MATTHEW 2:13–15 (NRSV)
13
Now after they had left, an angel of the Lord
appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get
up, take the child and his mother, and fee to
Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for
Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy
him.”
14
Then Joseph got up, took the child and
his mother by night, and went to Egypt,
15
and
remained there until the death of Herod. This
was to fulfll what had been spoken by the Lord
through the prophet, “Out of Egypt I have called
my son.”

1
On the third day there was a wedding in Cana
of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.

2
Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to
the wedding.
3
When the wine gave out, the
mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no
wine.”
4
And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what
concern is that to you and to me? My hour has
not yet come.”
5
His mother said to the servants,
“Do whatever he tells you.”
6
Now standing
there were six stone water jars for the Jewish rites
of purifcation, each holding twenty or thirty
gallons.
7
Jesus said to them, “Fill the jars with
water.” And they flled them up to the brim.
8
He
said to them, “Now draw some out, and take it
to the chief steward.” So they took it.
9
When the
steward tasted the water that had become wine,
and did not know where it came from (though
the servants who had drawn the water knew), the
steward called the bridegroom
10
and said to him,
“Everyone serves the good wine frst, and then
the inferior wine after the guests have become
drunk. But you have kept the good wine until
now.”

A FOLLOw-up ON BiShOp TuTu’S DiS-iNViTATiON!
ADVOCACy AND The ACADemy
by Alain Epp Weaver
U
niversity of St. Thomas stones Nobel
Peace Prophet Desmond Tutu:
Please Take Action!” So began an
e-mail I received early this October
from Friends of Sabeel-North America, an advocacy
group working for justice and peace in Palestine-Is-
rael. The dramatic headline evoked biblical punish-
ment and the trope of the unwelcome, embattled
prophet. I soon received a similar email from the
Muzzlewatch website, a project of the Jewish Voice
for Peace organization committed to “creating
an open atmosphere for debate about US-Israeli
policy.”
Anglican Archbishop Tutu had been invited
by a local affliate of PeaceJam International, a
group dedicated to bringing Nobel Laureates into
conversation with youth, to speak at its spring 2008
conference. Since 2003, PeaceJam has held its
conferences on the campus of the University of St.
Thomas, a Catholic university in the Twin Cities,
and anticipated that 2008 would be no different.
The university administration, however, decided
not to host Tutu.
When the story became public in late September,
receiving extensive coverage in the Twin Cities’
local newspapers, the university administration
explained its decision as an attempt to be sensitive
to the local Jewish community. “The concerns were
that there are some Jewish people in the com-
munity who feel that the Archbishop has stepped
over the line with his criticism of Israel and Israeli
policies,” Doug Hennes, university vice presi-
dent, stated in the campus newspaper, The Aquin,
although he insisted that “We did not receive any
pressure from anybody in the Jewish community
not to invite him.”
At issue was a speech Tutu had given at an April
2002 Friends of Sabeel conference on “Ending the
Occupation.” [We published excerpts of Bishop
Tutu’s speech in The Guardian article here in your
bulletin on the second Sunday in November.]
The Zionist Organization of America, among
others, objected to parallels drawn by Tutu between
the Israeli military occupation and apartheid-era
South Africa and claimed that Tutu had likened Is-
rael to the Nazi regime. Tutu published his speech
in the April 29, 2002 issue of The Guardian under
the title, “Apartheid in the Holy Land.”
Decrying the occupation’s checkpoint and
roadblock regime in the Occupied Territories, Tutu
asked, “Have our Jewish sisters and brothers for-
gotten their humiliation? Have they forgotten the
collective punishment, the home demolitions, in
their own history so soon? Have they turned their
backs on their profound and noble religious tradi-
tions? Have they forgotten that God cares deeply
about the downtrodden?”
This is a busy season. And it’s just gotten busier.
As it once was proclaimed by angels, “Glory to God
in the highest and on earth peace.” Let us be bold
this Christmas to proclaim and advance peace for all
of God’s people.

BiShOp TuTu, cont’d
[Bishop Tutu] proceeded to insist that, “We live
in a moral universe. The apartheid government was
very powerful, but today it no longer exists. Hitler,
Mussolini, Stalin, Pinochet, Milosevic, and
Idi Amin were all powerful, but in the end they
bit the dust.” A strongly stated, perhaps even
provocative, way of making the point that all
oppressive systems will one day come to an end,
but also not a claim that the Israeli government was
equivalent to Hitler.
The decision not to invite Tutu created strong
opposition among faculty and students, and Jew-
ish Voice for Peace joined with other groups in a
campaign to urge St. Thomas not to stife free and
frank consideration of Israeli government policies.
Even Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation
League, while strongly disagreeing with Tutu’s
evaluation of Israeli policies, urged St. Thomas to
reconsider its stance. By October 10 the university
had shifted course.
“I have wrestled with what is the right thing
to do in this situation, and I have concluded that
I made the wrong decision earlier this year not
to invite the archbishop,” university president Fr.
Dennis Dease wrote in a message to the university
community. Tutu and PeaceJam have been invited
to meet at the university next year, although the
event will most likely proceed at Metropolitan State
University, which agreed to host the conference
after St. Thomas turned down Tutu.
Ideally, the academy is a place where reasoned
disagreement is possible, and where one fnds
people passionately engaged in advocacy of differ-
ent types. How to think about the role of advocacy
in church and academy was the focus of a recent
workshop at the University of Chicago Divinity
School, where scholars and clergy gathered to think
about the pitfalls and promises of advocacy in their
particular contexts.
The Tutu incident at St. Thomas refects the
complications that can arise, as noted by speakers
at the workshop and discussed in breakout sessions,
when issues that generate heated disagreement are
brought into these settings. Learning to have such
debates in a reasoned spirit of patience and charity
is challenging, but what certainly will not facilitate
intense discussions in either the academy or the
church is simply closing down the debate. One
can therefore celebrate St. Thomas’ decision to
reverse course and invite Tutu as underscoring the
importance of carrying on with contentious, even
controversial, conversations.

