Delegate’s Letter – April 2022

Hi Friends,

I hope this message finds you all doing well as we continue our work in our second year of our service term. Maybe some of you are starting to feel alittle more comfortable with what goes into serving the Area and this fellowship. I do hope that is the case and if not, no worries you are right where you are supposed to be and keep taking it one day at a time. You are not alone! I am writing to keep in touch and share with you as the 2022 World Service Conference is on the horizon.

As I prepare for the Conference, it is easy to think about the journey that I can look back on and the journey that lies ahead while all the while focusing with gratitude on the day and my experiences. A recent reading in our daily reader sparked me to reflect further.

I love page 107 in our One Day at a Time in Al-Anon (B-6). It has me thinking of what I call the 4D’s of our program: “First I Dream, then I Do, then I Detach and then I let God Determine the outcome”. Helpful concept indeed for me!

The Art of Welcoming Today

Lori’s heart often thinks of the many families and friends of alcoholics who have been unable to attend meetings or have not found Al-Anon yet due to various reasons over the past several months. Across the state, some groups are able to start resuming face-to-face meetings, some are transitioning with a virtual component, and some remain temporarily virtual. The virtual world has ushered in new opportunities for people to find help and hope in Al-Anon, while at the same time has added some challenges and obstacles. In this document, she shares some thoughts on welcoming in today’s new world.
