Yield not to temptation
Verse i Yield not to temptation, For yielding is sin, Each vict’ry will help you, Some other to win; Fight valiantly onward, Evil passions subdue, Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through. Chorus Ask the Savior to help you, Comfort strengthen and keep you; He is willing to aid you, He will carry you through. Verse ii Shun evil companions, Bad language disdain, God’s name hold in rev’rence, Nor take it in vain; Be thoughtful and earnest, Kindhearted and true, Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through. (Repeat chorus) Verse iii To him that o’er cometh, God given a crown, Through faith we will conquer, though often cast down; He who is our Savior, Our strength will renew, Look ever to Jesus, He will carry you through. (Repeat chorus)

What a friend We haVe in Jesus
Verse i What a Friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear, What a privilege to carry, Ev’ry thing to God in prayer, Oh what peace we often forfeit, Oh what needless pain we bear, All because we do not carry Ev’ry thing to God in prayer Verse ii Have we trials and temptations, Is there trouble anywhere, We should never be discouraged, Take it to the Lord in prayer! Can we find a friend so faithful, Who will all our sorrows share? Jesus knows our ev’ry weakness Take it to the Lord in prayer Verse iii Are we weak and heavy laden, Cumbered with a load of care? Precious Savior, still our refuge, Take it to the Lord in prayer. Do thy friends despise, forsake thee? Take it to the Lord in prayer? In His Arms He’ll take and shield thee, Thou wilt find a solace there.

abC to shoW uCC film on Water
roubled Waters , an hour-long documentary written and produced by the United Church of Christ, will be aired nationally on ABC television beginning on October , 006. It portrays some of the challenges faced by people and nations everywhere with regard to access to clean, safe drinking water and adequate sanitation. The film addresses the increasing privatization of water resources around the world and raises disturbing questions about who has access to this precious resource. “Water is a gift from God and a human right,” affirms executive producer Wally Ryan Kuroiwa, “not a commodity available only to those who can pay for it.” Produced as a cooperative venture of Justice and Witness Ministries, Wider Church Ministries, and Proclamation, Identity, and Communication Team in the UCC, this provocative film was shot in Africa, South America, the Middle East, and the United States, and is narrated by the legendary actor Lynn Redgrave, a UCC member. A previous documentary produced by Justice and Witness Ministries’ Wally Ryan Kuroiwa, Strong Roots, Fragile Farms, which tackles concerns about globalization’s impact on family farms, was nominated for an Emmy award. Please check with your local ABC affiliate for air time. Some of the major air times are avaiable at http://www.troubledwatersdoc.com, where you can also find other interesting information about water and the documentary.

hebreWs 4:12–16 (KJV)

1 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 14Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

When i Was in prison…

T

he words of Jesus concerning those who are truly followers of His teach us that when He was hungry we fed Him. When He was thirsty, we gave Him something to drink. When He was sick, we ministered unto Him and when He was in prison, we visited Him. When you read the Lord’s words in Matthew you will see where those to whom He was talking asked Him when did they see Him hungry or thirsty, sick or in prison? Jesus responded to them by saying, “In as much as you have done it unto the least of these, my little ones, you have done it unto Me.” Our Prison Ministry has taken the Lord’s words seriously. They do prison visitation on a regular basis. Our Prison Ministry visits Joliet Prison, Dixon Prison and the federal facility in Wisconsin. Not all of us can be a part of the Prison Ministry and actually do physical prison visitation. We can write to prisoners, however! Almost every year I have to put out a call for persons who are interested in corresponding with prisoners, so that the correspondence load does not become unbearable. Our Prison Ministry (and your Pastor!) stays in touch with over thirty prisoners a month. That is made possible by members of the congregation who take five to ten minutes a week to sit down and write our prisoners. Every time I send out a “plea” for prison ministers I get ten to fifteen people who say, “Yes.” Within six months time, however, that number who said “yes” has dwindled down to one or two faithful members who stick to it and keep writing. The Prison Ministry has just made me aware of the fact that they need some more writing volunteers for this year. The large number who volunteered last year is now down to under five faithful correspondents! Sunday, October 22, 2006 6

Will you volunteer to write a prisoner? Will you volunteer to be a representative of Christ in the life of man or a woman who is incarcerated? If you are interested in becoming one of our prison correspondents, please contact one of the following: Melvern Williams, Gail Hardy, Reverend Dee Clark, by calling the Prison Ministry, 77-96-5650 ext. 886. Thank you in advance for all you can do and all you will do to help those who are incarcerated stay in touch with “the outside” and to hold on to hope Sincerely and respectfully yours,

eleCtion 2006 CountdoWn; Voter rights

A

s Election Day, Tuesday, November 7, draws nearer, it is important to remind registered voters what they need to know when they go to the polls. Especially for newly registered and first-time voters, the process can seem a little intimidating. Add to that the controversies surrounding the 000 and 004 election procedures, and even more recent difficulties with new voting equipment in 006 primary races, it is all the more essential to empower voters with information on their rights and what they can expect at the polling place. Here is how you can help! Help Voters Understand Their Rights: 1. Visit the League of Women Voters’ website at http://www.lwv.org to find your local election board to find out what voters need to bring to the polls and what to do if they do not appear on the voter list. Many states are now requiring IDs. In any case, it is good to bring an ID along. © Sermons copyrighted by Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.

pastOr’s paG e 
. In your Get-Out-The-Vote phone calls and announcements, remind people to check to make sure they know where their polling station is located. This information can be found on your voter identification card. You can also check the LWV website to find it. Every state has different cut-off dates for voter registration. Know the last day for people to register to vote in your area! 3. Let people know that if they get to the polls and find they are not on the list of registered voters, they can request a provisional ballot in many states. 4. Find out what the laws are in your state regarding the rights of formerly convicted people to vote. Individuals who have served their jail sentence and have been released from prison often may not know they have the right to vote in many jurisdictions. 5. Let people know that they can always ask a poll worker for assistance if they make a mistake on their ballot or have a question about using a voting machine. 6. Inform people that if they are in line at the time the polls close, the law requires that they be allowed to vote. Stay and vote!

