Blessed assurance, Jesus is Mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long,
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Now then, let me
advise you how you can save your own life and
the life of your son Solomon.
13
Go in to King
David and say to him, ‘My lord the king, did
you not swear to me your servant: “Surely
Solomon your son shall be king after me, and
he will sit on my throne”? Why then has
Adonijah become king?’
14
While you are still
there talking to the king, I will come in and
confrm what you have said.”
32
King David said, “Call in
Zadok the priest, Nathan the
prophet and Benaiah son of
Jehoiada.” When they came
before the king,
33
he said to
them: “Take your lord’s
servants with you and set
Solomon my son on my own
mule and take him down to
Gihon.
34
There have Zadok
the priest and Nathan the
prophet anoint him king over
Israel. Blow the trumpet and
shout, ‘Long live King
Solomon!’
35
Then you are to go
up with him, and he is to come
and sit on my throne and reign in my place. I
have appointed him ruler over Israel and
Judah.”

Now Adonijah, whose mother was Haggith, put
himself forward and said, “I will be king.” So he
got chariots and horses ready, with ffty men to
run ahead of him.
6
(His father had never
interfered with him by asking, “Why do you
behave as you do?” He was also very handsome
and was born next after Absalom.)
7
Adonijah
conferred with Joab son of Zeruiah
and with Abiathar the priest, and
they gave him their support.
8
But Zadok the priest, Benaiah
son of Jehoiada, Nathan the
prophet, Shimei and Rei and
David’s special guard did not
join Adonijah.
9
Adonijah then
sacrifced sheep, cattle and
fattened calves at the Stone of
Zoheleth near En Rogel. He
invited all his brothers, the
king’s sons, and all the men
of Judah who were royal
offcials,
10
but he did not
invite Nathan the prophet
or Benaiah or the special
guard or his brother Solomon.

Then Nathan asked Bathsheba, Solomon’s
mother, “Have you not heard that Adonijah, the
son of Haggith, has become king without our

MATTHEW 4:18–22 (NIV)
18
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee,
he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his
brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the
lake, for they were fshermen.
19
“Come, follow
me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fshers of
men.”
20
At once they left their nets and followed
him.
21
Going on from there, he saw two other
brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother
John. They were in a boat with their father
Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them,
22
and immediately they left the boat and their
father and followed him.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of
God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living

spiritual act of worship.
2
Do not conform any
longer to the pattern of this world, but be
transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Then you will be able to test and approve what
God’s will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

MERCY, MERCY!
These past few weeks have been a big few weeks
for mercy.
First, Paris Hilton was released from a Los Ange-
les jail, after being incarcerated for violating the terms
of her probation on alcohol-related driving violations.
While the LA sheriff was rebuked for his attempt to
mercifully spare Hilton from weeks of incarceration,
Hilton’s divine guardian gave her a second chance at a
life more worthwhile than “models and bottles.”
When Barbara Walters interviewed Hilton from her
jail cell, asking, “How are you different?” the young
socialite waxed theological: “I’m not the same person
I was,” she said. “I used to act dumb. It was an act...
It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for
the young girls who looked up to me. I know now that
I can make a difference, that I have the power to do
that. I have been thinking that I want to do different
things when I am out of here. I have become much
more spiritual. God has given me this new chance.”
Then on July 2, President Bush commuted the
prison sentence of I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, the vice
president’s chief of staff, convicted of perjuring himself
to a federal grand jury during the investigation of the
release of the classifed CIA status of Valerie Plame.
While defending the process that led to Libby’s con-
viction, Bush considered the sentence of thirty months
to be “excessive,” and thus worthy of his (unusual)
intervention.
Usually the president has argued for harsher pun-
ishments; the news analysis that has followed the com-
mutation shows the inconsistency of Bush’s treatment
of “Scooter” with his handling of every other request
for sovereign mercy that has come across his desk.
These two events have more in common than their
timing. Both Bush’s mercy toward Libby and Hilton’s
claim of a divinely awarded “second chance” operate
on the principle that the individuals in question de-
serve special treatment from the sovereign.
In Hilton’s case, her position as wealthy heiress and
(may the gods save us!) role model for young girls ev-
erywhere means, in her mind, that God intends for
her to put her life to better use, making a “difference”
A
lmost every child of the 60’s can remember Cannonball Adderly’s “Have Mercy on Me!”
Almost every Christian knows what the Prophet Micah said that God requires of us, and that
is “to do Justice, to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God.” The 21st Century white
American distortions of both Adderly’s song and God’s word, however, are the kinds of things that
make you go “hmmmmmmmmm???” (To use Arsenio Hall’s words)
Michael Kessler, a professor of government at Georgetown University, helps us understand this
arrogance (as opposed to walking humbly) in his analysis which is printed below.

