G EN ESIS 4 5:1- 15 (N I V) 1 Then Joseph could no longer control himself before all his attendants, and he cried out, "Have everyone leave my presence!" So there was no one with Joseph when he made himself known to his brothers. 2 And he wept so loudly that the Egyptians heard him, and Pharaoh's household heard about it. 3 Joseph said to his brothers, "I am Joseph! Is my father still living?" But his brothers were not able to answer him, because they were terrified at his presence. 4 Then Joseph said to his brothers, "Come close to me." When they had done so, he said, "I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! 5 And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you. 6 For two years now there has been famine in the land, and for the next five years there will not be plowing and reaping. 7 But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance. 8 "So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God. He made me father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt. 9 Now hurry back to my father and say to him, 'This is what your son Joseph says: God has made me lord of all Egypt. Come down to me; don't delay. 10 You shall live in the region of Goshen and be near me - you, your children and grandchildren, your flocks and herds, and all you have. 11 I will provide for you there, because five years of famine are still to come. Otherwise you and your household and all who belong to you will become destitute.' 12 "You can see for yourselves, and so can my brother Benjamin, that it is really I who am speaking to you. 13 Tell my father about all the honor accorded me in Egypt and about everything you have seen. And bring my father down here quickly." 14 Then he threw his arms around his brother Benjamin and wept, and Benjamin embraced him, weeping. 15 And he kissed all his brothers and wept over them. Afterward his brothers talked with him.

unison scripture
11:00 a.m. 6:00 p.m.

PSA L M 40: 1 -10 (N RSV) 1 I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. 2 He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord. 4 Happy are those who make the Lord their trust, who do not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods. 5 You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you. Were I to proclaim and tell of them, they would be more than can be counted. 6 Sacrifice and offering you do not desire, but you have given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering you have not required. 7 Then I said, "Here I am; in the scroll of the book it is written of me. 8 I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart." 9 I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; see, I have not restrained my lips, as you know, O Lord. 10 I have not hidden your saving help within my heart, I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation; I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness from the great congregation.

G EN E SI S 19:15 -2 6 (N IV ) 15 With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, "Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished." 16 When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the LORD was merciful to them. 17 As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, "Flee for your lives! Don't look back, and don't stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!" 18 But Lot said to them, "No, my lords, please! 19 Your servant has found favor in your eyes, and you have shown great kindness to me in sparing my life. But I can't flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I'll die. 20 Look, here is a town near enough to run to, and it is small. Let me flee to it - it is very small, isn't it? Then my life will be spared." 21 He said to him, "Very well, I will grant this request too; I will not overthrow the town you speak of. 22 But flee there quickly, because I cannot do anything until you reach it." (That is why the town was called Zoar.) 23 By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. 24 Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah - from the LORD out of the heavens. 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, including all those living in the cities - and also the vegetation in the land. 26 But Lot's wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

"JOHN GAR ANG’S DE AT H A T A TIME O F WAR AND PE ACE IN SUDAN"
Africa Actio n Statem en t o n Jo hn Garan g's Death at a Tim e of War and Peace in Sud an
Upon the death of Vice President John Garang de Mabior on Sunday, July 31st, the members of Trinity UCC joined with Afr ica Action in offering condolences to John Garang’s family and the people of Sudan, in particular the southern Sudanese people and the progressive pro-democracy forces throughout all regions of Africa’s largest country. Dr. Garang’s widow, Rebecca Garang, was quoted as saying that, "It is the body who has gone. His spirit, his vision, his program, we're going to implement them. We want to keep his legacy alive; keeping the peace is how we can honor his memory." In the spirit of upholding Dr. Garang's vision, we join with Af rica Action in urging the Sudanese government, all African governments and the international community more broadly to ensure the diligent implementation of the North-South Peace agreement and to stop the genocide in Darfur, Sudan. Three weeks before his death, Dr. Garang became the Vice President of Sudan, as part of the peace agreement signed in January
Sunday, August 14, 2005

by representatives of the Khartoum government and Dr. Garang on behalf of the South. A new national government cabinet was to be announced next week. At the time of his death, Vice President Garang was working to establish an autonomous government for southern Sudan and to promote the economic, social and political development of the people of southern Sudan. Dr. Garang was also seeking a way to stop the genocide in the Darfur region of western Sudan. On several recent visits to the U.S., Dr. Garang proposed that the 10,000 United Nations Peace Keeping Troops being sent to southern Sudan be moved instead to Darfur to stop the violence and protect the 2.5 million people who are now homeless in camps. At th is m om ent o f Dr . Gar ang ’ s death , Su dan is a cou ntr y s imu ltaneo usly at war an d p eace. Wh ile the No rth -S ou th p eace accor d si gn als the h istor ic end to Af r ica’s lon gest r un nin g war , the g en ocid e in Dar fu r co ntin ues to claim u nto ld n um ber s o f m ainly civilian liv es . The end of the North-South conflict is tantamount to the end of apartheid in Sudan whereby, since independence in 1956, northern Arab-led governments have discriminated against, oppressed and exploited southern Sudanese on the basis of racial and religious identity. The North-South accord, known as the

