The second issue of 24 Newsletter has arrived at Stepstudy HQ, and it is a certified Good Read.

For those not familiar with the publication, 24 Newsletter is produced by the folks on East Ridge, an intentional community founded by AA old-timer and editor of the 12×12 Tom Powers.

Here’s a bit to whet your appetite:

“Many recoveries are never interrupted. They just proceed on and on to deeper degrees of sanity and reach a point of real spiritual awakening. It is possible, however, to take this Program and twist it. There are a few of us who do not value what is coming to us, who do not see the nature of this gift even if it is in our laps. I took my early growth in AA as an indication that I was really a pretty smart guy. I got all renewed in the smart-guy department and I began to take the parts of the Program I liked and leave out the parts I didn’t like. And this progressed to the point where the part of the Program that I didn’t like was the sobriety part.”
(Tom Powers, describing his relapse in Sanity—the Heart of the Program)