in others’ lives. Presumably, she deserves this merciful
second chance because of her prominent position and
capacity to fund a life pursuing more worthwhile goals
than constant partying.
The jury is out on whether she’ll put this opportu-
nity to good use (perhaps she’s another Darfur spokes-
person in the making?).
But isn’t there an arrogance in her declaration of
special divine benefcence that runs counter to a long
tradition in Western theology? The Western tradition
is saturated with an Augustinian-inspired disdain for an
individual’s arrogant assumption that one is so impor-
tant as to be essential to the unfolding of God’s plan.
Moreover, there is a deep biblical tradition that “God
is no respecter of persons” (Acts 10:34). Unmoved by
riches or earthly power, God is said to be interested
only in our internal motivations: “For the Lord sees not
as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance,
but the Lord looks on the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7).
Perhaps Hilton’s God reads People magazine and sees
an opportunity.
But why does Hilton think herself privileged enough
to get out of jail, reformed and tasked with a new mis-
sion, while her cellmates languish under the burdens
of under-representation, poverty, disease, and despair?
After all, the same Lord who “gave” her the second
chance implores us to remember that “the rich and
poor meet together: the Lord is the maker of them all”
(Proverbs 22:2). Is she really that special?
These questions are more easily answered in Libby’s
case. While Libby has been silent, it is clear that the
reason Scooter got special treatment was precisely due
to his position as trusted friend. Unlike Yahweh, Bush
does respect persons -- in this case the close confdant
and right hand of the vice president.
Perhaps this is how it should be with the leaders of
earthly kingdoms? We are, after all, humans easily se-
duced by our own powers. Friends of the sovereign win
special favor. And, legally, the commutational power
exercised by the president is unambiguously granted
by constitutional authority. As Carl Schmitt argued,
sovereignty is most transparent not in the routine mo-
ments of its exercise, but in the exceptions to the gen-
eral rules.
In this special case, the sovereign Bush decided that
the friend Libby deserved an exception to the harsh sen-
tences consistently imposed elsewhere. And there’s not
one thing to be done about this except try to shame a
sovereign who seems to have forgotten how to blush.
We should ponder this order of justice and mercy.
You and I would not receive such mercy from the seat
of earthly or heavenly power. Justice for us is meted
out through rigid application of rules, unless we are the
favored chief of staff (or party girl) seated at the right
hand of the ruler.
Likewise, most of us do not have the fnancial safety
cushion to turn the lemons of incarceration into the
lemonade of a new social mission. In fact, such incar-
ceration would leave us indelibly tarred as convicted
felons, unable to access many social and economic
opportunities needed to seize our second chance.
A Hiltonesque jailhouse conversion, whether sincere
or not, would not save us from a diffcult restoration
of our dignity in the eyes of others. No committee of
political operatives will fundraise for our defense, nor
will the media powers broadcast our conversion testi-
mony. You and I, poor schlubs in a merciless world, are
on our own.

