A Christmas Message From Alcoholics Anonymous Member #1

TO ALL MEMBERS:


Greetings On Our 10th Christmas 1944


Yes, it's in the air! The spirit of Christmas once more warms
this poor distraught world.
Over the whole globe millions are looking forward to that one
day when strife can be forgotten, when it will be remembered that all human beings, even the least are loved by God. When men will hope for the coming of the Prince of Peace as they never hoped before.


But there is another world which is not poor. Neither is it
distraught. It is the world of Alcoholics Anonymous, where thousands dwell happily and secure. Secure because each of us, in his own way, knows a greater power who is love, who is just, and who can be trusted.

Nor can men and women of AA ever forget that only through
suffering did they find enough humility to enter the portals of that New World.


How privileged we are to understand so well the divine paradox that strength rises from weakness, that humiliation goes before resurrection; that pain is not only the price but the very touchstone of spiritual rebirth.


Knowing it's full worth and purpose, we can no longer fear
adversity, we have found prosperity where there was poverty, peace and joy have sprung out of the very midst of chaos. Great indeed, our blessings! And so,-- Merry Christmas to you all-- from the Trustees, from Bobbie and from Lois and me.

Bill W Obviously believed in God. so do we
Celebrate A New Life
