Finding Jesus At A.A. « Jesus Shaped Spirituality
At Alcoholics Anonymous and Alcoholics for Christ meetings, Michael Spencer observes, "community was pursued and community happened. It was clumsy and awkward, and sometimes it wasn't at all pretty. It could make you wince. But it was the real deal. People opened the door of their real lives, let some of the ugliness out, and everyone respected and loved one another through it all. Not what we Christians call community, which is an orchestrated ritual of convincing ourselves we've done a lot of things we actually haven't come near doing.... The Gospels are full of the awareness that God knows the whole story of the woman at the well and the tax collectors by the roadside. He knows it all, and loves us in Jesus with a fierce, unstoppable love."
