Things We Found to be True When we become alcoholics, crushed by self-imposed crisis we could not postpone or evade, we had to fearlessly face the proposition that either God is everything or else. He is nothing. God either is, or He isn't. What was our choice to be? Without knowing it, had we not been brought to where we stood by a certain kind of faith? For did we not believe in our own reasoning? Did we not have confidence in our own ability to think? What was that but a sort of faith? Yes we had been faithful..Fai(hful to the God of reason. We found, too, that we had been worshippers. Had we not seriously worshipped people, sentiment, things, money and ourselves? Who of us had not loved something or somebody? Were not these things the tissue out of which our lives were constructed? Did not these feelings, after all, determine the courage of our existence? They said God made these things possible, and we only smiled. We had seen spiritual release, but liked to tell ourselves it wasn't true. For faith is a power greater than ourselves, and miraculous demonstrations of that power in human lives are facts as old as man himself. If our testimony helps sweep away prejudice, enables you to think honestly, encourages you to search diligently within yourself, then if you wish you can join us on the broad highway. With this altitude you cannot fail. The consciousness of. your belief is sure to come to you. We finally saw that faith in some kind of God was a part of our- make up. Just as much as the feeling we have for a friend. Sometimes we had to search fearlessly, but He was there. He was as much a fact as we were. We found that great reality deep down within us, in the last analysis it is only there that He may be found. It was so with us. If interested write Box 873, Blytheville, Ark.
