THERE IS A FOUNTAIN
Verse I
There is a fountain flled with blood
Drawn from Immanuel’s veins
And sinners plunged beneath that food
Lose all their guilty stains
Lose all their guilty stains
Lose all their guilty stains
And sinners plunged beneath that food
Lose all their guilty stains.
Verse II
The dying thief rejoiced to see
That fountain in his day,
And there may I, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away
Wash all my sins away
Wash all my sins away
And there may I, though vile as he,
Wash all my sins away.
Verse III
Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood
Shall never lose its pow’r,
Till all the eansomed Church of God
Be saved to sin no more
Be saved to sin no more
Be saved to sin no more
Till all the ransomed Church of God
Be saved to Sin no more

ACCEPTABLE TO THEE
Verse 1
Let the words of my mouth
And the meditations of my heart
Be acceptable, in thy sight
Let the words of my mouth
And the meditations of my heart
Be acceptable, Lord to Thee
Verse 2
Here I am Lord, at your feet, Lord,
My soul looks up to Thee,
Make my thoughts, Lord,
And my tongue, Lord
Acceptable to Thee

steady goodness so that only good deeds will
pour forth. And if you don’t brag about the
good you do, then you will be truly wise!
14
But
if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfsh
ambition in your hearts, don’t brag about being
wise. That is the worst kind of lie.
15
For
jealousy and selfshness are not God’s kind of
wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual,
and motivated by the Devil.
16
For wherever
there is jealousy and selfsh ambition, there you
will fnd disorder and every kind of evil.
17
But
the wisdom that comes from heaven is frst of all
pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times,
and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy
and good deeds. It shows no partiality and is
always sincere.
18
And those who are peacemakers
will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of
goodness.

JAMES 3:1–18 (NLT)
1
Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you
should become teachers in the church, for we
who teach will be judged by God with greater
strictness.
2
We all make many mistakes, but those
who control their tongues can also control
themselves in every other way.
3
We can make a
large horse turn around and go wherever we
want by means of a small bit in its mouth.
4
And
a tiny rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever
the pilot wants it to go, even though the winds
are strong.
5
So also, the tongue is a small thing,
but what enormous damage it can do. A tiny
spark can set a great forest on fre.
6
And the
tongue is a fame of fre. It is full of wickedness
that can ruin your whole life. It can turn the
entire course of your life into a blazing fame of
destruction, for it is set on fre by hell itself.
7
People can tame all kinds of animals and birds
and reptiles and fsh,
8
but no one can tame the
tongue. It is an uncontrollable evil, full of deadly
poison.
9
Sometimes it praises our Lord and
Father, and sometimes it breaks out into curses
against those who have been made in the image
of God.
10
And so blessing and cursing come
pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my
brothers and sisters, this is not right!
11
Does a
spring of water bubble out with both fresh water
and bitter water?
12
Can you pick olives from a fg
tree or fgs from a grapevine? No, and you can’t
draw fresh water from a salty pool.

wise and understand God’s ways, live a life of

I JOHN 1:5–10 (NRSV)
5
This is the message we have heard from him
and proclaim to you, that God is light and in
him there is no darkness at all.
6
If we say that we
have fellowship with him while we are walking in
darkness, we lie and do not do what is true;
7
but
if we walk in the light as he himself is in the light,
we have fellowship with one another, and the
blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
8
If
we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves,
and the truth is not in us.
9
If we confess our sins,
he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins
and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10
If we
say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar,
and his word is not in us.”

JUDGES 8:22–27 (NIV)
22
The Israelites said to Gideon, “Rule over
us—you, your son and your grandson—because
you have saved us out of the hand of Midian.”
23
But Gideon told them, “I will not rule over
you, nor will my son rule over you. The Lord
will rule over you.”
24
And he said, “I do have
one request, that each of you give me an earring
from your share of the plunder.” (It was the
custom of the Ishmaelites to wear gold
earrings.)
25
They answered, “We’ll be glad to
give them.” So they spread out a garment, and
each man threw a ring from his plunder onto it.
26
The weight of the gold rings he asked for
came to seventeen hundred shekels, not
counting the ornaments, the pendants and the
purple garments worn by the kings of Midian or
the chains that were on their camels’ necks.
27
Gideon made the gold into an ephod, which
he placed in Ophrah, his town. All Israel
prostituted themselves by worshiping it there,
and it became a snare to Gideon and his family.

T
he Howard University School of Divinity, the
Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta and
the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology at Virginia
Union University are trying to identify all seminary graduates
who possess degrees in the health professions.
These three historically Black seminaries are trying to pull together
graduates from their schools with degrees in the health profession to work
together in analyzing and proposing holistic approaches to health that
are informed by the culture, traditions and experiences of the African-
American community.
If you are a seminary graduate with a Master of Divinity, a Master
of Arts in Religious Studies or a Doctor of Ministry and have a health
profession degree in one of the following areas, please contact Ivey Matute
in Pastor Wright’s offce this week.
The degrees that the three seminaries are looking for are in the
following healthcare professions: Physicians, dentists, nurses, psychologists,
optometrists, and podiatrists. They are also looking for persons with
master’s degrees in psychology or social welfare and public health or
bachelor’s degrees in nutrition, occupational or physical therapy and social
work, etc.
Please contact Ms. Matute if you have a seminary degree and a degree in
one of the health professions.
Sincerely yours,
Reverend Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.
ATTENTION ALL SEMINARY GRADUATES!

