GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS
Verse I
Great is Thy faithfulness,
O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not,
Thy compassions, they fail not,
As Thou has been Thou for ever wilt be.
Refrain
Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided,
Great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto me!
Verse II
Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness,
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
(Repeat Refrain)
Verse III
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
(Repeat Refrain)
11:00 a.m.
HOLD TO GOD’S
UNCHANGING HAND
Verse I
Time is flled with swift transition.
Naught of earth unmoved can stand.
Build your hopes on things eternal.
Hold to God’s unchanging hand.
Chorus
Hold to His hand, God’s unchanging hand.
Hold to His hand, God’s unchanging hand.
Build your hopes on things eternal.
Hold to God’s unchanging hand.
Verse II
Trust in Him who will not leave you.
Whatsoever years may bring.
If by earthly friends forsaken,
Still more closely to Him cling.
(Repeat chorus)
Verse III
Covet not this world’s vain riches
That so rapidly decay.
Seek to gain the heav’nly treasures.
They will never pass away.
(Repeat chorus)
Verse IV
When your journey is completed,
If to God you have been true,
Fair and bright the home in Glory
Your enraptured soul will view.

MARk 5:35–42 (NRSV)
35
While he was still speaking, some people came
from the leader’s house to say, “Your daughter
is dead. Why trouble the teacher any further?”
36
But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to
the leader of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only
believe.”
37
He allowed no one to follow him
except Peter, James, and John, the brother of
James.
38
When they came to the house of the
leader of the synagogue, he saw a commotion,
people weeping and wailing loudly.
39
When he
had entered, he said to them, “Why do you
make a commotion and weep? The child is not
dead but sleeping.”
40
And they laughed at him.
Then he put them all outside, and took the
child’s father and mother and those who were
with him, and went in where the child was.
41
He took her by the hand and said to her,
“Talitha cum,” which means, “Little girl, get
up!”
42
And immediately the girl got up and
began to walk about (she was twelve years of
age). At this they were overcome with
amazement.

MARk 2:1–12 (NIV)
1
A few days later, when Jesus again entered
Capernaum, the people heard that he had come
home.
2
So many gathered that there was no
room left, not even outside the door, and he
preached the word to them.
3
Some men came,
bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of
them.
4
Since they could not get him to Jesus
because of the crowd, they made an opening in
the roof above Jesus and, after digging through
it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying
on.
5
When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the
paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”
6
Now
some teachers of the law were sitting there,
thinking to themselves,
7
“Why does this fellow
talk like that? He’s blaspheming! Who can
forgive sins but God alone?”
8
Immediately Jesus
knew in his spirit that this was what they were
thinking in their hearts, and he said to them,
“Why are you thinking these things?
9
Which is
easier: to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are
forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and
walk’?
10
But that you may know that the Son of
Man has authority on earth to forgive sins . . . .”
He said to the paralytic,
11
”I tell you, get up,
take your mat and go home.”
12
He got up, took
his mat and walked out in full view of them all.
This amazed everyone and they praised God,
saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”

MATTHEW 4:1–11 (NIV)
1
Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert
to be tempted by the devil.
2
After fasting forty
days and forty nights, he was hungry.
3
The
tempter came to him and said, “If you are the
Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”
4
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live
on bread alone, but on every word that comes
from the mouth of God.’”
5
Then the devil took
him to the holy city and had him stand on the
highest point of the temple.
6
“If you are the Son
of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is
written: “’He will command his angels
concerning you, and they will lift you up in their
hands, so that you will not strike your foot
against a stone.’”
7
Jesus answered him, “It is also
written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the
test.’”
8
Again, the devil took him to a very high
mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of
the world and their splendor.
9
“All this I will give
you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship
me.”
10
Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan!
For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God,
and serve him only.’”
11
Then the devil left him,
and angels came and attended him.
CONfessiON
Of siNs
A
lmighty and Most Merciful Father,
we come before You, acknowledging
our sins, our shortcomings, and our
breaking of our Covenant with You.
Not only have we done things we ought not to
have done, said things we ought not to have said,
left undone so many things we ought to have done
and been silent when we should have witnessed for
You.
Not only are we guilty of that, O Lord; but we
have also closed our eyes and pretended not to
see the injustices, the racism and the evil which
pervade our everyday lives.
We have shut our ears and pretended not to
hear the cries for liberation which come from the
lips, lives and hearts of the oppressed — even our
own Black brothers and sisters!
Forgive us, O Lord, renew our courage and
faith, and keep us ever mindful of Thy great
sacrifce. Hear us, we beseech Thee, as we come
to You in love and worship giving Your name the
praise forevermore.
===========
TO ALL OUR VISITORS … To all who
mourn and need comforting … To all who are
friendless and want friendship … To all who are
oppressed and need liberation; and to whosoever
will come, Trinity opens its doors. Thank you for
coming and may God bless you.

