SINCE JESUS CAME INTO
MY HEART
Verse I
What a wonderful change in my life
Has been wrought, Since Jesus came into my heart!
I have light in my soul for which long I have sought,
Since Jesus came into my heart!
Chorus
Since Jesus came into my heart,
Since Jesus came into my heart,
Floods of joy o’er my soul
Like the sea billows roll,
Since Jesus came into my heart.
Verse II
I have ceased from my wand’ring
And going astray, since Jesus came into my heart!
And my sins, which were many, are all washed away,
Since Jesus came into my heart!
(Repeat chorus)
Verse III
I shall go there to dwell in that city,
I know, Since Jesus came into my heart!
And I’m happy, so happy, as onward I go,
Since Jesus came into my heart!

NO, NOT ONE
Verse I
There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus
No, not one! No, not one!
None else could heal all our soul’s diseases
No, not one! No, not one!
Chorus
Jesus knows all about our struggles,
He will guide till the day is done;
There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus
No, not one! No, not one!

No, not one! No, not one!
And yet no friend is so meek and lowly
No, not one! No, not one!

No night so dark but His love can cheer us
No, not one! No, not one!

Was e’er a gift like the Savior given?
No, not one! No, not one!
Will he refuse us a home in heaven?
No, not one! No, not one!

them.”
13
He gave them permission, and the evil
spirits came out and went into the pigs. The
herd, about two thousand in number, rushed
down the steep bank into the lake and were
drowned.
14
Those tending the pigs ran off and
reported this in the town and countryside, and
the people went out to see what had happened.
15
When they came to Jesus, they saw the man
who had been possessed by the legion of
demons, sitting there, dressed and in his right
mind; and they were afraid.
16
Those who had
seen it told the people what had happened to
the demon-possessed man—and told about
the pigs as well.
17
Then the people began to
plead with Jesus to leave their region.
18
As Jesus
was getting into the boat, the man who had
been demon-possessed
begged to go with him.
19
Jesus did not let him,
but said, “Go home to
your family and tell them
how much the Lord has
done for you, and how he
has had mercy on you.”
20
So the man went away
and began to tell in the
Decapolis how much
Jesus had done for him.
And all the people were
amazed.

MARk 5:1–20 (NIV)
1
They went across the lake to the region of the
Gerasenes.
2
When Jesus got out of the boat, a
man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to
meet him.
3
This man lived in the tombs, and no
one could bind him any more, not even with a
chain.
4
For he had often been chained hand and
foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the
irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to
subdue him.
5
Night and day among the tombs
and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself
with stones.
6
When he saw Jesus from a distance,
he ran and fell on his knees in front of him.
7
He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do
you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High
God? Swear to God that
you won’t torture me!”
8
For Jesus had said to him,
“Come out of this man,
you evil spirit!”
9
Then
Jesus asked him, “What is
your name?” “My name is
Legion,” he replied, “for
we are many.”
10
And he
begged Jesus again and
again not to send them
out of the area.
11
A large
herd of pigs was feeding
on the nearby hillside.
12
The demons begged
Jesus, “Send us among the
pigs; allow us to go into

A
lmighty and Most Merciful Father,
we come before You, acknowledging
our sins, our shortcomings, and our
breaking of our Covenant with You.
Not only have we done things we ought not to
have done, said things we ought not to have said,
left undone so many things we ought to have done
and been silent when we should have witnessed for
You.
Not only are we guilty of that, O Lord; but we
have also closed our eyes and pretended not to
see the injustices, the racism and the evil which
pervade our everyday lives.
We have shut our ears and pretended not to
hear the cries for liberation which come from the
lips, lives and hearts of the oppressed — even our
own Black brothers and sisters!
Forgive us, O Lord, renew our courage and
faith, and keep us ever mindful of Thy great
sacrifce. Hear us, we beseech Thee, as we come
to You in love and worship giving Your name the
praise forevermore.
===========
TO ALL OUR VISITORS … To all who
mourn and need comforting … To all who are
friendless and want friendship … To all who are
oppressed and need liberation; and to whosoever
will come, Trinity opens its doors. Thank you for
coming and may God bless you.

