THE CHURCH’S ONE
FOUNDATION
Verse I
The Church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord,
She is His new creation by water and the word;
From heav’n He came and sought Her
To be His holy Bride;
With His own blood He bought her,
And for her life He died.
Verse II
Elect from ev’ry nation, Yet one o’er all the earth,
Her charter of salvation, One Lord, One faith, one birth;
One holy name she blesses, Partakes one holy food,
And to one hope she presses, with ev’ry grace endured.
Verse III
‘Mid toil and tribulation, and tumult of her war,
She waits the consummation of peace for evermore;
Till with the vision glorious, Her longing eyes are blest,
And the great Church victorious
Shall be the Church at rest.
Verse IV
Yet she on earth hath union with God, the Three in One,
And mystic sweet communion with those whose rest
is won;
O happy ones and holy! Lord, give us Grace that we
Like them, the meek and lowly, In love may dwell
with Thee.

Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
Verse I
I am weak but Thou art strong;
Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
I’ll be satisfed as long
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.
Repeat Refrain
Verse II
Through this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.

When my feeble life is o’er,
Time for me will be no more;
Guide me gently, safely o’er
To Thy kingdom shore, to thy shore.

master got up, opened the doors of the house,
and when he went out to go on his way, there
was his concubine lying at the door of the house,
with her hands on the threshold.
28
“Get up,”
he said to her, “we are going.” But there was
no answer. Then he put her on the donkey; and
the man set out for his home.
29
When he had
entered his house, he took a knife, and grasping
his concubine he cut her into twelve pieces, limb
by limb, and sent her throughout all the territory
of Israel.
30
Then he commanded the men whom
he sent, saying, “Thus shall you say to all the
Israelites, ‘Has such a thing ever happened since
the day that the Israelites came up from the land
of Egypt until this day? Consider it, take counsel,
and speak out.’”

While they were enjoying themselves, the men
of the city, a perverse lot, surrounded the house,
and started pounding on the door. They said to
the old man, the master of the house, “Bring
out the man who came into your house, so that
we may have intercourse with him.”
23
And the
man, the master of the house, went out to them
and said to them, “No, my brothers, do not act
so wickedly. Since this man is my guest, do not
do this vile thing.
24
Here are my virgin daughter
and his concubine; let me bring them out now.
Ravish them and do whatever you want to them;
but against this man do not do such a vile thing.”
25
But the men would not listen to him. So the
man seized his concubine, and put her out to
them. They wantonly raped her, and abused her
all through the night until the morning. And as
the dawn began to break, they let her go.

As
morning appeared, the woman came and fell
down at the door of the man’s house where her
master was, until it was light.

GENESIS 16:1–16 (NRSV)
1
Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, bore him no
children. She had an Egyptian slave-girl whose
name was Hagar,
2
and Sarai said to Abram,
“You see that the Lord has prevented me from
bearing children; go in to my slave-girl; it may
be that I shall obtain children by her.” And
Abram listened to the voice of Sarai.
3
So, after
Abram had lived ten years in the land of
Canaan, Sarai, Abram’s wife, took Hagar the
Egyptian, her slave-girl, and gave her to her
husband Abram as a wife.
4
He went in to
Hagar, and she conceived; and when she saw
that she had conceived, she looked with
contempt on her mistress.
5
Then Sarai said to
Abram, “May the wrong done to me be on you!
I gave my slave-girl to your embrace, and when
she saw that she had conceived, she looked on
me with contempt. May the Lord judge
between you and me!”
6
But Abram said to
Sarai, “Your slave-girl is in your power; do to
her as you please.” Then Sarai dealt harshly with
her, and she ran away from her.
7
The angel of
the Lord found her by a spring of water in the
wilderness, the spring on the way to Shur.
8
And
he said, “Hagar, slave-girl of Sarai, where have
you come from and where are you going?” She
said, “I am running away from my mistress
Sarai.”
9
The angel of the Lord said to her,
“Return to your mistress, and submit to her.”
10
The angel of the Lord also said to her, “I will
so greatly multiply your offspring that they
cannot be counted for multitude.”
11
And the
angel of the Lord said to her, “Now you have
conceived and shall bear a son; you shall call him
Ishmael, for the Lord has given heed to your
affiction.
12
He shall be a wild ass of a man, with
his hand against everyone, and everyone’s hand
against him; and he shall live at odds with all his
kin.”
13
So she named the Lord who spoke to
her, “You are El-roi”; for she said, “Have I
really seen God and remained alive after seeing
him?”
14
Therefore the well was called Beer-lahai-
roi; it lies between Kadesh and Bered.
15
Hagar
bore Abram a son; and Abram named his son,
whom Hagar bore, Ishmael.
16
Abram was
eighty-six years old when Hagar bore him
Ishmael.

