unison scripture
7:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m.

ACTS 17:10-15 (NRSV) 10 That very night the believers sent Paul and Silas off to Beroea; and when they arrived, they went to the Jewish synagogue. 11 These Jews were more receptive than those in Thessalonica, for they welcomed the message very eagerly and examined the scriptures every day to see whether these things were so. 12 Many of them therefore believed, including not a few Greek women and men of high standing. 13 But when the Jews of Thessalonica learned that the word of God had been proclaimed by Paul in Beroea as well, they came there too, to stir up and incite the crowds. 14 Then the believers immediately sent Paul away to the coast, but Silas and Timothy remained behind. 15 Those who conducted Paul brought him as far as Athens; and after receiving instructions to have Silas and Timothy join him as soon as possible, they left him. -----------------------------6:00 p.m.

ACTS 17:16-23 (NRSV) 16 While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was deeply distressed to see
Sunday, September 4, 2005

that the city was full of idols. 17 So he argued in the synagogue with the Jews and the devout persons, and also in the marketplace every day with those who happened to be there. 18 Also some Epicurean and Stoic philosophers debated with him. Some said, "What does this babbler want to say?" Others said, "He seems to be a proclaimer of foreign divinities." (This was because he was telling the good news about Jesus and the resurrection.) 19 So they took him and brought him to the Areopagus and asked him, "May we know what this new teaching is that you are presenting? 20 It sounds rather strange to us, so we would like to know what it means." 21 Now all the Athenians and the foreigners living there would spend their time in nothing but telling or hearing something new. 22 Then Paul stood in front of the Areopagus and said, "Athenians, I see how extremely religious you are in every way. 23 For as I went through the city and looked carefully at the objects of your worship, I found among them an altar with the inscription, ‘To an unknown god.' What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you.

CONFESSION OF SINS
Almighty and Most Merciful Father, we come before You, acknowledging our sins, our shortcomings, and our breaking of our Covenant with You. Not only have we done things we ought not to have done, said things we ought not to have said, left undone so many things we ought to have done and been silent when we should have witnessed for You. Not only are we guilty of that, O Lord; but we have also closed our eyes and pretended not to see the injustices, the racism and the evil which pervade our everyday lives. We have shut our ears and pretended not to hear the cries for liberation which come from the lips, lives and hearts of the oppressed - even our own Black brothers and sisters! Forgive us, O Lord, renew our courage and faith, and keep us ever mindful of Thy great sacrifice. Hear us, we beseech Thee, as we come to You in love and worship giving Your name the praise forevermore.

Be Still And Know!
This past Monday, as my family and I were leaving Los Cabos, savoring the last few moments of our wonderful week together, Hurricane Katrina was wrecking the lives of hundreds of thousands of residents of New Orleans. While we were laughing and smiling, others were screaming and crying. Still others were drowning and dying! Some of our students (members of TUCC) were evacuating New Orleans (students from Dillard and Xavier). Some of our students were leaving Grambling and Southern to seek refuge in Alabama, in Jackson, Mississippi, in Houston, Texas, and in Memphis, Tennessee. Some of our members were on the phone frantically trying to reach their relatives who were trapped in the path of the hurricane. Our staff member, Reggie Carter, (a native of New Orleans) has a sister in New Orleans whose home was completely demolished by the storm. Other members have loved ones there who cannot be reached because the phone lines are down. One whole section of the city where poor blacks live has been cut off, and with no televisions, the residents there did not know that a mandatory evacuation had been ordered so they died and/or are dying as we worship today! On Wednesday, I got a letter from one of our relocated members. I am sharing it with you today. Wednesday, August 31st, was a day of prayer for the citizens of the state of Louisiana. Today, I am asking you for a moment of
Sunday, September 4, 2005

silence, a moment of prayer and a moment of reflection as we lift up those who lost their lives because of the storm. Their deaths (and they are still dying) remind me of how serious life is and how precious life is. Hundreds of thousands have died and are still dying in Sudan as we worship. Let the deaths of our loved ones remind us of the deaths of their loved ones. Pray today for those who have died and for those loved ones who live with those deaths on their minds every day! Pray today for the people of God to wake up and see the importance of life and to see just how precious the gift of life is. Pray today that this weekend of fun, barbecue and festivities will not block out the reality of the losses we have suffered and the importance of preserving life, saving lives, ending war and choosing the Way of Him who came to give the world LIFE! He still says to us today, "Be still and know that I am God!" Read this letter below and see how one of our members is getting through this storm.

