Nashville-area church hosts World Vision Experience: AIDS
The Otter Creek Church of Christ in Brentwood, Tenn., is hosting “World Vision Experience: AIDS.”
The World Vision Web site notes:
The World Vision Experience: AIDS is a 2,500-square-foot interactive exhibit that invites visitors to “step into Africa” by hearing, seeing and walking through an African village to personally experience the lives of children affected by AIDS. The stirring audio tour and captivating photography will transport you into the life of an African child and give you a new perspective on the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time … AIDS.
Randy Lowry, president of Lipscomb University in Nashville, touted the exhibit in a note to the campus community:
“One of the milestone health issues in our students’ generation has been the world HIV-AIDS epidemic. We have all seen the effect of misinformation and misunderstanding about its impact, especially on children in Africa. One of our local congregations — Otter Creek — is sponsoring a touring national exhibit created by World Vision from August 8-15, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., to shed light on this humanitarian crisis and our opportunities as Christians to impact it.
“Traditionally for understandable reasons, we are not able to publicize local congregational events among the Lipscomb community, but this one, like our work on the flood clean up, has tremendous community implication, both here in Middle Tennessee and as Christians in a global citizenry.”

I hope more churches will bring this exhibit to their area. The World Vision people are amazing.
