August Edition of The Point

The latest edition of The Point, featuring works by local A.A. members, explores how we greet newcomers who are unsure if A.A. is for them and the shifts in perspective experienced by a member in recovery. There is also an audio recording of a member sharing the experience of service through H&I. Find the latest issue here.
