This week's HTYH is the final segment of our Step Six discussion. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. Bill Wilson in his book, "Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions," said: If we would gain any real advantage in the use of this Step on problems other than alcohol, we shall need to make a brand new venture into open-mindedness. We shall need to raise our eyes toward perfection, and be ready to walk in that direction. It will seldom matter how haltingly we...

This week's Here's To Your Health is a continuation of Step Six: "We're entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character." But before we begin I'd like to quote something from Bill W's book, Alcoholics Anonymous: "The man with the grown-up brain and the childish emotions-vanity, self-interest, false pride, jealousy, longing for social approval, to name a few-becomes a prime candidate for alcohol.

He goes on to explain that any person capable of enough willingness and honesty to repeatedly try Step Six on all his faults-without any reservations whatever-has indeed come a long way...

This week's HTYH will begin a discussion of Step Six, but first I want to share that Dick S. who's retired and living in Oklahoma visited WUMC's Monday night 12 & 12 meeting to celebrate his 28th year of sobriety. Dick was one of three people who started WUMC's 12 & 12 meeting and was pleased to see it's survived and thrived. The topic for discussion was Tradition Ten, Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinion on outside issues; hence the AA name ought never be drawn into public controversy. Dick...
