RitL General Services News:
◦ An Update to our Steps & Traditions:
A discussion that formally began on our General Services Conference Call
in June of 2015 and continued in two more discussions in October & January 2016 has lead to
some wording changes in our steps and traditions. We have replaced the word "God" with "Higher Power"
and we have replaced the use of "Him/He" to "It or Itself." You can download the revised
Steps & Traditions in our document center.
◦ RitL General Services Conference Call: Got business? We
are creating a steering committee to handle
and help our fellowship evolve. If you any
topics or questions please don't hesitate to send us an e-mail
