Editorial November 2018

On behalf of the Roundabout Subcommittee, all of our subscribers and readers I would like to thank our outgoing Editor, for the great job he has done over the past four years, providing us with our monthly meeting in print. His commitment to Roundabout is a great example and he assures us it has enhanced his own personal sobriety. That's what service does. It starts when we come to AA and join a group, welcoming visitors, emptying ashtrays, (back in the day), making tea, putting out seats and helping with the multitude of tasks that allow us to keep our meeting going. If you are anything like me, this is all done with an attitude that's less than charitable, though with my AA face you would never have known. Recovery and fellowship have helped to mellow my attitude and give me understanding that it's a privilege that our Fellowship trusts me to do service. Without having service as a part of our sobriety we may stay sober but we will not experience the freedom from the bondage of self. It's just a simple truth.
