UNISON SCRIPTURE
7:30 a.m.

GENESIS 21:15-21 (NRSV)
15 When the water in the skin was gone, she cast the child under one of the bushes. 16 Then she went and sat down opposite him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot; for she said, “Do not let me look on the death of the child.” And as she sat opposite him, she lifted up her voice and wept. 17 And God heard the voice of the boy; and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, and said to her, “What troubles you, Hagar? Do not be afraid; for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is. 18 Come, lift up the boy and hold him fast with your hand, for I will make a great nation of him.” 19 Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. She went, and filled the skin with water, and gave the boy a drink. 20 God was with the boy, and he grew up; he lived in the wilderness, and became an expert with the bow. 21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran; and his mother got a wife for him from the land of Egypt. -----------------------------------------11:00 a.m.

because he is his friend, at least because of his persistence he will get up and give him whatever he needs. 9 “So I say to you, Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. -----------------------------------------6:00 p.m.

JOHN 19:18-25 (NRSV)
18 There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, with Jesus between them. 19 Pilate also had an inscription written and put on the cross. It read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.”20 Many of the Jews read this inscription, because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, and in Greek. 21 Then the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘This man said, I am King of the Jews.’” 22 Pilate answered, “What I have written I have written.” 23 When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his clothes and divided them into four parts, one for each soldier. They also took his tunic; now the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece from the top. 24 So they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see who will get it.” This was to fulfill what the scripture says, “They divided my clothes among themselves, and for my clothing they cast lots.” 25 And that is what the soldiers did. Meanwhile, standing near the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.

LUKE 11:5-10 (NRSV)

5 And he said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend, and you go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread; 6 for a friend of mine has arrived, and I have nothing to set before him.’ 7 And he answers from within, ‘Do not bother me; the door has already been locked, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up and give you anything.’ 8 I tell you, even though he will not get up and give him anything

PASTOR’S PAGE
IN HONOR OF OUR MOTHERS
Mother’s Day at Trinity Church has always been a very special day. For the first ten years of this church’s life, Mother's Day was Women’s Day. Once I began my pastorate here, however, I moved Women’s Day off of Mother's Day so that we could give proper recognition and honor to our mothers on one day and to all of the women in our church and church community on a separate day. Today is the day that we stop to honor our mothers and I want to take this opportunity to send a pastoral message to all of the women who gave us life. Because my mother is such a blessing in my life, I never thought about all of the members in our congregation who are not blessed as I am. Shortly after becoming a pastor I had members bring to my attention the fact that their mothers had abandoned them. I had other members who told me “horror stories” of how their mothers treated them as they sought their own agendas, sexual agendas, “getting a man” agendas and professional career agendas. Our members (as children of these women) got kicked to the curb. That made Mother's Day very difficult for them as I talked about my own mother and the mothers who had tried to do it God's way.
Happy Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8, 2005

On this Mother's Day I want to say to those members that had it not been for your mothers you would not be here! They may not have done it God's way, but I thank God that they did not get an abortion. If they had, you would not be here! To all of our mothers who are single parents, I write you on this day to encourage you and to thank you. I thank you for your hard work. I thank you for your sacrifices. I thank you for doing your best to raise your children in the church and to raise them in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Yours is a thankless job. You wear the stereotype of the “single moms” and you get the “putdowns” that are so easily and rapidly given by the church community. On this Mother's Day I want to lift you up and not put you down! I thank you for the love that you have given your child(ren). I thank you for the sacrifices you have made on their behalf. I thank you for pushing them and praying for them. I thank you for seeing to it that they had the very best that you could offer and on behalf of our Lord, I say to you, “Thank you!” To the mothers of our church who have been “married moms” and who have had to care for your children and your husbands (and many would say that we are children too!) I want to say a special “Thank you!” You have worked hard. You have provided

love, nurture and a spiritual foundation for your children. You have done an awesome balancing act in juggling the roles of mother, wife, friend, caretaker, nurse, cook and “superwoman.” There is no “S” on your chest in terms of your being “superwoman.” There is an invisible “S” on your soul, however, as being one of God’s “saints!” Thank you! To the “other mothers” in our congregation, I say “Thank you,” also. You have been “surrogate mothers.” You have been “play mothers.” You have been the feminine presence in the lives of many of us who talked to you when we felt we could not talk to our biological mothers. For all that you have done to make life what it has been for those “play children” of yours, I say a special thank you also. May God continue to bless you and keep you. in Dallas, Texas, have been looking forward to for two years now. This is the weekend that our son in the ministry, the Reverend Frederick Douglas Haynes III, graduates with his Doctor of Ministry from Oxford University. The graduation ceremony took place at Notre Dame University on Friday, May 6, 2005. Several members of Friendship West came to Chicago and to Indiana by plane, by bus and by automobile to share in this special moment with their beloved Pastor and our son. As a “Daddy,” I am extremely proud. (I think you already know that!) I just want to say to the members of Friendship West who are worshipping with us today and I want to say to Freddy, “Congratulations and God bless you!” You have done an awesome job, an excellent job, and we are proud of you. Please greet the members of Friendship West who worship with us today and let them know how much you appreciate their pastor and his gifts of ministry.

