Our guest today is our long-time friend, and conference recorder and taper, Rusty W., from Peoria, Arizona. Rusty has long owned and managed Smile God Loves You tapes, and its active and informative Web site. He has attended and recorded a number of our own conferences--particularly those in California. And Rusty has long made available our 12-Step materials at conferences which he has recorded. As Rusty has traveled the country recording various 12-Step conferences over the years, he has occasionally encountered the mythical idea held by some 12-Steppers that one can offer for sale some 12-Step-related materials at conferences, but not others! Perhaps this attempt by some to restrict the reading and listening of those who need to know is on its way out. Because many of our fellowships are learning the respected Traditions about listening to a loving God as He may express Himself--and doing it first; about the lack of governors or censors in our A.A. structure and membership, and about the importance of taking desired objectives to an informed group conscience before trying to control meetings. Fortunately, Rusty is respectful of the importance to recovery of A.A. history; is respectful of the roles actually played by God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible in the origins and founding and content of 12 Step meetings; and is mindful of the need of our fellowship to hear and know all of the great A.A. story--including what we like to call today "the rest of the story." And we look forward to hearing more from him today about the activities of his wife and himself, their faith work, and the events he attends and records. They have a large and faithful following. And now--take it away, Rusty.
