Jinsi Biblia inavyosema katika zama hizi za UKIMWI

(Swahili edition of Called to Care workbook number 7, Call to Me)

Produced by Upendo Centre, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Translated by Mama Wandoa Mwambu and Canon Alfred Sebahene.

Call to Me is no. 7 in the CALLED TO CARE toolkit, which is designed for use by churches, faith-based organisations, NGOs and community groups, especially in sub-Saharan Africa.

This 76-page handbook consists of 20 Bible studies on topics related to HIV and AIDS, e.g. sex and sexuality; healing; death, grief and mourning; stigma, discrimination and denial; church leadership; marriage; fear and anxiety; and children.  It is written in simple, clear language, and contains 22 drawings by Zimbabwean artist, Mashet Ndhlovu.

The authors of Call to Me are 12 church leaders in four African countries: Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia.  They come from a wide ecumenical background, consisting of Anglican, Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, Pentecostal and Reformed churches. In South Africa, two groups of people living with HIV helped to develop three of the Bible studies.

Call to Me is action-oriented.  It is designed to enable churches and community groups to deal with difficult, sensitive issues related to the AIDS epidemic, and to decide on ways of dealing with these.  Each Bible study consists of seven clearly defined steps, leading to a session in which the participants suggest and discuss ways in which particular issues and problems can be addressed.  The book concludes with an appendix of basic facts about HIV and AIDS, written in simple, non-technical language.
