A Service of Wholeness for World AIDS Day

Since World AIDS Day occurs during the first week of Advent in the Christian year, it is appropriate (particularly in the sermon or prayers of the people) to make connections to the biblical and theological themes of the liturgical season. Advent is a time of waiting in hope and faith for the coming of Christ’s realm — a new creation in which God’s promises of justice, wholeness, and reconciliation are fulfilled. In this season of longing and anticipation, we give thanks for the light of life in Christ, which can never be extinguished (John 1:5).
