ACTS 2:1–13 (ThE MEssagE)
1
When the Feast of Pentecost came, they were
all together in one place.
2
Without warning
there was a sound like a strong wind, gale force
— no one could tell where it came from. It
flled the whole building.
3
Then, like a wildfre,
the Holy Spirit spread through their ranks,
4
and
they started speaking in a number of different
languages as the Spirit prompted them.
5
There
were many Jews staying in Jerusalem just then,
devout pilgrims from all over the world.
6
When
they heard the sound, they came on the run.
Then when they heard, one after another, their
own mother tongues being spoken, they were
thunderstruck.
7
They couldn’t for the life of
them fgure out what was going on, and kept
saying, “Aren’t these all Galileans?
8
How come
we’re hearing them talk in our various mother
tongues?
9
Parthians, Medes, and Elamites;
Visitors from Mesopotamia, Judea, and
Cappadocia,
10
Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt
and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene;
11
both Jews and proselytes; Even Cretans and
Arabs! “They’re speaking our languages,
describing God’s mighty works!”
12
Their heads
were spinning; they couldn’t make head or tail
of any of it. They talked back and forth,
confused: “What’s going on here?”
13
Others
joked, “They’re drunk on cheap wine.”

PSALM 73:1–17 (ThE MEssagE)
1
No doubt about it! God is good - good to
good people, good to the good-hearted.
2
But I
nearly missed it, missed seeing his goodness.
3
I was looking the other way, looking up to the
people
4
At the top, envying the wicked who have
it made,
5
Who have nothing to worry about, not
a care in the whole wide world.
6
Pretentious
with arrogance, they wear the latest fashions in
violence,
7
Pampered and overfed, decked out in
silk bows of silliness.
8
They jeer, using words to
kill; they bully their way with words.
9
They’re
full of hot air, loudmouths disturbing the peace.
10
People actually listen to them - can you believe
it? Like thirsty puppies, they lap up their words.
11
What’s going on here? Is God out to lunch?
Nobody’s tending the store.
12
The wicked get by
with everything; they have it made, piling up
riches
13
I’ve been stupid to play by the rules;
what has it gotten me?
14
A long run of bad luck,
that’s what — a slap in the face every time I walk
out the door.
15
If I’d have given in and talked
like this, I would have betrayed your dear
children.
16
Still, when I tried to fgure it out, all
I got was a splitting headache…
17
Until I
entered the sanctuary of God. Then I saw the
whole picture.

For AFriCAn-AmeriCAnS,
Folly oF ThiS WAr hiTS home
By DerriCk Z. JACkSon, Globe ColumniST
pAsTOr’s pAGe
May 9, 2007 – MILITARY SOCIOLOGIST
David R. Segal, was asked Monday, over the
telephone, what he hears in his surveys of sol-
diers. He quoted an African-American veteran
of the Iraq invasion and occupation: “This is not
a black people’s war. This is not a poor people’s
war. This is an oilman’s war.”
Gregory Black, a
retired Navy diver who
last year started the
Web site BlackMilitary-
World.com, said that
quote sums up what he,
too, hears from African-
American veterans of
the Iraq war.
“African-Americans
detest this war,” Black
said yesterday in a
phone interview. “Ev-
erybody kind of knows
the truth behind this
war. It’s a cash cow for
the military defense
industry, when you
look at the money these contractors are mak-
ing. African-Americans saw this at the beginning
of the war and now the rest of the country has
fgured it out. It’s not benefting us in the least.”
Asked about the reference to an “oilman’s war,”
Black said, “It’s basically about oil, basically about
money. It’s an economic war.” He said veterans
are saying they are tired and burned out. “Guys
are saying we’re halfway around the world fght-
ing people of color under the guise of democracy
and we can’t see how it’s benefted anyone,”
Black said. “It’s hard
to fght halfway around
the world for people’s
freedom when you’re
not sure you have it at
home.”
This war, launched
under false pretenses,
now has so little merit
that the enrollment of
African-Americans in
the military may be at
its lowest point since the
creation of the all-vol-
unteer military in 1973.
In 2000, 23.5 percent of
Army recruits were Afri-
can-American. By 2005,
the percentage dropped to 13.9 percent. National
Public Radio this week quoted a Pentagon statistic
that said that African-American propensity to join
the military had dropped to 9 percent.
Order Of WOrship

