unison scripture
7:30 a.m.

6:00 p.m.

L UKE 5: 12-16 (NRSV)
12 Once, when he was in one of the cities, there was a man covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he bowed with his face to the ground and begged him, "Lord, if you choose, you can make me clean." 13 Then Jesus stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, "I do choose. Be made clean." Immediately the leprosy left him. 14 And he ordered him to tell no one. "Go," he said, "and show yourself to the priest, and, as Moses commanded, make an offering for your cleansing, for a testimony to them." 15 But now more than ever the word about Jesus spread abroad; many crowds would gather to hear him and to be cured of their diseases. 16 But he would withdraw to deserted places and pray.
11:00 a.m. --------------------------------------

I SAM UEL 8:1-8 (NRSV)
1 When Samuel became old, he made his sons judges over Israel. 2 The name of his firstborn son was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; they were judges in Beer-sheba. 3 Yet his sons did not follow in his ways, but turned aside after gain; they took bribes and perverted justice. 4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah, 5 and said to him, "You are old and your sons do not follow in your ways; appoint for us, then, a king to govern us, like other nations." 6 But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, "Give us a king to govern us." Samuel prayed to the LORD, 7 and the LORD said to Samuel, "Listen to the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected me from being king over them. 8 Just as they have done to me, from the day I brought them up out of Egypt to this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so also they are doing to you.

I JO HN 4:18-21 (N RSV)
18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear; for fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love. 19 We love because he first loved us. 20 Those who say, "I love God," and hate their brothers or sisters, are liars; for those who do not love a brother or sister whom they have seen, cannot love God whom they have not seen. 21 The commandment we have from him is this: those who love God must love their brothers and sisters also.

HYMN OF PRAISE
7:30 a.m. 11:00 a.m.

JUST A L ITT LE TAL K WITH J ESUS
VERSE I
I once was lost in sin but Jesus took me in, And then a little light from heaven filled my soul; It bathed my heart in love and wrote my name above, And just a little talk with Jesus made me whole.

OH, HOW I LO VE JE SUS
VE RSE I
There is a name I love to hear, I love to sing its worth; It sounds like music in mine ear, The sweetest name on earth.

CHORUS
O, how I love Jesus, O, how I love Jesus, O, how I love Jesus, Because He first loved me!

CHORUS

[Now let us] Have A little talk with Jesus, [let us] tell Him all about our troubles, [He will] Hear our faintest cry, [and He will] answer by and by; [Now when you] Feel a little pray’r wheel turning, [and you] know a little fire is burning, [you will] Find a little talk with Jesus makes it right [it makes it right].

VE RSE II
It tells me of a Savior’s love, Who died to set me free; It tells me of His precious blood, The sinner’s perfect plea. (Repeat Chorus)

VE RSE III
It tells me what my Father hath In store for ev’ry day, And tho’ I tread a darksome path, Yields sunshine all the way. (Repeat Chorus)

VERSE II

Sometimes my path seems drear, without a ray of cheer, And then a cloud of doubt may hide the light of day; The mists of sin may rise and hide the starry skies, But just a little talk with Jesus clears the way. (Repeat chorus)

VE RSE IV
It tells of One whose loving heart Can feel my deepest woe, Who in each sorrow bears a part, That none can bear below. (Repeat Chorus)

VERSE III

I may have doubts and fears, my eyes be filled with tears, But Jesus is a friend who watches day and night; I go to Him in pray’r, He knows my ev’ry care, And just a little talk with Jesus makes it right. (Repeat chorus)

PASTOR’S PAGE
A VE RY SPECIAL WEL COM E T O JE RRY CAN NON!
We are “peacock proud and hyena happy” (to use Freddy Haynes terminology) to welcome to our pulpit today the Reve rend Doctor Je rry Cannon . Dr. Cannon is the pastor of the C.N. Jenkins Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. Dr. Cannon has hosted me at the C.N. Jenkins Church ever since he was called to serve there as pastor 12 years ago. It has been my privilege to have watched the C.N. Jenkins Church grow from a small, struggling congregation to a powerful place of worship and service in our God’s Kingdom. The growth of the C.N. Jenkins Church (and the construction of their new facility!) are the direct results of the awesome pastorate of this terrific man of God. For the members of our congregation who were at our annual Revival services on Thursday and Friday, you got to see some of the members of C.N. Jenkins who traveled with their pastor to the city of Chicago for this week (to be at our Revival and to be with us this Sunday). When Dr. Cannon and I settled on this date for his being here, the emergency meeting of the Board of Directors of the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference had not been set. I am sorry that I am not with

him personally to share in this morning’s service, but I know that he will preach with power. My request of you, my beloved members of Trinity, is that you give him a Trinity welcome and receive him with open arms. Thank you, Jerry, for blessing us; and thank you for bringing your members to worship with us!

