MARK 8:34-38 (NRSV)
34 He 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. 35 For 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. 36 For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? 37 Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? 38 Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels." ----------------------------------11:00 a.m.

ISAIAH 58:6-9b (NRSV)
6 Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? 7 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover them, and not to hide yourself from your own kin? 8 Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly; your vindicator shall go before you, the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard. 9 Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; you shall cry for help, and he will say, Here I am.

PSALM 118:5-9 (NRSV)
5 Out of my distress I called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me in a broad place. 6 With the LORD on my side I do not fear. What can mortals do to me? 7 The LORD is on my side to help me; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me. 8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to put

YOUR CHURCH NEEDS YOU!
Last Sunday, January 23rd, was what the school teachers would call a “Snow Day” for your church. Less than half the members were able to dig out of the snow dumped on us Friday and Saturday and to get to worship on Sunday. That means that less than half of the offerings we need to do the work of ministry that God has called us to do were brought into the House of God last week. As I indicated in my “State of the Church” message during the Annual Meeting of the congregation, we cannot sustain that kind of “hit” and carry out the ministry that God has given us.

Ministers for Economic and Social Justice (MRSEJ)
The Chicago chapter of the UCC M Black clergy caucus (MRSEJ) invites all UCC Clergy and Laity to Kenwood UCC on Monday evening, January 31, 2005 at 6 p.m. to hear from the executive staff of Advocate regarding a number of issues. MRSEJ has asked, as we normally do, to have a "check-in" with Advocate Health Care around specific questions raised at the November 2004 MRSEJ meeting. It has been MRSEJ's history to invite mission partners who impact our urban focus to meet, sometimes annually, and address a series of questions and to help us to be partners in ministry and mission. MRSEJ is the acronym for our Black Clergy Caucus in the United Church of Christ. It has a long and proud history which you should know about. Members of the congregation who have taken the Bible class, "Black and Christian," already know these facts. Ministers For Racial, Social and Economic Justice has a history of advocating for "the least of these." MRSJ (The Ministers for Racial and Social Justice) was the forerunner to the establishment of the Commission For Racial Justice of the United Church of C Christ (CRJ) and was responsible for many things in the progress of the UCC. Here are a few of them: 1. MRSJ produced the first national body in C our denomination (CRJ) which had a Black executive and that led to having six executive directors, at one time, who were heads of UCC national bodies (or instrumentalities) and who

Your church needs you to put in last Sunday’s offering and this Sunday’s offering today! Your church needs you to keep the promises that you gave to God when it comes to stewardship. Your church needs you to be faithful in order for the church to be what Christ called it to be.
Can I count on you? Can God count on you? Can your church count on you? The larger question becomes: Can we be the church that God called us to be? In the words of the old African proverb: The answer is in your hands! What answer will you give God today?

were also "people of Color." 2. The Ministers for Racial and Social M Justice (MRSJ) wrote the UCC Pastoral Letter on Racism. 3. MRSJ Supported Civil Rights through Dr. Martin Luther King's SCLC and assisted in getting Rev. Dr. Andrew Yong a UCC minister appointed Execuive VP of SCLC. 4. MRSJ gave full support, staff time and national educational team to the support of releasing of the Wilmington Ten. Ben Chavis became known because he was one of the Wilmington Ten. 5. MRSJ organized the first successful floor fight at the General Synod of the United Church of Christ to replace an incumbent Officer with the first African American National Elected Officer as National Secretary of the UCC. 6. MRSJ assisted in writing the first call for the UCC to be an Affirmative Action and EEO employer. 7. MRSJ assisted in writing and getting over twenty General Synod resolutions and pronouncements passed dealing with racial, criminal, environmental and economic justice. 8. MRSJ helped the Hispanic Causus to organize through CRJ and also helped it to receive funding. 9. MRSJ helped to establish COREM, The Council On Racial and Ethnic Ministries of the UCC. 10. MRSJ helped to get the 17/76 Fund

established which was the first UCC National Capital Campaign to support the historic black colleges and universities related to the United Church of Christ. 11. MRSJ assisted in the restructuring of the UCC to insure that all racial and ethnic special interest groups were represented at all levels of the structre of the Board of Directors of the Covenanted Ministries. 12. MRSJ (in 1970) assisted in the establishment of United Black Christians U (UBC), the black lay caucus of the United Church of Christ. In keeping with Dr. King's shift to a push for economic justice, MRSJ changed its name officially to MRSEJ. MRSEJ has always been a clergy organization that was open to all clergy/In-care students who decided that the goals and objectives of the organization were in harmony with their own faith journies. It has been and remains the only national clergy organization in the UCC and still is a multi-racial organization with membership open to all UCC/Disciples of Christ, Christian Church ministers who are seeking the causes of doing justice. We look forward to a great gathering of the faithful family of UCC folk on Monday, January 31, 2005, 6 p.m., at Kenwood UCC. Please come and spread the word that all are invited.