any of you have been faithfully in-
volved in advocacy efforts over the
years to close the School of the
Americas, now known as the Western Hemi-
sphere Institute for Security Cooperation (SOA/
WHINSEC), housed at Fort Benning, GA. The
SOA/WHINSEC is funded by U.S. taxpayer
dollars with the aim of
teaching military tech-
niques that have resulted
in the murder and disap-
pearance of thousands in
Latin America. There are
well-documented links
between human rights
violators and the SOA.
Your advocacy efforts
are making a difference!
Members of Congress
and the American public are becoming aware
and educated about where their tax dollars are
being sent. In June, a vote to cut funding for the
SOA/WHINSEC was narrowly defeated by six
votes. Support in Congress to cut funding for
SOA/WHINSEC is growing, and thanks to the
hard work of advocates around the country, we
are closer to achieving this signifcant legislative
victory.
As part of the effort to close the SOA/WHIN-
SEC, a vigil has been held at Fort Benning, GA,
in November for over ten years, marking the an-
niversary of the killing of six Jesuit priests, their
housekeeper and her daughter in El Salvador at
the hands of SOA graduates. Every year the vigil
has grown in number and energy.
This year the vigil is be-
ing held November 16–18,
2007. We encourage UCC
justice and peace activists
to attend the vigil, and
encourage all to continue
to advocate for passage of
HR 1707, legislation that
would suspend operations
at SOA/WHINSEC.
For more information
on the events of the week-
end, as well as information about housing and
travel, visit the SOA Watch website: www.soaw.
org. Limited scholarship money for attending the
vigil is being provided by UCC Justice and Wit-
ness Ministries. If you are interested in receiving
scholarship money for housing and travel to Fort
Benning, please contact Sandy Sorensen [sorens-
es@ucc.org] or Wally Ryan Kuroiwa [ryankurw@
ucc.org] by November 1.”

involved in what I call “corporate pedophilia.”
Executives of the major music companies are
involved in the sexualization and exploitation
of young children, especially Black children.
The story below is an example of how corpo-
rate America tries to “turn out” our children
for proft. They dress, photograph and market
underage children as sex objects for worldwide
consumption. If pedophilia is the sick, twisted
desire to sexualize and exploit our children, then
many of our corporations are the number one
pedophiles. Take a look at the article below and
see how the wider culture views our girls.
God Bless,
J
esus stated in the gospels, “It is better to
have millstone placed around your neck
and be cast into the sea than it is to harm
one child.” Since 1985 and the dismantling of
the Federal Communications Commission, we
have seen a merging of multinational media
conglomerates. Currently, there are about eight
companies controlling 90% of everything we
hear, read, watch on television or view in the
movie theater. These companies operate with
contempt and disdain for the Black community,
women, and people of the African Diaspora.
One troubling sector of this market-driven
machine is the area of music and the creation of
popular culture by corporations such as Sony,
Time-Warner, Fox and MCA. They are all

THe WAR ON blACK CHIldReN
Interesting. The Music industry is Mega-Shady!

