Jun 26, 2021 Season 2 Episode 157
Michael L. & Lee M.

Kevin Petersen joins Michael once again to talk about the concept of conformance, and the A.A. way.  Kevin is a marriage and family therapist with many years of sobriety. You can learn more about Kevin's work at his web site,  and by reading his book entitled Chronic Hope, or by listening to Kevin's Podcast , The Chronic Hope Podcast.

CONFORMING TO THE A.A. WAY

We obey A.A. 's Steps and Traditions because we really want them for ourselves. It is no longer a question of good or evil; we conform because we genuinely want to conform Such is our process of growth in unity and function. Such is the evidence of God's grace and love among us.

A.A. COMES OF AGE, p. 106

It is fun to watch myself grow in A.A. I fought conformity to A.A. principles from the moment I entered, but I learned from the pain of my belligerence that, in choosing to live the A. A. way of life, I opened myself to God's grace and love. Then I began to know the full meaning of being a member of Alcoholics Anonymous.
