CORRECTION: The Church World Service News Story "Ecumenical Worship Service
Marks World AIDS Day," dated November 30, 2001, has a typographical error -
unfortunately, in the phone number for AIDS pin orders.  The number should
be 1-800-297-1516 (not 1517).  We sincerely regret the error and hope we are
notifying you in time to correct any reference you may have made.  The
corrected story is available at

NOTE TO READERS/EDITORS:  We hope you've noticed that today we distributed
several related news stories that, in turn, relate to earlier stories and
statements by the NCC, its General Secretary and its General Assembly.  All
are also on the NCC's Web site,

Today's dispatches included:
* "NCC General Secretary Joins Muslim Iftar, Interfaith Dialogue" - at
* "NCC Friendship Press Offers Book on Islam - at
* "Message to Muslims in the United States at the End of Ramadan" - NCC
General Secretary Statement, at

The latter makes reference to a December 12, 2001, "Joint NCC/CWS Statement
on the U.S. Domestic Response to Terrorism."  We expect to issue that
statement within the next few days.

Related earlier stories/statements include:
* "Out of the Ashes and Tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001" - NCC General Assembly
Statement, at
* "For the Faithful Living of These Days" - NCC General Assembly Statement,
