New Forum suggestion/ request

Post by Tuff Gong » Sun Oct 23, 2011 11:21 am

I'd like to suggest a new forum catagory: Personal faith/ practice and AA. This could be a forum where the 12 steps and traditions are discussed in concert with ones particular beliefs and religion. This would give me the ability to learn from other sober members who are also Buddhists. Similarly Christians could share their experience.

Could be:

1) AA and Buddhism
2) AA and Christianity
3) AA and Judaism
4) AA and Islam
5) AA and Atheism/ Agnosticism

Thanks,

Dan
I have no issues with God. It's His judgemental fanclub that bothers me.

I am not sure how that fits in with the Unity. "Our common welfare should come first..." Our common solution has nothing to do with religious practices.

Just my opinion though.
Step 6 is "AA's way of stating, the best possible attitude one can take in order to make a beginning on this lifetime job... with most of them we shall have to be content with patient improvement." 12&12 Step Six, p.65

I agree with Paige. I'm sure you all know where I am faith-wise but I don't feel we want to have sections where we can all stick to our own "kind", for want of a better term. I feel this is where such a system would lead.

Dan, I think that we share a lot of these ideas in the discussion forum.
