"There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are

capable of living." —Nelson Mandela

It is the wind and the rain, O God, the cold and the storm that make this earth of Thine to blossom and bear its fruit. So in our lives it is storm and stress and hurt and suffering that make real men and women bring the world's work to its highest perfection. Let us learn then in these growing years to respect the harder sterner aspects of life together with its joy and laughter, and to weave them all into the great web which hangs holy to the Lord. —W.E.B. Du Bois

Unison Scriptures
7:30 a.m.

Luke 6:6-11 (NRSV)
On another sabbath he entered the synagogue and taught, and there was a man there whose right hand was withered. 7The scribes and the Pharisees watched him to see whether he would cure on the sabbath, so that they might find an accusation against him. 8Even though he knew what they were thinking, he said to the man who had the withered hand, “Come and stand here.” He got up and stood there. 9Then Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the sabbath, to save life or to destroy it?” 10After looking around at all of them, he said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” He did so, and his hand was restored. 11But they were filled with fury and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus.
6

in him. 7He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. 8O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard.

*** 6:00 p.m.

Acts 7:54-60 (NRSV)
When they heard these things, they became enraged and ground their teeth at Stephen. 55But filled with the Holy Spirit, he gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. 56“Look,” he said, “I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!” 57But they covered their ears, and with a loud shout all rushed together against him. 58Then they dragged him out of the city and began to stone him; and the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59While they were stoning Stephen, he prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60Then he knelt down and cried out in a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he died.

*** 11:00 a.m.

Psalm 66:1-8 (KJV)
Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands: Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious. 3Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee. 4All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men. 6 He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice

Intonjane Rites of Passage Litany
Minister: Mentors: Mentors, what is your pleasure concerning these candidates for womanhood? Pastor, Elders, Congregation, and Parents, we give these candidates back to you in the same spirit of love that you gave them to us. We assure you that we have trained them in the ways they should go and affirm that they are ready to assume the responsibilities of womanhood. Elders, what is your pleasure? Pastor, we have tested these candidates and have found them to be fit for the journey of womanhood that lies ahead. We, therefore, affirm their movement from one clearly defined state of existence to the next. Congregation, what is your pleasure? As people of faith who understand the need for Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian women in the village, we affirm these candidates as the new women they have become. Parents, are you ready now, to accept the fact that your daughters have become women, and to give them the respect and responsibilities that come with womanhood? We affirm that our daughter has become a woman and will not hold back anything she has earned in accord with that status. Candidates, hearing these affirmations made in the presence of God, do you now accept the identity and responsibilities of womanhood that have been conferred upon you by your extended family? As I have put aside my childish ways, I accept the wisdom of my elders who have guided me into womanhood, and I pledge to demonstrate with my heart, mind, soul, and body that I am the woman you have recognized. Prayer of Affirmation.

A WORD FROMT THE PASTOR

A Word From The Pastor
“33Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end. 34Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law and obey it with all my heart…” Psalm 119:33-34 (NIV)

In his book, A Sankofa Moment: The History of Trinity United Church of Christ, our Pastor Emeritus, Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., shares the story of a teen-aged member who came to him asking for a choir for the “young” people – young people who expressed a strong desire to sing Gospel music in a congregation that, at the time, was very “Eurocentric” in its worship experience. That teenager was the president of the Youth Fellowship, Brother Vallmer “Val” Jordan, the son of our charter members, the late Vallmer E. and Ethel Jordan. Within months, the Youth Fellowship Choir was formed, and down the years, under the direction of the late Dr. Jeffrey P. Radford, evolved into the Trinity Choral Ensemble and our beloved Sanctuary Choir. In his earlier days at Trinity UCC, Brother Val Jordan was a visionary and an upstanding young adult. Because of his strong desire to sing the music of his people, Africans living in Diaspora, Gospel music was introduced to Trinity UCC.
“In June of 1973 the Youth Fellowship Choir’s name was changed to the Trinity Choral Ensemble and on the Sunday before Christmas in 1977 the Trinity Choral Ensemble was merged with the Chancel Choir of Trinity UCC to become the Sanctuary Choir of our church. The music that you hear, therefore, every Sunday is the direct result of God’s using a teenager to bring “a Joyful Noise unto the Lord” into being. That teenager was Vallmer Wayman Jordan. We thank God for his life and for the awesome impact he had on the texture of our worship experience.” Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., Pastor Emeritus

Brother Val passed away on Tuesday, June 25, at the age of 56. God blessed Trinity UCC with a man who loved the Lord and faithfully served God over the years. We are honored and privileged to have had such an awesome man of God worshiping with us for so many years, and we are forever grateful for his contribution to the music ministry of Trinity UCC. Please remember to keep his wife, Vanessa, and his children, Vallmer, Jacqueline, and Joy, and the entire Jordan family lifted in your prayers. Words of encouragement and condolences can be sent to the family at 11604 S. Campbell, Chicago, IL 60655.

COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM’S IMPACT ON BLACK IMMIGRANTS

TODAY, Sunday, June 30, 2013
2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. • Sanctuary Moderated by Rev. Joan Harrell
“. . .and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 (RSV)
WHERE IS THE JUSTICE? For 200 years, millions of Africans were forced to immigrate in slave ships across the Atlantic Ocean to become slaves in the U.S., the Caribbean, and South America. Today, 150 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, Africans make up only 3% of all immigrants to the U.S. Our African brothers and sisters immigrated to the U.S., to a great extent, as refugees, or through the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program. The “Gang of Eight” removed the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program from the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill (CIRB). We support reinstating the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program to the final immigration reform bill. Our African ancestors endured the most savage form of slavery known to humankind. They built this country through their slave labor, blood, sweat and tears. Our African ancestors left their descendants a legacy to immigrate to the U.S. as effortlessly as any European can. WHERE IS THE JUSTICE? ANNOUNCEMENTS

Forum Panelists Include: • The Honorable Congressman Bobby Rush • Dr. Alie Kabba, Executive Director of United Africa Organization; current president of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights • Nigerian Attorney, Ebere Ekechukwu • The Honorable Judge Lionel Jean-Baptiste, of Haiti and head of the Haitian Congress to Fortify Haiti • Mr. Gaye D. Sleh, head of the Union of Liberian Associations in the Americas For information, Call 773-966-1500, Mailbox 2304 or email Africa@trinitychicago.org

Let Your Hand Become My Help. Psalm 119:173 I found myself without a job; my house in foreclosure and had nowhere or anyone to turn to for help. I read Psalm 139:7-12 and realized there is help nearby, a friend much stronger than you and I – one whose hand can hold us if only we ask. I did. I was led to Synergy Counseling Center where I received the service I needed to help me realize I was not alone. Perhaps you, too, can use their services.

RAISING LEADERS and DEVELOPING DISCIPLES
January • Matthew 16:24 (NLT) Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me." February • Luke 4:18-19 (NIV) The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. March • Luke 10:19 (NIV) I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. April • Romans 10:1-2 (NLT) Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved. I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. May • 1 Corinthians 13:8 (NIV) Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. June • Romans 5:8 (NIV) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. July • Philippians 4:13 (NLT) For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. August • Jeremiah 1-7 (NLT) The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you." September • Isaiah 1:3 (NLT) Even an ox knows its owner, and a donkey recognizes its master’s care—but Israel doesn’t know its master. My people don’t recognize my care for them. October • Isaiah 40:29 (KJV) He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. November • John 17:21 (KJV) That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. December • Matthew 1:23 (KJV) Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