Pastor Jeremiah A Wright, Jr.

Checking in from Baton Rouge
Hello everybody, First of all, please forgive the blast email and any bad grammar this message may contain. I have communicated with some of you individually. Others I haven't been able to. I'm sure most of you have seen the footage on television of the devastating aftermath of

Hurricane Katrina. I must tell you honestly that what you have seen is only part of the whole story. Governor Blanco has done an excellent job in her interviews but no words can describe how terrible this storm has affected Louisiana. I have friends who have lost everything and an aunt who evacuated to Houston who probably lost everything as well. I also have an aunt, uncle and cousin who stayed behind. I don't know their status. Most of New Orleans and other cities in Southeast Louisiana are underwater. More than a million people are homeless. Tens of thousands are in shelters. Thousands are in desperate need of rescue. We are certain that there are numerous deaths. The rescue teams have to push past dead bodies to get to survivors. They can't even count casualties yet. And, as you may have seen, there is chaos in the streets with looters in some areas. I'm physically fine but mentally, emotionally and spiritually, I am exhausted. Today [Wednesday], the Governor has called for a day of prayer for the people affected by the hurricane. I ask that you join us by taking a moment today to send up a prayer, a positive thought – or whatever suits you – for the victims and for our recovery. It will take a very long time to recover, but we will get there. To my Chicago family, most of you know I was planning to come up there for vacation starting Friday. I was looking forward to hanging out with friends, going to Deneen and Gene's wedding, meeting Jennifer's baby boy, and being at TUCC Sunday morning. That is highly unlikely at this point. I have to be here to work and to help with relief efforts. I will see you all as soon as I can. Again, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers, especially the victims. I believe in the power of prayer and know it helps. Much love to you all, Roderick Roderick K. Hawkins Deputy Press Secretary Office of the Governor P.O.

----------------------------------Happy Labor Day!
While we party and enjoy ourselves this Labor Day weekend, there are thousands suffering in the world around us. In Iraq, the number of Americans dead rapidly approaches 1900. The number of Iraqi civilians dead is over 100,000. Happy Labor Day! In Darfur and Sudan, the genocide has not stopped. Black women and children are being raped and murdered. In the Congo, black women are being raped and black children are dying. Happy Labor Day! In New Orleans, the dead have not even been tabulated, much less recovered and

or buried. Forty-five million Americans have no insurance and thousands of those devastated in New Orleans and Mississippi are black, poor and uninsured; yet, we go right on partying and jamming "in the name of the Lord." Happy Labor Day! The African Festival in this city this weekend will attract millions of vendors, buyers, shoppers and consumers, artists, entertainers and those seeking to celebrate one last time before summer is over and school reopens; and the death toll continues to rise all around us. Happy Labor Day! Ever since the Bush Administration kidnapped Aristide – the "pro-poor" democratically elected president of Haiti – and installed their own "pro-business" puppet, the devastation and corruption in Haiti continues to escalate, while we go on partying, oblivious to what is happening to the blacks under genocidal attack right here in our hemisphere. Happy Labor Day! Congresswoman Maxine Waters, however, sent us a sobering letter that I want to share with you as you leave worship today to enjoy this holiday with your loved ones. Read it and think about it. Read it and wake up! Read it and act on it! ------------------------------------James B. Foley's comments regarding the interim government of Haiti. The Congresswoman's statement follows: I commend Ambassador James B. Foley for taking a courageous stand in support of justice and the rule of law in Haiti prior to his final departure as the United States Ambassador to that tormented nation. Ambassador Foley said the interim government of Haiti tarnished the country's image by releasing convicted killer and death squad leader Louis-Jodel Chamblain from prison while continuing to detain former Prime Minister Yvon Neptune. Time and time again, I have decried the incompetence of the interim government of Haiti, which continues to be supported by the Bush Administration. Kidnappings, murder and other crimes have become widespread in Haiti since the interim government came to power a year-and-a-half ago. Roads and infrastructure have fallen into disrepair, and public services have virtually disappeared. The interim government has done nothing to stem the growing violence in the country, and it has done nothing to make millions of dollars in promised aid from international donors available to the Haitian people. Just about the only thing the interim government has done is jail hundreds of political prisoners. Yvon Neptune is one of these political prisoners. He served as Haiti's prime minister prior to the February 2004 coup d'etat, and he is now the most prominent member of Lavalas,

