together harmoniously on a religious basis. They do not talk theology. Many would say they know nothing about it. What they do know is that in their utter helplessness they were introduced to a Power . . . which made possible a victory that had seemed incredible.

I have listened to many learned arguments about God, but for honest-to-goodness experiential evidence of God -- give me a good meeting of AA!
