47. Question if you like..here is what happened last Sunday...at a 12 step meeting...........

A new member was struggling with the higher power deal.. I was leading the meeting...this member produced a picture of a child, (I will leave it at that) and said basically.."my love for this child is some kind of HP...that is what I can come up with.."
.....Now I am leading the meeting, and there are very few members, this member asks me...."is that ok?" I said..sure..that is ok if that is what you want it to be............."
..... I also said this.."There is no higher power police here, we need to be as open as possible, this is a terrible disease......." done..end of deal...no more..nada..good by, hasta la vista....

.........That is how I run it if I am the leader, and someone asks me about it....I only speak for me..what others do, is there business..........Stuart G.
