Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin,
Each vict’ry will help you, some other to win;
Fight valiantly onward, evil passions subdue;
Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through.
Chorus
Ask the Savior to help you,
Comfort, strengthen and keep you,
He is willing to aid you,

Shun evil companions, bad language disdain,
God’s name hold in rev’rence, nor take it in vain,
Be thoughtful and earnest, kindhearted and true,
Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through.

For we have heard how the Lord dried
up the water of the Red Sea before you when
you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the
two kings of the Amorites that were beyond the
Jordan, to Sihon and Og, whom you utterly
destroyed.
11
As soon as we heard it, our hearts
melted, and there was no courage left in any of
us because of you. The Lord your God is indeed
God in heaven above and on earth below.
12
Now then, since I have dealt kindly with you,
swear to me by the Lord that you in turn will
deal kindly with my family. Give me a sign of
good faith
13
that you will spare my father and
mother, my brothers and sisters, and all who
belong to them, and deliver our lives from
death.”

I do not understand my own actions. For I do

16
Now if I do what I do not want, I agree
that the law is good.
17
But in fact it is no longer
I that do it, but sin that dwells within me.
18
For
I know that nothing good dwells within me, that

cannot do it.

For I do not do the good I want,

Then Joshua son of Nun sent two men secretly
from Shittim as spies, saying, “Go, view the land,
especially Jericho.” So they went, and entered
the house of a prostitute whose name was Rahab,
and spent the night there.
2
The king of Jericho
was told, “Some Israelites have come here
tonight to search out the land.”
3
Then the king
of Jericho sent orders to Rahab, “Bring out the
men who have come to you, who entered your
house, for they have come only to search out the
whole land.”
4
But the woman took the two men
and hid them. Then she said, “True, the men
came to me, but I did not know where they
came from.

And when it was time to close the
gate at dark, the men went out. Where the men
went I do not know. Pursue them quickly, for
you can overtake them.”

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.

A Labor Day Reading Based on James 1
Leader: As we gather together this Labor Day
weekend, we recognize that we serve a God who
has set forth guidelines for treatment of workers
and immigrants. Living a life acceptable to God
requires good relationships with God and with
our neighbors.
People: Every generous act of giving, with
every perfect gift, is from above. (vs. 17).
Leader: You call us to treat our neighbors as we
want to be treated ourselves.
People: We want to be doers of the word, and
not merely hearers who deceive themselves.
(vs. 22).
Leader: We know that You want all workers to be
treated with respect and dignity.
People: We want wages and benefts that can raise
our own families and so we want it for others as
well.
Leader: For if any are hearers of the word and not
doers, they are like those who look at themselves
in a mirror; (vs. 23).
People: For they look at themselves and, on
going away, immediately forget what they were
like. (vs. 24)
Leader: But those who look into the perfect law, the
law of liberty, and persevere,
Communion Sunday, September 2, 2007 8 © Sermons copyrighted by Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.
People: Being not hearers who forget but doers who
act — they will be blessed in their doing. (vs. 25).
Leader: When we hear about janitors seeking
better wages and benefts for their families,
People: Help us be doers who act. Help us seek
justice for janitors.
Leader: When we hear about health care workers
and home care workers who can’t afford health
care for their own families,
People: Help us be doers who act. Help us seek
justice for health care and home care workers.
Leader: When we hear about retail workers who
can only work part-time so they are excluded from
benefts,
People: Help us be doers who act. Help us seek
justice for retail workers.
Leader: When we hear about farmworkers working
long hours for low pay, sleeping in cramped
housing or on the ground,
People: Help us be doers who act. Help us seek
justice for farmworkers.
Leader: When we think about those whom we or
people we know employ to watch our children,
People: Help us be doers who act. Help us seek
justice for child care workers.
Leader: When we hear about and see the
immigrants in our nation who often toil in the
hardest jobs, pay taxes, and yet often have no path
to become citizens,
People: Help us be doers who act. Help us seek
justice for immigrant workers.
Leader: When we hear of loyal employees who
have lost their jobs due to no fault of their own,
People: Help us be doers who act. Help us seek
justice for laid off and unemployed workers.
Leader: We know that many of our clothes and
children’s toys are made in sweatshops. Too often
“cheap” becomes more important than “just.”
People: Help us be doers who act. Help us seek
justice for sweatshop workers.
Leader: Help us to remember that work is a gift of
God and that each worker is created in the image
of God.
People: Oh God who created each one of us,
who allows us to work, we give thanks for this
Labor Day. We ask You to be with all those
who work and are not paid wages to sustain
their families. We ask Your special blessing on
immigrant workers and those looking for work.
Forgive us when we purchase goods made
in sweatshops. Help us to seek justice for all
workers. Help us be doers who act. Amen.

