World AIDS Day

I don't have much time to blog today, but I couldn't neglect to mention the greatest opportunity we have to love the hurting, care for the broken, and heal the sick on World AIDS Day. Tony Sheng has some good stuff about it here. Christ's mission statement, unabridged, is found in Isaiah 61. Here's an excerpt:

"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. "He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."
