JOHN 12:27-37 (NRSV)

27 “Now my soul is troubled. And what should I say - 'Father, save me from this hour'? No, it is for this reason that I have come to this hour. 28 Father, glorify your name." Then a voice came from heaven, "I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again." 29 The crowd standing there heard it and said that it was thunder. Others said, "An angel has spoken to him." 30 Jesus answered, "This voice has come for your sake, not for mine. 31 Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out. 32 And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself." 33 He said this to indicate the kind of death he was to die. 34 The crowd answered him, "We have heard from the law that the Messiah remains forever. How can you say that the Son of Man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of Man?" 35 Jesus said to them, "The light is with you for a little longer. Walk while you have the light, so that the darkness may not overtake you. If you walk in the darkness, you do not know where you are going. 36 While you have the light, believe in the light, so that you may become children of light." After Jesus had said this, he departed and hid from them. 37 Although he had performed so many signs in their presence, they did not believe in him.

message, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" 39 And so they could not believe, because Isaiah also said, 40 "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, so that they might not look with their eyes, and understand with their heart and turn - and I would heal them." 41 Isaiah said this because he saw his glory and spoke about him. 42 Nevertheless many, even of the authorities, believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they did not confess it, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved human glory more than the glory that comes from God.

12 The next day the great crowd that had come to the festival heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. 13 So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord - the King of Israel!" 14 Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it; as it is written: 15 "Do not be afraid, daughter of Zion. Look, your king is coming, sitting on a donkey's colt!" 16 His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written of him and had been done to him. 17 So the crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to testify. 18 It was also because they heard that he had performed this sign that the crowd went to meet him. 19 The Pharisees then said to one another, "You see, you can do nothing. Look, the world has gone after him!"

HOLY WEEK
Saturday (the day before Palm Sunday), we began our churchwide celebration of Holy Week, the Passion of Jesus Christ and the sacred observances of His last few days on earth. Today, Sunday, March 20th, in addition to our two morning Palm Sunday services, the fantastic singing group, SPIRIT, will be in concert here in the sanctuary. I am inviting all of the 11 o’clock worshippers to stay for that concert and I am asking all of our Hour of Power worshippers to come early to support SPIRIT. We will close out Palm Sunday with our 6:00 p.m. Palm Sunday services. On Maundy Thursday, Thursday, March 24th, we will gather as a congregation at 7:00 p.m. to observe the Institution of the Lord’s Supper. It was on that Thursday night (before Good Friday) that Jesus “took bread and broke it, after He had given thanks!” On Friday, March 25th (Good Friday), we will have the Seven Last Words of Christ preached from this pulpit. Bishop Vashti McKenzie, Rev. Tyron Gordon, Rev. Otis Moss III, Rev. Dr. Alison Gise Johnson, Rev. Dr. Dennis Proctor, Father Michael Pfleger and Rev. Dr. Rudolph McKissick will preach with power from 12:00 noon until 3:00 p.m. At seven o’clock in the evening on Good Friday we will join Father Michael Pfleger and the members of the Community of St. Sabina for their Seven Last Words service. I will be preaching there. Rev. Otis Moss III and Rev. Dr. Rudolph McKissick will also be preaching there.

SUPPORT THE REAL ACT
Dear Trinity Member, The Responsible Education About Life (REAL) Act, S 368/HR 768, was introduced in Congress in February to address the unbalanced and misleading approach to sexuality education currently being taken by the Bush Administration. Since 1996, tax dollars have been used to fund "abstinenceonly-until-marriage" sexuality programs. In his 2006 budget, the President has requested $206 million for narrowly-focused, often

