A friend in Austin forwarded this site to me. I knew Charlie from my home-group! I adored him and had the privilege of speaking with him about how he reconciles the religious undertones of AA with his own beliefs (primarily saying the Lord's prayer at the end of meetings). He told me that his "God" was love and energy, and that when he holds hands with members of AA he is tapping into the Universal energy, and that words are just words. I loved that explanation and it has changed my sobriety, and I continue to carry his message!
Thank you Charlie! I hope you are riding the big trollies in the sky! xoxo

You will remember me from your meetings. I just ran across this site which was advertised on aaagnostica.
Thanks for putting it together. I think I've just decided to open a Beyond Belief agnostics and freethinkers meeting at 10AMi Sundays in Miles City, Montana. I'll be using some of your printed material of course--I suppose this is a request for permission although I'm really quite sure you will appreciate whatever use AA can make of your thinking and writing.
Best regards to you and the group. I do write to Melinda occasionally. And I have my ticket for the WAFT convention in LA on November 6-8.

When I visit my son in Austin I always attend your meetings. There are no AA agnostic meeting within 200 miles of my southern Illinois town.

When I visit my son in Austin, I always look forward to attending your meetings. I have no agnostic AA groups within 200 miles of my town!

It was time for me to find this site and I'm grateful.
