Welcome everyone and thank you for joining the NRV Online meeting! My name is ____ and I am an alcoholic.

 

This is an open meeting of alcoholics anonymous. We are excited to announce that we are now an official independent AA group, and we are working on finalizing our formal registrations with GSO and the online AA intergroup. We are setting up our roster of Trusted Servants and encourage you to join us at our business meetings for opportunities to be of service to the group.

Please make sure you are muted when you are not sharing so we don't have feedback and background noise. 

Let us open the meeting with a moment of silence for the still suffering alcoholic, followed by the Serenity Prayer which I will recite for us:

 

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and Wisdom to know the difference.

 

 

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
