We have Three Legacies in A.A and they are: Recovery, Service and Unity. Recovery is the blessing we receive by working the Program. Service comes in many forms, and affords all of us, a diverse opportunity to express our gratitude for our sobriety. Unity is the knowledge that we are all part of a whole, we are family. Service positions are not difficult, and do not require great knowledge or experience – there are always others who can help guide us to complete the duties assigned to the positions. It is an opportunity to lend a hand to the Fellowship that gave us the recovery we so enjoy. Some positions require more than others, but there is always a need for others to step up and be of service to the Program, the Program that has saved our lives, in many cases. While many positions require lengths of sobriety, there are some which do not require extended recovery lengths. Service can be as simple as pouring coffee, cleaning the Fellowship hall, etc. A.A. cannot function without the efforts of us all.
