  • Reviewing the GSB’s suggested changes, it was the unanimous consensus of the committee that:
    • the repeated references to Higher Power water down the meaning of the text in unintended ways;
    • the list is UA’s equivalent of the AA Promises;
    • the following affirmations be worded thus:
      • 6) We choose actions and commitments that serve our needs and contribute to our prosperity, in accordance with our Higher Power’s will for us.
      • 8) We embrace working with others whenever having co-workers, associates or employees serves.
