Monthly Focus November: 11th Step, 11th Tradition

A lot of groups use the number of the month to focus on the corresponding number of a Step or Tradition. November is the 11th month of the year so here is some information on the 11th Step, Tradition, Promise, and Reward.

11th Step

Step Eleven doesn’t have to overwhelm me. Conscious contact with God can be as simple, and as profound, as conscious contact with another human being. I can smile. I can listen. I can forgive. Every encounter with another is an opportunity for prayer, for acknowledging God’s presence within me. Today I can bring myself a little closer to my Higher Power. The more I choose to seek the beauty of God’s work in other people, the more certain of His presence I will become.
