"Aspects of Tolerance"

All kinds of people have found their way into A.A. Not too long ago, I sat talking in my office with a member who bears the title Countess. That same night, I went to an A.A. meeting. It was winter, and there was a mild-looking little gent taking the coats. I said, "Who's that?"

And somebody answered, "Oh, he's been around for a long time. Everybody likes him. He used to be one of Al Capone's mob." That's how universal A.A. is today.

We have no desire to convince anyone that there is only one way by which faith canbe acquired. All of us, whatever our race, creed, or color are the children of a living Creator, with whom we may form a relationship upon simple and understandable terms as soon as we are willing and honest enough to try.
