This book would not be possible without our great preceptor, Alcoholics Anonymous.My dictionary simply defines the word as "a teacher or instructor." Obviously, though, the word is derived from "precept" which gives a deeper understanding of the role of a preceptor. Merriam-Webster says a precept is:
- : a command or principle intended especially as a general rule of action
- : an order issued by legally constituted authority to a subordinate official
I'm not in charge. My only job is to turn my life and my will over to the care of God as I understand him and to seek only to know His will for my life and to have the power to carry that out.
May the Twelve Steps be my preceptor today, this day, the only day I have.
