This past Monday, September 7th, the first open meeting of the Love & Tolerance group met at 7:30 pm in the Little Yellow House on Third Avenue in Seaside, Oregon. In strict adherence to AA’s Third Tradition, the Love & Tolerance group is for all alcoholics of any belief or no belief at all.
We had a rousing start with 13 persons from Seaside and nearby towns in attendance, who shared their experience, strength and hope about staying sober a day at a time. Two visitors from Asheville, NC were so impressed with the the format and quality of discussion regarding AA’s primary purpose, they were enthusiastic about checking out AA Agnostica and starting a similar group in western North Carolina.
Thus do we grow and expand — one meeting, one town, one geographical area at a time . . .
