The Arbor - December 2013

The December issue of the Arbor focuses on the twelfth step—maintaining sobriety by helping others. One contributor testifies that "serving our fellow men and our Savior, is transformative, protective, life-changing and life-saving."

This issue also includes important information on changes to phone-in meetings:
Meetingplace is being retired; Webex will replace it.
There is a new call in number: 1-855-537-4000.
Each meeting has a new Meeting Code, listed after the meeting location on page 4 of the Arbor.
(Meeting ID#’s are now called Meeting Codes.)

When you input your meeting code do not include any spaces.  (The space in the number is to make it easier to read.)

See the Arbor for a complete list of face-to-face and phone-in meetings.
