Notes
Sermon by the Bishop of London, the Rt. Rev. Richard Chartres, at the 10th anniversary service, held at the Guards Chapel, Westminster, to celebrate the life of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. "At a time when people are suspicious of rhetoric, the monarchy communicates by symbol and simple speech and the Princess brought her own gifts to this work. She was still only 26 when she shook the hand of a patient at the opening of the Middlesex Hospital's AIDS ward, the first in the UK. It is hard now to credit the degree of fear and prejudice which surrounded AIDS in the eighties. Those familiar with the field have no doubt that the Princess played a significant part in overcoming a harmful and even cruel taboo is a gesture which was not choreographed but sprang from a deep identification with those who were vulnerable and on the margin". "Her work in the very last year of her life for the victims of landmines also caught the popular imagination internationally and certainly accelerated the adoption of the Ottawa Convention, banning the use of weapon which disproportionately kills and maims women and children. She proved the eloquence of embrace and touch which of course have been used by royal healers through the centuries. And as she said 'the biggest disease today is not leprosy or TB but the feeling of being unwanted'." "Let this service mark the point at which we let her rest in peace and dwell on her memory with thanksgiving and compassion while we pray in the words of St. Paul for all those who serve our country as members of the Royal Family and most especially for the sons who were so precious to her".

Notes
"Elizabeth C. Payne, Project Coordinator".
"80-0101".
"This title replaces 'Youth Ministry in the Age of AIDS' first published by the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the USA in 1989". -- p. [iii].
Includes bibliographical references.
"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.