medically inaccurate programs. Many of the current, federally-funded programs contain errors, distortions and stereotypes. The programs are prohibited from discussing contraceptives unless they are portrayed as ineffective. The programs may not talk about reproductive choice or sexual orientation. The REAL Act would allow states and local communities to choose what type of sexuality education they want to provide. A Kaiser Family Foundation poll shows that 93 percent of Americans support teaching comprehensive sexuality education in high schools, and 83 percent of Americans support teaching comprehensive sexuality education in middle/junior high schools. Information is power. Education makes for better choices. There are resources that provide responsible, comprehensive, ageappropriate, accurate and value-based human sexuality education. The Our Whole Lives curriculum, published by the United Church of Christ and the Unitarian Universalist Association, is widely regarded as one of the best age-span resources available. Through such resources, children and youth are provided with information grounded in the values of selfworth, responsibility, sexual health, justice and inclusivity. This information can help save lives. Sex is everywhere - our children and youth see it on TV, on the Internet, in magazines and in music. Parents and caregivers are asking for help in teaching about our precious gift of human sexuality, and most do not want sexuality education based on fear, shame and misinformation. Contact your members of Congress and urge them to cosponsor the REAL Act, if they have not yet done so. To send a fax or ePalm Sunday, March 20, 2005

CONGRATULATIONS TO EBONEE DAWSON!
On my anniversary Sunday, I shared with the congregation during all three services Ebonee Dawson's 16-yearold world-view with the congregation. When I read her Academic Decathlon speech, I was impressed. I wanted you, our members, to hear what a 16-year-old thought. I have some additional good news for you. Ebonee received a perfect score of 1,000 for her speech! Her school, the Chicago High School of Agricultural Science, placed second in the state, but Ebonee won first place for her presentation! Our thanksgiving is given on this Sunday to Deacon Jiles for giving Ebonee some pointers. Our thanksgiving is given this Sunday to Ebonee for being a teenager with Christian convictions. Most of all, our thanksgiving is given this Sunday to God for blessing us with a teenager like Ebonee in our midst. Be sure to give her a "high five" today. Sincerely and respectfully yours, Pastor Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.

JOINT ECUMENICAL STATEMENT ON BUSH'S 2006 FEDERAL BUDGET
Tuesday, March 08, 2005 [Episcopal News Service] We are preachers, and so, in explaining our opposition to the 2006 Federal Budget that President Bush has sent to Congress, it seems only fitting that we should begin with Scripture. There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. And at his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who longed to satisfy his hunger with what fell from the rich man's table; even the dogs would come and lick his sores. The poor man died and was carried away by the angels to be with Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried. In Hades, where he was being tormented, he looked up and saw Abraham far away with Lazarus by his side. He called out, "Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am in agony in these flames." The passage comes from the 16th chapter of the Gospel according to Luke, and it contains a warning that should deeply trouble those of us who live in a wealthy nation. As the story continues, the rich man implores Abraham to raise Lazarus from the dead and send him to the house of his brothers so that they may be spared his torment.
Palm Sunday, March 20, 2005

"They have Moses and the prophets," Abraham replies. "They should listen to them." The rich man says, "No, father Abraham; but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent." And Abraham answers, "If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced even if someone rises from the dead." In telling this story, Jesus makes clear that perpetrating economic injustice is among the gravest of sins. Yet self-interest is so deeply ingrained in each one of us, He says, that we will not renounce it, even should someone rise from the dead. Jesus was right about that. It was He who rose from the dead to save us from greed and myriad other sins. Yet those who have much continue feasting, even as those who have little remain at their gates. Like many Americans, we read our daily newspaper through the lens of faith, and when we see injustice, it is our duty to say so. The 2006 Federal Budget that President Bush has sent to Capitol Hill is unjust. It has much for the rich man and little for Lazarus. According to the White House's own numbers, this budget would move 300,000 people off food stamps in the next five years. It would cut the funds that allow 300,000 children to receive day care. It would reduce funding for Medicaid by $45 billion over the next ten years, and this at a time when 45 million Americans - the highest level on record - are already without health insurance.

