For ‘In him we live and move
and have our being’; as even some of your own
poets have said, ‘For we too are his offspring.’
29
Since we are God’s offspring, we ought not to
think that the deity is like gold, or silver, or
stone, an image formed by the art and
imagination of mortals.
30
While God has
overlooked the times of human ignorance, now
he commands all people everywhere to repent,
31
because he has fxed a day on which he will
have the world judged in righteousness by a
man whom he has appointed, and of this he has
given assurance to all by raising him from the
dead.”

JUDGeS 7:1–21 (NIV)
1
Then Jerubbaal (that is, Gideon) and all the
troops that were with him rose early and
encamped beside the spring of Harod; and the
camp of Midian was north of them, below the
hill of Moreh, in the valley.
2
The Lord said to
Gideon, “The troops with you are too many for
me to give the Midianites into their hand. Israel
would only take the credit away from me,
saying, ‘My own hand has delivered me.’
3
Now
therefore proclaim this in the hearing of the
troops, ‘Whoever is fearful and trembling, let
him return home.’ “Thus Gideon sifted them
out; twenty-two thousand returned, and ten
thousand remained.
4
Then the Lord said to
Gideon, “The troops are still too many; take
them down to the water and I will sift them out
for you there. When I say, ‘This one shall go

For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is
seen is not hope. For who hopes for what is
seen?
25
But if we hope for what we do not see,
we wait for it with patience.
26
Likewise the Spirit
helps us in our weakness; for we do not know
how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit
intercedes with sighs too deep for words.
27
And
God, who searches the heart, knows what is the
mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes
for the saints according to the will of God.
ACTS 17:22–31 (NRSV)
22
Then Paul stood in front of the Areopagus and
said, “Athenians, I see how extremely religious
you are in every way.
23
For as I went through the
city and looked carefully at the objects of your
worship, I found among them an altar with the
inscription, ‘To an unknown god.’ What
therefore you worship as unknown, this I
proclaim to you.
24
The God who made the
world and everything in it, he who is Lord of
heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made
by human hands,
25
nor is he served by human
hands, as though he needed anything, since he
himself gives to all mortals life and breath and all
things.
26
From one ancestor he made all nations
to inhabit the whole earth, and he allotted the
times of their existence and the boundaries of the
places where they would live,
27
so that they
would search for God and perhaps grope for him

with you,’ he shall go with you; and when I say,
‘This one shall not go with you,’ he shall not
go.”
5
So he brought the troops down to the
water; and the Lord said to Gideon, “All those
who lap the water with their tongues, as a dog
laps, you shall put to one side; all those who
kneel down to drink, putting their hands to
their mouths, you shall put to the other side.”
6
The number of those that lapped was three
hundred; but all the rest of the troops knelt
down to drink water.
7
Then the Lord said to
Gideon, “With the three hundred that lapped
I will deliver you, and give the Midianites into
your hand. Let all the others go to their
homes.”
8
So he took the jars of the troops from
their hands, and their trumpets; and he sent all
the rest of Israel back to their own tents, but
retained the three hundred. The camp of
Midian was below him in the valley.
9
That same
night the Lord said to him, “Get up, attack the
camp; for I have given it into your hand.
10
But
if you fear to attack, go down to the camp with
your servant Purah;
11
and you shall hear what
they say, and afterward your hands shall be
strengthened to attack the camp.” Then he
went down with his servant Purah to the
outposts of the armed men that were in the
camp.
12
The Midianites and the Amalekites and
all the people of the east lay along the valley as
thick as locusts; and their camels were without
number, countless as the sand on the seashore.
13
When Gideon arrived, there was a man telling
a dream to his comrade; and he said, “I had a
dream, and in it a cake of barley bread tumbled
into the camp of Midian, and came to the tent,
and struck it so that it fell; it turned upside
down, and the tent collapsed.”
14
And his
comrade answered, “This is no other than the
sword of Gideon son of Joash, a man of Israel;
into his hand God has given Midian and all the
army.”
15
When Gideon heard the telling of the
dream and its interpretation, he worshiped; and
he returned to the camp of Israel, and said,
“Get up; for the Lord has given the army of
Midian into your hand.”
16
After he divided the
three hundred men into three companies, and
put trumpets into the hands of all of them, and
empty jars, with torches inside the jars,
17
he said
to them, “Look at me, and do the same; when I
come to the outskirts of the camp, do as I do.
18
When I blow the trumpet, I and all who are
with me, then you also blow the trumpets
around the whole camp, and shout, ‘For the
Lord and for Gideon!’”
19
So Gideon and the
hundred who were with him came to the
outskirts of the camp at the beginning of the
middle watch, when they had just set the watch;
and they blew the trumpets and smashed the
jars that were in their hands.
20
So the three
companies blew the trumpets and broke the
jars, holding in their left hands the torches, and
in their right hands the trumpets to blow; and
they cried, “A sword for the Lord and for
Gideon!”
21
Every man stood in his place all
around the camp, and all the men in camp ran;
they cried out and fed.

