unison scripture
7:30 a.m.

EX ODU S 1 7:1 -7 (N RSV )
1 From the wilderness of Sin the whole congregation of the Israelites journeyed by stages, as the LORD commanded. They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink. 2 The people quarreled with Moses, and said, "Give us water to drink." Moses said to them, "Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you test the LORD?" 3 But the people thirsted there for water; and the people complained against Moses and said, "Why did you bring us out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and livestock with thirst?" 4 So Moses cried out to the LORD, "What shall I do with this people? They are almost ready to stone me." 5 The LORD said to Moses, "Go on ahead of the people, and take some of the elders of Israel with you; take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. 6 I will be standing there in front of you on the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it, so that the people may drink." Moses did so, in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 He called the place Massah and Meribah, because the Israelites quarreled and tested the LORD, saying, "Is the LORD among us or not?"
-----------------------------11:00 a.m.

he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed. 36 And Simon and his companions hunted for him. 37 When they found him, they said to him, "Everyone is searching for you." 38 He answered, "Let us go on to the neighboring towns, so that I may proclaim the message there also; for that is what I came out to do." 39 And he went throughout Galilee, proclaiming the message in their synagogues and casting out demons.

JOH N 3:1-6 ( KJV )
1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

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

TO FORM A MORE PE RFE CT UNION
The United States Postal Service and the Chicago Defender newspaper invite you to celebrate history as they unveil the commemorative stamp entitled, “To Form A More Perfect Union.” The launching of this stamp will be on Tuesday, August 30, 2005 at the Harold Washington Cultural Center, 47th Street and King Drive. The festivities start at 11:00 a.m. The commemorative stamp is really panes of ten stamps that capture some of the most important civil rights movement activities with each pane highlighting the courage and achievement of men and women who struggled for the liberation of our people in this country. The stamps featured on the pane include: 1948 1961 1954 1963 1955 Executive Order 9981 Freedom Riders Brown v. Board of Education March on Washington Montgomery Bus Boycott

OPT YOUR TE EN OUT OF MIL IT ARY LIST
Dear Trinity Member, Did you know that the No Child Left Behind Act now requires high schools to make student contact information available to military recruiters? Did you also know that the law gives parents and guardians the opportunity to opt out their child from military recruitment lists? For the upcoming school year, you must do so by the end of September, and you have to do it each year. Here's how to do it. With this easy to use Web site,

DID YOU KNOW T HE C IA HAS SE CRE T J AIL S?
On August 4, 2005 (almost a month ago now), there was a report in the Associated Press from San Juan, Puerto Rico about two Yemeni men who say that they were held in solitary confinement, in secret, underground United States detention facilities in an unknown country! They were interrogated by masked men

for more than 18 months witho ut b eing charged. They were not allowed any contact with the outside world and Amnesty International is on the case! Amnesty International and human rights lawyers have issued a report stating that the United States has held “secret detainees” in the war on terror. Sharon Critoph is one of the researchers at Amnesty International who interviewed the men in Yemen. She says, “We fear that what we have learned from these two men is just one small part of the much broader picture of U.S. secret detentions around the world!” Michael Ratner (of the United States Center for Constitutional Rights in New York City) says, “The fact that there are underground CIA facilities somewhere, where people are being tortured has been known for a while.” Backing up that claim is the testimony of the two men who are now being held in a jail in Yemen as a part of the “condition of their release” from United States custody. One of the men, Salah Ali, told Amnesty International that he was originally detained in Indonesia in August of 2003. He says he was “then flown several days later to Jordan.” The other man, Muhammad Bashmillah, testifies that he was detained in Jordan in October of 2003 while visiting his mother there! He took a trip to visit his mother and ended up a prisoner. Both Ali and Bashmillah testify that they were tortured by Jordanian intelligence agents for four days and then they were flown to underground jails in an unknown location. Once they were there they were held in solitary confinement f or mo re th an 1 8 m on ths !
Sunday, August 28, 2005

During that 18-month period, they were interrogated daily by United States guards and they had Western music blared into their cells all day and all night. No char ges wer e ev er filed ag ain st th em. These two men told Amnesty International that the first jail in which they were held was underground. It was surrounded by high walls and it took more than four hours to fly there from Jordan. After six to eight months in that prison they were transferred to a modern prison, which is run by United States officials. It took three hours by plane to get to that modern prison and it also was underground! Does this sound like something from a movie? This is your country at its finest, fighting terrorism! Does it frighten you? Does it wake you up? How much more will we take as a nation before we stand up and say, “No more!” The secrecy that shrouds the policies of this administration makes life for the followers of Jesus a very difficult proposition. Will you join me in prayer as we seek God’s Will to bring about a change in our country?

Stewardship
INVE ST TIME IN IMPORT ANT T HINGS
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 some of 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 Manage What God Has G iven 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 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 opportunities to heighten the effect of our stewardship. I ndicatio n of Ou r V alues It is quite one thing to say that we are committed to serving God, and quite another thing to demonstrate that with our pocketbooks. But 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.
