But I wish they would not forget how it was Before they got in. Then they would be able to help The people who have not even found the door, Or the people who want to run away again from God. You can go in too deeply, and stay in too long, And forget the people outside the door. As for me, I shall take my old accustomed place, Near enough to God to hear Him, and know He is there, But not so far from men as not to hear them, And remember they are there too. Where? Outside the door— Thousands of them, millions of them. But—more important for me— One of them, two of them, ten of them, Whose hands I am intended to put on the latch, So I shall stay by the door and wait For those who seek it. 'I had rather be a door-keeper. ' So I stay near the door.". Other Books Written By Dick B.– Books 22 Thru 26. As God use us to spread the gospel together. The poem contains many reminders of the A.A. I found– newcomers crying out for help in finding God. Hesitant, frightened, even reluctant newcomers—coming in and out by the thousands each year. Newcomers who seek a guiding hand—only to hear that "god" can be a light bulb, a radiator, a chair, or "Someone." Newcomers who can't find Shoemaker's "door" because there is no one leading or pointing to the right power—Yahweh, the Creator.

As a result of the work, sacrifice, and dedication provided by usher boards and nurses guilds, one day of every year is set aside for the church and its members to express their appreciation for the work and commitment given by these individuals. Often, ushers and nurses guild members from other churches will attend the festivities in support and celebration, and all programming is centered around showing appreciation to the usher board and all of its departments. We appreciate all who serve as nurses guild members and as ushers and are thankful as they assist in maintaining order and decorum and extending hospitality in the house of God.

I neither go too far in, nor stay too far out, The door is the most important door in the world— It is the door through which people walk when they find God. There's no use my going way inside, and staying there, When so many are still outside, and they, as much as I, Crave to know where the door is. And all that so many ever find Is only the wall where a door ought to be. They creep along the wall like those who are blind. With outstretched, groping hands, Feeling for a door, knowing there must be a door, Yet they never find it. So I stand by the door. (5) "We stood at the turning point. We asked His protection and care with complete abandon." ("Alcoholics Anonymous," 4th ed., p. 59; and many of Shoemaker's titles, including his first—"Realizing Religion").

It was their task to open the temple gates in the morning and to close them again at night. They stood ready to receive the tithes and gifts that the Israelites brought. They stood watch over the storerooms and treasuries to make sure that nothing was stolen. They stood on guard to make sure that no unclean person would enter God's house.
