Spirit of Fellowship

 

Where would we give this program back if we did not have a spirit of fellowship?

 

To share our hopes and strength with where else could we find the really true Friends?

 

Who would stand by us in adversity when we find ourselves isolated by the disease?

 

A disease that has always made us feels alone and hopelessly lost to everything

 

All my old friends dropped away when I need support I know I could not do it alone

 

I know I was alone too long and I needed the strength that comes only from that spirit

 

I needed the power of the group and a God of my understanding to help me thru life

 

Our program is based on the hope and love and our strength is from caring about others

 

Many have been in dark and lonely places too they are our hope and we are their hope

 

They understand they are our brothers and sisters in fellowship of the spirit

 

They understand and they do not condemn us they have compassion

that comes from the spirit of fellowship

 

We have this bond of love trust and friendship in our common bonds of being in recovery

 

As I learn to trust them I participate in a new friendship

 that give me understanding strength and love

 

I need support and I always have found it through my program and in my home group

 

I learned the lesson of my life thru the teachings of this fellowship I have real freedom

 

I have real happiness today because I practice the 12 steps of recovery

 

With out all the people who came before me I would not have stayed sober

 

And I would still be lost in a sea of despair

thank God for AA and the fellowship that is here today

 

And thank God those others are finding the same trust and love we had found

 

Yes without this fellowship we would quickly lose are hope and strength and be lost again

 

Our Twelfth Step tell us to reach out to others and carry the message of our program

 

Its then the spirit of the fellowship shines thru offering its experience strength and hope

 

Thru a loving caring God who has blessed us with recovery to carry to others who suffer

 

God bless each of you
