Verse I
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.
Chorus
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.
Verse II
Perfect submission, perfect delight!
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight,
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

I’ve seen the lightning fashing
And heard the thunder roll
I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing,
Trying to conquer my soul
I’ve heard the voice of Jesus
Telling me still to fght on
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.
Chorus
No, never alone, no never alone
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.
No, never alone, no never alone
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

The world’s ferce winds are blowing,

My Savior stands between
He stands to shield me from danger
When all my friends are gone,
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone

My Savior helps me carry

Though all around me is darkness
And earthly joys are fown

Verse IV
He died on Calv’ry’s mountain
For me they pierced His side
For me He opened that fountain
The crimson, cleansing tide
For me, He’s waiting in glory
Upon His heavenly throne
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone

25
After forty days of scouting out the land, they
returned home.
26
They presented themselves
before Moses and Aaron and the whole
congregation of the People of Israel in the
Wilderness of Paran at Kadesh. They reported
to the whole congregation and showed them
the fruit of the land.
27
Then they told the story
of their trip:
28
The only thing is that the people
who live there are ferce, their cities are huge
and well fortifed. Worse yet, we saw
descendants of the giant Anak.
29
Amalekites are
spread out in the Negev; Hittites, Jebusites, and
Amorites hold the hill country; and the
Canaanites are established on the Mediterranean
Sea and along the Jordan.”
30
Caleb interrupted,
called for silence before Moses and said, “Let’s
go up and take the land - now. We can do it.”
31
But the others said, “We can’t attack those
people; they’re way stronger than we are.”

The whole community was in an uproar,
wailing all night long.

All the People of Israel
grumbled against Moses and Aaron. The entire

After this there was a festival of the Jews, and
Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2
Now in Jerusalem
by the Sheep Gate there is a pool, called in
Hebrew Beth-zatha, which has fve porticoes.
3
In these lay many invalids blind, lame, and
paralyzed.
5
One man was there who had been ill
for thirty-eight years.
6
When Jesus saw him lying
there and knew that he had been there a long
time, he said to him, “Do you want to be made
well?”
7
The sick man answered him, “Sir, I have
no one to put me into the pool when the water is
stirred up; and while I am making my way,
someone else steps down ahead of me.”
8
Jesus
said to him, “Stand up, take your mat and walk.”
9
At once the man was made well, and he took up
his mat and began to walk. Now that day was a
sabbath.
10
So the Jews said to the man who had
been cured, “It is the sabbath; it is not lawful for
you to carry your mat.”
11
But he answered them,
“The man who made me well said to me, “Take
up your mat and walk.’

12
They asked him, “Who is the man who said
to you, “Take it up and walk’?”
13
Now the man
who had been healed did not know who it was,
for Jesus had disappeared in the crowd that was
there.
14
Later Jesus found him in the temple and
said to him, “See, you have been made well! Do
not sin any more, so that nothing worse happens
to you.”
15
The man went away and told the Jews
that it was Jesus who had made him well.
16
Therefore the Jews started persecuting Jesus,
because he was doing such things on the sabbath.

Egypt? Or in this wilderness?
3
Why has God
brought us to this country to kill us? Our wives
and children are about to become plunder. Why
don’t we just head back to Egypt? And right
now!”

Soon they were all saying it to one

to Egypt.”

Moses and Aaron fell on their faces
in front of the entire community, gathered in

Joshua son of Nun and
Caleb son of Jephunneh, members of the
scouting party, ripped their clothes

and
addressed the assembled People of Israel: “The
land we walked through and scouted out is a very
good land — very good indeed.

If God is
pleased with us, he will lead us into that land, a
land that fows, as they say, with milk and honey.
And he’ll give it to us.

S
hortly after I had been serving as Pastor of
Trinity United Church of Christ (around
seven years or so), back in 1979, the church
had grown to the point that we could afford offer-
ing its Pastor a sabbatical leave. However, I never
took the sabbatical I was offered.
In thirty-fve and a half years, I have never taken
a sabbatical leave. For members of our congregation
who do not know what a sabbatical leave is, it is a
time when a person is allowed to be away from their
job to think, to refect, to study, to rest and to renew
their spiritual “batteries.”
The word “sabbatical” comes from the Jewish no-
tion of Sabbath or “rest.” I am fnally going to take
a sabbatical leave!
Our good friend and brother, Reverend Dr. James
A. Forbes, has given me the model for what I am about
to do. Reverend Frank Thomas used to take his sab-
baticals faithfully, but Jim Forbes waited until the end
of his pastorate to take a few months off to think, to
write, to plan, to study and to pray. That is what I will
be doing come next March (2008).
Rather than have a thirty-sixth year anniversary
celebration as Pastor of Trinity Church on the frst
Sunday in March, and then turn around and have
a retirement celebration at the end of May or the
beginning of June in 2008, I am going to combine
my thirty-sixth anniversary and my retirement (if the
Lord says the same!).
My retirement celebration will begin on the fourth
Sunday in February and run with nightly services up
through the following Friday night. That means there
will be services from Sunday, February 24, 2008 until
Friday night, February 29, 2008.
On Saturday, March 1st, there will be some sort
of banquet to which the entire congregation will be
invited. On Sunday, March 2nd, my thirty-six years of
service will be celebrated at all three services.
The frst two services will be held here at Trinity
Church. The evening service will be held at Christ
Universal Temple, which seats four-thousand persons.
I will then be on sabbatical leave through May 31st,
when I offcially retire.
I have promised to walk with and work with
our Pastor, Reverend Otis Moss III, for two years.
I made that promise to him at the end of 2005.
I announced my plans to the congregation to work
with my pastor at the Annual Meeting in Janu-
ary 2006. I began working with Pastor Moss on
June 1, 2006 and my two-year promise extends
through May 31, 2008.
I will continue to be with him, to walk with him, to
work with him and to help him in every way possible.
I will no longer be physically present at the church,
however. I will fnally be on my sabbatical! My last of-
fcial day as senior pastor will be May 31, 2008, but I
will no longer be around after March 2, 2008.
I am asking for your prayers during this period of
“rest.” I am asking for your prayers during this pe-
riod of discernment and I am asking for your prayers
as I prepare to do whatever God has assigned for me
to do next in my ministry.
Sincerely and respectfully yours,
My SAbbATiCAl leAVe!