Dear Trinity Member,
Support the Smithfeld Workers in Tarheel, NC
O
ne of the most important worker struggles in
the country at this time is taking place at the
Smithfeld Packing Company in Tar Heel, North
Carolina. In this slaughterhouse, the largest in
the world, some 5,500 workers, primarily African
Americans and Latinos, process 32,000 hogs a day.
The workers are experiencing excessively high
injury rates, provocations by management to stir
up racial hostility, and extreme interference with
their efforts to form a union. The courts have
found the company illegally assaulted, arrested,
harassed, intimidated, coerced, threatened,
fred, suspended, disciplined, and spied upon
employees engaged in legal union organizing
activities.
Support the Workers
The shareholders of Smithfeld Foods, Inc.,
the parent company of the Smithfeld Packing
Company, will meet on August 29. You can
support these workers by signing a petition
urging the company to allow workers to choose
whether to form a union without interference.
Please add your name to this statement today.
Last month in Hartford, Connecticut, the
UCC General Synod adopted a Resolution
supporting the workers at the Smithfeld Packing
Company and urging UCC members to become
informed about their struggle and to advocate
for justice there.
For more information about conditions in
the plant, check out “The Pork is Packed with
Oppression” from Justice and Witness Ministries.
Here are some additional ways to support the
workers:
Don’t buy pork that was processed at the •
Tar Heel, NC, plant. Learn how to avoid
these products by visiting the United Food
and Commercial Workers Union site,
Justice at Smithfeld.
Tell your local supermarket not to sell pork •
products from the Tar Heel, NC, plant.
(These products are sold under a variety of
brand names.) Learn what to look for and
how to take action by visiting How to Help
on the Justice at Smithfeld site.
Send a letter urging Smithfeld to treat •
workers in the Tar Heel, NC, plant with
fairness and dignity, and allow them to
freely determine whether to form a union.
Write to Joseph Luter III, Chairman,
Smithfeld Foods, Inc., 200 Commerce St.,
Smithfeld, VA 23430.
For more information, or to arrange a visit to the
worker support center in North Carolina, contact
Edie Rasell, Minister for Workplace Justice, Justice and
Witness Ministries, UCC, at raselle@ucc.org or

W
hen we send our children out into the
world of work, we assume that if they
can get their foot in the door and
get a job, then they can move up the ladder and
take care of themselves and their families. The
job may not be perfect, but they will be able to
make ends meet and have time to be both good
workers and good parents.
The reality, however, is that millions of jobs
in the United States are not these kinds of jobs.
Nationwide, about one-third of jobs are low
wage, paying less than two-thirds of the male
median wage, and, more often than not, don’t
come with health insurance, paid time off, or
retirement plans. Many workers in low-wage jobs
do not even know what their work schedule is
for next week, let alone what they’ll do if they
need a sick day.
Low-wage workers and their families are often
excluded from what most of us would consider
normal activities, such as taking a paid sick day
if their child is sick. This is a moral outrage. In
a nation where the majority of children do not
have a stay-at-home parent, how should families
cope when a child gets the fu? Leave the child at
daycare and get all the other children sick? Risk
their jobs by missing a day of work? Every day in
the world’s richest nation, parents are forced to
choose between being a good parent and being
at their job.
One of the key characteristics of low-wage
jobs is that they aren’t subject to the same kinds
of basic labor standards as other jobs. High-
wage jobs often provide the kinds of benefts
that workers with families need, such as the
fexibility to take an hour to take the children
to the dentist and then make it up later, or paid
time off for maternity and paternity leave. But
those in low-wage jobs, who are also in need of
family-friendly policies, simply don’t get these
kinds of perks.
Public benefts, such as Medicaid and child
care subsidies, are supposed to fll the gap for
workers who do not get on-the-job benefts. Yet
we fnd that in states across the country, not only
do benefts phase out long before you’re likely
to get employer-based benefts, but few (often
less than half) of those eligible actually receive
benefts.
Most work support programs, including
child care subsidies and Medicaid, focus on the
poorest among us or those without employment.
This leaves millions of working families — who
are not what the government would defne as
poor, but who don’t earn enough to meet their
basic needs and don’t get on-the-job benefts —
struggling to make ends meet.
We need to think long and hard about what
kind of economy we want to create for the
next generation of workers. What are the basic
WORkiNG FAMiLY VALuES
by Heather Bousley
Communion Sunday, September 2, 2007 11 © Sermons copyrighted by Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.
standards that should be common to all jobs,
not just the best jobs? At the very least, the
United States should follow the lead of other
advanced economies and provide paid time
off for workers who are ill, have an ill family
member, or need time to care for a new child.
We should also ensure that safe, affordable, and
enriching child care is available to every parent.
We need to incorporate into our policymaking
the recognition that those working in low-wage
jobs may be unable to make ends meet and that
their employers are not flling in the gaps with
benefts.
It’s not just the very poor who need our
attention. As members of the middle class
have been squeezed, more and more of us are
struggling to maintain our standard of living.
The past 30 years have brought rising wage
and income inequality and an increase in the
low-wage, no-beneft jobs. If we want to see
an economy that works for everyone, then we
— and our representatives in Washington —
must work for labor standards that support all
workers.

Center for Economic and Policy Research in

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE
FOR BODY AnD SPiRiT
W
inston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get; we make
a life by what we give.”
You may have read or heard that statement before. Now, there is
scientifc evidence that it is verifably true. Dr. Abraham Brunk, a re-
searcher and teacher in the Netherlands, has found that givers are both
emotionally and physically better ft than those who are less thoughtful
and generous.
Givers, Dr. Brunk’s study reveals, take 50% fewer sick days than those
whose giving is more restricted. Furthermore, givers have a higher level
of self-esteem and also have lower blood pressure, due to the release of
a hormone called oxytocin in givers’ bodies.
In short, givers have healthier bodies and spirits than those whose
lives are defned by what they do for themselves. “Gimme people” seem
to be hurting both their bodies and their spirits, by acting mostly on
behalf of themselves.
It seems obvious that God made us for giving and serving. Reaching
out to others as members of God’s church will enable us to fnd the joy
God intends for us to have. Exercising good and steadfast stewardship
of our time, talent and possessions as servants of the Lord not only helps
God’s work and humanity, it also keeps our bodies and spirits healthier
and more joyous.
