From This Matter of Fear

From “This Matter of Fear:”

    “We of AA now find ourselves in a
world characterized by destructive fears
as never before in history.  But in it we
nevertheless see great areas of faith and
tremendous aspirations toward justice
and brotherhood.  Yet no prophet can
presume to say whether the world outcome
will be blazing destruction or the beginning,
under God’s intention, of the brightest era
yet known to mankind…we AAs can say that
we do not fear the world outcome, whichever
course it may take.  This is because we have
been enabled to deeply feel and say, ‘We
shall fear no evil — Thy will, not ours,
be done.'”
— Bill W., January 1962
