The Pleasant Surprise
You can come to our centers where the actual information can be seen–particularly The Wilson House at Bill Wilson’s birthplace. You can listen to audio tapes and view video segments on public television. You can run to used bookstores and surf the net. You can go to seminaries, libraries, and archives. You can borrow a book. Or you can read the details in The Oxford Groupand Alcoholics Anonymous. However you choose to learn about the Oxford Group and its impact on Alcoholics Anonymous in the 1930's, I predict a surprise for you. You’ll see ideas, principles, and practices–often citing the sources in the Bible. You’ll recognize words, phrases, and ideas that appear in A.A. literature, are used in meetings, and underlie the Steps. And I believe if you want to know and understand and help others with our spiritual program of recovery, you will be surprised at the benefits derived from knowing and understanding its sources such as the Oxford Group.
