STEP 4        “Made a  S E A R C H I N G and  FEARLESS moral inventory of ourselves”

This step seems intimidating ….  But with the help of a SPONSOR and the BLUEPRINT for PROGRESS…..It is just another growth opportunity….AND the keys to the kingdom!

TRADITION 4   “Each Group should be autonomous, except in matters affecting another Group or Al=-Anon or AA as a whole”

This speaks about how we all can have our own opinions but still work together as a whole.

CONCEPT 4   “Participation is the key to harmony”

What a wonderful concept! We are “trusted servants” we do not govern.  We encourage all opinions to be heard, for everyone to participate. Our service positions rotate!