PASTOR’S PAGE
Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), represents a victory for southern Sudanese and the acknowledgment of their right to selfdetermination. John Garang, as the head of the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army and Movement, provided the crucial leadership that resulted in the agreement. Dr . Gar ang ar ticulated a v isio n o f a “New Sud an” wh er e all Su danes e en joy ed eq ual r igh ts r egar dless of th eir r egio n, r ace, or r eligio n, and wher e no m ino rity go ver nm ent co uld imp os e i ts will on th e m ajor ity of Sud anese. His v isio n h as in spir ed m illio ns o f Sud anese and no w ser ves as o ne p oss ible tem plate f or Sud an’ s f utu re an d an alter nativ e to co ntin ued vio lence and des tru ction . In the weeks, months and years ahead, all people committed to peace in Sudan can honor John Garang’s vision by increasing their efforts to support the southern Sudanese struggle to achieve meaningful development. This must include support for the hundreds of thousands of southerners from among the millions displaced who are now beginning to return home. We must increase our efforts to help stop the genocide in Darfur and support the strict implementation of the CPA, which will alter the composition of the central government in Sudan and may change its very nature and that of political life throughout the country.
Sunday, August 14, 2005

John Garang’s legacy is that of a soldier for human dignity and self-determination who finally brought peace to his home region and created the concrete prospects of peace for a nation that is in part still at war. The members of Trinity UCC join with Af ri ca Actio n in commiting to honor the words of Rebecca Garang by working towards a U.S. policy that supports the continued implementation of the CPA and an end to the genocide in Darfur.

AND W HAT AB OUT AFRICA?
This past week 30 members of the church (actually 26 members of Trinity Church and four visitors) have been traveling in Nigeria. Today we go to Ghana. How m uch d o y ou kn ow abo ut tho se two co un tries i n Africa? Hundreds of thousands of Africans are starving in Niger. Our denomination has been involved in fighting the famine in Niger.

persons who need food today. We have individual members who have made it their own personal crusades to address the famine in Niger. Ho w mu ch d o y ou kn ow abo ut th at cou ntry in Africa? In December of this year, we will be traveling to South Africa. This will be our fifth trip as a congregation to Johannesburg, to Durbin, to Groutville, and to Camp Town. How m uch do yo u k no w abo ut th ose co un tries in Africa? Hundreds of thousands of women and children have been raped and killed in the Sudan and Angola, in Rwanda and in the Congo. Ho w mu ch do yo u k no w abo ut th ose cou ntries in Africa? In Nigeria, our members were shocked to discover that there are 130 million Black people living in that country with over 250 different ethnic groups and 260 different languages spoken! Did y ou kn ow th ose f acts abo ut o ne co un try in Africa? I am asking these questions because of what Dr. Gardner Taylor asked in 1999. He asked, “What about Africa? Will African Americans continue to turn their backs on Africa? Will the African American church continue to turn its back on Africa?” When will the curriculum in the schools in the United States of America begin to cover Africa? When will African Americans begin to learn about their own home country?
Sunday, August 14, 2005

When will Africans living in America become just as concerned about the countries on that continent as Jews who live in America are concerned about the man-made and mancreated State of Israel (which is also in Africa)? The “Israel” that was created in 1948 is not the Israel in your Bible. Did you know that? Did you know that the Israel in your Bible was and is in Africa? Wh at abou t Africa? When will you begin to learn about your own roots? As we wind down this year’s trip to West Africa, look at the hospital and the computer school that we have been supporting in Saltpond, Ghana, visit the slave castles and walk where our ancestors walked, I ask for your prayers. I also ask, however, “Wh at ab out Africa?” If you are wondering about all that Dr. Gardner Taylor said in 1999, read the October edition of the Trinity Trumpet. Have you subscribed to your own church’s newsmagazine yet? Maybe I will stop asking “What about Africa?” and start asking, “W hat ab out Trinity ?”

INVEST TIME IN IMPORTANT THINGS
As we live from day-to-day, we are investing our time and talents in various things. Are they really important? As Christian stewards, do we willingly volunteer our time and talent to the work of our church? Whatever we are doing had better be important. It costs us a day of our lives. We Manag e Wh at Go d Has Giv en Us A steward is defined as: an administrator or supervisor; a manager. As people of faith, we manage what God has given us. We are accountable to Him for how we use His gifts. We have both an individual and community obligation as stewards. We need to personally decide how to develop and commit the abilities and possessions we have. We must also respond to our faith community, the church, which provides us with opportunites to heighten the effect of our stewardship. In dication Of Ou r Valu es It is one thing to say that we are committed to serving God, and quite another to demonstrate that with our pocketbooks. The extent to which we are willing to do that reveals whether we are offering to God that which costs nothing or that which is truly sacrificial.