K
eke Palmer, is the 14-year-old girl who played Akeelah, in the movie, Akeelah and the Bee. She
and her mother, Sharon, have a huge problem with the upcoming record deal they signed with
Atlantic Records in March of 2006. The problem is that the record label wants to market the 14
year old as a sexpot, but she does not want that image.
Keke admits “From the very beginning, Atlantic’s A&R representative tried to get me to record
inappropriate music, and my parents and I resisted.”
Soon, Keke and her mom became tired of fghting the negative images that the label kept trying to
force on her, and they started looking for a management company that could deal with the situation. They
settled on DAS Entertainment, a management company out of New York. (John Legend’s label). One
problem, the label has been blocking the efforts!
ATlANTIC ReCORdS TRIeS TO TuRN
14-yeAR-Old ACTReSS INTO lIl KIm

pAsTOr’s pAGe
Atlantic kept telling them that “Keke is ‘urban’
and should be singing urban music.” Keke’s
mom Sharon got her in touch with Mr. Edmonds
(Babyface) and he and Keke worked really well
together and came up with a good commercial
R&B song, but when it came time to pay for the
song, the label said no, he was “too expensive.”
Paul Porter, of www.Industryears.com, says
“Keke Palmer is the poster child for what’s wrong
with the music industry. Imagine being 12 years old
and Atlantic Records trying to mold Keke in the
mold of Lil Kim or Foxy Brown.”
The problem with the corporate hip
hop machine is more than black and white.
Unfortunately, white America enjoys seeing and
hearing about cultural misogyny, sex and violence.
They honestly believe black America is the mix of
lyrically challenged artists they promote.
The industry spin on Keke is nothing new.
When you fail to promote or market a new artist
they often fail. If Keke recorded a Jibb type,
“Chain Hang Low,” or say a Plies’ “Shorty,” BET
and radio would be all over it. In my eyes, Atlantic
Records for now, has simply passed on one of the
most talented artist to come around in decades.
Keke Palmer is no one-hit wonder.
Who’s behind this nonsense? Well, the senior
A&R rep, Mike Caren, was the main antagonist.
He kept on saying, “ Keke is urban,” so as long as
they refused to record the raunchy tracks that he
sent them, he refused to pay for the good clean
music they brought him. At one point, he even
stopped Keke from recording, by not paying for
studio time.
Unfortunately, Das Entertainment, the
management company, was also ineffective in
dealing with the label, they now began to codify
the intent by repeating, “ We will not promote her
unless she records urban music.” This statement
confused Keke and her mom. They are unsure of
what is really being said indirectly.
Just for the record, Keke is from the south side
of Chicago. She began singing in her church’s
choir at the age of fve, and she auditioned for a
stage production of The Lion King at the age of
nine. She grew up listening to Brandy, Aaliyah and
TLC, so it was not like she was recording rock
music! She was recording good music, with great
beats, with good positive lyrics, her music is what
all kids want to hear no matter where they live.
She was blessed to have worked with some of the
top producers in the business, some even cut their
price down so that the label would not have an
excuse not to pay for the songs.
The only thing she and her parents could fgure
out was that the subject matters that she chose
to sing about were not as, “urban” as they would
have preferred.
She is only 14 years old, and when she signed
the deal she was only 12 years old, what did they
think she would be singing about?
Anyway, they kept their word and did very
little to promote her cd. They refused to provide
marketing reports, even when Das Management
kept asking. Then on September 14th, they
received the report, 4 days before her CD release
date of September 18th.
Needless to say, it was not a good report, there
ATlANTIC ReCORdS, cont’d

