7:30 a.m.

JEREMIAH 18:1-4 (NRSV)
1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 "Come, go down to the potter's house, and there I will let you hear my words." 3 So I went down to the potter's house, and there he was working at his wheel. 4 The vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter's hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as seemed good to him. -----------------------------11:00 a.m.

called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with humans, and have prevailed." 29 Then Jacob asked him, "Please tell me your name." But he said, "Why is it that you ask my name?" And there he blessed him. -----------------------------6:00 p.m.

PSALMS 27:1-6/13-14(NKJV)
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell. 3 Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war should rise against me, In this I will be confident. 4 One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple. 5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. 6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord. 13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. 14 Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!

GENESIS 32: 6-7a/22-29 (NRSV)
6 The messengers returned to Jacob, saying, "We came to your brother Esau, and he is coming to meet you, and four hundred men are with him." 7 Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed; 22 The same night he got up and took his two wives, his two maids, and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. 23 He took them and sent them across the stream, and likewise everything that he had. 24 Jacob was left alone; and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. 25 When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he struck him on the hip socket; and Jacob's hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. 26 Then he said, "Let me go, for the day is breaking." But Jacob said, "I will not let you go, unless you bless me." 27 So he said to him, "What is your name?" And he said, "Jacob." 28 Then the man said, "You shall no longer be

PASTOR’S PAGE
“YOU CAN’T BEAT GOD GIVING”
There is an “old-school” gospel song, which says: “You can’t beat God giving no matter how hard you try. The more you give, the more He’ll give to you. Just keep on giving…because it’s really true!” The words of that song are true. Our members from all walks of life can testify over and over again how God just outdoes God’s self when we give. God shows up and shows out! Of course, the word of God came through the Prophet Malachi 3,000 years ago saying the same thing. God opens up the windows of Heaven and pours us out blessings that are too manifold and too powerful for us to contain. God said that yet we don’t believe that too often. Since the double whammy of Hurricane Katrina and the Federal Government’s racist response to the poor Blacks “left behind” in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, the members of this congregation have been giving at an incredible rate and have found out, once again, just how true God is to God's word. You have not just been giving your dollars although the amount of your gifts have been incredible! (Just last Sunday you gave an additional $41,000 to Katrina Relief !) Your gifts of time, your gifts of food, water, hours of service, physical presence and the offering of your homes, your love and compassion to the evacuees have been overwhelming! In each instance, the more you have given the more God has given back to us! I am writing you to say, “Thank you.” I thank you for your sacrifices. Yes! We still have our school to build. Yes! We still have our mortgage to pay off. Yes! We still have our ministry that goes on. Our brothers and sisters in Africa are still depending on us in Saltpond, Ghana, in Guguletu, South Africa, at the Steve Biko Institute in Brazil and all around this world!
Sunday, September 18, 2005

We still support financially the Trinity United Church of Christ congregation in Gary, Indiana and the Sankofa United Church of Christ in Atlanta, Georgia. We still support the Kenwood United Church of Christ here in Chicago and the Advent Community United Church of Christ in Columbus, Ohio. We still support the United Negro College Fund and we still lift offerings to support our graduating high school seniors in order that they might get a college education. The work of our church goes on and the ministry of our church goes on. Yet, over and above what we normally do and what it is we do routinely, you have “stepped up to the plate” and demonstrated by your sacrifices (material, physical and financial), just what the Lord Jesus asked us to demonstrate. Jesus said, “In as much as you have done it unto the least of these my little ones, you have done it upon to me!” You keep doing for God and for that I am grateful. You keep doing for the “least of these,” and for that I am grateful. You keep on giving and God keeps on giving back to you. Thank you for who you are and thank you for all that you do. Sincerely and gratefully yours,

Pastor Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.

Pastor Lacey Curry formed the Emmanuel Baptist Church, which is now on Damen. Pastor Cosby’s family went with Pastor Curry and he finished his formative years at Emmanuel; but Mt. Calvary was his home church! Mt. Calvary is preparing to celebrate its 82nd year anniversary. Mt. Calvary is now pastored by the Reverend Tyrone Crider. Mt. Calvary is having four worship services to celebrate their 82 years. On Thursday, September 22, 2005, Dr. Marcus Cosby will be preaching one of those services at 7:00 p.m. at Mt. Calvary. Mt. Calvary is located at 111th and Troop. Except for our choir members who will be in Sanctuary Choir rehearsal that Thursday evening we are asking persons who are able to support Pastor Cosby to be with him and to share with him as he brings the Word of God with power.

VIRGINIA UNION UNIVERSITY
The chairman of the Board of Trustees at Virginia Union called me this past week to let me know that any student from Dillard and Xavier who wanted to come to Virginia Union would be welcome! Several of our students have said that they wanted to be at an HBCU. They did not want to be at Chicago State, Roosevelt or Northwestern. Virginia Union is an HBCU. Contact Dr. Gloria James, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs' Administrative Assistant, Carolyn Tabb, 804-257-5606. Sincerely,

TO DO

JUSTICE
Micah 6:8

By Rev. Reginald Williams

While FEMA and the government failed the poor black and white people affected by the broken levee in New Orleans, the media outlook on white people going in closed stores to find sustenance for themselves and their families was deemed as people seeking food. However, when a black person was shown affected by the same circumstances, and doing the same thing to find sustenance for themselves and their families, it was deemed as looting by the majority of media outlets. What was the difference? What changed? Nothing changed. It has been the same story since the founding of this country. Racism is interwoven into every thread of life in this country. The failure of the government to send assistance to poor blacks in New Orleans, as well as the characterization of Blacks as looters while Whites search for food is nothing more than what Dr. Marimba Ani has coined as “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
Sunday, September 18, 2005

essence is its deceptive effect in the service of European Power. Just as the rhetorical ethic is found in the racism that built this country, we can also find the racial rhetorical, which exists in the Bush Family. Upon viewing the living conditions of those displaced persons in the Houston Astrodome, Barbara Bush, the mother of George Bush stated that those conditions worked out well for them because many of them were underprivileged anyway. Now we see, in the words of Kanye West, why George Bush doesn’t care about Black people. He was taught that Blacks are not people for which to be cared.

ACTION ITEMS 1. Assist in any relief effort for the victims of Hurricane Katrina 2. BOYCOTT WAL-MART & SAMS CLUB Thought for this week: George Bush doesn’t care about Black people. ~ Kanye West

Stewardship
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 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 Given 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 resond to our faith community, the church which provides us with opportunities to heighten the effect of our stewardship. Indication of Our Values 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.

Amani Volunteer H o s p i ce Ca r e P r og r a m Amani Care Program
Amani is a Ki-Swahili word, the essence of which means Healing, Wholeness and Peace with God, both in this world as well as in our eternal home with God.

If you are interested in volunteering your services, we are offering a two-weekend training session beginning Friday, September 23rd, 5:30 - 9:00 p.m. at the Trinity UCC Village Center, 1947 West 95th Street, Room 301. The rest of the schedule is as follows: Saturday, September 24th, 11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m., Trinity Oaks Senior Building, 6225 S. Drexel, Fellowship/Community Room

Friday, September 30th, 5:30 - 9:00 p.m., Trinity UCC Village Center, 1947 W. 95th Street, Room 301
