Alka's Angle December 3, 2021

Dear Broadway Family,


Two days ago President Biden marked the beginning of AIDS Awareness month by sharing a new national HIV/AIDS strategy with the goal of ending the HIV epidemic by 2030, in the United States. Hoping this response will be truly equitable, he committed to making sure that resources for HIV prevention, diagnosis and treatment “will be available to everyone regardless of race, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability.”


While we have come a long way, HIV continues to be a health concern around the world! Thousands of people are diagnosed with HIV every year in the United States, and almost 20% of them didn’t know they have HIV. Our Mission team has chosen to support the Global AIDS Fund, created in 2004 by the United Methodist Church, to combat HIV/AIDS, globally, through prevention, education and support.


While the researchers continue to find and develop a treatment for HIV, we can certainly do our part in helping to end this epidemic. Here are some ways:



Speaking of epidemics, you may have heard that OMICRON, the latest strain of coronavirus, is designated as a ‘variant of concern’ by WHO. As more research is done to determine ways to manage that strain, we at Broadway will make a few adjustments to our in-person events/worship.


  • During worship ONLY one or two people from choir will sing with Robert, while wearing shields.
  • We will continue to require masks inside the building.
  • No food or drink, besides your own water/coffee will be allowed inside the building.

Let us continue to do all we can to keep one another safe -- whether by keeping our masks on or making a phone call to our public servants to ensure all people have safe housing. God is always beside us to encourage and empower us when we stand for the rights of people. And remember, I am always with you in this work of justice. I look forward to seeing you in worship this Sunday!
