LIFT HIM UP
VERSE 1 How to reach the masses, men of ev’ry birth, For an answer Jesus gave the key: “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, Will draw all men unto Me.” CHORUS Lift Him up, Lift Him up, Still He speaks from eternity: “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, Will draw all men unto Me.” VERSE II Oh! The world is hungry for the Living Bread, Lift the Savior up for them to see; Trust Him, and do not doubt the words that He said, “I’ll draw all men unto Me.” (Repeat chorus) VERSE III Don’t exalt the preacher, don’t exalt the pew, Preach the gospel simple, full and free; Prove Him and you will find that promise is true, “I’ll draw all men unto Me.” (Repeat chorus) VERSE IV Lift Him up by living as a Christian ought, Let the world in you the Savior see; Then men will gladly follow Him who once taught, “I’ll draw all men unto Me.” (Repeat chorus)

AT THE CROSS
VERSE 1 Alas! And did my Savior bleed? And did my Sov’reign die? Would He devote that sacred head For such a worm as I? CHORUS At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light, And the burden of my heart rolled away It was there by faith I received my sight, And now I am happy all the day! VERSE II Was it for crimes that I have done He groaned upon the tree? Amazing pity! Grace unknown! And love beyond degree! (Repeat chorus) VERSE III Well might the sun in darkness hide And shut His glories in, When Christ, the mighty Maker, died For man the creature’s sin. (Repeat chorus) VERSE IV But drops of grief can ne’er repay The debt of love I owe: Here, Lord, I give myself away‘Tis all that I can do! (Repeat chorus)

confession of sins

MARk 8:31–37 (NRSV)
Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. 33But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.” 34He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 35For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. 36For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? 37Indeed, what can they give in return for their life?

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 sacrifice. Hear us, we beseech Thee, as we come to You in love and worship giving Your name the praise forevermore. U U U U U U U U U U 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.

AN EXCITING MONTH!
July is an exciting month at Trinity United Church of Christ! This is the month that is filled with powerful worship services, awesome learning experiences and marvelous moments for drawing closer to the Lord. Thirty-five summers ago I stumbled on a “churchgoer’s secret.” Thirty-five years ago I took an entire month off in the summer for my vacation. I was a brand new pastor. That summer taught me quite painfully that the members of the church also take an entire month off when they know the pastor is not going to be there. I really should not say the “members” of the church. I should say people who attend the church. Church members come to church regardless of who is preaching, who is present and who is not present. Church members care about the church. They are there to worship Christ and not the person standing behind the Pulpit! The secret I learned, however, was to be in the Pulpit during the summer just as the pastors (of the churches that I visited while on vacation) were in their pulpits that summer! For thirty-four years (since that fateful summer of 1972), I have been in our Pulpit every summer. In addition, I have also learned how to schedule exciting options for ministry during the summer. As a result, instead of the attendance going down, our attendance has gone up each summer. From 1973 until 1978, I had churchwide retreats during the summer. I called on all of the officers and members to study the Word of God, to grapple with me over the leadership issues facing us in the 1970s and to come to grips with what it meant to try to be a servant of Christ in a country and a culture which cared less about Christ! Beginning in 1979, I started our churchwide Revival during the summer; and to this day, we still have our Revival in the third week of July. Across the years we have had Roscoe D. Cooper, Charles Walker, William Augustus Jones, Tony Campbell, Charles Adams and James Forbes preach our annual revivals each summer. After moving into our new facility at 400 West 95th Street, Freddy Haynes took over the task of bringing a fresh Word from the Lord each July during our churchwide Revival. Charles Adams and James Forbes preached one year in this “new” Sanctuary, but Freddy Haynes has been our annual revivalist ever since. We anxiously await Freddy’s return on the third Sunday in July.

