JUST A LITTLE TALK
WITH JESUS
Verse I
I once was lost in sin, but Jesus took me in,
And then a little light from heaven flled my soul;
It bathed my heart in love and wrote my name above,
And jus a little talk with Jesus made me whole.
Chorus
Have a little talk with Jesus,
Tell Him all about your troubles,
Hear our faintest cry, answer by and by;
Feel a little prayer wheel turning,
Know a little fre is burning,
Find a little talk with Jesus makes it right.
Verse II
Sometimes my path seems drear, without a ray of cheer,
And then a cloud of doubt may hide the light of day;
The mists of sin may rise and hide the starry skies,
But just a little talk with Jesus clears the way.
Repeat Chorus
Verse III
I may have doubts and fears, my eyes be flled with tears,
But Jesus is a friend who watches day and night;
I go to Him in prayer, He knows my ev’ry care,
And just a little talk with Jesus makes it right.
Repeat Chorus
11:00 a.m.
BLESSED ASSURAnCE
Verse I
Blessed assurance, Jesus is Mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.
Chorus
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long,
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.
Verse II
Perfect submission, perfect delight!
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight,
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
(Repeat chorus)
Verse III
Perfect submission all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.
(Repeat chorus)

Now they had been sent from the Pharisees.
25
They asked him, “Why then are you baptizing
if you are neither the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor
the prophet?”
26
John answered them, “I baptize
with water. Among you stands one whom you do
not know,
27
the one who is coming after me;
I am not worthy to untie the thong of his
sandal.”
28
This took place in Bethany across the
Jordan where John was baptizing.”

The next day he saw Jesus coming toward
him and declared, “Here is the Lamb of God
who takes away the sin of the world!
30
This is
he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who
ranks ahead of me because he was before me.’
31
I myself did not know him; but I came
baptizing with water for this reason, that he
might be revealed to Israel.”
32
And John
testifed, “I saw the Spirit descending from
heaven like a dove, and it remained on him.
33
I myself did not know him, but the one who
sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘He on
whom you see the Spirit descend and remain is
the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’
34
And I myself have seen and have testifed that
this is the Son of God.”

32
That evening after sunset the people brought
to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed.
33
The
whole town gathered at the door,
34
and Jesus
healed many who had various diseases. He also
drove out many demons, but he would not let
the demons speak because they knew who he
was.
35
Very early in the morning, while it was
still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went
off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
36
Simon
and his companions went to look for him,
37
and
when they found him, they exclaimed: “Every-
one is looking for you!”
38
Jesus replied, “Let us
go somewhere else —to the nearby villages—so I
can preach there also. That is why I have come.”
40
A man with leprosy came to him and begged
him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can
make me clean.”

JOHn 1:19–28 (NRSV)

This is the testimony given by John when the
Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to
ask him, “Who are you?”
20
He confessed and
did not deny it, but confessed, “I am not the
Messiah.”
21
And they asked him, “What then?
Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you
the prophet?” He answered, “No.”

Then they
said to him, “Who are you? Let us have an answer
for those who sent us. What do you say about
yourself?”

He said, “I am the voice of one

A POweRfUl wORD Of HOPe fROm BISHOP TUTU
W
HENEVER
I am asked if
I am optimistic
about an end to
the Israeli/Palestinian confict,
I say that I am not. Optimism
requires clear signs that things
are changing meaningful words
and unambiguous actions that
point to real progress. I do not
yet hear enough meaningful
words, nor do I yet see enough
unambiguous deeds to justify
optimism.
However, that does not mean I am without
hope. I am a Christian. I am constrained by my
faith to hope against hope, placing my trust
in things as yet unseen. Hope persists in the
face of evidence to the contrary, undeterred by
setbacks and disappointment. Hoping against
hope, then, I do believe that a resolution will be
found. It will not be perfect, but it can be just;
and if it is just, it will usher in a future of peace.
My hope for peace is not amorphous. It has a
shape. It is not the shape of a particular political
solution, although there are some political solu-
tions that I believe to be more just than others.
Neither does my hope take the shape of a
particular people, although I have pleaded tire-
lessly for international attention to be paid to
the misery of Palestinians, and I have roundly
condemned the injustices of
certain Israeli policies that
compound that misery. Thus
I am often accused of siding
with Palestinians against Israeli
Jews, naively exonerating the
one and unfairly demonizing
the other.
Nevertheless, I insist that the
hope in which I persist is not
reducible to politics or identi-
fed with a people. It has a
more encompassing shape.
I like to call it “God’s dream.”
God has a dream for all his children. It is
about a day when all people enjoy fundamental
security and live free of fear. It is about a day
when all people have a hospitable land in which
to establish a future. More than anything else,
God’s dream is about a day when all people are
accorded equal dignity because they are hu-
man beings. In God’s beautiful dream, no other
reason is required.
God’s dream begins when we begin to know
each other differently, as bearers of a common
humanity, not as statistics to be counted, prob-
lems to be solved, enemies to be vanquished or
animals to be caged. God’s dream begins the
moment one adversary looks another in the eye
and sees himself refected there.
All things become possible when hearts

