AA Literature Supplements

I thought it might be useful to post references to AA materials that are used in our meetings. You can comment on any of these posts and subscribe to automatically receive them as they’re added.

I will post these prior to our Saturday meetings to enable the group to all have access.

3rd Step Prayer From As Bill Sees It With A Slight Modification In Wording Using ‘My Transcendence’ rather than ‘Victory’

210 Out of Bondage At Step Three, many of us said to our Maker, as we understood Him: “God, I offer myself to Thee—to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt.