Christmas 2004, East Africa and South Africa were also hit in a very bad way! In Somalia, the death toll was over 40,000 in the last news item I read. (A news item, incidentally, in an independent media and not the corporate controlled media that only focuses on what big business and its owners say it can focus on.) The effects of the tsunami caused the loss of life and property as far south as South Africa (off the Indian ocean). Have you seen any news articles or television specials covering that part of the black world? Even in the face of such an overwhelming human tragedy, racism still rears its ugly head. Why no coverage of Somalia? Why no pictures of the devastation there? Why just the luxury Islands of Phulet and Phi Phi? Black Africans were wiped out just as instantly as Asians in Thailand and Indonesia, but black African deaths are not newsworthy. Otherwise, we would be kept abreast of the black African deaths caused by the genocide in Darfur and Sudan. The massacres and the genocide in Rwanda would not have happened had the media kept the images before the world; but I digress. Below is information from our denomination as to how you can help bring relief to those families who were hit by the tsunami.

worst natural disasters in history. The tsunami that was caused by an earthquake off the coast of Indonesia has leveled whole communities across Southeast Asia. Thus far, over 500,000 have been seriously injured and millions are homeless. More than 150,000 have died, with the toll expected to rise. The devastation caused by the tsunami has in many ways exacerbated longstanding economic and social challenges in the region. It is another sobering reminder of the importance of our ongoing advocacy for fair and just U.S. policy throughout the world, particularly as it affects those on the margins of the global economy. In response to these horrific events, the United Church of Christ has created a Tsunami Relief Fund in order to help support the relief and recovery work being organized by Church World Service and other UCC global partners. The UCC has announced a goal to raise $800,000 for relief and rehabilitation efforts. Initial support of $93,000 came from the One Great Hour of Sharing offering. For those still wondering how you can help, please consider doing one of the following: 1. Make a gift payable to your UCC congregation, marked for "Tsunami Relief" in the memo portion, to be sent to your Conference Office for recording and forwarding on to Wider Church Ministries. 2. Send direct gifts payable to Wider Church Ministries, marked in the memo portion "Asia Tsunami Relief," and send to Wider Church Ministries, 700 Prospect Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44115. 3. Make a secure on-line donation now by visiting:

http://www.ucctakeaction.org/ctt.asp?u=21491 92&l=74227 Remember to keep the millions of people impacted by this tragedy in your prayers and keep your eyes open for upcoming JPANet weekly actions as the 109th Congress sets to begin its work. Thank you for your help!
On January 24th, the “Oprah Show” did a special on the suffering of the tsunami and on the suffering of Black women (and men) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Rape is used as the weapon of choice against Black women in the Congo! 4 million have died in the Congo just as over 1 million were killed in Rwanda. The world at large has ignored Rwanda just as it is ignoring genocide taking place in the Sudan. The world at large knows nothing about the Congo (or at least they didn’t until Oprah lifted it up), and Oprah raised the question, “Why is it that no one knows?” The response was, “Because this is Africa. Because these are Black people and because they don’t count!” Unfortunately, the same mentality has been driving the media coverage of the tsunami and the suffering caused by the tsunami in Samalia, Kenya and Tanzania. One of the mission bodies whom we have supported for a quarter of a century, the Lott Carey Convention, sent out an appeal for the victims of the tsunami earlier this month. In that appeal (made by an African American organization) there was no mention of the

At least somebody “gets it!” 20 January 2005 Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., Senior Pastor Trinity United Church of Christ 400 W. 95th Street Chicago, IL 60628-1120

Dear Jeremiah: Thank you for your letter addressing the absence of reference to African victims of the Indian Ocean Tsunami. Your note of my omission is well taken. We will be directing resources to African victims of the disaster in collaboration with the All Africa Conference of Churches with whom we have partnership around continental-wide support for HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care. They are having a press conference on 21 January 2005 in Nairobi to unfold their fact-finding visits and strategies for support and presence in Somalia, Kenya and Tanzania. My struggle was to communicate rapidly with the information at hand. This haste, however, left a gaping hole in my appeal. Thanks, again for raising this problem that I should have recognized earlier. Thanks, also, for your partnership in this ministry. On mission with Christ,
David Emmanuel Goatley

