Practice in Open Mindedness

Last Updated on January 30, 2019 by Area 53 Web Team

Area 53 is exciting an fellowship with perspectives from all over Ohio and an opportunity in learning the values of AA as a whole.

For me the growth of open-mindedness was learned in deeper degrees especially in the exciting conference committee meetings on Friday evening and Saturday. At first, I had a definite opinion and then another member had a different point of view and still another member had comments on something not considered. I was challenged to make an effort to keep my mind open.

With that effort, I experience an awareness that others peoples’ informed viewpoints had great value. My outlook was adjusted to be more on principles and what is best for A A as a whole.

When I can carry the experience of the mini-conference (keep an open mind) in my personal affairs, my life becomes much more manageable.

It is not too late to register! It is not too late to have a voice that is delivered to the General Service Conference in New York with our Delegate, Kristi H. You can register online – just visit our Area 53 Mini-Conference webpage. If you have any questions or comments, I would be happy to talk to you. See you at beautiful Deer Creek on March 11th – 13th.

Frank G., Area 53 Mini-Conference Chair