DR. W ALDO J OHNSON DO ES IT AGAIN !
One of the most active members of our church, Dr. Wa ldo Johnson , a faithful member of the Men’s Chorus and the Men’s Ministries continues to blaze exciting trails at the University of Chicago! After having achieved tenure, Dr. Johnson continued to shepherd African American students (and white students) towards their Ph.D. degree in the School of Social Work. As a result of his sterling service and his outstanding scholarship, Dr. Johnson was appointed on the July 1, 2005 to be the director of the Center of the Study of Race, Politics and Culture by the University Provost! This appointment is a three-year appointment. This is another “first” for Dr. Johnson and it is another reason why Trinity members should be proud of what

all of our members are doing in various walks of life. Be sure to give Dr. Johnson a high-five today! 2006 to start a Marine Policy Fellowship on Capitol Hill. It is The Knauss Fellowship sponsored by the NOAAC Grant! There are not too many congregations that have Marine Biologists as members of the congregation. We are blessed to have one in our congregation and we are blessed to have Letise still an active member of this congregation! Please be sure to give her a high-five this week.

CO NGRAT ULAT IO NS L ET ISE HOUSER!
One of my “kids” in this church, Miss Leti se House r, is finishing up her doctoral work and I want the congregation to be aware of what it is she is doing. Many of you will remember that she was here at an 11 o’clock service last year and I was teasing her about being a marine biologist. Letise is April Houser’s daughter. Letise grew up in this church and has gone on to excel in her chosen field and profession. On Friday, September 16th, Letise will be defending her Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Delaware. Letise is home here in Chicago for the summer as she finishes up the writing of her dissertation. After she successfully defends in September, Letise will be based here until the end of the year 2005. Her actual graduation from the University of Delaware is not until next January. Following her tenure here for the rest of this year, Letise will be moving to Washington, D.C., at the beginning of

We ask you to pray for a safe trip for them and a ministry of music that will bless thousands of lives. Justice O'Connor's resignation creates a vacancy on the Supreme Court for the first time in over 11 years. Her replacement will be appointed for life and will be given the responsibility of interpreting our nation's constitutional rights. Given the Supreme Court's role in protecting the rights and liberties of all Americans, a thorough and deliberate process of consultation and confirmation is essential. The "advise and consent clause" in the Constitution makes the President and Senate partners in the appointment and confirmation of federal judges. The President's meeting with congressional leaders on July 12th was an encouraging step in the process of consultation, and one to be applauded. Your voice is needed to encourage President Bush and the Senate to engage in a process of consultation that is thorough, fair and beyond reproach. It is only through such a process that a consensus nominee will emerge who is independent of ideological bias and committed to protecting the rights, liberties and freedom of all Americans. To send a fax or e-mail message to the President and your senators go to: http://www.ucctakeaction.org/ctt.asp?u=21 49192&l=99604 I wonder why this action of the General Synod didn't make the news?

ACTION-CAL L FOR FAIR COUR T PROC ESS
Dear Trinity Member, In response to the July 1 resignation announcement of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the UCC 25th General Synod in Atlanta, GA, approved an emergency resolution calling for President Bush and the Senate to engage in a bipartisan process of meaningful consultation in nominating the next Supreme Court Justice. The Synod resolution expresses appreciation for Justice O'Connor's balanced jurisprudence and moderating leadership and calls attention to the significance of this nomination at a time when the country is deeply divided. This resolution urges the President and the Senate to set aside the politics of confrontation and division, and instead pursue consensus.

things that make you go: Hmmmmmmmmmm?" to the estate tax by 2011 when someone dies and leaves an estate to heirs. Eliminating the estate tax also has a negative impact on giving to churches, charities, educational institutions and foundations. The Congressional Budget Office has shown that if the current estate tax had been repealed in 2000, U.S. charities would have lost $13 to $25 billion in donations in that one year alone. The estate tax is our most fair and progressive tax, because it taxes only those who are already wealthy and have the ability to pay. It also provides needed revenues at a time when Congress is facing nearly $45 billion in cuts to programs funding critical needs in the next 5 years and even deeper cuts in the future. You can send an email to your senators through our UCC website by going to http://www.ucctakeaction.org/ctt.asp?u=21 49192&l=100194 Call the Congressional switchboard at (202)224-3121 and ask to be connected to your senator's office. Urge them to oppose any legislation to permanently repeal the estate tax!