Dear Trinity Member,
For most of the past year, residents of Jena, Loui-
siana have suffered under racial unrest that has
manifested in blatant injustices against young
black men. We encourage you to join forces with
those who oppose the hate crimes and conditions
that are being perpetrated in Jena.
BACkGROUND
On the grounds of the Jena, Louisiana high
school, there is a single tree. Its shade has been
generally reserved for use by white students. In
September of last year, a black student asked per-
mission from school authorities to sit under the
tree, and did so.
By the next morning, three nooses in school
colors were hung from its branches.Although
the school’s principal found three white students
responsible for hanging these nooses and rec-
ommended their expulsion, the superintendent
overruled the principal and gave them a three
day suspension. The students were never charged
with a crime.
Since the hanging of the nooses, a number
of racial confrontations have ensued:
On November 30, 2006, the main academic •
building of Jena High was burned down.
On December 1, a Black student who at- •
tended a white party was beaten (for which a
white man was later arrested and charged with
simple battery).
On December 2, a young white man threatened •
a group of young black men with a shotgun at
a convenience store (for which the Black men
who took the shotgun away from the white
man were later arrested, but no charges were
fled against the white man).
Court testimony documents that the District •
Attorney, accompanied by law enforcement
offcers, addressed a Jena school assembly and
threatened protesting black students, saying
that if they did not stop the fuss over the “in-
nocent prank — I can take away your lives with
a stroke of my pen.”
On December 4, a white student who alleg- •
edly made racial taunts and supported the
students who hung the nooses was knocked
down, punched and kicked by black students
(for which the white student was treated and
released, and six black students were charged
with felonies and assessed high bail.)
The six young men were charged with
attempted second degree murder. They were all
expelled from school. The six charged were Rob-
ert Bailey, Jr. (17 years old, bail set at $138,000);
Theo Shaw (17, bail at $130,000); Bryant Purvis
(17, bail at $70,000); Carwin Jones (18, bail at
$100,000); Mychal Bell (16 at arrest, charged
Communion Sunday, August 5, 2007 9 © Sermons copyrighted by Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.
pAsTOr’s pAGe
as an adult, bail at $90,000); and an unidentifed
minor.
Mychal Bell was the frst to be tried. He was con-
victed this month of two felonies: aggravated bat-
tery and conspiracy to commit aggravated battery.
Aggravated battery requires the use of a weapon;
in this case, Mr. Bell’s tennis shoe was considered
the weapon. He was convicted by an all-white jury;
there were no black citizens in the jury pool of 150.
He will be sentenced at the end of this month, and
faces up to 22 years in prison.
On a historical note, Jena is the location of a
Juvenile Correctional Center for Youth that was
forced to close in 2000, two years after it opened,
because of widespread racism and brutality includ-
ing guards choking a juvenile after he met with
an attorney, guards paying inmates to fght one
another, and guards laughing at juveniles who at-
tempted to commit suicide.
Our denomination has long stood for justice
and racial equity. We urge you to stand again to
address these issues, and to help protect the young
men who are being prosecuted in Jena.
Write Governor Blanco to ask that the convic-
tion of Mychal Bell be commuted or that he be
pardoned.

O
n June 29, the Rev. Dr. Linda E.
Thomas, professor of theology and
anthropology at the Lutheran School
of Theology at Chicago, received the Daughter
of Thunder Trailblazer Award from the Chicago
Chapter of the National Consortium of Black
Women in Ministry (NCBWIM).
In presenting the award, Rev. Vanessa Lovelace,
of the Chicago Chapter of NCBWIM said, “Dr.
Thomas is…considered a “public intellectual” or
“activist scholar”…one who is intentional about us-
ing her intellect to work, study, refect, and speculate
on or ask questions in the public sphere…(she) works
to make her scholarship accessible and relevant to the
average person. She does this when she is teaching,
speaking, and preaching in the academy, in lecture
halls, and in the church, including her home church,
Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago where
she is the Theologian-in-Residence.”
The award salutes Thomas’ “pioneering and
trailblazing ministry accomplishments over the
years…paving the way for other women in ministry
to have opportunities to share the gifts that our
God has endowed them with…you have been on
the forefront in the academy, church, and commu-
nity — remaining steadfast and unmovable, always
abounding in the work of the Lord knowing that
your labor is not in vain.”
Linda E. Thomas joined the LSTC faculty in
2000. Her work is rooted in a Womanist perspec-
tive. Thomas earned a master of divinity degree
from Union Theological Seminary in New York
City and a Ph.D. in cultural and social anthropology
from the American University, Washington, D.C.
Thomas has taught in the areas of anthropology and
religion, world cultures and spiritual formation at
Iliff School of Theology, Denver University, Wesley
Theological Seminary and Garrett Theological
Seminary. At Garrett, Thomas directed the Center
of the Church and the Black Experience. She has
done extensive research in the area of theology and
community in South Africa, Peru, Cuba and Russia.
Thomas is the author of Under the Canopy:
Ritual Process and Spiritual Resilience in South
Africa, and the editor of Living Stones in the
Household of God: The Legacy and Future of Black
Theology. In 2005, she and Dr. Dwight N. Hopkins
organized and led the groundbreaking confer-
ence “Black Theology and Womanist Theology in
Dialogue: Which Way Forward for the Church and
the Academy?” which brought together leading
theologians and clergy.
The National Consortium of Black Women in Ministry was
founded in February 2005 by the Rev. Carla Howlett and
other female ministers to meet the unique needs of Black wom-
en in ministry. By cultivating communities of Black women
in ministry across the United States, NCBWIM supports and
draws on the resources of those women to work together on issues
affecting the well-being of black women. For more information
about NCBWIM, please visit ncbwim.org.
The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago prepares women
and men to proclaim the good news of God’s love in Jesus
Christ to all people. Its approximately 350 students come from
all parts of the United States and from around the world
to study in one of fve advanced degree programs. Gradu-
ates become pastors, other church leaders, and university and
seminary professors. LSTC is a seminary of the Evangelical Lu-
theran Church in America and a member of the Association of
Chicago Theological Schools, allowing students to cross-register
among the 12 member seminaries and drawing on a wealth of
ecumenical resources. To learn more about the Lutheran School