pAsTOr’s pAGe
Technically, 13.9 percent is about the
proportion of African-Americans in the general
population. But the military’s meritocracy has
long been a disproportionate option for young
African-Americans because of a disproportionate
lack of career opportunities and decent public
schools to prepare them for college.
The drop in African-American enrollment
in the military may be as powerful a collective
political statement about Iraq as when
Muhammad Ali refused to be drafted during
the Vietnam War. Before the 2003 invasion
of Iraq, major polls showed that African-
American support for the invasion was as low
as 19 percent, according to the Joint Center
for Political and Economic Studies, while white
support ran between 58 percent and 73 percent
in major polls.
Even today African-Americans by far lead the
way in calling the war a mistake. According to
Gallup, 85 percent of African Americans say it
was a mistake, compared to 53 percent of white
Americans. According to Pew, a plurality of
white Americans, 49 percent, still say it was the
right decision to invade Iraq, compared to 21
percent of African-Americans.
“African-Americans are always more sensitive
to anything that smacks of neocolonialism,
which this war did smack of,” said Joint Center
political analyst David Bositis.
Segal and Black said that sensitivity has
nothing to do with patriotism. “What we’re
getting is not an opposition to war, but
considerable opposition to this war,” said Segal,
director of the University of Maryland’s Center
for Research on Military Organization. He
has done soldier attitude surveys for the Army.
“What we’re seeing is a growing resentment
that it feels to them that the military has gone to
war, but not the nation. The military has gone
to war, the nation has gone to Wal-Mart.”
Black said that he still believes “without
a shadow of a doubt” that the military still
provides one of the best opportunities for
African-Americans to advance in a nation where
civilian opportunities remain checkered. But he
said the military may underestimate how young
people are absorbing the horrifc images in
Iraq’s chaos. Pentagon offcials largely attribute
the drop in African-American interest in the
armed forces to “infuencers,” parents, coaches,
ministers, and school counselors who urge
youth not to enlist.
“I think some of that is true,” Black said.
“But I taught ROTC in high school, and the
kids themselves are a lot smarter about this stuff.
They see the news and they can’t justify going
into a fght for something they have no faith in.”

GRADUATE RECOGNITION
SUNDAY
M
ost of our new members do not know
that we honor, recognize and give
“shout-outs” to all of our graduates
on the second Sunday in June. Because so many
members don’t know that, they have not yet sent
in their names and the schools from which they
are graduating so that they can be recognized on
graduate Sunday.
I am urging you today to please submit either
your name or the names of persons in your
family who have fnished elementary school,
middle school, high school, college, or graduate
school.
Submit their names to the church offce, to the
attention of the “Graduate Recognition Sunday
Committee.”
We don’t want any member’s name left off of
the program, and we don’t want any “surprises”
on the day of the program! All of our graduates
are asked to be here in the Sanctuary on Sunday,
June 10th in order that we might honor you and
say to God that we thank God for God’s gifts
given to you as you complete this “milestone” in
your educational journey.
CONGRATULATIONS TO
LUELLA MCLAURIN!
T
his coming Sunday, June 2nd, at the
Sheraton Chicago Hotel Ballroom,
our own Mrs. Luella McLaurin will be
inducted into the 2007 Chicago Senior Citizens
Hall of Fame!
Mrs. McLaurin was nominated for this honor
by the 8th Ward Alderwoman, Michelle Harris.
We are proud of Mrs. McLaurin. We give
thanks to God for this honor that has come her
way, and we ask you to be sure to give her a
“high-fve” today in honor of her now being a
part of the “hall of fame” for Chicago’s senior
citizens.
Sincerely yours,
Pastor Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.

characterized by “lows” (depression), alternating
with extreme inappropriate “highs” (mania).
Symptoms may include:
Talking rapidly •
Distractibility and/or irritability •
Infated self-esteem or grandiosity •
Changes in appetite •
Feeling sad, worthless, or guilty, •
without cause