pAsTOr’s pAge
BISHOP TUTU, cont’d
fxed in mutual contempt begin to grasp a trans-
forming truth; namely, that this person I fear
and despise is not an alien, something less than
human. This person is very much like me, and
enjoys and suffers, loves and fears, wonders, wor-
ries, and hopes. Just as I do, this person longs for
well-being in a world of peace.
God’s dream begins with this mutual recogni-
tion – we are not strangers, we are kin. It culmi-
nates in the defeat of oppression perpetrated in
the name of security, and of violence inficted in
the name of liberation. God’s dream routs the
cynicism and despair that once cleared the path
for hate to have its corrosive way with us, and for
ravenous violence to devour everything in sight.
God’s dream comes to fower when everyone
who claims to be wholly innocent relinquishes
that illusion, when everyone who places absolute
blame on another renounces that lie, and when
differing stories are told at last as one shared
story of human aspiration. God’s dream ends in
healing and reconciliation. Its fnest fruit is hu-
man wholeness fourishing in a moral universe.
In the meanwhile, between the root of human
solidarity and the fruit of human wholeness,
there is the hard work of telling the truth.
From my experience in South Africa I know
that truth-telling is hard. It has grave conse-
quences for one’s life and reputation. It stretches
one’s faith, tests one’s capacity to love, and
pushes hope to the limit. At times, the diffculty
of this work can make you wonder if people are
right about you, that you are a fool.
No one takes up this work on a do-gooder’s
whim. It is not a choice. One feels compelled
into it. Neither is it work for a little while,
but rather for a lifetime - and for more than a
lifetime. It is a project bigger than any one life.
This long view is a source of encouragement
and perseverance. The knowledge that the work
preceded us and will go on after us is a fountain
of deep gladness that no circumstance can alter.
Nothing, however, diminishes the fear and
trembling that accompany speaking the truth to
power in love. An acute awareness of fallibility is
a constant companion in this task, but because
nothing is more important in the current situa-
tion than to speak as truthfully as one can, there
can be no shrinking from testifying to what one
sees and hears.
What do I see and hear in the Holy Land?
Some people cannot move freely from one place
to another. A wall separates them from their
families and from their incomes. They cannot
tend to their gardens at home or to their les-
sons at school. They are arbitrarily demeaned
at checkpoints and unnecessarily beleaguered
by capricious applications of bureaucratic red
tape. I grieve for the damage being done daily
to people’s souls and bodies. I have to tell the
truth: I am reminded of the yoke of oppression
that was once our burden in South Africa.
I see and hear that ancient olive trees are
uprooted. Flocks are cut off from their

pAsTOr’s pAge
pastures and shepherds. The homes of some peo-
ple are bulldozed even as new homes for others
are illegally constructed on other people’s land. I
grieve for the land that suffers such violence, the
marring of its beauty, the loss of its comforts, the
despoiling of its yield. I have to tell the truth: I
am reminded of the bitter days of uprooting and
despoiling in my own country.
I see and hear that young people believe that
it is heroic and pious to kill others by killing
themselves. They strap bombs to their torsos to
achieve liberation. They do not know that libera-
tion achieved by brutality will defraud in the end.
I grieve the waste of their lives and of the lives
they take, the loss of personal and communal
security they cause, and the lust for revenge that
follows their crimes, crowding out all reason and
restraint. I have to tell the truth: I am reminded of
the explosive anger that infamed South Africa, too.
Some people are enraged by comparisons
between the Israeli/Palestinian confict and what
happened in South Africa. There are differences
between the two situations, but a comparison
need not be exact in every feature to yield clarity
about what is going on.
Moreover, for those of us who lived through
the dehumanizing horrors of the apartheid era,
the comparison seems not only apt, it is also
necessary. It is necessary if we are to persevere in
our hope that things can change.
Indeed, because of what I experienced in
South Africa, I harbor a vast, unreasoning hope
for Israel and the Palestinian territories. South
Africans, after all, had no reason to suppose that
the evil system and the cycles of violence that
were sapping the soul of our nation would ever
change. There was nothing special or different
about South Africans to deserve the appear-
ance of the very thing for which we prayed and
worked and suffered so long.
Most South Africans did not believe they
would live to see a day of liberation. They did
not believe that their children’s children would
see it. They did not believe that such a day even
existed, except in fantasy. But we have seen it.
We are living now in the day we longed for.
It is not a cloudless day. The divine arc that
bends toward a truly just and whole society has
not yet stretched fully across my country’s sky
like a rainbow of peace. It is not fnished, it does
not always live up to its promise, it is not perfect
—but it is new. A brand new thing, like a dream
of God, has come about to replace the old story
of mutual hatred and oppression.
I have seen it and heard it, and so to this
truth, too, I am compelled to testify - if it can
happen in South Africa, it can happen with the
Israelis and Palestinians. There is not much
reason to be optimistic, but there is every reason
to hope.

