May 15, 2007 – Congress has pledged $50 billion in
the budget for children’s health coverage through the
State Children Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)
reauthorization. SCHIP must be reauthorized by
September 30, 2007. SCHIP was a great bipartisan
achievement, and now is the time to strengthen it with
a strong reauthorization bill.
A Republican Congress and a Democratic President
enacted the SCHIP program in 1997. Both Republi-
can and Democratic governors aggressively moved to
utilize the SCHIP funding and fexibility to expand
coverage for children. Congress must help states fnish
the job.
An SCHIP reauthorization bill should strengthen
the program, particularly by enabling states to cover
the millions of children eligible but not enrolled in
SCHIP and Medicaid. The congressional pledge of
$50 billion for children’s health care needs to focus on
improving Medicaid and SCHIP.
Timely SCHIP reauthorization will help ensure
coverage for children, as well as adequate and stable
resources for states. The following elements are key to
the reauthorization process:
a. Dollars dedicated for children’s coverage can be
most effciently and most productively invested
in the SCHIP and Medicaid programs.
b. Dollars from Medicaid and SCHIP should not
be diverted in order to fnance the new monies
promised to SCHIP.
c. States need incentives and the fexibility to
increase outreach and enrollment opportunities.
d. States should have the option to choose whether
or not to implement the mandatory Citizens
Documentation Requirement Defcit Reduction
Act. States are now required to get two forms
of documentation in order to enroll potentially
eligible families for SCHIP and Medicaid,
thereby using already limited dollars for costly
administrative tasks.
e. Federal funding which assisted legal immigrant
children in obtaining Medicaid and SCHIP
services should be restored. Prior to welfare
reform, legal immigrant children were eligible to
enroll in Medicaid and SCHIP.
f. The growing gap between federal funding now
available and what states need simply to maintain
their current caseloads must be addressed in the
reauthorization.
Congress must make health care for America’s
children a top legislative priority. If you care about
our children, you are asked on this Women’s Day to
contact your members of Congress and urge them to
support SCHIP reauthorization legislation that offers
comprehensive, affordable, high quality health cover-
age for all children, with the necessary funds to do so.
To send a fax or e-mail message to your
representative on the SCHIP reauthorization, visit

To My Dear Trinitarian Family and Friends:
God, who reaches into everyone’s heart, knows how
thankful, grateful, and excited I now am to be a fully
engaged member of Trinity United Church of Christ. In
light of that, I would also like to take this opportunity to
congratulate and thank all Trinitarians who made TUCC
what it is today. Your welcoming spirit, since my frst visit
through the day I received the Right Hand of Fellowship,
was honorable and inspiring. THANK YOU ALL FOR
THE WARM WELCOME!
I am deeply grateful to our Senior Pastor Rev. Dr. Jer-
emiah A. Wright, Jr., Pastor Rev. Otis Moss III, and the
host of TUCC leadership, who by God’s help, devoted
their time in spiritual teaching (emphasizing both the Bib-
lical and/or social context of our African traditions and
culture). Acknowledging that we live in a moment where
the church and the community are required to deliver
changes to its people, I see TUCC as one of the leading
Christian congregations demonstrating that principle, as it
engages in the “living out” of God’s plan.
Throughout my journey, which began 19 years ago in
Southern Sudan, Africa, I have observed and experienced
many churches (and/or believers) worship and praise
God; but, very often I failed to understand how they
demonstrate God’s Love and work in their actual practices
after Sunday worship.
One of the biggest obstacles in every aspect of life, be it
economically, socially, educationally, and/or spiritually, is
always the absence of knowledge and freedom to exercise
whatever God has given us and expect us to wisely use
those gifts to the capacity we can and to the beneft of all.
But very often, unfortunately, we as human beings
end up in poverty, war, and man-made disasters, as some
of our own brethren fail to recognize God, or fail to
demonstrate God’s love. Instead, they misuse their power,
brandishing it over the powerless, the voiceless, and the
minority to fulfll their own earthly goals. I am convinced
that attending church, prayer, praising Him, and sharing
the Bible, are all very important. But, these practices
cannot fulfll God’s promises or desires if we remain silent
and do nothing for those who are in need.
As I grow, I have come to learn that we MUST always
look for knowledge, unity, and courage in order to rise as
a people and stand up for ourselves and our future genera-
tions. Our desire should be similar to our beloved leaders,
Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Dr. Martin Luther King,
Jr., Dr. John Garang de Mabior of Sudan and the like,
each of whom lived by example and served so that we
might have a better life.
I thank Almighty God for bringing me to a congrega-
tion prepared for and transformed by, not only its prayers
to and worship of God, but also its commitment to and
demonstration of God’s love through tireless work within
the church and within our collective global community.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, from the bottom of
my heart, I believe that God does not want us to be silent
while our sisters and brothers living in the Diaspora are
experiencing injustice, oppression, and discrimination,
let a lone the genocide, slavery, and mass displacement
which are now still active in the motherland and elsewhere
around the world. God wants us to love one another, care
for the sick, shelter and/or feed the homeless and seek to
fnd ways to provide for those who have less.
Finally, I cannot end this message without recognizing
two of our own sisters. I would like to extend my appre-
ciation to Sis. Lynda Holiday Lawrence, who directed me
to Trinity United Church of Christ and to Ms. Dorothy
Riley, another Trinitarian, who frst told me about TUCC.
Above all, I thank God for bringing these two wonderful
people into my life and establishing a friendship that has
changed my life.
With prayer, unity, understanding, love, hard work,
faith, and commitment, I wish you all a delightful return
of fun, fellowship, learning, success, and growth!
Sincerely,
Peter Magai Bul