TO dO JUsTiCe
O
ver the past thirty years, the war on drugs
has been fought by simply attempting to
use incarceration as a deterrent. Public
policy has leaned toward implementing increasingly
harsher penalties for non-violent drug related
crimes. This approach has proved to be impotent.
In Illinois, in particular, each year, the percent-
ages and individuals incarcerated for drug-related
crimes have constantly risen. I don’t have to tell
you that the communities disproportionately
affected are black and brown communities. Ac-
cording to the study released by the U.S. Census
in 2005, African Americans comprise 15% of the
Illinois population, while Hispanics comprise 14%.
However, according to the same census, African
Americans make up 61% of the prison population,
while Hispanics make up 11%. As the numbers
have increased, seemingly exponentially, the state
of Illinois’ commitment to keep pace with the need
has not been met. In short, too many non-violent
offenders are being sent to prison for non-violent
drug related offenses without the beneft of receiv-
ing any treatment while in prison. This inaction
leads to ever increasing recidivism rates as those
who are released return to prison on similar charges.
A policy of incarceration for non-violent drug of-
fenses has proven to be in effectual. What is needed,
is alternative forms of sentencing and treatment
which help the non-violent drug related offender to
get assistance.
The Center for Health and Justice at Treatment
Alternatives for Safe Communities, Inc. (TASC),
recently released a detailed report promoting a pub-
lic policy of “No Entry.” No Entry’s desired effect
is that the cycle of drugs and crime ceases before a
person is sentenced to prison. What No Entry does
is seeks to treat the illness rather than criminalize
the illness.
Moreover, treatment of the illness is less ex-
pensive for Illinois taxpayers. The annual cost for
incarceration per 10,000 individuals in the State of
Illinois is $226 million. The annual average cost for
probation, community based treatment, and case
management is $59.3 million. This yields a savings
of $166.7 million. Fiscally, No Entry makes sense,
for the sake of our communities, and the people
who live in them.
However, the truth must be told. There are many
people and corporations who will not support this
initiative because they proft off the prison industry.
They will not want to see their profts reduced in
order to help those who need help.
Illinois HB 1830 and SB 1442 are proposed
bills currently in the state legislature, which call for
$10,000,000 to be initially appropriated in order
to expand treatment and support services for drug-
involved offenders in FY 08. Passage of these bills
would support a No Entry policy alternative, which
will begin the road of fnding alternative modes of
treatment and sentencing, as well as save the state
approximately $39,000,000 in FY 08.
You should have received a letter as you entered
the Sanctuary. If you want to see people aided and
not criminalized for their illness, I urge you to sign
this letter and return it to an usher.

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE
If we are afraid to use our time, abilities or energies on something worthwhile,
there may well come a time when we want to use them and we can’t. This no-
tion reminded me of a story told to me by a friend who owned a small sailboat
that had been in their garage back home when he was younger.
It was a three-seater, painted white with blue trim. His father built it, and for some
time, they used it every summer. But there was a time when it had not been in
the water for about three years, and they took it out in the yard. You could see
daylight through the cracks in the bottom where the wood had dried.
They stuffed the cracks with oakum, and put water in it for several days before
the wood swelled and it would hold water as it should. Then, once again, more
or less watertight, it was ready for the lake.
If that boat would have been left in the garage a few more days, it would only
have gotten worse. Dry rot might have set in. A boat is not made to exist perma-
nently in a garage. It is built for the water. It is meant to be used. And if it is not
used, it will deteriorate.
Isn’t life similar to that? Life is given to be lived and used. It is not meant to be
stored on a closet shelf or packed away in an attic. There’s an old prayer that
says, “Lord, let me wear out, and not rust out.”
Life is a matter of using opportunities. If we hesitate, it may be too late. If we
are afraid to use our time, abilities or energies on something worthwhile, there
may well come a time when we will want to use them, and we can’t.
Christ said that whoever would save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life
for my sake, will fnd it. A boat in the garage may be safe, but that’s not what
boats are for.

completed, that her sin has been paid for, that
she has received from the LORD’s hand double
for all her sins.

“Every valley shall be raised up,
every mountain and hill made low; the rough

revealed, and all mankind together will see it.
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

each by name. Because of his great power and
mighty strength, not one of them is missing.

LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God”?