Daryl Thomas Brings Back the Gold!
Last year at the end of the year, one of our members, Daryl Thomas, asked for your help. Daryl was the “miracle child” who lost his hearing, but who continued to be an excellent athlete and a star in the arena of basketball. In 1999, Daryl was the First Team AllStar Center at the United States of America’s Deaf Sports Federation Team, leading his team to the National Championship. In 2001, he was the Most Valuable Player and the First Team All-Star Center, repeatedly leading his teams to National Championships in both 2001 and 2002. In 2004 he was, again, the First Team All-Star Center and was also selected to go to the Olympics in Melbourne, Australia, and play with the United States of America’s Men’s Deaflympics Basketball Team. Each team member, however, had to raise his own money for airfare, for accommodations and for all of the incidentals pertaining to the trip to Australia. You, the members of Trinity made Daryl’s trip possible! Because of your kindness and your faithfulness, Daryl not only went to Australia, Daryl’s team won First Place in the Olympics! Daryl brought home the Gold! Daryl, Simone and Amani want to thank you for your support and for your love and your prayers. Daryl is a Special Education teacher at the Nancy B. Jefferson Alternative School. ago) and it contracts the sentence, “God be with you.” Actually, it is saying, “God be with ye!” In both English and Spanish the parting words are invoking the presence of God in the lives of those loved ones who are leaving us and going away from us. That is the prayer and that is the expression that we extend today to Rosalie Metcalfe and to Deacon Andre Ward and his family. Rosalie is getting married next week and moving back to Swartz Creek, Michigan. Rosalie has served our church faithfully ever since she moved into the Chicago area. Rosalie has served me personally as her work with United Airlines has enabled her to help me with flights and with reservations when I was told there were none! Rosalie has been seen Sunday after Sunday serving with the Usher Ministry for over ten years! We praise God for her marriage and we praise God for this new phase in her life which will be a blessing; but we will miss her tremendously! To Rosalie we say, “Go with God and may God be with you!” Deacon Andre Ward and his wife, Kathy, are moving this week to Akron, Ohio. Mrs. Kathy Ward is from Akron. Her family still lives there. Deacon Ward first came to our church because of his position in the area of security. He was the top notch security person for one of the major downtown buildings and his diligence and excellence caught the eye of our Long Range Planning Ministry. Since he has been here, however, he moved from security to spirituality! Andre is one of our “spirited deacons.” He, Ray McDaniel and I are the “steppers” in the Deacon Ministry. His faithfulness in visiting the sick and in comforting the bereaved have blessed our church tremendously! To Andre and Kathy we also say, “Go with God and may God be with you!” Please be sure to give our loved ones a Holy hug this Sunday and wish them well as they leave us for new fields of service and new phases in their lives.

JUSTICE
Micah 6:8

JUSTICE MINISTRIES
presents

By Rev. Reginald Williams

“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhuman.” These words were uttered by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1966, when he brought the civil rights movement to Chicago. Health care does not only consist of the treatment of recipients (patients) of health care. Health care also deals with how those who deliver health care (workers) are treated. Mistreatment of health care deliverers directly affects the quality of treatment for health care recipients. Today, at 2:30 p.m. in the sanctuary, you will hear testimonies of health care recipients and health care deliverers as to their respective treatment by Advocate Health Care. I invite you to come and share in the stories from the lips, lives and hearts of those who work for Advocate Health Care systems. I am purposely not including any statistics, opinions, or other verbiage about Advocate Health Care, because I want you to come and hear the stories for yourself. I want you to come and hear the cries for justice and liberation that leap off the lips of the laborers and patients in the Advocate Health Care system. Afterward, I invite you to move to action in seeking justice for the workers and patients. ACTION ITEMS: 1. Come to the Hospital Jubilee Forum in the sanctuary at 2:30 p.m. 2. DO NOT SHOP AT WAL-MART OR SAM’S CLUB THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Christopher Columbus and others set in motion a concept of divine White right/manifest destiny — the assumption that the people of Europe had rights over other people.

STEWARDSHIP
A LOT OF WORK TO DO
If Jesus walked up to you and said: “Come follow me - I have a lot of work to do and I really need your help,” would you tell Him to get lost because you are just too busy in your pursuit of personal possessions and worldly comfort? Every day is a time to reflect on all that God has given you and a time to share and care about others. Have you given any consideration to helping Jesus carry out His works in your own church? THERE’S A HITCH TO IT! With his thumb, a hitchhiker says: “You furnish the gas, car, repairs, upkeep and insurance; and I’ll ride with you. But if you have an accident, I’ll sue you for damages!” Sounds pretty one-sided, but one wonders how many hitchhikers there are in churches and organizations. Many seem to say, “You go to the meetings, serve on boards and committees, and take care of the things that need doing; and I’ll go along for the ride! If things don’t happen to suit my fancy, I will complain, criticize and probably get out and hitchhike with another group.” Hitchhiker or driver - which kind of member are you?
