In the hectic days before being installed as leader of a major urban church, many pastors would be crafting sermons, neatly pressing suits and robes, or ironing out last-minute details. The Rev. Raphael Gamaliel Warnock, due to be installed Sunday as pastor of Douglas Memorial Community Church in West Baltimore, has been doing what he does best: tackling tough issues. At Warnock's insistence, the 700-member church plans to open a weekend of installation events with discussion of what he sees as one of the churches' albatrosses: HIV and AIDS.

The Rev. Brad R. Braxton calls it an assignment, but really his five-year stint in West Baltimore was a choice. A choice to lead an inner-city church, to jump-start programs for the hungry, to help guide a congregation needing direction - despite a Rhodes scholarship and academic credentials that could have taken him anywhere in the world. Now, after fulfilling what he calls a "covenant" to ignite the spirit at historic Douglas Memorial Community Church on West Madison Avenue, he's leaving to take a teaching position at Wake Forest University in North Carolina.
