Born of necessity

With the pandemic of 2020, most C.A. meetings moved online overnight. Some of us saw an opportunity for growth within our fellowship by remaining online, even after the crisis has passed.

Members attend online meetings due to illness, location, family commitments, etc. We have welcomed newcomers who are taking the steps with a sponsor, all online. We see online meetings working alongside face-to-face meetings and encourage our members to attend them too.

As it says in our basic text, we saw a need, we created the fellowship we craved and thus we grow!

There is a Solution

All sections of this country and many of its occupations are represented, as well as many political, economic, social, and religious backgrounds. We are people who normally would not mix. But there exists among us a fellowship, a friendliness, and an understanding which is indescribably wonderful. We are like the passengers of a great liner the moment after rescue from shipwreck when camaraderie, joyousness and democracy pervade the vessel from steerage to Captain’s table. Unlike the feelings of the ship’s passengers, however, our joy in escape from disaster does not subside as we go our individual ways. The feeling of having shared in a common peril is one element in the powerful cement which binds us. But that in itself would never have held us together as we are now joined.
