Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the United Methodist Global AIDS Committee!
“The beauty of the Christmas story is that God’s love was incarnated in Jesus, the Christ. The same message was communicated to the privileged and the poor, the lofty and the lowly. Likewise today we need to reach out with that same spirit of inclusive love to those who need comfort, care, health, and hope.” ( Dr. Donald Messer, former UMGAC Chair)
“May Christ’s love surround you and be a constant reminder of your beloved-ness as we work together to create an AIDS-Free world.”
