News About OA Literature

The SVIOA Intergroup has recently decided to stop selling literature at Intergroup meetings,and will sell off existing OA literature inventory.

SVIOA has $8,000 of literature to sell ASAP.

We have plenty of books, pamphlets, and coins on-hand, but that supply will not be replenished after it is sold off.

Once we liquidate our inventory, the position of Intergroup Literature Chair will cease to exist.

At that point, individual groups will be able to purchase the literature needed the OA bookstore and www.aa.org.

Please come to upcoming Intergroup meetings in December, January, and February to purchase/stock up on literature for yourself and for your meetings.
We will possibly still have inventory to sell at the OA Birthday party in January.

 

Our sincere thanks to all the Trusted Servants who have served in Literature in the past years.  We know that it truly has been a labor of love.

Calling for Acceptance

I had a slip yesterday. I left a message on my sponsor’s answering machine telling her what I ate and that I ate out of self-pity. Then I turned on the TV and ate some more. I called my sponsor again, she answered, and I told her what I ate. She listened and said, “Just keep being honest ab ..
