TRUST AND OBEY
Verse 1
When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Chorus
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey.
Verse 2
Not a shadow can rise, Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt nor a fear, Not a sigh nor a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
(Repeat chorus)
Verse 3
Not a burden we bear, Not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief nor a loss, Not a frown nor a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.
(Repeat chorus)
Verse 4
But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay,
For the favor He shows and the joy He bestows,
Are for those who will trust and obey.
(Repeat chorus)
Verse 5
Then in fellowship sweet, we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, Where he sends we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.
(Repeat chorus)
11:00 a.m.
GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU
Verse 1
Be not dismayed whate’er be tide,
God will take care of you; Beneath His wings
Of love abide, God will take care of you.
Chorus
God will take care of you, Through ev’ry day,
O’er all the way; He will take care of you,
God will take care of you.
Verse 2
Through days of toil when heart does fail,
God will take care of you; When dangers ferce
Your path assail, God will take care of you.
(Repeat chorus)
Verse 3
All you may need He will provide,
God will take care of you; Nothing you ask
Will be denied, God will take care of you.
(Repeat chorus)
Verse 4
No matter what may be the test,
God will take care of you; Lean weary one,
Upon His breast, God will take care of you.
(Repeat chorus)

Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces,
and their houses shall be made a dunghill:
because there is no other God that can deliver
after this sort.

Then the king promoted
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the prov-

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered
and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are
not careful to answer thee in this matter.
17
If it
be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver
us from the burning fery furnace, and he will
deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
18
But if
not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will
not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden
image which thou hast set up.
26
Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the
mouth of the burning fery furnace, and spake,
and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye
servants of the most high God, come forth, and
come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and
Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fre.
27
And the princes, governors, and captains,
and the king’s counsellors, being gathered
together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the
fre had no power, nor was an hair of their head
singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the
smell of fre had passed on them.
28
Then Nebu-
chadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God
of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath
sent his angel, and delivered his servants that
trusted in him, and have changed the king’s
word, and yielded their bodies, that they might
not serve nor worship any god, except their own
God.

thing amiss against the God of Shadrach,

21
Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live
for ever.
22
My God hath sent his angel, and hath
shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt
me: forasmuch as before him innocency was
found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I
done no hurt.
23
Then was the king exceeding
glad for him, and commanded that they should
take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was
taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt
was found upon him, because he believed in his
God.
24
And the king commanded, and they
brought those men which had accused Daniel,
and they cast them into the den of lions, them,
their children, and their wives; and the lions had
the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in
pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the
den.
25
Then king Darius wrote unto all people,
nations, and languages, that dwell in all the
earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.
26
I make a
decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom
men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel:
for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and
his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed,
and his dominion shall be even unto the end.

He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs
and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath
delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.

21
Then they entered Capernaum. When the
Sabbath arrived, Jesus lost no time in getting to
the meeting place. He spent the day there
teaching.
22
They were surprised at his teaching
- so forthright, so confdent - not quibbling and
quoting like the religion scholars.
23
Suddenly,
while still in the meeting place, he was inter-
rupted by a man who was deeply disturbed and
yelling out,
24
“What business do you have here
with us, Jesus? Nazarene! I know what you’re up
to! You’re the Holy One of God, and you’ve
come to destroy us!”
25
Jesus shut him up:
“Quiet! Get out of him!”
26
The afficting spirit
threw the man into spasms, protesting loudly
- and got out.
27
Everyone there was incredulous,
buzzing with curiosity. “What’s going on here?
A new teaching that does what it says? He shuts
up defling, demonic spirits and sends them
packing!”
28
News of this traveled fast and was
soon all over Galilee.

After many years of trying to be faithful in ministry to our television viewing audience, we have
had to make a fnancial decision because of the lack of funds. We would rather lose the viewing
audience who watches us on Sunday nights than lose staff!
We do not have the money to stay on WJYS any longer. When the decision was made, as to
whether or not we should come off of WJYS or fre staff, we decided (as we always do) to make our
choice, in light of the human costs and the potential loss to families of income. We would rather lose
television viewers than lose staff members who depend on their income to support their families.
Staying on WJYS is costing our congregation a tremendous amount of money. We are losing in
excess of $14,000.00 a month! Our television viewers do not support us fnancially. Our television
viewers do not buy tapes. Our television viewers do not send donations and we pay for that WJYS
airtime entirely out of our church offerings!
We cannot afford to be on WJYS and on national television at the same time. We will remain on
national television and we can be seen (videotaped or TiVo’d) every Sunday morning at six-thirty in
the morning Central Standard Time.
We are on the only Black-owned national television cable channel in the country. We support
Black businessmen and Black businesswomen and we will continue to support Cathy Hughes and
TV One, as we try to minister to our national television audience every Sunday morning.
Please alert all of your friends and family members who do not have Direct TV or TV One that
they have from now until Sunday, July 29th to get it. That is, if they want to continue to watch us on
television!
The cost for that cable coverage per year would be more than they have given Trinity in all of the
years that we have been on television station WJYS.
We will continue to be on TV One and we thank you for your loyal support of our congregation
and its Media Ministry.
JULY 22ND IS OUR LAST SUNDAY ON WJYS!

