The second step of the 12-step program is, "Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity."

Last week's "Here's To Your Health", was the beginning of a series of articles taken from a South Bend professor's book, titled The Higher Power of the Twelve Step Program, and it's written for believers and non-believers.