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.

pAsTOr’s pAGe
O
n a pleasant Sunday afternoon in
July 2000, members and pastors
belonging to local Palestinian
Evangelical congregations from the
Palestinian territories gathered at the Bethlehem
Hotel to celebrate the formation of their council.
An American woman who was present at the
meeting approached one of the pastors and asked
him if she could say a few words to the assembly…
When the lady took the microphone, I couldn’t
believe the words that came out of her mouth. She
professed to the Palestinian Evangelical Christians
assembled there that she had a word from the
Lord for them. ‘God,’ she said, ‘wanted them all
to leave Israel and go to other Arab countries.’
She added that they must leave to make room for
God’s chosen people, the Jews. She warned the
pastors and the audience that if they did not listen
to the instructions which God had given her, God
would pour his wrath on them. When her agenda
was recognized, one of the pastors came and
whisked her away from the pulpit, but not before
she served the whole assembly a mouthful of what
is known today as Christian Zionism.”
This story, related by Alex Awad, the Palestinian
pastor of the East Jerusalem Baptist Church,
poignantly reveals the extent to which some
Christian voices invalidate the concrete historical
realities of their Christian brothers and sisters
living under occupation. Such Christian Zionist
voices not only ignore the realities of dispossession
that have marked the experiences of both Christian
and Muslim Palestinians, past and present, but also
go so far as to justify violence, dispossession, and
discrimination perpetrated against Palestinians.
Stories like these reveal our need to be
constantly vigilant about how we read Scripture
and how we do theology. We need to ask basic
questions about our identities, the agendas that we
bring to the text, and about who benefts from our
reading and interpretation, so as to avoid doing
violence to others.
When we talk about Christians in Palestine-
Israel it is important to pay attention to our
language of who is “in” and who is “out.” As the
story above indicates, some people may not see our
Palestinian brothers and sisters as being “in.” From
one perspective, Palestinians, be they Christians
or Muslims, are usurpers who should leave the
land. A reading of Scripture that erases Palestinians
from the land is tantamount to a biblically-justifed
ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people.
Refecting biblically on these lines we draw, if
we take a look at the ministry of Jesus and the
witness of the early church we see that all people
are invited to become part of God’s household. In
the book of Ephesians, Gentiles are welcomed into
“one new humanity” (2:15), because Christ has
WHO IS ‘IN’ AND WHO IS ‘OUT’?
When we talk about Christians in Palestine-Israel it is important to
pay attention to our language of who is “in” and who is “out.”
For he is our peace; in his fesh he has made both groups into one and
has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us.—Ephesians 2:14

made peace between Jew and Gentile.
For Christians living in the United States, it is
sometimes diffcult to think about the church as
the new multi-ethnic, multi-racial people of God.
Many Christians have a hard time seeing and
relating to Christianity in the Arab world as living,
vibrant communities of faith with rich spiritual and
theological traditions. This may be partly due to our
lack of understanding about the shape of Christianity
in other parts of the world, and may also be partly
due to our often racist and ethnocentric notions of
what a Christian should look like.
Christianity in Palestine-Israel today is
experiencing what many describe as a crisis. This
crisis is not due to the growth of so-called Islamic
fundamentalism or the persecution of “believers”
by their Muslim neighbors, misrepresentations that
are unfortunately used to distract from the realities
of military occupation. Instead, the plight of the
Palestinian Christian is very much connected to that
of the Palestinian Muslim in that both, whether
in the Occupied Territories or inside Israel itself,
are experiencing daily injustices in the form of
oppressive policies imposed on them by the Israeli
government. Palestinian Christians, like their Muslim
brothers and sisters, have experienced a long history
of dispossession and have not been immune to
Israeli policies of occupation and discrimination. If
anything, they have felt more strongly the feelings of
forsakenness, knowing full well that many Christians
in North America and Europe support without
question the state of Israel in its oppression of their
people. Meanwhile, daily experiences of humiliation
at checkpoints, of land confscation to make way
for the separation barrier, the illegal occupation and
colonization of Palestinian territory, lack of mobility
and access to basic services, unemployment, poverty,
and no sense of hope for a better future for their
children all contribute to a growing emigration of
Palestinian Christians from the historical land of
Palestine.
Struggling with the tensions of feeling forsaken
while seeking a critical hope is a great challenge.
Despair in the Holy Land is very real, and learning
how to talk about God in the midst of such pain
requires recognizing that the starting point of any
relevant theological refection must begin with the
question “My God, why have you forsaken us?” For
Western Christians concerned with justice, peace and
reconciliation in Palestine-Israel, discovering our role
as one of listening to the cries of despair seriously
while being a witness to critical hope begins with
seeing our inextricable connectedness—it begins
with us not forsaking each other.
As Christians who come from a privileged part
of the world, our convictions should compel us to
listen to the voices of our Palestinian brothers and
sisters, voices too often silenced. As we learn from
Jesus’ experience of “God-forsakenness” we should
also learn from Palestinians who share their lives with
us—their despair and their hopes—what it means to
participate in God’s reign of peace and justice.

