A Team Effort

1 min read

I presently attend a weekly meeting led by a woman who is half my age and who inspires me. She has lost 40 pounds (18 kg) and is really grateful for what OA has done for her. She gets on her knees and says a short prayer to her Higher Power both after awakening and before going to bed.

But she frequently has trouble making it to the meeting on time. She usually arrives five or ten minutes late. She has even come half an hour late.

So what I do is arrive on time and open the meeting. She gave me a key to the meeting room, which is in a local church. That way, I can give service by allowing the meeting to start on time, and she can give service as leader of the meeting.
