Today's guest is Bryce H. from the Fort Worth, Texas, area. He and his wife are strong Christian recovery leaders in that area and are planning a major, unique, nationwide Alcoholics Anonymous history conference there very soon.
First, though, Bryce will tell us a little about his upbringing, educational and religious background, family, marriage, present work, and something of his bouts with addiction. He will also prepare you with some details about his wife--who will be interviewed in just a few days.
Second, when last we talked, Bryce was gung ho about a major nationwide A.A. history conference he and his wife are planning for this summer or early fall in the Fort Worth area. And this will be our first opportunity to talk to A.A. friends, Christian leaders and workers, newcomers, churches, and the public about our history and its Christian origins.
Third, we look for an audience from all over Fort Worth and Texas; from nearby New Mexico, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and other locations where A.A. history and enthusiasm are hot.
Fourth, the Ft. Worth conference will bring in speakers who know their stuff, probably from Florida and Hawaii; will have music and food; and will feature three much-needed workshops: (1) Sponsorship. (2) Newcomer focus. (3) Applying Old-School A.A. principles and practices in 12 Step programs today.
Bryce will tell us as much as he wishes about all these subjects. And now we are ready for his talk. Take it away, Bryce
