This month we put the spotlight on the AA pamphlet, Many Paths to Spirituality. A common misconception about Alcoholics Anonymous is that it is a religious organisation. Since AA groups often rent space in churches, attending an AA meeting in a church hall can often reinforce that impression, and the possibility of hearing a prayer at the end of a meeting can further cement the idea for some. This pamphlet seeks to separate the truth from myth on the matter.
The Huntercombe Recovery Group in Slough will be holding another AA and Al-Anon shared platform meeting on Sunday, August 12th at their usual time of 7:30 pm. Coffee from 7 pm.