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.
On that day, the Chicago Chapter of the National Action Network will gather at 10:15 a.m. at the
Wrigley Plaza located in Millennium Park (corner of Michigan and Randolph), and will march from
there to the designated location of the Day of Decency protest.
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 recordings. Because
no other ethnic group is subjected to denigration for proft by the music industry, the Decency Initia-
tive 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 dis-
tribute this offensive music within our communities. 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, call 773-319-1297 or send an e-mail to the Chicago Chapter of the National
Action Network at NAN_Chgo@yahoo.com, or visit www.nationalactionnetwork.net.

O
ur member, Lonnie Rashid Lynn (internationally known as COMMON), has released a new
CD, “Finding Forever.” COMMON’s use of the Hip Hop genre is in the socially conscious
camp of music that was the original “rap” which Michael Eric Dyson writes about and
Rev. Otis Moss preaches about. COMMON’s music does not denigrate our black queens, nor call them
out of their names!

When I talked with COMMON on the day before he went on Oprah, I reminded him that there
are some preachers who are pimps and into bling-bling, distorting the Word of God to rip off their
members, listeners and viewers; but he did not grow up in a church with that kind of preacher, so he
knew that the negative preachers were not the only preachers preaching today.
I reminded him that there are some teachers who do not care about their black, poor and disadvan-
taged students. They are only in the teaching profession for their paycheck. He knew, however, that
his mother was a teacher and that she was never that kind of teacher; so he also knew that the bad
teachers were not the only teachers in the profession today.
I ultimately reminded him that there are some rappers and some members of the Hip Hop communi-
ty who use language which calls his mother, my wife and my daughters names he did not approve of;
but they were not the only rappers. He was not one of those and neither was Kanye West. “Finding
Forever” is an example of the positive socially conscious rap he and I talked about that day. “Black
Maybe” is a must (Cut #8) on his new CD!
When COMMON says in “Black Maybe” that to be a person of color means that “Because you are
that color you endure obstacles and opposition and not all the time from other nationalities; some-
times it’s from your own kind, or maybe even from your own mind. You get judged. You get laughed
at. You get looked at wrong. You get cited for not being strong. The struggle of just being you.
The struggle of just being us! Black maybe,” that is vintage COMMON. His last line on the CD
(from “Forever Begins”) is vintage Hip-Hop theology. COMMON says, “God’s memory is forever!”

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE
DO YOU kNOW THIS RIDDLE?
H
ave you ever heard the riddle, “What gets wetter the more it
dries?” At frst, it doesn’t seem to make any sense. How can
something become wetter if it’s drying? However, the answer
makes it clear: A towel.
In the same way, we could ask the riddle, “What has more, the more it
gives?” If you know the answer to the frst one, you may be able to guess
that this answer is “A Christian steward.”
But how? There are actually many possibilities. For example, a person
who plays the violin in the church talent show to help raise funds can also
enjoy the other performers. A person who helps paint the church gains
fellowship with those who work with him/her.
By giving time, talent and treasure, in the long run, a good steward
actually receives more. Christ makes this clear in His parable of the three
stewards. Those who invested the talents entrusted to them, were given
more.

speCiAl ANNOUNCeMeNTs
We will provide book bags and school supplies for youth who would
not otherwise be able to purchase them. Church In Society is asking
the Trinity Church Family to donate new book bags flled with school
supplies. Boxes will be available in the Atrium, following each worship
service through August 22nd. Our goal is to distribute 250 book bags.
During this period, Church in Society members will also be on
hand to take the names of students requesting book bags.
(Although everyone would like a book bag, we ask that you sign up only if there
is a fnancial need.)
