"Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understand Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out." www.aa.org/assets/en_US/en_step11.pdf
"Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the lever of press, radio, and films."
While the trustees hold final responsibility for A.A.’s world service administration, they should always have the assistance of the best possible standing committees, corporate service directors, executives, staffs and consultants. Therefore, the composition of these underlying committees and service boards, the personal qualifications of their members, the manner of their induction into
service, the systems of their rotation, the way in which they are related to each other, the special rights and duties of our executives, staffs, and consultants,together with a proper basis for the financial compensation of these special workers will always be matters for serious care and concern.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Only you can decide whether you think A.A. is for you. Try to keep an open mind on the subject. If the answer is YES, we will be glad to show you how we stopped drinking ourselves.
A.A. does not promise to solve your life's problems. But we can show you how we are learning to live without drinking "one day at a time." We stay away from that "first drink." If there is no first one, there cannot be a tenth one. And when we got rid of alcohol, we found that life became much more manageable.
Meaning of the Circle-Triangle Symbol
The circle stands for the world of AA and the
triangle stands for AA's Three Legacies of
Recovery, Unity and Service, within our wonderful new world, we have found freedom from our fatal obsession.
That we have chosen this particular
symbol is perhaps no accident. The priest and seers of antiquity regarded the circle enclosing triangle as a means of warding off spirits and evil and AA's circle and triangle of Recovery, Unity and Service has certainly meant the same to us and much more.