These cuts would be alarming in any circumstances, but in the context of the 2006 budget, they are especially troubling. For even as it reduces aid to those in poverty, this budget showers presents on the rich. If passed in its current form, it would make permanent tax cuts that have bestowed nearly threequarters of the "relief" on one-fifth of the county. If passed in its current form, it would include whopping new cuts that would benefit, almost exclusively, those with household incomes of more than $200,000 per year. If passed in its current form, it would take Jesus' teaching on economic justice and stand it on its head. Some contend that these cuts will stimulate the economy and improve life for all Americans, but we believe that stocking the rich man's larder is a peculiar strategy for getting Lazarus more food. Not only does this policy rest on dubious economic assumptions, but it asks the poor to pay the cost for a prosperity in which they may never share. Some contend that works of mercy are not the business of the government but of private citizens. But in what other area of our national life do we formulate policies uninformed by our deepest values? Some contend that with the proper support faith-based charities will step forward to fill the gap created by the government's retreat. But this flies in the face of the lessons that we, as religious leaders, have learned first hand. Our

churches operate thousands of charities from the parochial to the international. Believe us when we tell you that neither we, nor our Evangelical brothers and sisters, nor our friends of other faiths have anywhere near the resources to turn back the rising tide of poverty in this country. We know that programs, whether governmental or non-profit, can change people's lives for the better. New situations challenge us to respond to new conditions and to support those who are in transition out of poverty. Sadly, the 2006 budget will send more people searching for food in cupboards that, quite frequently, are bare. Our churches will continue their ameliorative ministries. But it is not enough for us as a Church or a society to be merciful. We must remember the admonition of the prophet Micah, “And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God?” Micah's choice of verbs is instructive. We are not to love justice or preach justice, we are to do justice - to act, and, when necessary, to struggle. We urge the members of our churches, of other churches and other faiths, and all whose conscience compels them to do justice to join us in opposing this budget. Write to your representatives. Write to your local newspaper. Join the organizations working to obtain justice for the 36 million Americans living below the poverty line, the 45 million without health

insurance and the unknown millions struggling to keep their families from slipping into these ever increasing ranks.

ANOTHER SNEAKY CONGRESSIONAL MOVE!
The biblical call to be stewards of God's creation has led people of many faith traditions to oppose opening the pristine Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil or gas exploration. This national treasure, an ecosystem virtually in its original form, is currently under threat by a backdoor maneuver in the Senate to slip a drilling proposal into the budget process, thus avoiding full debate. ANWR has been successfully defeated in Congress over the past several years. However, if the Senate and House proponents of drilling in the Arctic are successful in inserting the drilling proposal into this year's budget, it cannot be debated. Opponents, including both Republicans and Democrats, contend that a measure which constitutes major policy change such as the drilling proposal deserves full debate and a vote on its own merits. Let your senators know that you oppose opening ANWR to drilling and development, and further oppose any attempt to slip major policy decisions past the American public. To send an e-mail message to your senators contact: http://www.ucctakeaction.org/ctt.asp?u=214 9192&l=82656 Don't be a "silent" majority. Let your Congress hear from you this week.

JUSTICE
Micah 6:8

By Rev. Reginald Williams

In his book, Intellectual Warfare, Dr. Jacob H. Carruthers states, “The Black Thinkers who have analyzed the core of the European Worldview have, as it were, become intellectual maroons. Like the maroons who have declared their freedom in fact through their actions, the intellectual maroons have declared their freedom through their publicly stated thoughts.” This week, I was directed by an acquaintance to view a website on Amazon.com. On Amazon’s website was a list of books from a reviewer of Amazon.com. The reviewer put together a list of books, and entitled it “ …Black History: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.” The reviewer identifies the “good” as books like, Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. DuBois, The Mis-Education of the Negro by Carter G. Woodson, and Martin & Malcolm in America by James Cone, among others. The “bad” books were books such as Killing Rage by bell hooks, Soul On Ice by Eldridge Cleaver, Black Power by Kwame Ture, and Autobiography of Malcolm X. This reviewer, whose alias was Silver Sun, placed a subtitle on the books deemed “ugly” by this reviewer. The complete title to this section read “The Ugly - Lies, Distortions, HalfTruths, Frauds, and Paranoid Conspiracy Theories.” Books under this heading were, among others, The Painful Demise of Eurocentrism by Molefi Asante, and The Falsification of Afrikan Consciousness by Amos Wilson. While Silver Sun was accurate on some of the classics deemed as “The Good,” Silver Sun’s categorization of “The Bad” and “The Ugly” are simply racist and unacceptable. Dr. Jacob Carruthers’ words ring true. This, in no uncertain terms, is
Palm Sunday, March 20, 2005