PEOPLE OF FAITH: CALL TO ACTION
9 MILLION CHILDREN ARE COUNTING ON YOU THIS JULY
By the end of July, Congress is expected to
make a decision on whether millions of children
in America have the health coverage they need
to reach their God-given potential in life and
school. Over the past 10 years Medicaid and
the State Children’s Health Insurance Program
(SCHIP) reduced the number of uninsured
children in America, but nearly nine million
children are still uninsured and millions more
are underinsured.
As funding for SCHIP expires this year, our
elected offcials have the opportunity to expand
health coverage to all children. As people of
faith, we must play a prophetic role of tell-
ing Congress to only support legislation
that guarantees all children — not just some
children — health coverage with comprehen-
sive benefts and true automatic enrollment
so that children get and keep health coverage
regardless of where they live.
Each child is God’s own beloved and
how we treat each child is how we treat God.

TAkE ACTION TODAY!
Take the next logical, achievable and moral
step to guarantee comprehensive health and
mental health coverage for all children in
America! No child can wait another year or fve
years for health coverage. Children need you to
act now!
By the end of this month, both the Senate and
the House plan to pass children’s health insur-
ance legislation. It is critical that people of
faith work together to create a loud, unifed,
undeniable call for society to live up to its
moral responsibility to care and protect all
our children.
We need to continuously call upon our elected
offcials to:
Ensure that • all children and pregnant
women have health coverage and access to
timely health care.
Guarantee • all children and pregnant
women comprehensive health coverage
for all medically necessary services regard-
less of where they live.
Simplify the application process, institute •
true automatic enrollment, and ensure
eligibility for a full year to make it easy
for all children to get covered and stay
covered.
*These principles are all embodied in the All
Healthy Children Act (S. 1564/H.R. 1688).
What you can do for all our children…
Pray for hope and healing for all our •
children.
Tell your elected offcials to cover all •
children this year through repeated
e-mails (visit www.childrensdefense.
org/ActionEmail for specifc texts) and
multiple phone calls (call the Capital
Switchboard at 1-800-861-5343).
Tell your friends and family to stand for •
children by engaging in the Healthy Child
Campaign.

CAN I gET A WITNESS?
– Rose Wright-Scott, Minister for Program Development
Witness for Justice: July 23, 2007
T
here are times in my life as a Pastor, I see
so much that I have to stop and question
what I’m doing and why am I supposed
to be doing it. Lately I’ve been wondering where
does justice really start? At what point in life did
your witness for justice kick in?
Perhaps it was on the playground in elemen-
tary school when the light complexion children
were always called to the front of the line by
someone who looks just like you. Maybe in your
family, someone showed favoritism toward your
sibling because of her so-called “good hair.”
“Can I Get a Witness?” Maybe justice started
when Auntie Lizzie had to go down to the
Welfare Offce, and needed an advocate. Justice
may have been started by the ones who want a
sandwich, had the money, but were not welcome
at the lunch counter.
Yes, I know we may have put this out of our
minds, but are things really different today?
When you were sitting at the counter in the
restaurant, how long did it take you to be waited
on? How was your service in contrast to the
couple of another race next to you? “Can I Get
a Witness?” Oh, how easily we fail to tell our
stories. Justice rolled for some fathers during a
long hot trip, when their little black girls needed
to use the restroom but were denied. “Can I
Get a Witness?”
I know you don’t want to think about these
painful things – stuffed in the back of your mind
and the bottom of your heart. Maybe getting
in touch with this justice stirs up the ghost that
you’d rather let sleep. Being followed around
in the department store because of the color of
your skin and the texture of your hair — still
happens today, don’t fool yourself.
Justice begins for me when I’m called to
school for two young girls of the same family
that continuously receive discipline that does not
ft the crime. These two middle school girls have
been negatively labeled. It’s been established:
the only option for them is alternativeschool.
One of these girls is an honor student. They’ve
seen so much, experienced so much pain already,
it’s diffcult to recover. “Can I Get a Witness?”
Somebody said because their family members
have been in and out of prison, because they
killed at an early age, these girls are doomed to
repeat the cycle. I will not buy into that mental-
ity.
Justice begins when an HIV positive mother
needs training and her confdence boosted to
help her become that independent caregiver for
her children. Justice hits home when events are
advertised for all, yet all cannot get access to the
facility. I could go on and on questioning where
justice begins.
Where does justice begin with you today?
Does it begin somewhere else, or is it in your
Youth Sunday, July 29, 2007 13 © Sermons copyrighted by Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr
pAsTOr’s pAGe
schoolyard, your neighborhood? What about
your church? Maybe justice begins with justice
folks. Do we really practice what we preach?
“Can I Get a Witness?” We all need to ponder
from time to time — stop, assess and ask our-
selves some justice questions.
The United Church of Christ has more than 5,700
churches throughout the United States. Rooted in the
Christian tradition 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.
O
n Tuesday, August 7, at 11:00 a.m.
(CST), the National Action Network’s
Decency Initiative will take to the
streets in 20 cities, including Chicago, in an effort
to mount public pressure on the music industry to
adopt a universal standard of respect for all people.
Since April, the Decency Initiative, under the
leadership of Reverend Al Sharpton and Tamika
Mallory, and in collaboration with dozens of
activists across the nation, has demanded that
the music recording industry eliminate the use of
the offensive “n,” “b,” and “h” words in record-
ings. Because no other ethnic group is subjected
to denigration for proft by the music industry,
the Decency Initiative will continue to demand a
universal standard of respect, particularly for all
women and African Americans.
Protests and press conferences will take place
outside the offces of major music distributors that
distribute this offensive music within our com-
munities. The protests will be multicultural and
will include all age groups. We invite all women
and men (especially leaders and students), from
all facets of the community to join us. We will
stand united in defense of decency, and protest
the use of public airwaves to promote disrespect.
This gathering is just the beginning of a national
movement to achieve this end.
For more information, send an e-mail to the
Chicago Chapter of the National Action Network
at NAN_Chgo@yahoo.com, or visit www.nationa-
lactionnetwork.net.