More than six years ago, we started having Youth Revivals in the summer also. Our annual Youth Revival will start on the fifth Sunday of July and run into the opening days of the month of August. This is an exciting month for us! For more than a decade, we have traveled as a congregation to West Africa, to East Africa, to Brazil and to South Africa. July is the month when the persons traveling with the congregation begin their reading assignments and preparing for a trip to the Cradle of Civilization. It is on these trips that the members of Trinity and their guests study the Word of God, learn the history of our sojourn “in a strange land” and “connect the dots” between the story of the people of faith in God’s Word and our story as the people of God in the 21st century. This is an exciting time for our church! In addition to the two Revivals (or sandwiched in between them, there are several other exciting things that are happening in our church this month. This month, we welcome back the Rev. Earl B. Mason and the choir of the Bible Based Fellowship Church of Temple Terrace in Tampa, Florida. This month, we also welcome back to our pulpit the Rev. Dr. Jerry Cannon (brother of Katie Cannon—the world famous womanist theologian in the Presbyterian Church). We also host our annual Kujichagulia service during which we lift up the Ministry of those who are physically and mentally impaired. July is also the month when we will have a “walk through” and a dedication of our “House of Kicks” property and “officially” welcome to our church family Rev. and Mrs. Otis Moss III and their children! This is an exciting month at Trinity! I invite you to pray along with us as we enter this month with high anticipation and great expectations. Sincerely yours, —Pastor Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.

MARk CLEMENTS – 25 yEARS IN PRISON FOR A CRIME HE dIdN’T COMMIT
FACTS OF THE CASE The facts presented below are all contained in the transcript of Mark Clements’ trial or in police reports. On June 17, 1981, at 2:00 a.m., a fire broke out in a building owned by Eleanor Scott at 6602 S. Wentworth Ave. in Chicago. Four people, Robert T. Watson, James and Annabelle Moore, and Isadore Tucker, died in that fire, all of carbon monoxide asphyxiation and smoke inhalation. They were in an apartment on the 2nd floor. Fire investigators determined that the fire was a result of arson. One of the victim’s clothes smelled of gasoline. His body had suffered abrasions and a laceration. The pathologist who performed the autopsies testified that the laceration was not the result of a stab wound. On June 25, 1981, police arrested Mark Clements, aged 16, during a “disturbance” in the neighborhood. Detectives Daniel McWeeny and James Higgins had been investigating the fire. They had spoken to Derrick Banks, Ramona Patton and James Robinson, and they testified that they were looking for Clements based on things witnesses had said. Fire officials testified that, in fact, there were two fires going when they arrived at the building, one in the front stairway and one

outside on the back porch. The two fires were not connected in any way. They found two bottles filled with gasoline on the rear porch of the building, one on the second floor and one on the ground floor. These were the only containers found containing gasoline. The second floor rear was inaccessible from the ground level because of another fire that had burned the stairs two weeks earlier. 25 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit • Although only 16, Mark Clements was tried as an adult and sentenced to four life sentences plus 30 years in the state penitentiary. He was beaten repeatedly by one police officer. Some of the detectives who interrogated Clements have been implicated in the Jon Burge Police Torture Case. After over 10 hours of this treatment, he made a “confession” to involvement in the fire. At his trial, Clements repudiated this “confession,” proclaimed his innocence, and recounted the beatings he had received from the police. There were no witnesses and no material evidence presented against Clements at his trial linking him to the crime. Clements was functionally illiterate at the time of his arrest. Mark Clements’ case is currently on appeal in the Cook County Criminal Court.

THE RESULTS OF A REdEEMEd LIFE Castles In The Sand
My daughter and I love walking on the beaches. Once in a while, we come across a magnificently built sand castle or some other silicon work of art. It is obvious that someone spent a long time and much effort to construct the edifice in the sand. The interesting thing is that when we walk by the next day, there is no sign of the work. The tide has washed away all that hard work, or someone else has delighted in demolishing all that was done. No matter how hard we try, all we own here on this earth will soon be gone. If our treasures are found in things made with our hands, it will eventually be washed away without a trace. What use will riches be in eternity? Your money has life in it now. If you use it for God, it spreads, grows and brings things to life. If you keep it, little good will result, and eventually it will be washed away, too. The Stewardship Ministry Constance A. King, Editor James Butler, Chairperson
