The January Issue of The Point is Posted!

That’s right, y’all. You know where the teasers are (they’re below the short stack). Check out the full issue here, along with The Point’s very own podcast, right here!

Teleservice and Banana Pancakes by Luke H.
“More often than not I don’t know a thing about what I’m doing when I first try something, and what I do know is usually wrong. Such has been my experience with Teleservice in San Francisco.”

Another Perspective on Service by John W.
“As a grateful heir to the legacy of those who walked the walk before me, I found the limitless lode would only pay dividends if mined for the rest of my life with the proceeds given away entirely.”

And don’t miss out on these gems: Letters to the Editor, Little Sister, Follow the Golden Rule, and much, much more!

Parents in Recovery: Reading & Discussion

A doctor said to us, “Years of living with an alcoholic is almost sure to make any wife or child neurotic. The entire family is, to some extent, ill.” (Pg. 122, Big Book).

All are invited to share their experience, strength and hope at a Zoom reading and discussion of “The Family Afterward,” starting next week, from 6:30-7:30pm PST over four consecutive Tuesdays (January 12th, 19th, 26th & February 2nd).

The Big Book further advises families to realize that, “all will not be fair weather,” as the alcoholic starts their recovery. Early recovery is a major test for families, often continuing for many years. But there is no going back if we want healing for ourselves and our loved ones. Family challenges faced by recovering alcoholics are not unique to each, whether they have “time,” are in early recovery, or are new to A.A. We are not alone.
