A New Book in the Making


Thanks to our collective efforts, a book that explores a spiritual principle each day of the year is taking shape. As you may recall, the 2018 World Service Conference initiated this work by approving a project plan for work over two Conference cycles. Since then, we’ve been busily engaged in creating a book that’s truly by addicts, for addicts.

With direction and oversight from the World Board, the Spiritual Principle A Day work group has…
  • processed writing from members from around the world 
  • developed 227 entries by weaving together members’ writing 
  • distributed f batches of “Review & Input”
We anticipate publishing an approval draft for the book in the 2022 Conference Agenda Report.

Materials for Review and Input Batch #4, due by 31 January 2021