faithfully two and three times a month, providing a ministry of music for the members of our congregation, and they only have one concert a year. They would love to have your support just once a year as they support their church members so faithfully throughout the year! I would love to have your support for their concert, also. I need you to be here next Sunday to show them that we love them, that we appreciate them and that their efforts are not in vain. The women in this ministry make 52 to 60 rehearsals a year – after having worked hard all day. Then they sing on the third Sunday mornings and the first Sunday and fourth Sunday evenings at our worship services each month. That is a minimum of 30 services a year – not counting funerals and outside engagements! Please come back to the 3:00 p.m. service next week to show your appreciation and to let them know that we love them and thank God for all that they do to make our church what it is.

Calling All Men!
On Friday, May 20, 2005, the men of Trinity will gather in the sanctuary for our first all-male worship service in the year 2005. The preacher for the night will be the Reverend Otis Moss III, pastor of the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Augusta, Georgia. Our congregation fell in love with Pastor Moss when he preached our Youth Revival last year. He blessed the men of our church at the 2004 Men’s Conference and he will be back in our midst on Friday night, May 20th. All members of the church are invited to attend. We just want to say to the sisters, however, that the focus will be on lifting up African American men and the importance of their role in the African American community. Mark your calendars now!

Bolton Bad for U.N.
Dear Trinity Members, The United Church of Christ has a strong and proud legacy of supporting the United Nations. The General Synod of the United Church of Christ has repeatedly affirmed that a productive relationship between the United Nations and the United States is essential for a successful U.S. foreign policy. Both the UCC Wider Church Ministries and UCC Justice and Witness Ministries hold nongovernmental standing with the United Nations. John Bolton, the nominee of the Bush Administration to serve as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has a long history of opposing the work of the United Nations. His willingness to put ideology ahead of American security has been well documented. Mr. Bolton has said that the day President Bush retracted the U.S. commitment to the International Criminal Court was the happiest day of his professional career. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has raised many concerns about entrusting the highly sensitive task of forging international agreements in a polarized and dangerous world to John Bolton. These concerns are too great to move this nomination out of committee to the full Senate floor. To send a letter to your senators asking them to oppose this nomination, click http://www.ucctakeaction.org/ctt.asp?u=21491 92&l=91508 To view the resolution going to the UCC General Synod XXV urging that the UCC support the International Criminal Court, click http://www.ucctakeaction.org/ctt.asp?u=21491 92&l=91506

For the past two years, Sudan’s western Darfur region has been the scene of an orchestrated campaign of rape and killings. There are broad estimates of how many have

been killed, ranging from 70,000 to more than 300,000. There have been so many villages torched and plundered that virtually everyone in Darfur seems to now be living in refugee camps. About 2.6 million people live in all of Darfur, a region the size of Texas. PLEASE JOIN US! We can make a difference if we try. For more information or bus transportation from Saint Sabina, call 773-4834300. Rev. Dr. Michael L. Pfleger, Pastor Submit their names to the church office to the attention of the “Graduate Recognition Sunday Committee.” We don’t want any member’s name left off of the program and we don’t want any “surprises” on the day of the program! All of our graduates are asked to be here in the Sanctuary on Sunday, June 12th in order that we might honor you and say to God that we thank God for God’s gifts given to you as you complete this “milestone” in your educational journey.

------------------------GRADUATE RECOGNITION SUNDAY!
Most of our new members do not know that we honor, recognize and give “shout-outs” to all of our graduates on the second Sunday in June. Because so many members don’t know that, they have not yet sent in their names and the schools from which they are graduating so that they can be recognized on graduate Sunday. I am urging you today to please submit either your name or the names of persons in your family who have finished elementary school, middle school, high school, college, or graduate school.

We NEED You!
Your pastor, your church and the entire Media Department of Trinity United Church of Christ need you to spread the word! For well over ten years, Trinity provided the Chicagoland viewing audience with one full hour of power. For well over ten years, members of this church, friends of Trinity and many, many others were blessed to get the genius of Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. We were blessed and provided ministry to be a blessing to several thousands in the Chicagoland viewing area. We thank God for all who watched us and worshiped with us during that period of time. As we all know, however, “to everything there is a time and a season.” The season has changed. We were blessed to have faithful viewers during the WJYS season. As faithful as our viewers were, however, their viewing did not generate any revenue. Your church spent well over two million dollars airing that prime time Monday night worship service. Within those ten years, two million dollar expense, we did not generate one-tenth of the expense in revenue. Our viewers failed to plant a seed in this ministry. They failed to purchase the sermons or support the ministry of the church financially. Life was made very easy for the viewers, as they taped the services and