TO dO JUsTiCe
E
very year, since 2000, the United States
has set aside billions of dollars for the
Columbian government. Most of this
money is geared toward military aid. This military
aid has not served to aid the crisis in Columbia, but
only served to deepen the distress of the millions
of people, including Afro-Columbians, who have
been displaced from their homes in Columbia due
to violence.
WHINSEC/School of the Americas is a combat
training school for Latin American Soldiers, located
at Fort Benning, GA. Some have called this school
the school of the assassins. WHINSEC/SOA, in
no uncertain terms, trains Latin American soldiers
in counterinsurgency, sniper training, commando
and psychological warfare, military intelligence, and
interrogation tactics. Graduates of this school return
to their own countries and use these debilitating
techniques on their own people. SOA graduates
return to their countries and target educators,
freedom fghters, religious workers, and other who
work for the rights of the poor. In countries like
Columbia, many of those targeted by these gradu-
ates of the SOA have been tortured, assassinated,
raped, and forced into displeasure by those trained
at the SOA.
The policy of the United States with regard
to Columbia has been one of feigning aid, while
promoting destabilization. Through its fnancial
support, and military support through schools
like WHINSEC/SOA, Columbia and other Latin
American countries have been the victims of a sick
and oppressive policy toward Columbia and Latin
America. The violence that has torn Columbia apart
disproportionately affects the rural poor, many of
whom are Afro-Columbians. The time has come to
change America’s policy toward Columbia.
Today and tomorrow, May 20th and 21st,
thousands of faith communities across the United
States are participating in days of prayer and action
for Columbia, as they heed the call of Columbian
religious leaders for help in ending the 40-year civil
war that has torn the country apart. As you entered
the Sanctuary, you should have received a letter
addressed to Congressman Eliot Engel, Western
Hemisphere Subcommittee Chairman of the House
Committee on Foreign Affairs. By signing this let-
ter, you can join other faith communities in de-
manding that the United States government alter its
policy toward Columbia, and call for an end to the
violence in that country funded by U.S. dollars.

THe ReSULTS OF A ReDeeMeD LIFe
stewarsdship Quotes
“If you want to live longer, give the other driver the right of way.”
“There will always be roses, but someone has to take care of them.”
“People who spend their time fnding fault usually have little else to do.”
“A church member who feels no responsibility for his Church, does not really belong.”
ACHIeVeMenT. “My mother drew a distinction between achievement and
success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and
worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others
and that’s nice too, but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achieve-
ment and forget about success.” (Helen Hayes) That’s a good defnition of a
sense of stewardship toward our God-given time and talent.
CHILDRen AnD MOneY. Too often we fail to understand that Christian
instruction about money is one of the best opportunities we have, to teach our
children about God’s love for us, and His ownership of all things. The way
we use money is the extension of our personal characteristics. By teaching our
children the Christian use of money, affording them control of money and the
need to make decisions about money, we also confront them with the meaning
of discipleship and Christian stewardship.
GROWInG CHRISTIAnS. The Christian who trusts in Jesus Christ is grow-
ing daily, thinks in terms of Christ’s love and his blessings, receiving more than
they have ever been given or deserved, and the privilege of responding. Chris-
tians know that the grace of Christ enables an individual to look at his or her life
and rearrange priorities, making sacrifces here and there, so that increased giving
of money becomes possible out of seemingly unchanging fnancial sources.

SChiZophreniA
Schizophrenia is a serious brain disorder.
Approximately 2.2 million Americans have this brain
illness. It is a disease that makes it diffcult for a
person to tell the difference between real and unreal
experiences, to think logically or to have normal
emotional responses and behave normally in social
situations. Schizophrenia is not a split personality. It is
not caused by bad upbringing, personal weakness or
laziness.
Some symptoms of schizophrenia include:
False beliefs or thoughts with no basis in reality •
Hearing, seeing or feeling things that are not there •
Hearing voices that comment on one’s •
behavior or give commands to act out
Schizophrenia improves with treatment. For more
information, contact the Alliance for the Mentally Ill,
NAMI of Greater Chicago, 312-563-0445.

Isaiah 40:1-2 Comfort, comfort my people, says
your God.
2
Speak 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.
¬.·...,
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.
5
And the glory of the LORD will be
revealed, and all mankind together will see it.
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
...
Isaiah 40:11 He tends his ock 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 40:26 Li 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.
