My Faith Looks Up to thee
Verse i My faith looks up to Thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary, Savior divine! Now hear me while I pray, Take all my guilt away, O let me from this day be wholly Thine! Verse ii May Thy rich grace impart Strength to my fainting heart, My zeal inspire; As Thou hast died for me, O may my love to Thee Pure, warm and changeless be, A living fire! Verse iii While life’s dark maze I tread, And griefs around me spread, Be Thou my guide; Bid darkness turn today, Wipe sorrow’s tears away, Nor let me ever stray from Thee aside. Verse iV When ends life’s transient dream, When death’s cold, sullen stream shall o’er me roll; Blest Savior, then, in love, Fear and distrust remove; O bear me safe above, A ransomed soul!

i aM on the BattLeFieLd
Chorus I am on the battlefield for my Lord, I’m on the battlefield for my Lord; And I promised Him that I would serve Him till I die. I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. Verse i I was alone and idle, I was a sinner too, I heard a voice from heaven, Say there is work to do, I took the Master’s hand, And I joined the Christian band, I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. (Repeat Chorus) Verse ii I left my friends and kindred Bound for the Promised Land, The grace of God upon me, The Bible in my hand, In distant lands I trod, Crying sinner come to God, I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. (Repeat Chorus) Verse iii Now when I met my Savior, I met Him with a smile, He healed my wounded spirit, And owned me as His child, Around the throne of grace, He appoints my soul a place, I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. (Repeat Chorus)

GaLatians 6:1–10 (nRsV)
My friends, if anyone is detected in a transgression, you who have received the Spirit should restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness. Take care that you yourselves are not tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if those who are nothing think they are something, they deceive themselves. 4All must test their own work; then that work, rather than their neighbor’s work, will become a cause for pride. 5For all must carry their own loads. 6Those who are taught the word must share in all good things with their teacher. 7Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for you reap whatever you sow. 8If you sow to your own flesh, you will reap corruption from the flesh; but if you sow to the Spirit, you will reap eternal life from the Spirit. 9So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up. 10 So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith.

jUdGes 11:1–11 (nRsV)
Now Jephthah the Gileadite, the son of a prostitute, was a mighty warrior. Gilead was the father of Jephthah. Gilead’s wife also bore him sons; and when his wife’s sons grew up, they drove Jephthah away, saying to him, “You
1

shall not inherit anything in our father’s house; for you are the son of another woman.” 3Then Jephthah fled from his brothers and lived in the land of Tob. Outlaws collected around Jephthah and went raiding with him. 4After a time the Ammonites made war against Israel. 5And when the Ammonites made war against Israel, the elders of Gilead went to bring Jephthah from the land of Tob. 6They said to Jephthah, “Come and be our commander, so that we may fight with the Ammonites.” 7But Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead, “Are you not the very ones who rejected me and drove me out of my father’s house? So why do you come to me now when you are in trouble?” 8The elders of Gilead said to Jephthah, “Nevertheless, we have now turned back to you, so that you may go with us and fight with the Ammonites, and become head over us, over all the inhabitants of Gilead.” 9Jephthah said to the elders of Gilead, “If you bring me home again to fight with the Ammonites, and the Lord gives them over to me, I will be your head.” 10And the elders of Gilead said to Jephthah, “The Lord will be witness between us; we will surely do as you say.” 11So Jephthah went with the elders of Gilead, and the people made him head and commander over them; and Jephthah spoke all his words before the Lord at Mizpah.

Dr. Waldo Johnson elected National Co-Chair Council on Contemporary Families
chair of CCF’s 10th Anniversary Conference to be held at the University of Chicago on May 4 and May 5, 007. Waldo is associate professor at the University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration (SSA) and director of the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture (CSRPC), an interdisciplinary university-wide research program dedicated to promoting engaged scholarship and debate around the topics of race and ethnicity. The Center is especially interested in how these ideas and their structural manifestations impact and shape people’s daily lives. Researchers affiliated with the Center recognize the significance of the black/white paradigm in the United States; however, they are committed to expanding the study of race beyond the black/white paradigm. Broadly, the forty-three faculty affiliates in addition to postdoctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students are engaged in the study of race and processes of racialization in comparative and transnational frameworks. Thus, the work of faculty affiliates ranges

he board of directors of the Council on Contemporary Families (CCF) recently elected our member, Dr. Waldo E. Johnson, Jr., as its national co-chair. Dr. Johnson will serve a three-year term as national co-chair, and he joins Steven Mintz, professor of history, at the University of Houston, who is completing a three-year stint as CCF national co-chair. Founded in 1996, CCF is a non-profit, non-partisan organization of family researchers and practitioners that seek to further a national understanding of how America’s families are changing and what is known about the strengths and weaknesses of different family forms and various family interventions. The Council helps keep journalists informed of notable work on family-related issues via the CCF Network. Dr. Johnson has served on the CCF board of directors since 000, chaired the 003 CCF Annual Conference and serves as coSunday, January 28, 2007