M
ost of our members do not know that my Master’s Degree from the University of Chicago’s Divin-
ity School was in the area of Islam in West Africa during the 19th Century — when the trans-Atlan-
tic Slave Trade was at its zenith. Islam has as many manifestations as Christianity and Judaism, but
most Americans are only fed a media diet on Islam as it relates to the “war on terror” and the Palestinian muslim
problem in the “state” of Israel.
Islam is much more, however, than the corporate-owned media would have you think. Below is a very helpful
article on one branch if Islam in 2007.

ChALLENGES fOR PROGRESSIVE MuSLIMS
— Omid Saf
I
t is a commonplace today to begin a discourse on Islam with the theme of “crisis.” It is not my
intention here to add to that unrelenting discursive assault. Instead, I would like to describe the
salient features of Muslims who self-identify as progressive, and comment upon the challenges
they face in struggling to realize the full potential of the progressive movement.
Who are progressive Muslims? Progressive Islam both continues and radically departs from the
150-year-old tradition of liberal Islam, embodied by ‘Abduh, Afghani, Shari’ati, and others. Un-
like most earlier modernists, progressive Muslims are consistently critical of colonialism, both in
its nineteenth-century and in its current manifestations. Progressive Muslims develop a critical and
nonapologetic “multiple critique” vis-à-vis both Islam and modernity.
And again distinct from their liberal forefathers, another feature of the progressive Muslim move-
ment has been the equal level of female participation and leadership, as well as the move to highlight
women’s rights as part of a broader engagement with human rights.
Progressives measure their success not in developing new and beatifc theologies but rather by
the on-the-ground transformation that they can produce in Muslim and non-Muslim societies. This
movement is characterized by emphasis on a number of themes: striving to realize a just and plural-
istic society through critically engaging Islam, a relentless pursuit of social justice, an emphasis on
gender equality as a foundation of human rights, a vision of religious and ethnic pluralism, and a
methodology of nonviolent resistance.

LOOk AGAIN!, cont’d
The majority of those who have engaged in the Muslim struggles of social justice, liberation, and
gender equality have hitherto lived outside North America, in such places as South Africa, Iran,
Malaysia, Turkey, and Egypt. An exciting trend in this nascent global Muslim progressive movement
is that progressives everywhere are seeking out each other and cross-pollinating.
We in North America -- both Muslims and non-Muslims -- must once and for all give up the
notion that the axis mundi uniquely passes through this continent. Progressive Islam seeks to stand
in opposition to all forms of economic exploitation as well as imperialism, including today’s most
dominant variety: American.
That’s a sketch of what progressive Islam looks like now. There are, I believe, other features
progressives in North America will need to exhibit more fully, and which thus stand before them as
challenges. First, progressive Muslims must seek to transcend antagonistic attitudes toward main-
stream Muslim communities. There is a substantial difference between being an alternative to the
conventional Muslim discourse on some issues and being antagonistic to the mainstream Muslim
community.
Second, progressives can become every bit as rigid, authoritarian, and indeed dogmatic as the
conservative and dogmatic movements they so readily criticize, so they must struggle against these
tendencies within the movement. Third, one hopes to see engagement with the multiple intellec-
tual and spiritual traditions of Islam. A progressive Muslim agenda should be both progressive and
Islamic, deriving its inspiration from the heart of the Islamic tradition. It cannot survive as a graft of
secular humanism onto the tree of Islam; ultimately, it must be rooted in the fertile soil of Islam.
Further, progressive Muslims will need to invigorate the spiritual core of the reform movement;
there is no way to transform society without simultaneously transforming the hearts of those within
it. A meaningful progressive movement must therefore combine the transformation of the world
into a just world with the transformation of the human self into a compassionate and selfess being.
Finally, recovering courtesy and spiritual manners will be important for progressives. It is impera-
tive for the lofty social ideals of progressive Muslims to be refected in the ethics and spiritual man-
ners (akhlaq and adab) of their interpersonal relations. Some of the Suf ethics of dealing with fellow
human beings should characterize progressives’ relationships among themselves and with others,
seeking to refect the Divine Presence and qualities.

pAsTOr’s pAGe
Some might call this vision of progressive
Islam romantic and idealistic. Yet without some
measure of idealism, as well as a passionate love
for the Divine and humanity, I believe we have
no hope of becoming ever more fully human.
On this point, as on so many others, Gandhi
offers a keen and apt observation: “As soon as
we lose the moral basis, we cease to be religious.
There is no such thing as religion overriding
morality.”
As a parent, I tend to think of movements in
terms of growth stages. There is something of
a toddler in the present stage of the progres-
sive movement (with its frequent protests,
temper tantrums, and falling), and something
of an adolescent (with its awkwardness and
identity crises). But I, for one, hope that with
time, patience, love, and true intellectual jihad
(struggle), this movement can mature into a
force that embodies the teachings of compassion
and justice that stand at the very heart of the
Islamic tradition.

