Just Put "IT" on the Blackboard
My home group meets 4 days a week on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at 12:05 P.M. We call ourselves the Spiritual Progress Group.
The meetings here in Mississippi are different from meetings in Michigan. There are still smoking meetings everyday and not very many speaker meetings. (I don't attend the smoking meetings as I am a recovered nicotine addict.) The big thing is there are only two Big Book Study's. I went to one and no one showed up. The other I have been invited to but I have not attended yet. I cannot find any 12 & 12 study groups.
I miss my Big Book study groups and felt sad that I could not get to the only one in town. And here is how this program works, just put "it" on the blackboard. You see, many years ago I had no place to go for Thanksgiving. I told the Alano Club Manager we should have Thanksgiving Dinner here, at the club. He said, "Put it on the board".
We had a marvelous Thanksgiving dinner that many attended. That was 24 years ago and I believe they still have holiday dinners there several times a year. So, with that in mind, I put my desire for a Big Study "on the board". Or should I say I brought it up at our home group meeting. The Spiritual Progress Group now meets five days a week and Wednesday is our Big Book Study! And for that... I am grateful!