Pastor Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.

AN OTHE R SENAT E "SLICKIE " T O BE NEFIT T HE RICH!
Before Congress adjourns for its August break, the Senate leadership wants to eliminate the estate and gift tax, a tax that only applies to the wealthiest 1.4 percent of U.S. families. With scheduled changes in exemption limits, the tax will only apply to the wealthiest 0.3 percent of U.S. families by 2009. The House has already passed legislation eliminating the estate tax (H.R. 8). Exemptions in the estate tax already make it virtually certain that family farmers, homeowners and most upper-income asset holders will never pay inheritance taxes. Today, estates valued at less than $1.5 million ($3 million for a couple) can be passed on tax-free. By 2009, only estates exceeding $3.5 million ($7 million for couples) will be subject to the estate tax. At this level, according to the Urban Institute, only 8,500 estates in the entire country (just 65 of which are farm estates) will be subject

TO DO

JUSTICE
Micah 6:8

By Rev. Reginald Williams

It appears that some people are finally beginning to wake up and smell the oil. London Mayor Ken Livingstone told BBC radio last week that Western intervention in the “Middle East” since the end of WWI was motivated by a desire to control the flow of oil. According to Livingstone, “Under foreign occupation and denied a right to vote, denied the right to run your own affairs . . . I suspect that if it had happened here in England we would have produced a lot of suicide bombers ourselves . . . But I don't just denounce suicide bombers. I denounce those governments which use indiscriminate slaughter to advance their foreign policy.” The double standard spoken of by Mayor Livingstone is just another example of what Dr. Marimba Ani calls “Rhetorical Ethic.” Rhetorical Ethic, according to Dr. Ani, is defined as: culturally structured European hypocrisy. It is a statement framed in terms of acceptable moral behavior towards others that is meant for rhetorical purposes only. Its purpose is to disarm intended victims of European cultural and political imperialism. It is meant for “export” only. It is not intended to have significance within the culture. Its essence is its deceptive effect in the service of European power. This rhetorical ethic empowers Bush and Blair to claim to denounce terrorism while refusing to look in the mirror and at the Downing Street Memo to see how they have infected the world with a virus of hate and evil. The Downing Street Memo shows how they intentionally fixed facts and “intelligence” (or stupidity, depending on how you view it) in order to make themselves a war, resulting in over hundreds of thousands dead – Americans and Iraqis. Please do not be fooled by the games these people are playing. It is no more than rhetorical ethic. ACTION ITEMS 1. BOYCOTT WAL-MART & SAMS CLUB Thought for this week: It is far better to be free to govern or misgovern yourself than to be governed by anybody else. ~Kwame Nkrumah

STEWARDSHIP
STEWARD OF HOPE
The most exciting lesson on Stewardship that I learned didn’t come from a book, but from old Mark Bright. Mark, a living example of Christian joy, always seemed to find life a great adventure. Until arthritis caught up with him, Mark was always the most willing volunteer in his church, able somehow to make difficult jobs readily accomplished. Mark taught me: “Christians are stewards of hope. We are the stewards of tomorrow.” Daily, I become more impressed with the truth of Mark’s teaching. The world today seems so filled with greed, cynicism, despair and hardness of heart that the few people who face tomorrow courageously are a light in the darkness. I wish I could say that all of those courageous people were Christians, but I cannot since God chooses to do some of His work through unbelievers. I wish I could claim the antithesis, namely that all the Christians I have met are courageous. I cannot, because some are a faint spark where others are a flame. However, it seems to me that Christians, as a group, are more hopeful, more cheerful, more courageous in facing tomorrow than the other people of this world. For Christians, there is always a “Tomorrow,” for we have an understanding and forgiving God. Our hope is to be a blessing to the world for Christ. When we strive to be better stewards for Christ, we should remember to guard, nurture and share our greatest treasure “Christians are stewards of hope. We are stewards of tomorrow.”
