“Who Will Break The Silence”
DOWNLOAD: E-Book produced by The Balm In Gilead, Inc.
The resources in this book are presented in three sections:
Section A consists of original pieces including prayers, confessions, litanies, a lament, a praise chorus and congregational hymns. The wide variety of resources can be used for worship services, prayer meetings, weekly study, Christian education workshops HIV/AIDS support groups, individual spiritual support, and the National Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS. We trust that they will enrich your worship and stimulate courage and creativity to develop other worship resources which bring the needs of persons affected by HIV/AIDS into the center of our faith communities.
Section B consists of two complete worship services. These incorporate the resources from Section A into a coherent whole. The first service focuses on the theme, “Prerequisites for Prayer.” The second service focuses on our theme, “Who Will Break the Silence?” Both are designed to be used either during the regular Sunday worship service or during a special service planned for the National Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS.
Each service is presented first in outline form with specific instructions and suggestions for worship planners and leaders. Then the full service is printed for worship bulletin purposes. The texts and new music are included following the full service.
Section C consists of fact sheets about HIV and AIDS and information on other resources available to help churches plan for the National Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS. We also encourage you to visit the campaign website at www.NationalWeekofPrayerfortheHealingofAIDS.org or www.NWPHA.org.
