How should the church and its leaders deal with the origin and meaning of HIV/AIDS, and with the stigma it engenders? How should they address the needs of those affected, and minister to the infected?

This resource book is designed for all who have to handle situations created by this relatively new epidemic - church leaders/workers, Sunday school teachers, youth leaders, the laity.

The five sections give sermon guidelines and worship outlines for services ranging from weddings to funerals; such key moments of the church's year as Christmas and Easter; attitudes of compassion or discrimination; congregations peopled by youth or grandparents; and social realities like poverty and gender inequality.
