Pastor tested for HIV in church pulpit

Rev. Anthony Lee, pastor at the Community of Hope church in Washington D.C.,  is tackling the subject of HIV/AIDS and taking a stand in the pulpit that many pastors might choose to shy away from. In an effort to promote HIV testing, Lee gets tested in front of his congregation four times out of the year.  The Huffington Post reports:

At Union Seminary in 1998, the Rev. Anthony Lee helped lead a worship service on World AIDS Day. Tony (as he was called back then) described the pressures of violence and poverty, along with AIDS, in his African-American community in Washington, D.C., and called for a holistic medical, social and spiritual cure.

Today, Lee is back in the D.C. area as the founding pastor of a thriving church called Community of Hope, located in Prince George’s County. He is again working in a largely African-American community that suffers from rates of HIV/AIDS similar to some countries in Africa.
