(#4292) Rev Sam Shoemaker (Pittsburgh, PA)
7/3/1955 in St. Louis, MO  EVENT: AA International 1955  TYPE: Other, Male, Historical

God As We Understand Him

From the Sunday Morning session at the 2nd AA International, Sam followed Fr. Ed Dowling after an introduction by Bill W.

Sam was the Rector of Calvary Episcopal Church in New York where Ebby was staying when he got the idea to bring the Oxford Group message to his old friend and fellow drunk, Bill W.

Our 3rd Step prayer may stem from Sam as well as many of the concepts in the chapter We Agnostics.

A great friend of AA and a founding member of the Oxford Group which he later left.

Here is the 1955 International Program
