World Aids Day

Some of our members are requesting that we put up information on World Aids Day.  That day was December 1, 2009, a bit before I got this blog started, but here is some info. from the Everglades Moon Local Council I can pass on:

"Greetings Witchkin,
Several RHPC (Red Hills Pagan Council) members and I (Spiraling Heart Coven, EMLC) participated in the World AIDS Day interfaith service at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tallahassee on Tuesday. There were participants from about 15 different faith groups, including Gentle Shepherd MCC, Temple Israel, a member of our local Buddhist community, an Imam from the local Muslim community, St. Stephens Lutheran, United Church of Tallahassee, United Methodist Church, UU, All Saints Catholic Community, St. John's Episcopal, and others I can't recall right now.

Each faith group had a different section of the service which was ours to do with what we wanted, in our own tradition. One of the guys who participated with me made this video based upon our portion of the service and posted it on YouTube. I thought some of you might like to see it. "

Also, here is the official World Aids Day website, and articles from the Huffington Post and The Current on this important subject.
