One Body

 - theological reflection and dialogue tools 

One body is a cooperation between Christian Councils in Southern Africa and the in the Nordic European countries.

Together we have produced two sets of publications with theological reflections; the first one is on HIV and AIDS, and the stigma related to the desease, and the second is on Human Dignity, and related to Gender, Youth and Abuse. Both sets comes with a guide to the facilitators, where one can learn how to use dialogue as an effective tool in the churches.   

One Body - to overcome stigma and discrimination

One of the most powerful blocks to the prevention of HIV transmission, and to effective treatment, is the stigmatization and discrimination that is encountered by people living with HIV and AIDS, their families and their survivors. Recommended reading on aids related stigma.

In volume 1 you will find a collection of reflections. Volume 2 consists of resources for prayer, liturgy, worship and bible-studies combined with personal testimonies from people living with HIV. It is a help for groups and congregations to overcome stigma and discrimination by addressing issues of Images of God, our concepts of the Church and the whole issue of human sexuality.

One Body - Human dignity inherent in every human being

In this publication, the theme of human dignity is explored in relation to gender, youth and abuses. This has been done with an understanding that there are still many gaps in the churches’ response to HIV.

Through personal stories from many of the participating countries, through selected bible-studies, and through questions to be considered and debated, we hope that this material will be helpful in the further steps needed to be taken towards a strengthened sense of human dignity and gender equality.
