Whose experience is important?

Whose experience is important?

In the Twelve Step movement, we often feature outstanding speakers at large anniversary meetings.  In some ways, this makes celebrities of them….. their personal stories seem to be deemed more important that those of others. We should accept such large meetings for what they are: Part entertainment, part socialization, and part celebration. The real work of our fellowship, however, lies in ordinary, continuous activity in the groups.

The most important experience to be shared is not the dramatic or humorous account heard at the large meeting. What really works to keep us sober is the experience we share with each other. This can survive long after the powerful speech is forgotten.

I’ll remember today that I can find help and growth in talking with different people I meet at regular meetings.