Town, chairman of the South African Truth and

TO dO JUsTiCe
O
n Tuesday November 6, 2007, after
hours of intense questioning, Attorney
General nominee Michael Mukasey
assured the Judiciary Committee that he would
enforce a law to prohibit an interrogation torture
tactic called water boarding. This statement came
on the heels of his refusal to characterize water
boarding as an illegal form of torture. Sen. Edward
Kennedy (D-Mass.) called Mukasey’s assurances
“perhaps the most stunning and hollow promise
reportedly made by a nominee for attorney general
in my 45 years in the Senate.”
Water boarding, as it is currently described,
involves strapping a person to an inclined board,
with his feet raised and his head lowered. The
interrogators bind the person’s arms and legs so he
can’t move at all, and they cover his face. In some
descriptions, the person is gagged, and some sort
of cloth covers his nose and mouth; in others, his
face is wrapped in cellophane. The interrogator
then repeatedly pours water onto the person’s face.
Depending on the exact setup, the water may or may
not actually get into the person’s mouth and nose;
but the physical experience of being underneath
a wave of water seems to be secondary to the
psychological experience. The person’s mind believes
he is drowning, and his gag refex kicks in as if he
were choking on all that water falling on his face.
As this country continues to employ old ways of
torturing people (water boarding has been around
for 1500 years), they continue to fnd new ways
to torture through laws, and policies. From Jena,
Louisiana, to West Virginia, to New York, to right
here on the streets of Chicago, the hypocrisy of
the powers that be is unfathomable. In the words
of Lupe Fiasco, we live under a government who is
the “American Terrorist.”

Part 2
Last week, we shared some startling facts
about the health care crisis in this state.
15.8 % (1.75 million) of Illinois residents •
are unemployed:
You don’t have to be poor to be uninsured •
in Illinois: 12% of Illinois children (under
age 18) are uninsured:
A signifcant percentage of the uninsured •
are full-time employees
Small businesses can’t afford to cover •
employees
As you entered the sanctuary, you should have
gotten a letter which urges the state legislature not
to put a band-aid on the gun shot wound that is
the health care crisis. This letter calls for the state
to make its health care crisis a true priority, and
engage in real health care reform. We urge you
to sign this letter so that we may send it to the
legislative leadership in Springfeld.

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE
STEWARDS OF STRAnGERS
“I especially would like to welcome a young family man to our church,” said
the Deacon. “I hope you enjoy us.”
“Man, I couldn’t wait to change churches!” replied John. “The people at the
church I left were the coldest, stingiest bunch of do nothings ever!” “It must
have been hard to work with a group like that,” sympathized the Deacon.
“I wouldn’t know,” John answered. “I never lifted a fnger for them; always
wrangling and griping.”
The Deacon placed his hand gently on his shoulder. “John, I hope you’ll be
patient with us; I’m afraid our church is a little like that, too.”
The Deacon turned to welcome an elderly man who had come to our town to
live with his daughter. “It is a pleasure to welcome a senior Christian; I hope
that you will enjoy our group.”
“I hope so, too,” said Frank. “I hated to leave my old church; they were such
warm, caring people.”
“I’ll bet you were really involved there,” commented the Deacon. “Yes, I
guess I tried everything, except preaching,” smiled Frank. “I enjoyed serving
those generous people, always working cheerfully together.” The Deacon
glowed, “Frank, I am positive you’ll fnd our church to be the same.”
