I know that it is service to hold an office in AA.  It is service to be the treasurer, coffee maker, secretary, GSR, chair person, leader, Grapevine rep.  It is service to open the door, buy the snack, arrange the chairs, lead the discussion, procure the speaker, move the tables, pay the rent, pay the central office, decorate, arrange parties, obtain and provide meeting lists, wash cups and dishes (and, in the olden days, ash trays).  It is service to offer your phone number, answer the phone, man the AA office phones, write to people, buy books and set them out, provide money for all the things AA needs.  It is service to clean the office and organize the picnic, cook the phone, get the drinks, wash the coffee spills and welcome people as they come through the door.

Is it service just to show up?
