    Fifth Tradition Group

    Group History

    Ann F. founded the Fifth Tradition Group in 1994. From the beginning they have met in the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker House at 210 S. Carrizo Street in Corpus Christi.

    Current Meeting Schedule

    The Fifth Tradition Group has meetings at 6:00 PM on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

    On rainy days and in the cooler months they meet in an enclosed porch. The rest of the time meetings are held under a large hackberry tree in the back yard. Medallions are given to members at the first meeting on or after the AA birthday.  A potluck supper is held after the first Saturday meeting each month to celebrate AA birthdays in the previous month.

    Step 3 - Faith

     Step 3:      Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of  God as we understood him.


    I'm a photographer and I think like one. When it comes to running my own life, I have the perspective of someone looking at a photograph taken with a macro close-up lens, focused on a single leaf. Not only can't I see the forest, I can't even see the tree. I'm also limited in time (the moment the photo was taken), so I can't see the tree grow and change through the four seasons. I need guidance from someone whose perspective is not limited in time and space, like mine. Hence, my need to rely on God.

    Life happens in the present, in what my friend the late Eve Smith called 'this red hot moment'. While life has to be lived moving forward, it can only be understood looking back. God's guidance only comes when I'm moving forward. So I have to row the boat trusting that God will guide me. I've learned that not much happens unless I do some rowing (God don't row.)

    I've also learned that if I ask, God will steer. God does not help those who help themselves, as I was told as a child. God helps those who ask and then cooperate with him. He may not always take me to the destination I had in mind, but He will always take me where I need to be. When I look back at some of the tricky places we've come through, I can see that God guided me through it all, doing for me what I could not do for myself. 

    When I'm on the right track, sometimes God's guidance comes with doors opening, as if by magic. I get little signs like a rainbow or a perfect parking space or an amazing coincidence. That tells me to keeping going. When I'm off track, nothing I do works, I feel like I'm swimming upstream. Doors close and lock. That tells me I need to stop and ask for directions. Step 3 is about choosing to live my life this way, with God's guidance. A good Step 3 prayer is to ask God to "Bless it or block it."

    When my friend in Boston was in a stroke rehab, I sometimes went with him to doctor appointments in a wheelchair van. The drivers, some of whom had very little sense of direction, were directed by a GPS system. They punched in our destination. By satellite, the navigation system knew where we were and would tell the driver the next right thing to do. For example, "Bear right onto Storrow Drive - Inbound." When the driver instead went left onto Storrow Drive - Outbound," my first thought was "You idiot. You can't get downtown on the outbound parkway." By contrast, the GPS said "Re-calculating. Exit Storrow Drive at Kenmore . . ." There was no judgment, no punishment, just the next right thing, given where you are now. My higher power's guidance is like that -- no judgment, no punishment, just the next right thing, given where I am now. It's never too late to get on track.

    I had spent most of my life before I got sober trying to manipulate other people into doing my foot work, while I tried to force the result I wanted. In other words, I was turning my job over to other people and trying to do God's job myself. As far as my foot work is concerned, I've learned that if people do it FOR you, they will do it TO you. As far as God's job is concerned, when I get my knickers in a twist, it's usually because I have been entertaining the possibility that this time Rob's will, not God's, will be done. In 28 years, that has not happened yet.

    There was a specific moment in my recovery when I made a decision to put my life and will in God's hands. (It had previously been in the hands of an alcoholic idiot.) This was a commitment I made to God, to myself and to my sponsor. After that, I am out of integrity any time I take it back. Today when I'm huffing and puffing and struggling to get the result I want, I just need someone to remind me, "I thought you made a decision." My reply is always, "I forgot." Any time I want to know whether something was my will or God's will, I just need to ask myself, "Did I make it happen or did I let it happen?" If I made it happen, it was my will. If I let it happen, it was God's will.

    One way this step has been significant in my recovery is that it represents an implicit commitment to do all of the remaining steps. As a recovering alcoholic, I believe it is God's will for me to work the steps, in order, as prescribed in the Big Book and the 12 & 12, with the guidance of a sponsor. (This is not a self-help program. I have needed adult supervision all along the way.) Without doing that work, I would be pretty much useless to myself and to others. Before taking the third step, I resisted the suggestions of the program. I had to be persuaded to go to 90 meetings in 90 days (I was too busy for that.), to get a sponsor (I thought I could figure it out for myself.). After taking the third step, they just had to say "I thought you made a decision."

    Saying the Third Step Prayer every morning is a great way to remind myself of this decision; to recommit on a daily basis:

    "God I offer myself to You, to build with me and to do with me as You will. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do your will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Your Power, Your Love and Your Way of Life. May I do your will always."

    Sometimes I put this in my own words and say, "Let me know what you want me to do today. Give me the desire and the discipline to do that and only that. Remove any obstacles, including my defects, that get in the way."

    One area where I have gone astray with this step involves falling in love. (Benjamin Franklin once said that "Falling in love is a grave mental illness.") I would think, "This is the one, the chance of a lifetime, so I'd better make it happen." One of my friends says, "The opportunity of a lifetime comes around about once every six weeks." Several years ago, I began saying this prayer whenever I find myself obsessing about another person:

    Take my thoughts and feelings for ______ and use them for your purposes. Allow this to unfold according to your plan.

    This has prevented me from obsessing and has made it possible for me to play it out and let it unfold as it was meant to unfold (or, more often, NOT).

    The principle behind Step 3 is FAITH. It is the faith that God will not give me more than I can handle today, with His help and the help of this program. It is trusting that if I seek His will and do my best to carry it out on a daily basis, the future will work out as it's supposed to. It is the certainty that however things unfold, I will be all right. My job is to tend my garden and let God take care of everything else. My biggest challenge is to let other people be just as they are. When I do these simple things, life unfolds before me as if by magic.

    If you do the Third Step properly, your own life is none of your business. That means I can live my life fully and enjoy each moment without worrying about the future.

    Bender Mission Statement

    Our primary purpose is to carry the AA message to the still suffering alcoholic. A secondary purpose of The Bender is to keep the CBIA Area of South Texas informed as to the events, meeting changes, Board of Trustee actions / decisions, and other news of interest to AA’s in the area. Finally, as a newsletter we provide a forum for the broad spectrum of views held by our members. Publication of any article submitted will be at the discretion of the Bender Editor as advised by the CBIA Board. A controversial subject, as long as it does not concern an outside issue and involves principles and not personalities, will be considered for publication. As a general guideline, any letter or article that is of interest to members of AA and in good taste is worthy of publication. However, an article or letter that advocates ignoring or violating the Traditions, Concepts, or General Service Conference actions will not be considered for publication. All decisions will be made under the direction of God as expressed through our group conscience.