n June, nearly 10,000 United Church of Christ
members and clergy gathered for General
Synod, where the Collegium’s pastoral letter
on the Iraq war was read to an audience united in
its opposition to fve years of bloodshed. I read it to
the congregation on the frst Sunday in July.
Our videostream “members” asked us to put
it in the bulletin so they could download it. We
printed it and thousands of people have since
signed the petition supporting this statement, and
our voice grows louder.
Our goal is to collect 100,000 signatures be-
tween now and October, when members of the
UCC Collegium will travel to Washington, DC,
to present the petition and statement to leaders in
Congress and members of the Administration.
It is vital to keep the public pressure on Con-
gress and the Administration calling for an end
to the war in Iraq and a new policy path toward
global peace and security. We must raise a critical
mass of voices for a peace.
Help us keep up the momentum by asking your
friends and family to sign the petition. During the
month of August, members of Congress adjourn for
summer recess to spend time campaigning in their
districts. It is a great opportunity to collect signa-
tures for the petition by attending town hall meet-
ings, candidate forums and campaign appearances,
and circulating a copy of the petition for signatures.
This campaign is a strong call for an end to
violence and the beginning of a lasting peace in
the Middle East. The more people you can get
involved, the more impact we can have.
Ask your friends, family and community mem-
bers to “join protest to prayer.” Encourage them
to read and lend their endorsement to the Pastoral
Letter on the Iraq War by offering their names
online at http://ga3.org/campaign/iraq_petition
Handwritten signatures should include name,
city/state, local church name, and an e-mail ad-
dress if available. Please mail them to:

A
n essential element required for people
fghting for justice is that we must know
who we are personally, and as a people.
Dr. Asa Hilliard dedicated his life to unmasking
the hidden histories of African people to those
who were the victims of the colonization of
education. In his own words, from an article
entitled, The Education of African People,
Dr. Hilliard, in collaboration with Luisa Martin,
states:
“African people all over the world are in
a life and death struggle for survival, but
many are not conscious of it. The education
and socialization processes to which we
are exposed rarely help us to gain a holistic
perspective of what is happening to us.
We do not know who we are. We do not
know from whence we have come. We do
not know where we are going…It is no
accident that we are alienated from and
ignorant of our cultural heritage, its vitality,
and its utility for us now. Our alienation
and ignorance is the product of calculating
oppressors who enslaved, colonized,
segregated, and created ideologies of white
supremacy.”
As a writer, he has left a library of books
and articles on African history and heritage,
as well as methods of achieving excellence in
African children. As an advocate, he was called
upon by school districts, public, and private
policy organizations, and government agencies
to advise and consult on training programs
for African children. He was also called upon
as an expert witness in many legal matters,
including a case that resulted in the elimination
of standardized testing as the sole criterion in
determining college admissions.
Dr. Hilliard fought for justice by seeking the
liberation of minds which had been held down
by white supremacy for too long. The world is
a better place because God gifted us with Asa
Hilliard for 73 years. Rest well Baba Baffour.

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE
STORIeS OF ST. FRAnCIS
St. Francis was a remarkable man who lived from 1182 A.D. to
1226 A.D., and is renowned for his love of animals. It is believed that
once he preached a sermon to a feld of sparrows.
He told the birds how lucky they were that God had made them to
fy and that they always had feathers for clothing and that God had given
them beautiful rivers and streams for water, tall trees in which to nest,
and all varieties of food. St. Francis told the birds that because of God’s
goodness, they should be grateful every day and sing their praises to God
constantly. Legend says that while St. Francis was delivering this power-
ful message to the sparrows, they all sat quietly, listening, and not one
few away.
Ask yourself these questions: If St. Francis were preaching to us, how
would he say that God has blessed us? The birds sing in gratitude. What
can we do to show our gratitude to God for our many blessings?
