"AIDS is not asking anything new of us; rather, it is confronting us with the necessity of becoming more fully the kind of people we have been called to be. One might ask, 'Why should the church respond ?' Despite all the so-called openness about sexuality, young people receive little help in understanding themselves as sexual beings in a Christian context. What they have most often had from the church is pronouncements about what they should not do, with little emphasis on a positive response to God's goodness. We hope that this program will give you a place to begin a healthy conversation about sexuality and faith. The first version of 'Youth Ministry in the Age of AIDS' was written in 1988 and reviewed by a number of groups in the church for accuracy and appropriateness. Since that time, much has changed. Facts about AIDS are taught in most schools and are widely available on the Internet and from many community agencies. The original work, aimed primarily at high school youth, is now intended for both junior and senior high-age children." -- Intro.