Intellectual Warfare. Those who have dared to critique Eurocentric thought have been cast as “intellectual maroons.” Moreover, those writings and actions which serve to undermine and de-legitimate European-centered thought are considered illegitimate by the wider society, dominant culture and those who strive to be a part of that dominant culture. Now, I do not know if Silver Sun, the reviewer, is black or white. Moreover, it really doesn’t matter whether he is black or white, because either way he appears to be entrenched in the Eurocentric manner of operating. In fact, Dr. Carruthers also stated in Intellectual Warfare that those who have waged the war to liberate African history and culture have had to battle against at least the following two entities: (1) European intellectuals on the international scene, and (2) an internal civil war against “colonized African spokespersons trained by Europeans to undermine African independence.” I bring this to the light in order to urge you not to allow anyone to determine for you what is valuable for you and your people. European-centered thought seeks to discredit and disprove anything which challenges the European-structured manner of thinking and operating. Learn your own story in order to tell your own story. Also learn your own story in order to critique those entities which try to discredit your story. c Action Items: 1. DO NOT SHOP AT WAL-MART OR SAM’S CLUB

Lenten Meditation #7 Palm Sunday
LIVING THE GOOD LIFE

Daring To Feel Joy

A good life should include joy and satisfaction. God did not plan for us to be struggling and overburdened all the time. When Jesus spoke of the flowers of the field and the birds of the air, he revealed pleasure that he had found in the life around him. Not all our days will be happy and productive, but there must be rewards to keep us going. We need times of joyful celebration. Palm Sunday is a somewhat confusing event. Jesus’ opponents were disturbed and told him to quiet his followers. The disciples, though, shouted all the more loudly, “Hosanna! What a blessing we have in welcoming the One who comes in God’s name!” The disciples deserved a reward for their faithfulness. Jesus celebrated the fact that his mission was being accomplished. To be sure, there were dangers that they knew were around them, but celebration was still called for. Many people today feel that it is almost wrong to feel joy. How can we be happy, when we know that other people are suffering? How can we feel good about life, when there is a great deal of evil around us that threatens any goodness? God, though, seems to realize the importance of finding satisfaction along the way. If we do not find it and feel it, we can easily lose heart and get discouraged. We should not wait until everything is perfect before we rejoice in what is already good. We should enjoy life’s journey, even though some of it may be uphill. Palm Sunday calls us to celebrate the fact that God is with us. Enjoy being “on the way!” Be glad to be among Christ’s present day followers, who experience God’s goodness to us, and walk with a lighter step.

STEWARDSHIP
WE HAVE A GREATER NEED
Of course, the church needs our money if it is to do God’s holy work of ministering His love to His people. But as great as this need is, we have a prior and greater need and that is to use rightly all that God has entrusted to us. We have a great need to give lovingly, with thanksgiving to God. BE JOYFUL AND THANKFUL Giving is a time for each one of us to be joyful and thankful to God for all He has given and gives to us daily. We receive from Him in order to give. Jesus said, “Give and it shall be given to you.” TITHING OUR TIME AND TALENT Tithing, a percent of our income to the Lord is commendable. Even more commendable is giving a percentage of our time and talent. Indeed, it is the tithing of all of the gifts God has given to us that allows us to be strong, faithful and devoted stewards.
