When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there, and for that I am responsible.

Welcome to the site of AA East Rand .

This site has been put together to not only to help the AA Member with info. , But also to help the  “Newcomer”.

There is an awful lot of information out there , but not all of it is relevant to AA as a whole (so be careful).

Please feel free to send me more information and links .

I will try and put them onto your web page (if they are relevant to AA East Rand). IT IS YOUR WEBSITE .

I hope to keep it as up to date as possible .If you have speakers ,put them on ,all of the pages have a Music track .

CHRISTMAS GREETING FROM BILL

ALL MEMBERS
Greetings On Our 10th Christmas, 1944
Yes, it's in the air! The spirit of Christmas once more warms this poor distraught world. Over the whole globe millions are
looking forward to that one day when strife can be forgotten, When it will be remembered that all human beings, even the least are loved by God, when men will hope for the coming of the Prince of Peace as they never hoped before. But there is another world which is not poor. Neither is it distraught. It is the world of Alcoholics Anonymous, where thousands dwell happily and secure.
Secure because each of us, in his own way, knows a greater power who is love, who is just, and who can be trusted. Nor can men and women of AA ever forget that only through suffering did they find enough humility to enter the portals of that New World. How privileged we are to understand so well the divine paradox that strength rises from weakness, that humiliation goes before resurrection; that pain is not only the price but the very touchstone of spiritual rebirth. Knowing it's full worth and purpose, we can no longer fear adversity, we have found prosperity where there was poverty, peace and joy have sprung out of the very midst of chaos.

A Great indeed, our blessings! And so, Merry Christmas to you all—


from the Trustees, from Bobbie and from Lois and me.