from an examination of processes of racialization among dominant groups to the study of racialized minorities within the United States and black/white indigenous populations in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Asian Pacific and Europe. Central to the Center’s mission is the acknowledgement that race and ethnicity intersect with other primary identities such as gender, class, sexuality and nationality, necessitating the exploration of social and identity cleavages within racialized communities. Dr. Johnson is also national convener of the Twenty-First Century Foundation Black Men Black Boy Initiative. He serves on the Senior Advisory Committee for the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago African American Male Initiative and the Chicago Community Trust African American Male Initiative, and he is the chair of the African American and African Diaspora Research and Practice Presentation Track for the 007 Annual Program Meeting of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) scheduled for November in San Francisco. A graduate of Mercer University in Macon, GA, Waldo earned a B.A. degree in English and sociology, an M.S.W. degree in community development and administration from the School of Social Work at the University of Michigan and a Ph.D. in social policy from the School of Social Service Administration of the University of Chicago. He was a Ford Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at the Poverty Research and Training

Program and the Program for Research on Black Americans at the Institute for Social Research, both at the University of Michigan. Waldo serves on the board of directors for the Society for Social Work Research and the Institute for the Advancement of Social Work Research. Dr. Johnson has also been a visiting research scholar at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa; University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; the University of Wisconsin, Madison; Cornell University; and the London School of Economics. Waldo Johnson is a proud member of the Men’s Chorus and the Scholarship and Education Ministry Partners of Trinity United Church of Christ. He has served as a trainer for the HIV/AIDS Ministry and is a member of the Long Range Planning Education Committee. His first book, What Have We Seen With Our Own Eyes: Social Work and Social Welfare Responses to African American Males, will be published by Oxford University Press in early 008! Thank God for dedicated brothers like Waldo Johnson. Be sure to show him some love today!

f the proposed county budget is passed, Cook County will need to be renamed Chaos County. Currently, this department helps convicted women who suffer from mental illness to remain in their children’s lives. Through treatment and classes, these women are allowed to report to jail every day to pay their debt to society and gain treatment for their illness. The proposed budget eliminates this program. Our member, Vernita Mitchell, is currently employed by the Cook County Sheriff’s Office in their Office of Youth Service Development. The vision statement of the department is: “The youth in Cook County are safe, drug-free, healthy and knowledgeable.” With the proposed budget, this will be eliminated. Other casualties of the proposed budget cuts include eliminating Pediatric and OB/GYN services at Provident Hospital, and closing many free clinics in many of the neighborhoods where working poor people live. These are people who go to work every day, and pay taxes, yet their government can not seem to find the means to take care of them. Let us be clear — the issue is finding a way to get quality services to all the people of Cook County, not just the ones who can afford services. That being said, I urge you to demand that your state and federally elected officials find a way to ensure that this budget is balanced for

all, and not on the backs of the poor. I entreat you to contact your County Commissioner, and urge them to find another way to balance the budget without decreasing services to the poor and indigent, especially in the way of health care. I also encourage you to contact your State Senator and State Representative and insist that they pressure the Governor to release the 65% of funds from the Federal Government. Attend the Cook County Budget Hearings to let your voice be heard! Below you will find the names of the County Commissioners. You may find out your County Commissioner by going to www.co.cook.il.us/ commisioners.htm or by calling, 31-603-6398.

ThOughT fOr ThIS wEEk:
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others? — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

hen I’m doing housework, one chore at a time isn’t enough. Instead, I try to accomplish as many things as possible. So there are times when I have laundry going in the dryer and the washer, dishes washing in the dishwasher, and dinner baking in the oven — all while I’m vacuuming the rug. It often seems as if everyone is multitasking these days. In fact, many people even bring laptop computers to do work while they’re vacationing. When everyone is so busy, sometimes stewardship of time and also talent (which requires time) can get “lost in the shuffle.” We should remember, however, that stewardship doesn’t prevent us from accomplishing other things. When we’re mowing someone’s lawn or raking leaves for a shut-in, we are exercising, even though we haven’t been to the gym lately. When we help wash dishes during a church dinner or make sandwiches for the homeless, we have the opportunity to visit with people we might not see otherwise; and socializing helps us feel better when things are rough elsewhere. God knows about these benefits. Perhaps part of the reason God commands us to be good stewards of time is to help ourselves, not just others. Your Friends in Service, The Stewardship Ministry Constance A. King, Editor James D. Butler, Chairman

A God of
January

My heartfelt hope for the congregation in the year 2007 is that each member will fully embrace what it means to be loved by a God who restores. God is a God of redemption and not a God of condemnation.

Isaiah 40:1-2 Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. 2Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.

Restoration
Isaiah 40 (NIV)

July

Isaiah 40:26 Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.

February

Isaiah 40:4–5 4 “Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. 5And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

August

Isaiah 40:27 Why do you say, O Jacob, and complain, O Israel, “My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God”?

September

March April May June

Isaiah 40:11 He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young. Isaiah 40:18 To whom, then, will you compare God? What image will you compare him to? Isaiah 40:21 Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded? Isaiah 40:25 “To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.

Isaiah 40:28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

October

Isaiah 40:29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

November December

Isaiah 40:30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; Isaiah 40:31 But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