he Reverend William “Bill” Lee currently serves as the Senior Minister
to Youth at Ebenezer A.M.E. Church in Fort Washington, Maryland,
where he develops, organizes, and implements a range of systematic
programs that impact over 3,000 youth that are a part of the church. He is
known throughout the nation for creativity in preaching, teaching and worship.
He has instituted dynamic initiatives that embrace the unique styles, interests and
talents of the “hip-hop generation.” His impact and presence are felt in schools
throughout the area, as a regular workshop leader, commencement speaker and
advocate. Rev. Lee has garnered involvement from BET and area radio hosts to
foster informative and groundbreaking discussions and programs in the church
and in schools including the Got Gifts Tour and Teens Allowed to Talk, which provide opportunities
for youth to express their talents and opinions in positive environments. Through these and other
programs, Rev. Lee has orchestrated partnerships with area principals to provide adult support and
resources needed to address the concerns within area schools.
Rev. Lee’s preaching and teaching gifts span all generations. He travels throughout the nation
and internationally to lead and speak at revivals, conferences and worship services. Rev. Lee can be
found leading adults and youth alike in innovative styles of worship that encourage congregants to
“Rock for Jesus.”
One of his most memorable accomplishments is the negotiation of a gang truce among rival crews
in Prince George’s County, Maryland, which has gained attention from the Washington Post, CNN,
Gospel Today and the Associated Press. Since the truce he has worked with crew members to provide
life skills training and employment opportunity.
Rev. Lee earned a Master of Divinity from the Howard University School of Divinity, Washington,
DC. While at Howard, he was blessed to serve as a Graduate Assistant at the prestigious Rankin Chapel
and currently works with the Chapel on a monthly student-led worship service known as “Wednesday
Night Live.” He has also begun teaching through the Continuing Education program at the Howard
University School of Divinity.
Foremost, Rev. Lee is a servant of the Lord. He has a heart for God’s people and desires for everyone
to embrace their God-given gifts and talents, regardless of age. He is married to the love of his life,
Quandra.

