Here’s What One Winner – Bill Wilson – Said

 

For example, a fellow came to Dr. Bob and said, “I’m an alcoholic; here is my history. But I also have this other ‘complication.’

“Can I join A.A.?

I remember how perfectly Bob put it out to all the other deacons, while the poor guy waited.

Finally,  there was some kind of hearing on it among the self-appointed elders. I remember how perfectly Bob put it to them.

He reminded us that most of us were practicing Christians. Then he asked, “What would the Master have thought? Would He have kept this man away?”

He had them cold!

The man came in, was a prodigious worker, and was one of our most respected people.”
