PSA LM 51 :1 -1 1 (KJV )
1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. 4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. 5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. 6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. 7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. 9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. 11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

19 And his daughter in law, Phinehas' wife, was with child, near to be delivered: and when she heard the tidings that the ark of God was taken, and that her father in law and her husband were dead, she bowed herself and travailed; for her pains came upon her. 20 And about the time of her death the women that stood by her said unto her, Fear not; for thou hast born a son. But she answered not, neither did she regard it. 21 And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband. 22 And she said, The glory is departed from Israel: for the ark of God is taken.

I SAM UEL 4:17 -2 2 (KJV )
17 And the messenger answered and said, Israel is fled before the Philistines, and there hath been also a great slaughter among the people, and thy two sons also, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God is taken. 18 And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck brake, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years.

1 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, 14 Then Jesus, filled with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee, and a report about him spread through all the surrounding country. 15 He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by everyone. 16 When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, 17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written: 18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."

N EW DAR FUR PE ACE AND AC COUNT ABILITY AC T
Thursday, June 30, new legislation on Darfur, the Dar f ur Peace an d Accou ntab ility Act (HR 31 27 ), was introduced in the House by Reps. Hyde, Payne, Smith, Lantos, Royce, Tancredo, Wolf, Jackson-Lee and Capuano. HR 3127 has been introduced by a strong bipartisan coalition in the House. It is expected to be marked up and scheduled for floor action next week after Congress returns from its July 4 recess (July 1-10). Discussions are beginning on a possible Senate companion. HR 3127 is modeled on previous legislation, the Darfur Genocide Accountability Act (HR 1424), but does not include authorization for the use of force, oil sanctions, or a no fly zone. It does include: - Sense of Congress language reaffirming the finding of genocide, urging expansion and a stronger mandate for the AU mission; calling on the U.S. to render assistance to efforts of the ICC in Darfur; calling for “additional, dispositive measures” if the AU mission fails to stop the genocide; and calling for appointment of a Presidential Envoy for Sudan; - Asset and travel sanctions against individuals designated by the President as responsible for atrocities in Darfur (allowing a Presidential waiver); - Authorization to the Administration to provide assistance to reinforce the AU mission (AMIS), “including but not limited to” logistics, transport, communications, training,

command and control, technical, and aerial surveillance; - Instructions to use the U.S. voice, vote and influence to advocate NATO reinforcement of AMIS, including assets to deter air strikes against civilians, logistical, transport, communications, training, technical, command and control, aerial surveillance and intelligence support; - Denial of entry at U.S. ports to cargo ships or oil tankers engaged in business or trade in the oil sector of Sudan or involved in the shipment of goods for use by Sudan Armed Forces; - Prohibition of non-humanitarian assistance from countries which violate the military embargo imposed by UNSCR 1556 and 1591; - Direction to the Administration to pursue passages of a UNSC resolution expanding AMIS, pressing on peace talks, imposing individual sanctions, and calling for suspension of Sudan’s rights and privileges of membership in the General Assembly; and, - Reporting requirements on sanctions imposed by the Comprehensive Peace in Sudan Act (2004) and on the status of the AMIS mission and U.S. assistance to it. Wh at abo ut HR 1 42 4? While other legislation in the House, the Darfur Genocide Accountability Act (HR 1424), had previously received significant support (120 cosponsors) and notable public attention, it had not garnered sufficient bipartisan backing to move forward.

Objections by leadership in the House to certain provisions (particularly authorization of use of force and oil sanctions) made clear that HR 1424 would not move forward. I t is always ab ou t the o il, isn't i t? Thus, the original sponsors of HR 1424 worked with leadership in the House to craft a bill that would garner strong bipartisan support and move forward while still addressing the key issues of civilian protection, accountability, an end to the violence in Darfur, and a comprehensive peace in Sudan. The result is HR 3127, the Darfur Peace and Accountability Act. While it does not include some of the strongest provisions of HR 1424, it maintains a strong stand on support for the African Union mission, including a NATO role. It also includes a number of individual sanctions and prohibitions. In addition, it includes a call for cooperation with the ICC (which was not in HR 1424); and requires useful reporting by the Administration on the critical issues of AMIS support and U.S. sanctions. It also maintains a bipartisan coalition on Darfur and ensures legislative action this summer. The new bill, HR 3127, is supported by original sponsors of HR 1424 and Republican leaders.

