CAL Chat

Sep 3, 2016

The conversation continues (in part 2 of 4 of Episode 3) with Cindy and her favorite book, the "Al-Anon/Alateen Service Manual 2014-2017" (P-24/27).  We explore pages 68-69 about moving forward, what progress realistically looks like, and how disagreements can actually be a good thing!  Pages 229 and 235 are also highlighted from the Concepts Amendments section and how it reminded me of a ring being passed down in a family.  Cindy shares about how this fellowship is an opportunity to belong to something bigger than ourselves and where newcomers and long timers can meet together on pages 26-27.

QUOTABLE MOMENT FROM CINDY:

  • "...old-timers who've been around a long time have something unique to give and the newer members also have something unique to give and there is a place for all of it – and I find it in the Service Manual."
