EDITORIAL MARCH 2017 _

Audio Version 

WELCOME to March’s edition of SHARE. This month we focus our attention on Step Three and Tradition Three and we are lucky enough to have another veritable feast of articles on each of them for us all to enjoy.  Why, I asked myself the other day, do we receive very few Step/Tradition specific articles some months and others we are blessed with many? Who knows, and it is not my position to question why anyway.

Talking of questions, you may remember that last month I asked if you, our loyal reader, had any thoughts as to what the back photo of February might mean to you. Well, I am very pleased to report that we have had several responses in the postbag already, with a wide range of opinions shared. This month we are delighted to print the first two, with more to follow. It’s never too late to send in your thoughts so please put pen to paper, if you feel so inclined.

Now then, why have we got a picture of a ferris wheel on the front of this month? And what’s it got to do with recovery anyway? Well, I must confess that I pinched it out of the pool of readers’ photos (for use in the Calendar, Diary and SHARE) because I liked it. I liked it because it is technically very good (framed well, good colour and exposure) but also because it led me nicely on to choosing the title for this issue: Getting off the wheel.  You see, this is how I felt when I finally chose to hand my will and my life over to (my) God on a daily basis – at long last I had got off the wheel of misery and negativity. I was free.
