Editorial for July 2017

Audio Version

HELLO AND WELCOME to July, dear readers. If you're on holiday in hotter climes, then you should never be far from the Fellowship because naturally you will have packed your copy of SHARE in your luggage (if not, why not?), or you will be able to get to local meetings, should you so wish.

Well, as you know, this month we are focusing on Step and Tradition Seven. And what a feast of cracking articles we have for you too.  In fact, it's pretty much even Stevens with four articles on each. Great stuff it is, too, with some thought-provoking articles and different slants from everyone. Also this month we have said a (hopefully temporary) adieu to 'The Promises and Me' but we have a brand-new feature for you called 'Reflecting Back', along with an archived contribution from Virginia, USA. This shows us that the message and the Programme is the same across the world and stands the course of time as well.

Now then, a call to action from you, dear reader. What would YOU like to see in YOUR SHARE magazine in the future?  Remember, this is a magazine written and produced for members by members. It follows, therefore, that we all have a stake in its direction and content. So, as always, please do write in to share your Experience, Strength and Hope but also do drop us a line if you have any 'light bulb' ideas for new features. Finally, 'Shepherd's Delight' - what's that all about, then, I hear you ask? Well, after choosing the cover photo, the old saying "Red sky at night - shepherd's delight; red sky in the morning - shepherd's warning" sprang to mind. It occurred to me then that my Higher Power, my shepherd, would have been delighted when I finally asked Him to remove my shortcomings. It was a long time coming.
