World AIDS Day: A Sermon from India
"When the world so far has no cure for HIV & AIDS we are called by Jesus to be a "Believing Generation", a congregation of faith, a healing community and be ceaseless in our prayers. We are not fighting this battle alone. Together with Jesus, we can fight against HIV & AIDS and be assured of victory. He will give us strength to live with HIV, live with AIDS, strength to look life beyond the infection and hope of a life beyond the fear of AIDS." (an extract) – A reflection by S Samraj of Christian AIDS National Alliance, a member of Micah Network.