TO dO JUsTiCe
I
recently received a call from someone
asking why we were boycotting Wal-Mart.
I proceeded to explain how Wal-Mart’s
policies and procedures employ the greed and
oppression which foster prosperity for the rich,
and deeper depths of poverty for the already
impoverished. Further, I stated that until such
time that Wal-Mart decides to change these
policies, we will continue to refuse to patronize
Wal-Mart.
These policies include not paying a livable
wage, offering unaffordable health insurance
to its workers, and refusing to allow workers
to organize for rights and benefts. The Walton
Corporation, (owned by the descendants of
Sam Walton), is also fully vested in its attempts
to destroy public education. The Walton
Foundation, in concert with the Bradley
Foundation of Milwaukee, created the wedge
issue of vouchers in an effort to destroy public
education through what they call “education
reform.” The danger of their attempts to do
such is that their efforts, if successful, would
deny millions of black and brown children,
who can not afford private schools, access to
education. Further, and more importantly, this
would also empower the oppressor to write all
of the curriculum which writes black and brown
people out of history all together.
Another policy of Wal-Mart has been to
force workers to work overtime, without pay.
This is nothing more than slavery. However,
last week, the behemoth that is Wal-Mart took
a big hit. Wal-Mart workers in Pennsylvania,
who previously won a $78.5 million class action
award for working off the clock, will share
an additional $62.3 million in damages. This
Pennsylvania suit is just one of many other suits
either in progress or being brought in other
states.
Dr. Martin Luther King said that no lie can
live forever. Piece by piece, we can either force
Wal-Mart to institute fair and just policies, or
put them out of business!

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE
MONEY AS A SERVANT
T
he late Stanley S. Kresge was a man who gave his all back to
his community. “He considered what he had, a trust from
God, and that he was merely a steward of what God had
given him,” said Rev. William Quick of his most famous
parishioner. Kresge’s plain ways and homespun values were a sharp
contrast to the life he could have lived as heir to the Kresge/K-Mart
fortune.
“Stanley always had his values right. Many people talk about their
faith, but he was a man who lived his faith. He always said money was to
be a servant, not a master,” said Quick.
Evangelist Billy Graham heard of Kresge’s death just after completing
a crusade in England. Graham said that he sent a cablegram to Dorothy
Kresge, saying that her husband, “Was one of my closest friends and
greatest counselors.”
Kresge gave away hundreds of millions of dollars through the Kresge
Foundation begun in 1924 by his father, Sebastian Kresge. To private
causes, “He gave most generously and gave quietly,” said William
Baldwin, past chairman of the Foundation. “I know of many of his
gifts, but he never wanted to publicize them.” Kresge personally gave
$800,000 to Duke University Divinity School.
Bald, rotund and determinedly upbeat, Kresge was frank about most
aspects of his life, but he never let it be known how much of his personal
fortune he gave away. “I’d be embarrassed to have anybody think I was
bragging about charity,” he told a reporter several years before he died.
“I do it for Jesus’ sake, not mine.” His religious feeling colored all he
did. All his check payments and charitable contributions were signed,
“In the name and for the sake of Jesus Christ, Stanley S. Kresge.”

speCiAl ANNOUNCeMeNT
OCTObER IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTh
D
omestic Violence is a pattern of physical, sexual, psychological, and/or economic abuse,
threats, intimidation, isolation, or coercion used by one person to exert power and con-
trol over another person in the context of a current or former dating, family, household,
or care giving relationship.

Most of the reported cases of domestic violence occur within intimate partner relationships.
Does your partner:
prevent you from making personal decisions? •
control your access to money and/or your ability to make or spend money? •
embarrass you with put downs or name calling? •
keep you from spending time with your family or friends? •
tell you you’re a bad parent, threaten to take away or hurt the children? •
intimidate or threaten you? •
physically harm you; i.e. grab, push, pinch, shove, slap, punch, etc.? •
destroy your property or threaten to harm your pet? •
pressure or force you to have sex or engage in sexual activities you are not comfortable with? •
blame you for their actions? •
make you feel inferior to them because of your gender, level of education, economic class, etc.? •
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be in an abusive relationship.
If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship, help is available. Please contact the City
of Chicago Domestic Violence Helpline at 877-TO END DV (877-863-6338) to receive informa-
tion regarding all the domestic violence services including shelters, legal assistance, and counseling
available in the city and suburbs.
Domestic Violence is never “just a private family matter,” it affects our entire society. It is every-
one’s business.

“The ruin of a nation begins in the homes of its people.” African Proverb

Please visit the Silent Witness Project in the upstairs narthex after service today. Contact Anika
Sterling (773) 297-1027 or Nate Blackman (773)297-6344 for information regarding the Domestic
Violence Ministry.
