"God as we understood Him" slowly, it dawned on me that I could use my concepts of my traditional God, the Great Spirit, or in my Indian language, Kitchi Munito. I became more aware of what I had previously missed in other A.A. involvement's.

We found that God does not make too hard terms with those who seek Him. To us, the realm of spirit is broad, roomy, all inclusive; never exclusive or forbidding to those who earnestly seek. It is open, we believe, to all men.
When, therefore, we speak to you of God, we mean your own conception of God.

Faith is more than our greatest gift; its sharing with others is our greatest responsibility. May we of A.A. continually seek the wisdom and the willingness by which we may well fulfill that immense trust which the Giver of all perfect gifts has placed in our hands.

Creator grant that I understand my relationship to you.
