Chipping a new beginning



A while back I recommended Max Lindenman's blog, Diary of a Wimpy CatholicA link to the same can always be found on my sidebar.

Not at all in the wimpy category, Lindenman's writing is always worth the read.  Yesterday he put up a truly remarkable post, one with which I believe most of us will identify in a variety of ways. Max begins:
My Higher Power must be pleased. I just returned from my first AA meeting in possession of a “24-hour chip” — an object that looks like an outsized arcade token, stamped with Reinhold Niebuhr’s Serenity Prayer. I’m told that if it melts in my mouth, then I can have a drink.
You'll want to read the rest here.