sermons, week in and week out. Because we are blessed to have Dr. Wright as our pastor, and so many others across the globe long to be blessed by the messages God gives him, we remained prayerful for ten years. Our prayer was for God to lead us to minister, at least nationally, in God’s own time. As the ministry of Dr. Wright grew, preaching and lecturing 40+ weeks out of each year in all areas of the world, more people outside of these walls called Trinity United Church of Christ constantly prayed and asked why they could not get Dr. Wright on any of their religious broadcast programming. Several others began working on securing Pastor Wright and Trinity on national programming. Because God is faithful, Trinity is now able to share the liberation theology preached through the man of God, Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., with the nation! What a blessing this national ministry has already been to the church, within one month! Monetary gifts, tape series orders, book sales, Trumpet Newsmagazines, etc., come in daily! We receive more calls now for orders on any given Sunday or Tuesday morning than we would receive within an entire month while we were broadcasting on WJYS. To God be the glory! We are encouraging our faithful viewers who would plan their Monday evenings around the ministry of Trinity United Church of Christ to subscribe to the tape ministry. We have had monthly tape subscribers (many living out of the country) for the past 15 years. Understanding change is never easy. We ask you to please help us make this transitional season of change a much easier one. Support the ministry of media and help us reach the masses. Please continue to pray for us, as we strive to do the Will of God and share the Man of God with the world, and not simply confine him to this small Chicagoland viewing area. God bless you!

TO DO

JUSTICE
Micah 6:8

By Rev. Reginald Williams

Many media outlets in this country are run and directed by right-wing conservatives with the financial resources to ensure that their viewpoint is passed over to the viewers and readers as fact. In their effort to shape the views of those watching and reading these media outlets, supporters’ privileged conservative agenda not only fund the outlets to ensure that their message in disseminated, but they also hire persons to frame and deliver talking points to the media. In essence, the outlets are being told what to think and what to say by those with the financial resources, who only want to preserve their privileged positions to the detriment of those on whose backs their riches come and have come. Consider the following examples. Socalled journalist, Armstrong Williams, was hired by the government for $240,000 to push Bush’s No Child Left Behind Act on his syndicated television show. Corporations, like Wal-Mart, throw exorbitant sums of money to shows like “The Tavis Smiley Show” as a supporter. The chairman of PBS has recently made decisions which indicate their desire to infuse more and more of the conservative agenda into broadcasting schemes and shows on PBS claiming that these decisions are an attempt to bring more objectivity and balance. Think further as you listen to the music on the radio, particularly with regard to hip-hop music and stations that play hip-hop. The music played is funded by one of the five conglomerates that literally own hip-hop. Many times, it is music degrades women, or dealing in sex, drugs, murder, etc.

Very rarely will you hear music from the hip-hop or R&B genre that deals in any governmental criticism, or positive messages, as if that music does not exist. It is a part of a larger scheme in controlling all of media, and controlling the minds of people through messages of fear. Terrorism, homophobia, etc., are all issues used by those who control media to keep people in fear, while those who run the companies and fund the companies do what they will in order to preserve their privilege. I encourage you to seek out other forms of media that give another view than the one being forced upon people today. This is one purpose of our own Trinity Trumpet Newsmagazine - to offer a perspective other than that coming from the dominant culture regarding the issues we face as a people. Don’t depend on the major outlets to give you what you need regarding news. Do the research for yourself. When you do read or view those outlets, I encourage you to do so using your critical-thinking skills. When something arises that you don’t agree with, let the media outlet know by calls or letters. This is not a one-day thing, but a fight that must be waged every day. ACTION ITEMS: 1. BOYCOTT WAL-MART & SAM’S CLUB 2. Subscribe to the TRUMPET Thought for this week: A man who will not labor to gain his rights, is a man who would not, if he had them, prize ~~Frederick Douglass and defend them.

STEWARDSHIP
M easuring The Reach Of Your Stewardship
To describe a product’s success, newspapers sometimes state, “If all the (type of item) ever sold were lined up end-to-end, they’d reach from the earth to the moon and back.” Sometimes, this line is long enough to reach the moon multiple times. It’s an easy way to help readers imagine the large quantities involved. There’s no way of knowing how far all the donations given by Christians would reach if lined up. Of course, it isn’t necessary to measure them in terms of reaching to the moon and back. Instead, think about reaching needy families across the world with donations to a livestock program. Think about reaching students across the country with scholarships to help them go to college. Think about reaching the hungry in a nearby city with sandwiches made in your church kitchen. Think about reaching the hearts of people sitting in the pews around you with musical or dramatic performances. Finally, think of how the church has reached out to you, in one way or in many. Then try to think of other ways you can help others with your time, talent or treasure. Could you give time to help shut-ins maintain their property? A check to help finance our church’s expansion? A homemade dessert, afghan or bookends to be sold at a church bake sale and bazaar? A can of soup for a food drive, or hat and mittens for a clothing drive? God has reached out to us, giving us time, talent and treasure. Now it’s our responsibility to use those things to reach out as far as we can to others. The Stewardship Ministry Constance A. King, Editor Stacey Moore, Chairperson
