Second Tradition

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.


“Because of our kinship in suffering, our channels of contact have always been charged with the language of the heart.”
-- Bill W.
