A Group Of Drunks, the Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous, or a ‘Home Group’ Meeting are commonly used by members of Alcoholics Anonymous as representations of a Higher Power.
But, for the purposes of the 12 Step Program, this conception of God is insufficient.
Step 4: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Step 5: Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Step 11: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
A member who has a Group of Drunks as their conception of God must therefore:
1. Confess the findings of the Fourth Step to the membership of a meeting.
2. Pray to the membership of a meeting, and act in accordance with its will.
