We must look up to the Great Spirit that He may make us strong and not permit this chain to fall from our hands.
A.A.'s Twelfth Step, carrying the message, is the basic service that our fellowship gives; it is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence. A.A. is more than a set of principals; it is a society of recovered alcoholics in action. We must carry A.A.'s message; otherwise we ourselves may fall into decay and those who have not yet been given the truth may die.
"AA Comes of Age" pg. 139
Great Mystery show me that I am a link in the chain.
