2nd Tradition

I just saw the Second Tradition as stated by CGAA for the first time, and I have some major issues with it. Here is the Second Tradition in CGAA: For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority—our group conscience as guided by power greater than ourselves. Our leaders are but trusted serv...

Tradition 1

On the other hand, when considering the 2nd tradition, specifically about "trusted servants", I think that having hate speech showing up as literature in the 1:30pm meeting may not be an issue.  Morgan is currently leading the meeting, and I trust that he will not do such a thing.   However, I would...

Tradition 1

I think this is really great.  It really touches upon the practical side of this tradition.   I attended the 1:30pm meeting on 7/29/18, and this reading was read.  I am afraid of the precedence this sets of people using literature at a meeting without having that literature approved by group conscie...

Style Guide for Literature Submission

I agree wholeheartedly.  I included the link to the Elements of Style just as an example of what it might look like, but too many rules can certainly stifle creativity.  It can also be a work in progress, it can start with one or two guidelines, and grow if needed.

Style Guide for Literature Submission

I think it would be helpful if the Literature Committee would agree on a <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Style_guide" target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="noreferrer">Style Guide</a> for literature submissions.  Many newspapers have their own style guides.  One of the more famous style guide...

Step 7: Partial section for Basic Text or 12 & 12

I would like to see the use of the second person in the first sentence changed to the first person plural, like in the rest of the piece.  I believe that the use of the word "we" is inclusive, while using "you" can sound exclusive.  What I am proposing, specifically, is for the first sentence to be ...