DOn’T BE FOOLED:
The ReAL pROBLem iS NOT immigRATiON
pAsTOr’s pAge
Written by Edith Rasell, Minister for Workplace Justice
M
any Americans have a love-hate
relationship with immigrant work-
ers. We sometimes hate immigrants
who take “our” jobs. At the same
time, we love low prices, prices that may depend
on the very low wages paid immigrant workers.
But, when native-born workers are in confict with
immigrant workers, we all lose. A good society
can only be built on justice for all—for immigrant
workers and for workers born in the U.S.
Chiapas is one of the poorest states in Mexico,
and the former home of many immigrants. A typical
coffee farmer in the highlands lives in a tiny house
with a dirt foor and a single dangling light bulb.
Everyone is well acquainted with poverty and hard-
ship. But as a tidal wave of economic destruction
has washed over the highland villages, people have
been forced to travel north to the U.S. seeking work.
Loved ones left behind face the destruction of their
family and community life. When asked to identify
their greatest problem, villagers name immigration.
Coffee farmers in Chiapas, and many other work-
ers around the world, are losing their livelihoods
and ways of life, due to biased international agree-
ments that favor corporations over workers. Skewed
economic policies are forcing people to leave their
homes to seek work and refuge from a tsunami of
economic globalization.
Workers in the U.S. are also confronting this tidal
wave of economic change and destruction. Global-
ization has brought stagnant or falling wages, a shift
from well-paid manufacturing jobs to lower paying
ones, fnancial insecurity, and competition by im-
migrants for jobs.
Immigration has become a hot-button issue. But,
the real problem is not immigrant workers. They are
often victims of a system that serves neither native-
born nor foreign-born workers. A few years ago,
the U.S. Department of Labor found that none of
the poultry processing plants they examined paid
employees for all the time they worked. In meat
packing, more than one in every ten workers has a
signifcant injury each year. Both these industries
employ large numbers of immigrant workers. And,
immigrants from Mexico are killed on their jobs in
the U.S. at a rate 75% higher than that of workers
who were born here.
The problem for American workers is not im-
migration, but weak and poorly enforced workplace
protections. Most frms do not exploit workers, im-
migrant or native-born. But, some do. If these com-
panies can pay less than is required by law, violate
safety standards, fre a worker or get him deported
if he tries to form a union, and do so with minimal
penalties or none at all, then we will see more frms
exploiting workers. Wages will continue to fall, ben-
efts will continue to disappear, union membership
will continue to decline, and American workers will
become more fnancially insecure. The rich will get
richer, and the poor, poorer.
The answer is not hostility to immigrants. Instead,
we must demand that politicians strengthen and
Sunday, December 2, 2007 • Trinity’s 46th Anniversary 10 © Sermons copyrighted by Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.
enforce workplace protections for all of us. And,
politicians must revise biased international agree-
ments that beneft multinational corporations and
harm workers here in the U.S. and around the
world.
The United Church of Christ has more than 5,700
churches throughout the United States. Rooted
in the Christian traditions of congregational
governance and covenantal relationships, each
UCC setting speaks only for itself and not on
behalf of every UCC congregation. UCC members

issues, even as the UCC remains principally com-
mitted to unity in the midst of our diversity.

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

have done and been silent when we should have

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

even our own Black brothers and sisters!
Forgive us, O Lord, renew our courage and