Order Of WOrship pAsTOr’s pAGe
were absolutely no plans to pay for a national
announcement to tell kids that her CD was even
being released! They kept their word and did
not promote Keke because she was too clean,
she refused to go “ urban,” and sing words that
disrespect her and other young girls.
Keke’s parents tried to promote the release in
Chicago (her hometown). They called the press on
their own, and managed to get on some morning
shows, but that was only in Chicago. Her debut
CD that she worked so hard on sold 1,325 copies,
the label supposedly shipped 69,000 copies.
She was in a Disney Channel movie, JUMP IN,
that over 8 million households tuned in to watch
its debut. The soundtrack to that movie debuted at
No. 5 on Billboard. She was the only artist to have
two songs on that soundtrack (she can sing). The
Akeelah DVD sold 1.2 million copies and on that
DVD she has a music video. So her audience, kids
from 8–15, know who she is. She also sung the
end title credit to the block-buster movie Night at
the Museum, which grossed over 270 million. Her
voice is the frst voice you hear coming out of the
movie. Fox tried to get Atlantic to go half on a
music video for Keke, but Atlantic declined stating,
“That song is NOT ‘Keke’s image,’ so we will not
pay. Of course, they regretted that after the movie
grossed so much! This was way back in February
2007; this was a foreshadowing of events to come!
Last week Keke’s mother, Sharon, received
a call from an employee of Atlantic Records, a
confdential call off the record. The caller told
her mother that the president of the label is so
disappointed with low sales that she may pull
Keke’s cd off the shelf. The caller was so upset by
this statement that she wanted Keke’s parents to
know what was being said behind closed doors.
She was disappointed that the label refused to
promote Keke, and now they are blaming her
for poor sales! Keke was informed that Congress
was working to make the labels promote positive
music; well, her music is positive, but the label
will not spend a dime to promote it because she
refused to sing raunchy lyrics, and dares to call
herself Pop/R&B and not urban/ Hip-Hop.
Keke admits “I am only a kid, my parents would
kill me if I sang stuff like that.” Ask yourself, why
they want their daughter to sing negative music?
They knew her age when they signed her, they
came to her after seeing Akeelah and the Bee, and
begged her to sign, so why did they not think that
she could really be like Akeelah, a good girl?
In closing, we are asking our audience, should
Keke just let it go, and accept the fact that this
label will not promote this album. Or, should they
try to get the message out on their own?
Keke wants to try to get the message out
because they worked extremely hard on this music
and it is good, and the early online reviews are
good.
Go to www.kekepalmer.com and listen for
yourself. I think the kids would like it if they knew
that it was out. Her parents are so tired of fghting
the label. They are not rich, and to launch their
own promotions would cost a lot of money. Her
parents don’t want to go broke trying to push
a CD that the label should be pushing, or they
go broke to break the album, while the label just
becomes richer.

TO dO JUsTiCe
T
his is to inform you that an incredible
injustice is at hand. A very important
vote is one day away that will impact
our community in terms of HIV prevention.
The State of Illinois’ Prevention Community
Planning Group (PCPG) is about to take a vote
of non-concurrence on the Illinois Department
of Public Health’s (IDPH) Comprehensive Plan
for HIV Prevention.
Why this should matter to you?
This vote has the potential to halt HIV •
prevention services throughout the state
of Illinois
This vote is based on erroneous data •
that has been manipulated for political
purposes to rip prevention dollars away
from communities of color
The PCPG’s vote is a personal attack on •
African American leaders within the Illinois
Department of Public Health who have
been fghting to stop the spread of HIV
The vote will delay 2008 prevention •
funding
What you CAN do:
Early on MONDAY MORNING, make •
a call to Governor Blagojevich’s offce
and the offce of Dr. Damen T. Arnold,
IDPH Director, by calling the Illinois
State switchboard at: 312-793-3500
Call your state representative •
Tell them the following: •
“It has come to my attention that the
Illinois Department of Public Health
Prevention Community Planning Group is
meeting to issue a vote of non-concurrence
on October 29th prior to the State of Illinois
HIV/STD conference in Springfeld. As
a registered voter and concerned citizen, I
demand that this vote not take place until
members of the community are allowed to
take part in this process because the current
position negates the best interests of my
community.”

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE
TITHINg TeACHeS. It is very clear that God, through his unconditional
love for us, blessed us with many talents so that we would be good stewards of
His creation. God said for us to, “Fill the earth and subdue it.”
VOluNTeeRISm. “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down
his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
We are borne out in Jesus’ life and his death on the cross, and have served
down through the centuries as the impetus for disciples of Christ to give of
their time and talent to many varied ministries.
OuR FAITH JOuRNey. Our faith journey can be helped by our seeing,
understanding and accepting our stewardship. We affrm our faith by our
actions. Those actions are the use of our gifts and our talents and are, thus,
acts of stewardship.
The deeper and stronger our faith, the more consistently we will perform acts
of charity, peace and freedom that build the kingdom of God on Earth.
THe PleASuRe OF gIVINg. The only real happiness in this world
derives from doing something for others. It must be done of your own free
will to produce full gratifcation. There is no real satisfaction in giving merely
to get a tax deduction, or because someone hounded you to do so.
Don’t deny yourself the pleasure of giving because you want to. Remember:
Giving is the start of living.
Your Friends in Service,
The Stewardship Ministry

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.