R
ev. Tony Lee is the
founder and se-
nior pastor of the
Community of Hope Af-
rican Methodist Episcopal
Church, which opened its
doors for worship on Easter
Sunday, April 16, 2006. Rev.
Lee formerly served as Senior
Minister to Young Adults
at Ebenezer A.M.E. Church in Ft. Washington,
Maryland, under the pastoral leadership of Rev. Dr.
Grainger Browning, Jr. and Rev. Dr. Jo Ann Brown-
ing. Prior to that assignment, Rev. Lee served as
Ebenezer’s Senior Minister to Youth. During his
tenure, he oversaw the development of a wide range
of youth ministries that engaged young people in
a style of praise and worship that embraced their
unique styles and interests. These ministries in-
cluded nationally recognized scouting and rites of
passage programs, educational outreach, clothing
design, cartoon ministries and an exceptional per-
sons ministry to focus on youth with special needs.
Rev. Lee has also served as the Assistant Pastor of
the First Baptist Church of Englewood, New Jer-
sey, under the pastoral leadership of Rev. John H.
Spencer, Jr.
Rev. Lee received national media attention on
BET’s Cousin Jeff’s Chronicles, CNN and CSPAN.
He has also been featured in various print media,
including Upscale magazine and The Washington
Post. Rev. Lee has been honored by the distin-
guished privilege to preach at the Sunday morning
worship service of the historical Howard University
Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel. He also spoke
at the 2005 Millions More Movement, the ten year
commemoration of the Million Man March. Rev.
Lee serves on the leadership team of “Saving Our
Selves” (S.O.S.), an organization working in the
Gulf Coast on behalf of those victimized and im-
pacted by the social, economic and physical devas-
tation of Hurricane Katrina.
Rev. Lee is known throughout the community for
creativity in preaching, teaching and worship. His
ministry brings unparalleled energy to the Wash-
ington, D.C. metropolitan area, the nation and the
world because his message and persona demystify
the plan of salvation and bring renewed hope to
doubters, the unchurched and a volatile generation
of disenchanted young people. In October 2004,
Rev. Lee used his leadership role in ministry at
Ebenezer to bring two “crew” leaders to the table
to sign a “Treaty for Peace,” pledging to stop the
violence in Prince Georges County, Maryland. As
a part of his continued work in creating innovative
ministry, Rev. Lee has been involved in Strip Club
Outreach, and as a result, many souls have been
won to the Kingdom of God.
Rev. Lee holds a Bachelor of Science degree from
the University of Maryland at College Park. Upon
completion of his theological studies at the Howard
University School of Divinity in Washington, D.C.
and the Union Theological Seminary in New York
City, Rev. Lee earned a Masters of Divinity degree
from Union Theological Seminary.
Rev. Lee has received numerous awards and ci-
tations, including recognition from the Coalition
of Concerned Black Christian Men, the National
Association of Negro Business and Professional
Women’s Clubs, the Bergen County Branch of the
N.A.A.C.P. as well as a resolution from the New
Jersey General Assembly.
Rev. Lee is the proud son of Mr. Orlando W.E.
Lee and Rev. Nancy T. Lee.

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE
the word “steward”
E
veryone who would be Christian is called to be a Steward.
The word “Steward” is a strange word with a fascinating story
behind it. It is an important word that we need to know. A
steward in the New Testament is a hired person, servant or manager
whom the master trusts to run his household.
Jesus commented how a servant does not know what his master
does, but a steward does know about the master’s affairs. There is a
close trusted relationship between a steward and his master. However,
Jesus taught that our relationship with God is even closer. We are
children of God. We are not hired servants, but sons and daughters
making decisions in partnership with God. Have you ever discussed
important decisions within your family, such as the purchase of a new
car, where to go on a family vacation, or whether the family should
consider moving to a new town in order for the mother or father to ac-
cept a new job? The open discussion that takes place within the family
circle at times like these is essential in order to make the best possible
decision in the best interest of everyone concerned.
As children of God and as members of God’s family, we can also
help make important decisions with our Heavenly Father, within the
larger family circle – God’s people of the world. In this sense, we are
co-workers with God. He remains God and we remain his people; we
are in no sense God’s equal. Yet God calls us to share in the life and
activities of His kingdom as followers of Jesus Christ.
Your Friends in Service,
The Stewardship Ministry