Dear Trinitarian:
The United Church of Christ joins the
Alliance for Responsible Trade (ART) and the
Quest for Peace of the Quixote Center in invit-
ing you to share a lively and crucial venture—
the shaping of a new and just U.S. trade policy.
Trade Promotion Authority, better known
as “Fast Track,” expires on June 30. FAST
TRACK transfers the authority to make trade
policy from Congress to the President, eroding
democratic participation and essential checks on
Executive privilege.
Essentially, that means the Bush administration
unilaterally negotiates free trade agreements
in private meetings, and then submits them to
Congress for a yes or no vote, with no amend-
ments allowed.
Before June 30, Congress must decide
weather to renew this sweeping authority. It is
important that the Congress use this moment to
recapture their control of trade policy.
Our denomination has launched a “JUST SAY
NO!” to Fast Track NYT Signature Ad Cam-
paign to propel the critical moment at hand.
Visit www.notofasttrack.org/go/adtext to see
the New York Times advertisement and sign on.
Your name will appear in a full-page signa-
ture ad in the New York Times shortly after the
Bush administration presents its new Fast Track
request to Congress, which we anticipate will
happen in June.
Why Oppose Fast Track?
NAFTA’s 12-year track record documents
the tragic results of FAST TRACKING the
corporate-led “free trade” agenda:
Over 3 million U.S. jobs lost while •
corporate profts soar. Manufacturers are
moving to Mexico and Central America
to offer low wage jobs under highly
exploitative conditions.
Environmental devastation in the United •
States and abroad.
Privileges extended to agri-business are •
destroying family farms in the United States
and have driven over 2 million Mexican
corn farmers off their lands as a result of the
infow of subsidized U.S. corn.
People forced to migrate as “free trade” •
policies deprive them of livelihoods.
Basic human rights of people living in •
poverty are undermined as access to basic
services such as water, healthcare and educa-
tion are privatized.
Patent extensions on life-saving medicines •
impede access to generic medicines and
threaten public health.
When President Bush asks for a renewal of
Fast Track, we need to make sure that Congress
“JUST SAYS NO!” Visit www.notofasttrack.

paign now!
SAY “NO’ TO FAST TRACK!

WITNESS FOR JUSTICE #318
Solving the Environmental Puzzle
April 30, 2007 • Pat Conover, Acting Team Leader
pAsTOr’s pAGe
I
n response to the 1992 Environmental
Summit, George Bush Senior commented on
the use of natural resources: in response to
the 1992 Environmental Summit: “The American
Way is non-negotiable.” Let’s treat this quote as a
puzzle and ask, “How many things are wrong with
this one quote?” The loser gets a trip to the strip
mined Moonscape in Eastern Tennessee.
The easiest error is the sheer arrogance toward
the rest of the world and the disregard for serious
discussion by world leaders. But that lets us off too
easy. Presidential arrogance is as much a symptom
as a cause of underlying issues.
Bush Senior did not really mean the American
way. He meant the United States way. Lots
of other leaders in the Americas have radically
different points of view. Such insensitivity goes
back at least to the Monroe doctrine, enforced by
lots of nasty little wars and nasty intrigues by the
CIA. We are currently living with the real troubles
caused by the “real politics” of U.S. interests in
Colombia and elsewhere. But the issues are much
bigger than our lusts for such things as Colombian
oil. It is an error to suggest that the United
States is not negotiating about environmental
issues. The U.S. is negotiating all the time.
All our trade agreements have environmental
clauses and there have been running battles over
whether such clauses should be strong or weak.
Environmentalists have been losing those battles,
but there are signs that this may be changing.
Disregard for the environment is not the “way”
of the United States, if by “way” we mean the
behavior of the people of the United States. From
the buying of hybrid cars, to the growing success
of recycling programs, to the reduction of littering
going back to Lady Bird Johnson, there is lots of
evidence that people are willing to change their
behaviors to improve the environment.
Instead of looking for errors, where should we
look for the truth? Suppose we looked in prayer
to the Creator. What should we be doing with
our gift of life in this marvelous creation? When
we think we have the freedom to do anything we
want, we forget we are but creatures. We forget we
have a place in creation because of the designs that
have made our world and our lives possible. When
we start from thankfulness, start from caring, start
from the lures to meaning and grace and deep joy,
we head towards an openness to responsibility, to
justice, and to sharing.
In the peaceable kingdom, in shalom, we have
the image of harmony in which a lion lies down
with a lamb. A former Texas senator kept a poster in
his offce that said in effect, “When a lion lies down
with a lamb, the United States should be the lion.”
Mocking scripture may be cute, but it still points
the way to strife and death. When the leaders lack
vision, the people will perish. When the people have
vision, they can choose better leaders.
The United Church of Christ has more than 5,700
churches throughout the United States. Rooted in the
Christian traditions of congregational governance and
covenantal relationships, each UCC setting speaks only
for itself and not on behalf of every UCC congregation.
UCC members and churches are free to differ on impor-
tant social issues, even as the UCC remains principally
committed to unity in the midst of our diversity.