STOP VIOLE NCE AGAINST WOM EN!
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is due to be reauthorized in 2005. This legislation has provided critical support for local communities in domestic violence prevention and intervention work for over ten years. A bill to reauthorize and strengthen VAWA has been introduced in the House, HR 2876. The Senate version was introduced earlier in June. The original VAWA passed in 1994 represents an important milestone in the work to end violence against women. VAWA made funding available to local law enforcement agencies, judicial and court systems, and child abuse prevention and campus education programs. It also provided funding for programs assisting older violence survivors, those living with disabilities and those living in rural areas where access to services is more difficult. VAWA-supported programs have proven successful in addressing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. Yet much work remains to be done to address the many forms of violence against women. There is still a great need for Congress to address violence against Native American women, to stop trafficking of women and children, and to provide support for housing and economic security for survivors of domestic violence. Working to end violence against women in all its forms is essential to the task

EM ERG ING T OBACC O PRODU CT(S) AL ER TÔ M ARIJUANA-T HEM ED T OBACC O PR ODUCT S FROM KUSH TO PURPL E HAZ E
Prepared by George Crawford, SYNERGY CIS (6/16/05), metroadvocacy@yahoo.com Marijuana-Themed tobacco products are being sold in gas stations in Georgia. The terms KUSH and Pu r ple Haze are alternative names for marijuana. These names are being associated with tobacco products and marijuana-flavored candy. The tobacco products are called blunt wraps. The brands of interest include True Blunts (KUSH) and Royal Blunts ( Pur ple Haze) . The marijuana-flavored candy is called Kronic Kandy, which is another version of Chronic Candy. Specifically, there are two Kronic Kandy lollipops of interest; they are called KUSH and Purple Haze. As with Chronic Candy, Kronic Kandy uses alternative marijuana names to identify specific lollipops. Royal Blunts and True Blunts are using alternative marijuana names/themes to identify specific blunt wraps. Even though the companies argue that KUSH and Pur p le Haze represent fruit flavorings for their products, the names imply marijuana themes. HYDROBLUNTS DISTRIBUTOR, Inc. is the distributor of Royal Blunts, True Blunts and Kronic Kandy (Chronic Candy) in

Georgia. The name Hydroblunts essentially means the following: HYRDO translates into marijuana grown in water and BLUNTS translates into cigars (blunt wraps) filled with marijuana. It is widely known that marijuana smokers fill blunt wraps and/or hollowed out cigars with marijuana. Many hip-hop artists openly engage in this practice. This is significant because hip-hop artists can make the practice popular among youth. We know that hip-hop artists set cultural agendas/trends among young people (worldwide). If young people view marijuana use by hip-hop artists as being cool, then the practice of using tobacco products to smoke marijuana by hip-hop artists will also be viewed as being cool. Recent Royal and True Blunts advertisements featured popular hip-hop artists such as Baby of Cash Money and Warren G either using or promoting blunt wraps. An earlier True Blunt poster featured the phrase: “the sticky, icky, icky icky, ooh wee.” This phrase has been used by Snoop Dogg to describe marijuana. In addition, the poster features an image of a brown cigar stuffed with a green substance. The blunt image and the phrase implies that True Blunt wraps can be used to smoke marijuana. Chronic Candy (Kronic Kandy) advertisements also feature hip-hop artists such as Snoop Dogg and Andre 3000 using the candy. Chronic Candy advertisements include the phrases “Cigar and Blunt Customers,”

“Every Lick Is Like Taking A Hit” and “Tell A Friend and Not A Cop.” In addition, one of the Chronic Candy Corporation’s gummy candies is called “Icky Sticky Skunk Buds.” It appears that certain companies have a very strong interest in targeting young people with marijuana-flavored candies in hopes of 1) normalizing marijuana use among youth and 2) creating future customers for tobacco companies (blunts/cigars) and marijuana dealers. An increase in youth marijuana use may translate into an increase in youth tobacco use (blunts/cigar) in the future. This will further translate into future increases in profits for tobacco companies. It will not take long for youth experimenting with marijuana-flavored candy such as KUSH or Pur ple Haze lollipops (Kronic Kandy) to make a connection with marijuana themed tobacco products such as True Blunts’ KUSH blunt wraps and Royal Blunts’ Pu r ple Haze blunt wraps. For More Information about the companies, please visit the following websites: www.trueblunts.com, www.royalblunts.com, www.hydroblunts.com and www.chroniccandy.com.

STEWARDSHIP
ENJOY SOME SOULFUL COOKING THIS SUMMER!

The Akiba

VOLUNTEERING YOUR TIME AND TALENTS
Then you shall keep the feast of weeks to the LORD your GOD with the tribute of a freewill offering from your hand, which you shall give as the LORD your GOD blesses you. Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your GOD which He has given you. Deuteronomy 16:10, 17 (NRSV)
Consider Your Blessings Keep in mind good stewardship of time, talent and treasure. Have you been blessed in one area more abundantly than in others? Give As You Are Blessed Do you feel as though you are not able to give enough money to make a difference but you are a gifted musician or teacher? So if you are a teacher, teach. If you have time, volunteer. Perhaps your job keeps you travelling and your time and talents are not as available to your church, but you are able to give significant financial gifts. Proportionate Giving Give in proportion to what you have received. Give proportionally and as you are blessed. You may find time, talent or monies that you didn't know you had. Remember, the LORD loves a cheerful giver.