TO dO JUsTiCe
I
n the same week that Congress approved
over $150 billion more dollars for a
phony and wicked war on terror, Resident
Bush vetoed a bill approved by both houses
of Congress with bi-partisan support which
would have dramatically expanded Children’s
health insurance. The State Children’s Health
Insurance Program (SCHIP) is a joint state-
federal effort that subsidizes health coverage
for 6.6 million people, mostly children, from
families that earn too much to qualify for
Medicaid but not enough to afford their
own private coverage. This veto shows in no
uncertain terms that Bush is committed to
policies which end life, rather than extend and
increase the quality of life. Ironically, Bush
argued that the legislation which added $35
billion over the next 5 years, and would allow
an additional 4 million children access to
health care, would be too costly. The irony is
that health care costs too much, while killing
and warfare has no ceiling or foor for which
spending can occur. Again, as we have stated the
past 7 years, this administration’s policies are
misplaced.
All is not lost, however. Because of the checks
and balances inherent in the Constitution, both
Houses of Congress have the power to override
Bush’s veto. Call your congressman or senator
and urge them to vote in favor of the expanded
SCHIP program.
As you entered the Sanctuary, you should have
received a letter calling for the end of the Iraq
war. This Pastoral Letter, along with tens of
thousands of other signatures, will be taken by
United Church of Christ General Minister John
Thomas to Washington, DC, along with other
church leaders to call on the U.S. Government
to end the war in Iraq. He intends to carry with
him the names of 100,000 people for peace,
those who stand in solidarity with the UCC’s
Pastoral Letter on the Iraq War. If you are sick
and tired of dollars and lives being needlessly
spent and taken, then we urge you to sign
the letter, so that Rev. Thomas may take your
concerns to the Capitol.

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE
IT’S NOT SUPPOSeD TO HURT
I
know why people turn various shades of red when the pastor
gets up on a given Sunday and talks about their stewardship –
especially that part of our stewardship we call our “treasure.” Let
me tell you why.
When you go to the doctor for a routine physical exam, you are asked to
take off your shirt or blouse. Once you do, the physician begins pressing
and probing and poking all around your chest and back. Usually it’s not
a big problem, just a little ticklish or annoying. Then, all of a sudden,
the doctor begins to strike out for new territory and presses on a new
area of your body. Just as suddenly, you finch and blurt out, “ouch!”
The physician gets a surprised look on his face, obviously puzzled by
your reaction. You can see it all over his face. The doctor says, “I’m
sorry, but I have to probe that area again. I promise to be careful and
gentle.” But when the doctor hits the same area you grimaced over, sure
enough, once again you recoil, finch and let out a little louder “ouch!”
The physician says, “I’m sorry, I had to do that, but it’s not supposed to
hurt there! That part isn’t supposed to be sensitive!”
Likewise, when your pastor speaks to you from God’s Word about
your treasure – about the way you manage all the gifts God has given
you – when your pastor touches on returning to God a portion of what
God has given you to manage and take care of, it’s not supposed to be
sensitive there! What might it say about us when the pastor talks about
our stewardship, and we yell, “Ouch!” YOU KNOW, JESUS SAID
THAT IT’S NOT SUPPOSED TO HURT THERE!”
Your Friends in Service,
The Stewardship Ministry
