Female Pastor of Black Church Fighting Against AIDS

Female Pastor of Black Church Fighting Against AIDS

Since last three decades, the Chicago's South Side and surrounded Bray Temple Christian Methodist Episcopal Church in Greater Grand Crossing are under the prevalence of HIV and AIDS. But it's bad to know that it’s only been less than three years that the little church at 73rd Street and Greenwood Avenue took some initiative to fight against this plague.

All thanks to the Rev. Dorothy Williams who besides facing so much of discouragement continued working hard to impede the broadening of HIV in the African-American community. She is a female pastor in the black church and treats herself as a supporter in this human effort.

There were many elders at Bray who tried to create hurdle in her mission, but she keeping aside all the nervousness and dissuasion, moved further to help the victims. Now several HIV testing sessions take place at the church and all those who are found positive are given the treatment.

The only problem that the worshippers are facing is the confusion that whether they should distribute condoms to prevent this illness or not. Williams speaks about self-discipline but then she can’t force others to be like her. There are many people, even of her age, who are widowed members, but still are engaged in having sex.

As said by her, “A lot of churches are still not open to that ministry. It's in your face and very personal. It tends to probe into your business. Some of these things people want to keep personal at the cost of hindering people around
(them)".

Besides knowing that William’s duty is to teach people moderation and self-denial, she is engaged in protecting the people, because she can’t tolerate people dragging themselves into danger. She wants to spread awareness about this disease and wants to save the lives of those who are lurching with the disease in the community.
