In AA, we have experienced how things work out for the best when organization is kept at a minimum. ~ AA Traditions
Here are some more tradition #9 questions that a group could use to determine if they could be stronger once traditions are better adhered to. Traditions are homicide prevention. They keep us from killing each other. They are the glue that keeps us together, keeps us coming back, and gives us clear directions on a true democratic process that most organizations can only dream of.
- Do we try to understand and support the service structure?
- Do we do our part in helping AA’s different service bodies carry the message?
- Do we use patience and humility in performing each AA job we take on?
- Are we aware of all those to whom we are responsible in any AA job?
- Has our group made a point of to discuss the 12 traditions and how they apply to us? The strongest meetings stick to the AA traditions and teach(through workshop, study, and sponsorship) its members how to apply the traditions in all of our affairs. Stick with the winners.