H
ow do you combine a season of joyful “expectation” with one of “penitence?” Advent
includes both. The word, Advent, means “coming” or “arrival.” It marks the beginning
of a new year with potential for a brighter, more hopeful future. To fnd this joy, however,
we need to realize the true nature of the world – the life – into which Jesus comes. Perhaps, Isaiah
expressed the combination best, with the words, People who walked in darkness have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined. (Isaiah 9:2)
“Penitence” sounds rather forbidding, a time of sorrowful refection. Yet, it can be the darkness
that makes dawn more inspiring. Perhaps, the best part of penitence is its realism. If we are willing to
face who and what we are, “warts and all,” then we no longer need to hide in pretense or outward
show. We can see and admit both our weaknesses and strengths. All of us have fallen short at times,
both in what we do and who we are. Within our being, there is a measure of brokenness. No one
is perfect, but we can be made whole again. God heals us, not with the kind of healing that leaves a
scar, but with full renewal.
Becoming aware of this can make us savor the experience of this season. We tell the doctor what is
wrong and are given a cure. The broken parts of life come together to make a whole. We are set free
from a burden and can walk with a lighter step.
This is a good time to savor the charity that the season provides. It can be kind of an “aha!” expe-
rience. Our life comes into focus. It is like the moment when the Prodigal Son realized that he would
be better off at home than where he was, even if he returned only as a servant. He was humbled, but
later was celebrated and restored. Life, our life and the lives of others near us, can once again have
beauty and wholeness, despite the brokenness around us. We can be healed and made whole. What a
gift to receive and to give to others!

W
orld AIDS Day began in 1988 in
response to the global pandemic of
HIV/AIDS which was and still spreads,
in the words of Pastor Wright, through: (1) blood;
(2) semen; and (3) ignorance. World AIDS Day,
observed each year on December 1, is not only
about raising money to fnd a cure, but also about
raising awareness, advocacy, fghting prejudice, and
improving education around HIV/AIDS. Below,
you will fnd an excerpt from the Global Steering
Committee of the World AIDS Campaign.
Though these statistics produced by Bread for The
World are startling, we can do something about this
crisis. The United Nations Development Program
estimates that the basic health and nutrition needs
of the world’s poorest people could be met for an
additional $13 billion a year. Animal lovers in the
United States and Europe spend more than that on
pet food each year. More importantly, funds and
fnances that are continuously being spent to take
lives and oil in Iraq could be spent to preserve life in
not only this country but around the world.
As the latest report indicates, over 5,700
people died each day from AIDS-related illnesses
in 2007. Over 6,800 people are still being
infected with HIV daily, about 1,200 of whom
are children under 15; 2,900 are women 15 years
and older. The infection rates in young people
ages 15-24 remain frighteningly high. We know
these infections and these deaths are preventable
and avoidable if promises by countries to scale up
access to prevention, treatment, care and support
for all are to be fulflled by 2010. The reduced
fgures for the HIV epidemic and stabilization in
some areas of rates of infection in fact make such
universal access by 2010 more achievable.
Yet, statistics go only so far in showing the
extent of an epidemic, and this is particularly true
with HIV. Resources for information services,
health care, medicines, and support services still
fall far short of need. Stigma and discrimination
are rampant, and gender inequality, violence,
and poverty deny people access to accurate
information, prevention, testing, counseling and
treatment. While these conditions still exist, HIV
will continue to spread.
At its essence, the epidemic is about people,
not numbers. Rates of infection and deaths —
even in their millions — do not begin to reveal
the true toll of AIDS on families and friends, on
communities, on people already at the margins
of society, on youth and women in particular.
Yesterday, we celebrated the life of Anthony
Hollins, who, among other things, stood boldly for
justice and compassion with and for those affected
and infected by HIV/AIDS. Anthony’s voice was
a trumpet around the nation calling for increased
awareness, testing and justice with regard to those
infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. In Anthony’s
memory, I urge you to do three things:
Get tested, so that you know your status; 1.
Empower yourself with awareness and education 2.
about HIV/AIDS So that you will be able to
dispel the myths that abound. Our HIV/AIDS
ministry is more than willing to empower you
with information;
Be an advocate for those infected and affected 3.
with this disease.

The ReSuLTS OF A ReDeemeD LiFe
DO SOmeThiNg NiCe
One of the best ways to guarantee a great day is to focus your atten-
tion on someone else. Several years ago, the spirit of “Random acts of
kindness” captured the imagination of the country. What a simple, yet
powerful concept – the idea of doing something nice for someone else,
with no expectations of anything in return.
One morning, I had the radio on, listening for a weather forecast, the
temperature and the traffc report. As I listened, a caller telephoned in
on his cell phone to report something he had just witnessed. Several
people were standing at a bus stop in a torrential downpour. Since the
storm hadn’t been predicted, they had no protection from the rain and
were getting soaked. One woman was holding her purse over her head,
as if it would protect her. The caller reported that he had watched as a
car pulled up beside the people on the curb as the driver jumped out
of his car, handed them an umbrella, and quickly got back into the car,
moved into the fow of traffc, and was gone. The caller was touched
by what he had seen and wanted to share the story of that simple, yet
benevolent gesture with those of us who were listening.
What a beautiful example of doing something for someone else.
I recently read, “Share an umbrella with someone, and your heart
will be flled with sunshine.” The giver of the umbrella that morning
surely had a heart flled with not only sunshine, but also with love and
compassion for his fellow man. Today and everyday, be ready to share
umbrellas with those who need them.
Your Friends in Service,

Isaiah 40:1-2 Comfort, comfort my people, says
your God.
2
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and
