Inspired by ReconcilingWorks’ engagement at the 21st International AIDS Conference in July, this new conversation resource will help your Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community discern how to be a more hospitable space for those living with HIV and AIDS. It is a reflection guide and is provided as an entry point to deepen and expand an RIC community’s commitment to welcome, inclusion, and celebration.
Historically, many faith communities have displayed strongly judgmental attitudes toward LGBTQ people living with HIV. We must instead provide compassion, hospitality, and dignity for all people. This guide will help your community begin discerning steps to take to create an open, compassionate, and hospitable place for those living with HIV and AIDS.