the largest political party in Haiti. The interim government arrested him over a year ago without charges and continues to detain him without a trial. Twenty-eight Members of Congress called for his release in letters sent to President Bush last May. Another one of these political prisoners is Father Gerard Jean-Juste, a widely-respected Catholic priest. Prior to his arrest last month, Father Jean-Juste operated a soup kitchen for hungry children, one of the few social services available in a country whose government has abdicated its responsibilities. Amnesty International declared him a prisoner of conscience, and twenty-nine Members of Congress signed a letter calling for his release. Other prominent political prisoners in Haiti include former Interior Minister Jocelerme Privert and Haitian singer Anne Auguste, both of whom have been detained without a trial for over fifteen months. There is a growing consensus that there can be no free and fair elections in Haiti under the violent conditions that exist today. Nevertheless, the interim government is determined to hold elections in November of this year, despite rampant violence and the continuing imprisonment of Lavalas party leaders. Under these circumstances, it is hard to believe that the Haitian people would ever accept the results of the elections. Suspicion is already widespread that the interim government's real motive in keeping Prime Minister Neptune and Father Jean-Juste behind bars is to prevent them from running for office.
Sunday, September 4, 2005

The interim government's decision to let death squad leader Louis-Jodel Chamblain out of prison must be seen in light of the upcoming elections. Chamblain's history of organizing violence against political activists is enough to make any potential candidate afraid to run for office. Setting him free three months before the elections could possibly further endanger potential Lavalas candidates and lead to incidents like the 1994 Raboteau massacre, a brutal massacre in a low-income neighborhood, for which Chamblain was later convicted. We may never know why James B. Foley left his post as the Ambassador to Haiti. We may hope he decided that he could not in good conscience continue to stand by while the interim government imprisons potential candidates and allows violent criminals to control the countryside. Perhaps he grew tired of operating an embassy with a skeleton staff after other personnel returned to the United States to escape the escalating violence. What we do know is that there can never be free and fair elections in Haiti as long as thugs and killers are allowed to roam free and innocent priests and politicians remain behind bars. Congresswoman Maxine Waters ----------------------------------------Having said that and having read that, have a Happy Labor Day!

Stewardship
LEAVES
Leaves come in a wide variety of shapes. Even if you don’t recognize which trees they are from, you wouldn’t mistake an oak leaf for a pine needle or a weeping willow leaf for one from a maple. There are even differences among leaves in different types of the same tree. Yet, despite all their differences, all leaves have the same purpose: to make food for the tree using water, light and carbon dioxide. Without all three of these things, the tree cannot grow or even live. A church is like a tree, and its members are like leaves. Without their constant donations of time, talent and treasure, the church will soon suffer and may not survive. However, with careful stewardship, the church will flourish and a healthy church, like a healthy tree, will benefit others. It can be a source of food, shelter and inspiration too. Remember this as you decide how you can provide your time, talent and resources to make the “tree” flourish. Your Friends in Service, The Stewardship Ministry Constance A.
