    I cover 4 paragraphs in this episode. Read at almost every meeting. Powerful spiritual words. What do these paragraphs tell me? What must I do? What is the warning if I don’t follow these directions? I also take a brief look at the parable of the prodigal son and how it relates to my alcoholism and the solution.
