The   word brotherly love is the word Philadelphia. It is the church in the book of Revelation that the Lord Jesus approved and did not rebuke.The great Christian leader, Watchman Nee published a teachng on the "Orthodoxy of the Church" in which he described the Church of Philadelphia as the Church era that saw the rise of the Pllymouth Brethren and other independent church bodies that were self governing and without a ruling ministeral class. The Oxford Group arose out of this movement and described themselves as a First Century Christian Fellowhisp and had not established clergy. AA took this idea and set up a felllowship that control AA through a set of traditions which are upheld by various levels of service boards which do not govern. Today we talk about his idea of a chruch led only by the Holy Spirit.
