In AA (not AAA), they ask you to find a higher power. If you happen to be atheist or a non-committal,they make some assie saying like,"Well, honor the lamp..." I'm not about to get into the life of Bill W. But he was extremely Catholic. I needn't look far for my inspiration. I am no longer a Catholic,nor a Christian, yet unlike 1,000's of people I meet these days who need to proclaim themselves non believers, I believe in Jesus Christ. God--->different feelings.
