Describe about exploration: health disparity project?
I am currently working as a pastor in one of the Catholic Churches in west London. In the month of November 2015, a colleague of mine, who is presently working in a Black Church in America, invited me to work on the health disparity project. I, though, resided in London was always aware of the conditions of the fact that the Black Churches are the only institutions that provide spiritual and social support to the African-American living in the country but they also play a very important role in providing the health care related support to the people as well. I am well aware of all these facts and knew that, for imparting knowledge related to health issues, the Black Church has always gone for the informal way of teaching and making people aware of the whole thing. As I received the offer from one of my colleagues, I was under the great dilemma because I did not know whether or not I should answer his invitation, since at that time I was engaged to too much in reading of the Bible. I know that health discrimination is one of the major issues that trouble the lives of both the African American and the European-American; therefore I had to ask myself the question of being a pastor, the question that would answer to the purpose of my being a pastor. Being a pastor, my aim should not be fixed towards studying the Bible only, I should also play an important role for the welfare of the society and therefore I had to give importance to this invitation as well. So, I paid my visit and worked for the health disparity project for the African-American.
