STEP TWELVE, PART TWO
My name is Shlomo.
I am a food addict and compulsive overeater.
Let us get to the assignments.
Carrying the message.
1. Read the chapter WORKING WITH OTHERS in the Big Book. This chapter gives sponsoring directions although the word 'sponsor' came into use only after the Big Book was written. Mark the sentences that you think are relevant to sponsoring compulsive eaters. Pay attention and copy the sentences that tell us the following: why sponsor, who can sponsor, what are the demands from the sponsee, how to sponsor- what to do and what not to do.
Summarize the sponsoring directions in your own words. If you have sponsored in the past or are sponsoring now, are you going to change anything in the way you sponsor? Reflect and share with us.
2. Read step twelve in the AA 12&12 pages 109-111: "Now what about the rest of step twelve...to the entire Twelve Steps for the answers"
Mark the sentences that resonate with you. Pay special attention to the following: helping others, twelve stepping, different ways of helping carry the message (Twelfth Step Work), Pitfalls to avoid. Reflect and share with us.
3. Read step twelve in the OA 12&12 pages 100-103.
Mark the sentences that resonate with you. Pay special attention to the following, benefits of sharing with others, different kinds and aspects of service, pitfalls to avoid. Reflect and share with us.
4. We carry the message not only by sponsoring but also by different kinds of twelve step work and service. How do you personally carry the message or intend to carry the message. Reflect and share with us.