PASTORAL LETTER
ON THE IRAQ WAR
T
his pastoral letter, written by the
Presidents of the United Church of
Christ Related Seminaries, the Offcers
of the United Church of Christ, and the 39
Conference Ministers of the United Church
of Christ was read in our Worship Service last
Sunday, on the July 4 weekend.
That is the weekend when we celebrate our
country’s freedom. Because several members
have asked for a copy of that letter, we are re-
producing it in this week’s bulletin.
“The war in Iraq is now in its ffth year. Justifed
as a means to end oppression, this war has imposed
the new oppression of terror on the people of Iraq.
Justifed as the only way to protect the world from
weapons of mass destruction, this war has led to the
massive destruction of communal life in Iraq. Justi-
fed as a means to end the rule of terror, this war
has bred more terror. Every day we look for justice,
but all we see is bloodshed. Every day we yearn for
righteousness, but all we hear is a cry.
“Thousands of precious American lives have been
lost; thousands more have been altered forever by
profound injuries. We grieve each loss and embrace
bereaved families with our prayers and compassion.
Tens of thousands more innocent Iraqi lives are daily
being offered on the altar of preemptive war and
sectarian violence. They, too, are precious, and we
weep for them. In our name human rights have been
Sunday, July 8, 2007 12 © Sermons copyrighted by Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.
violated, abuse and torture sanctioned, civil liberties
dismantled, Iraqi infrastructure and lives destroyed.
Billions of dollars have been diverted from education,
health care, and the needs of the poor in this land and
around the world. Efforts to restrain the real sources
of global terrorism have been ignored or subverted.
Trust and respect for the United States throughout
the world has been traded for self-serving political
gain. Every day we look for justice, but all we see is
bloodshed. Every day we yearn for righteousness,
but all we hear is a cry.
“We confess that too often the church has been
little more than a silent witness to evil deeds. We
have prayed without protest. We have recoiled from
the horror this war has unleashed without resisting
the arrogance and folly at its heart. We have been
more afraid of confict in our churches than outraged
over the deceptions that have killed thousands. We
have confused patriotism with self-interest. As citi-
zens of this land we have been made complicit in the
bloodshed and the cries. Lord, have mercy upon us.
In the midst of our lament we give thanks – for
pastors and laity who have raised courageous voices
against the violence and the deceit, for military person-
nel who have served with honor and integrity, for
chaplains who have cared for soldiers and their families
with compassion and courage, for veterans whose
experience has led them to say, ‘no more,’ for humani-
tarian groups including the Middle East Council of
Churches, who have cared for the victims of violence
and the growing tide of refugees, for the fragile
Christian community in Iraq that continues to bear
witness to the Gospel under intense pressure and fear,
for public offcials who have challenged this war risking
reputation and career. The Gospel witness has not
been completely silenced, and for this, we are grateful.
Today we call for an end to this war, an end to our
reliance on violence as the frst, rather than the last re-
sort, and end to the arrogant unilateralism of preemp-
tive war. Today we call for the humility and courage
to acknowledge failure and error, to accept the futility
of our current path, and we cry out for the creativity
to seek new paths of peacemaking in the Middle East,
through regional engagement and true multinational
policing. Today we call for acknowledgement of our
responsibility for the destruction caused by sanctions
and war, thereby, we pray, beginning to rebuild trust in
the Middle East and around the world. Today we call
for repentance in our nation and for the recognition
in our churches, that security is found in submitting to
Christ, not by dominating others.
To this end may we join protest to prayer, sup-
port ministries of compassion for victims here and in
the Middle East, cast off the fear that has made us
accept the way of violence and return again to the
way of Jesus. Thus may bloodshed end and cries be
transformed to the harmonies of justice and the melo-
dies of peace. For this we yearn, for this we pray, and
toward this end we rededicate ourselves as children
of a loving God who gives ‘light to those who sit in
darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet
into the way of peace.”

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE
A REfLECTION
Jesus, you tell us to “sell what we have and give alms.” Not even
your pastors talk of giving more than ten percent! We suppose you
mean share. Your approach is often radical and we have to adapt it to
the high cost of living. After all, you wore no shoes in Palestine, and
there is no record you paid for higher education.
We do listen to you, Lord. For instance, we are great for selling
what we have (what we have extra, that is). We call it a “garage sale.”
It just never occurred to us to try out the rest of it, and “give alms,”
as you say.
Your words might even inspire us to match our dinners out, with a
donation for world hunger. When we buy new clothes to stuff in the
closet, and wear twice a year, we might even give alms to clothe the
naked or use one of our automobiles to drive the elderly.
It won’t be a drastic change in our lifestyle, Lord, because we aren’t
radicals like you. On the other hand, we want at least a little treasure
in the bank you brag about, where thieves do not come near or moths
destroy.
Lord, disturb our comfortable ways a little. Help us to comfort the
world.
Your Friends in Service,
The Stewardship Ministry

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