oCtober is domestiC ViolenCe aWareness month
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 control over another person in the context of a current or former dating, family, household, or caregiving relationship. Domestic Violence is never “just a private family matter.” It affects our entire society. Family violence costs the nation from 5 to 10 billion dollars annually in medical expenses, police and court costs, shelters and foster care, sick leave, absenteeism, and non-productivity. 80% of violent criminals report having witnessed violence in the home as children. Over 50% of all homeless women and children in this country are fleeing domestic violence, thus contributing to the high rates of poverty. Social science research shows there is a strong connection between violence in the home and the way society normalizes violence in our local communities and on a global scale. Domestic Violence is everyone’s business. “The ruin of a nation begins in the homes of its people.” (African Proverb) 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 information regarding all the domestic violence services, including shelters, legal assistance, and counseling available in the city and suburbs. Please visit the Clothesline Project in the upstairs Narthex after service today. For information, call Anika Sterling (773) 297-1027 or Kenya Jackson (773) 536-0905.

he next time you see Geese heading south for the winter flying along in V formation you might be interested in knowing what science has discovered about why they fly that way. It has been learned that as each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in a V formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own. Christians who share a common direction and a sense of community can also get where they are going quicker and easier because they are traveling on the thrust and uplift of one another. Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go alone, and quickly gets back into formation, to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird immediately in front. If we have as much sense as a goose, we will stay in formation with those who are headed the same way we are going. When the lead goose gets tired, he rotates back in the wing and another goose flies point. It pays to take turns doing hard jobs with people at church or with geese flying south. The geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed. What do we say when we honk from behind? Finally, when a goose gets sick or falls out, two geese fall out of formation and follow him down to help and protect him until he dies or is able to fly again. The geese who helped each other shared. Sharing is both serving and giving. It’s a part of our “stewardship.” We believe that it is the privilege of the Christian to dedicate what he has, what he is, to God. We commonly speak of time, talents and possessions. How we use these is a choice we make which indicates the depth of our faith. Your Friends in Service, The Stewardship Ministry Constance A. King, Editor | James D.

By Rev. Reginald Williams, Jr.

here has been much ado about the recent passage of HB 4050. The name of the bill is Predatory Lending Database Pilot. The Housing Ministry of Trinity United Church of Christ met with members of the State Senate of Illinois, Senators Jacqueline Collins and Kwame Raoul (our member), and the Department of Financial Regulations’ Phil Dalmage, in order to understand the bill and its ramifications. The goal of this volume of To Do Justice is to provide information as given to us about HB 4050. In sum, the pilot program establishes a screening program for mortgage borrowers in the Southwest portion of Chicago. Here are the requirements: Borrowers seeking a loan through a mortgage broker or loan originator for a home within the 10 targeted zip codes will have to undergo HUD approved and sponsored credit counseling, if they fall within the following mandatory counseling criteria: 1. The borrower has a FICO score less than 60 2. The borrower has a FICO score of 61-650 combined with any or all of the following factors a. The home was financed within 1 months of the date of the current loan application; b. The payment for the loan being applied for is “interest only”; c. The interest rate is adjustable within three years; d. The loan uses a stated income for the borrower, rather than verifying the borrower’s income through other means (tax return, pay stubs, etc.)

tO dO J Us t ic e
3. The loan includes any of the following, regardless of the borrower’s FICO score: a. Prepayment penalty b. Results in negative amortization c. Total points or fees paid by borrowers at or before closing will exceed 5% The major question asked is why the Southwest portion of Chicago? Why not all of the state? Why not some areas of the city and other areas of the state? According to Senators Collins and Raoul, and according to Phil Dalmage of the Department of Financial Regulation, 48% of all of the foreclosures in the state of Illinois are in Chicago. Further, most of these foreclosures are in black and brown neighborhoods. The bill was proposed by Mike Madigan, and his own zip code is included. (Included zip codes are 6060, 1, 3, 8, 9, 3, 36, 38, 43, and 5). Even with that reasoning, the appearance of racism is present in selecting only black and brown neighborhoods for this pilot program, as if foreclosures are not occurring across the whole state. This point was raised with the state delegation. In response to this, it was stated that the pilot program has a four year term. However, after the first year, zip codes can be added or deleted from the program. Because it is a pilot program, none of this is written in stone. Senator Collins also vowed, after the reports from the first year are returned, to fight to make the pilot program statewide. Furthermore, with no zip codes specified in the legislation itself, there is also the possibility of doing partial zip codes, as there are some zip codes where certain areas have high
Sunday, October 22, 2006 10

foreclosure rates, while other areas in the same zip code do not. (Zip codes cannot be specified in the legislation because that would amount to legislative redlining). Another interesting move that has occurred since the bill has gone into effect is that some bankers and mortgage brokers have decided not to lend in the zip codes affected by the program. This apparently speaks to their motives for predatory lending in those areas. Lastly, Senator Collins shared the proponents and opponents of the bill. Opponents to the bill were people who generally could benefit from the predatory lending practices. These included groups like Mortgage lenders, Realtors, and Ameriquest (currently in court, being sued for predatory lending). Proponents of the bill include groups like the Attorney General’s Office, AARP, Citizens Action Illinois, and a host of community organizations. Hopefully, this column enlightens and educates us on the issue of HB 4050. In the coming weeks, we will be hosting a teach-in with legislators and housing professionals to further educate the congregation and community on this very important piece of legislation.
