SERVICE: NATIONAL WEEK OF PRAYER FOR THE HEALING OF AIDS
Thursday, March 8 at 7pm – Simpson UMC, 1701 East 12th Street, Austin, TX 78702
Simpson UMC of Austin invites you to this nationally celebrated service. The focus of this year’s festivities is developing partnerships between the Faith and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Communities. The service will include messages of encouragement: rising above HIV; inclusiveness; and the love of Jesus Christ. Pastor Charles Stephens will bring a word of encouragement following the keynote address from Conscious, a dynamic HIV-positive woman who has risen above difficult circumstances and now shares her journey through acting, presentations, and her book, “Getting Unstuck”. Other events happening the same week include a Pastor’s HIV Testing Day (a public event in which local pastors lead by example), prayer vigils, and more. Conscious is a lesbian artist, actor, writer and former bodyguard to celebrities, she has served as Music Manager for the Queen Latifah Show and hosted Oxygen Media’s talk show She-Commerce. Conscious now travels the country delivering a poignant message about HIV, AIDS, and recovery. A native of Harlem, NY, Conscious now resides in Los Angeles, CA and Miami, FL.