TO dO jUsTiCe
T
he documentary, “Pills, Profts, &
Protest,” shows how the fght against
HIV/AIDS is being fought around the
world. From South Africa, to Brazil, to India,
people are rising up, and demanding that this
pandemic be brought under control. Moreover,
the documentary shows how people power
is forcing governments and pharmaceutical
companies to work together to provide affordable
medicines for those living with HIV/AIDS.
Pharmaceutical companies spend over $50 bil-
lion a year on research and development and pass
the cost along to the poorest people. The greed of
pharmaceutical companies has even impelled them
to fle lawsuits against other countries that wanted
to import generic antiretroviral drugs, in order to
service those people who cannot afford to pur-
chase brand name pharmaceuticals.
Since 1996, anyone living in Brazil with HIV/
AIDS has had access to free, generic antiretroviral
drugs. In South Africa, pharmaceutical companies
sued community groups, claiming their efforts to
secure generic antiretroviral drugs were illegal.
After the people of South Africa stood up, the
pharmaceutical companies dropped the lawsuit.
More importantly, as a result of the people’s ac-
tions, antiretroviral drugs were made affordable in
that country.
It is a shame that elected offcials in the United
States have not placed a priority on ensuring that
affordable antiretroviral drugs are made avail-
able to the poor and underserved of this country.
Instead, priority has been placed on killing people.
Moreover, the greed of government has made
money a priority rather than people. This greed
is seen in policies that have been instituted by the
United States, making it illegal to import generic
antiretroviral drugs made in other countries, which
would ensure that poor people would have the op-
portunity to access affordable antiretroviral drugs
to lengthen their lives.
Why can’t the same thing be done in these
United States? Forty million people have died from
AIDS. More are dying daily, and many more suffer
from devastating complications. If money can be
found overnight to kill and maim people in Iraq
and Afghanistan, while our own soldiers are dying,
why can’t money be found to help lengthen life in
America and beyond?
The people in Brazil and South Africa stood up
to the government and pharmaceutical companies,
and demanded that they prioritize people lives.
We can do the same. I urge you to sign the letter
today, which will be sent to our representatives in
Congress. The next step will be to send letters to
the pharmaceutical companies, demanding they
make these drugs affordable.

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE
The Needed Talents
S
am, there’s a reason why you don’t see me around church,”
began Albert Shy, “I just don’t have the talents for church
work.”
“That’s debatable,” replied Sam. “Running a church requires
so many different talents, that I’m sure there’s a place for you.”
“I can’t preach!” continued Albert. “No need to! We have a
preacher,” said Sam. “But, how are you on listening? We could
use a whole church-full of listeners!”
“I can’t sing or play music either, and I know your church is
real musical,” pleaded Albert. “Not important! We’re already
blessed with gifted singers and musicians,” Sam explained.
“Seems to me, that teaching is like fshing, you’ve got to know
more than the fsh. I’ve tried to read the Bible, but I simply
don’t understand it,” complained Albert. “Albert, I have been
studying the Bible all my life, and I’m still discovering new
truths,” countered Sam. “Perhaps you could teach.” “I’m sur-
prised that you haven’t told me that I should help the janitor or
wash dishes,” said Albert, “You know, menial tasks.” “Nothing
wrong with menial tasks!” smiled Sam. “That’s how I started in
the church, but remember how St. Paul said to work - as though
you were working for Christ?”
“I’d feel humiliated,” confessed Albert. “If you would only
start,” counseled Sam, “You would be surprised at how much
work would come your way. You would feel needed, wanted,
and fulflled. Never again, would you doubt your ability for
church work.”

LAW DAY
LAW DAY was created as a way to celebrate the signifcance of
law and the legal profession. Today, in recognition of Law Day, we
acknowledge Trinitarians who are members of the legal profession,
for the contributions they have made to both the principles and
practice of law and justice. We recognize our legal giants who have
made tremendous contributions to the legal profession and to our
community. On this Law Day, our legal professionals re-dedicate
themselves to serve society, particularly the poor and disadvantaged
sections of our society, to ensure equal justice to all.
