New Forum suggestion/ request

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 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.

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.
