2 CHRONICLES 20:15B-19 (NRSV)
15 Thus says the Lord to you: ‘Do not fear or be dismayed at this great multitude; for the battle is not yours but God's. 16 Tomorrow go down against them; they will come up by the ascent of Ziz; you will find them at the end of the valley, before the wilderness of Jeruel. 17 This battle is not for you to fight; take your position, stand still, and see the victory of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, and the Lord will be with you." 18 Then Jehoshaphat bowed down with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the Lord, worshiping the Lord. 19 And the Levites, of the Kohathites and the Korahites, stood up to praise the Lord, the God of Israel, with a very loud voice.

army, saying, "Give thanks to the Lord, for his steadfast love endures forever." 22 As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set an ambush against the Ammonites, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah, so that they were routed. 23 For the Ammonites and Moab attacked the inhabitants of Mount Seir, destroying them utterly; and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they all helped to destroy one another.

2 CHRONICLES 20:24-28 (NRSV)
24 When Judah came to the watchtower of the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude; they were corpses lying on the ground; no one had escaped. 25 When Jehoshaphat and his people came to take the booty from them, they found livestock in great numbers, goods, clothing, and precious things, which they took for themselves until they could carry no more. They spent three days taking the booty, because of its abundance. 26 On the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Beracah, for there they blessed the Lord; therefore that place has been called the Valley of Beracah to this day. 27 Then all the people of Judah and Jerusalem, with Jehoshaphat at their head, returned to Jerusalem with joy, for the Lord had enabled them to rejoice over their enemies. 28 They came to Jerusalem, with harps and lyres and trumpets, to the house of the Lord.

2 CHRONICLES 20:20-23 (NRSV)
20 They rose early in the morning and went out into the wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, "Listen to me, O Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God and you will be established; believe his prophets." 21 When he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed those who were to sing to the Lord and praise him in holy splendor, as they went before the

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

Hold To God’s Unchanging Hand
Verse I Time is filled with swift transition, Naught of earth unmoved can stand, Build your hopes on things eternal, Hold to God’s unchanging hand! Chorus Hold to God’s unchanging hand! Hold to God’s unchanging hand! Build your hopes on things eternal, Hold to God’s unchanging hand! Verse II Trust in Him who will not leave you, Whatsoever years may bring, If by earthly friends forsaken, Still more closely to Him cling! (Repeat Chorus) Verse III Covet not this world’s vain riches, That so rapidly decay; Seek to gain the heav’nly treasures, They will never pass away! (Repeat Chorus) Verse IV When your journey is completed, If to God you have been true, Fair and bright the home in glory, Your enraptured soul will view! (Repeat Chorus)

Just A Closer Walk With Thee
Chorus Just a closer walk with Thee, Grant it, Jesus, if you please, Daily walking close to Thee, Let it be, dear Lord, let it be. Verse I I am weak, but Thou art strong; Jesus, keep me from all wrong; I’ll be satisfied as long As I walk, let me walk close to Thee. (Repeat Chorus) Verse II Through this world of toil and snares, If I falter, Lord, who cares? Who with me my burden shares? None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee. (Repeat Chorus) Verse III When my feeble life is o’er, Time for me will be no more; Guide me gently, safely o’er To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore. (Repeat Chorus)

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.

The Making Of African American Identity
I have some great news for all high school teachers of history, literature and art! The news is about the “Summer Institutes for High School Teachers of History, Literature, and Art.” The institutes next year will be held from June 25 - July 7, 2006 at the National Humanities Center for Research in Triangle Park, North Carolina. Plan now to attend these institutes and build on your knowledge of our people and our rich heritage. Some of the topics to be covered include: How did enslaved Africans create a distinctive culture on American plantations? How did the protracted struggle for equal rights shape African American self-definition? In 2006 the National Humanities Center will explore these and other questions in two summer institutes on the making of African American identity. The first will explore the years from the arrival of Africans in the British colonies through emancipation. The second will cover the early twentieth century through the Civil Rights Movement. Under the direction of Center Fellows and other distinguished scholars, participants in each seminar will study a rigorous syllabus consisting of literary texts, historical documents and art. They will assist Center staff in identifying texts for two online seminar toolboxes that will complement The Making of African American Identity: 1865-1917. Participants will receive a stipend of

$1,000. The National Humanities Center will cover the cost of travel and provide lodging, some meals and all texts. Once again, The institutes will be held from June 25 to July 7, 2006, at the National Humanities Center in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. The application deadline is March 3, 2006. The institutes are open to high school teachers of history, literature and art. The Making of African American Identity, I: 1619-1865 & II: 1915-1968 are made possible by a grant from the Wachovia Corporation.

A Pastoral Letter to the Congregation of Trinity United Church of Christ
My Dearly Beloved in the Lord: Grace, peace and mercy be unto you from God, our Father, and from Jesus Christ, our Savior. I write you on this historic day in the life of our congregation and I write you with a sense of humility and gratitude. It is an humbling feeling to be in a position of leadership at such a moment in time as this. Today we burn the mortgage on this worship center and we find ourselves debt-free for the first time in 44 years! I am grateful to God for the goodness of God and for the hard work of God’s people.

for the hard work of God’s people. As I look back over the thirty-three and a half years that I have been here as Pastor, my heart is overflowing with joy, with gratitude, with love and with expectation. I have tried for thirty-three and a half years to follow the lead of the Good Shepherd. I have been able to do that because I have been blessed with a congregation who has trusted my leadership and trusted me to hear the Word of God, preach the Word of God and live the Word of God. As we end one chapter of our life together by becoming debt free today, we stand at the opening of a new chapter which is exciting, inviting and challenging! We are in the midst of preparing ourselves for the future toward which God is calling us, and we are about to realize our dream for an African-centered Christian school, a church whose giving is based on biblical principles and ministries that “serve this present age.” Being at this juncture in our history puts us in a “Season of Change.” We are changing our understandings of stewardship from a “me” and “my” mentality to an ours and us reality. I am writing you on this Anniversary Sunday to ask you to embrace the changes that we are making as we reorganize and strengthen our ministry for the facing of this day and for the embracing of a new day! operations of our church. We have looked at all of our ministries, all of our programs, all of our staffing and all of our benevolences. We have looked at how we deploy staff. We have looked at how we utilize the resources of the membership. We have looked at the various ministries in this city and around the globe that we have been supporting. We have looked at our Vision Statement, our Mission Statement and the dollars that we allocate to fulfill our ministry. For almost two years now we have been examining every aspect of the life of this congregation. The examination, the assessments, the self-critique and the hard work have shown us what we have done right and that examination has also shown us what we need to do to strengthen those areas where we are weak. We are taking steps right now to strengthen those areas where we have been weak. On this Anniversary Sunday we step out boldly into some uncharted waters. We strike out boldly into some uncharted waters, but we travel on the “Old Ship of Zion” and King Jesus is still the captain! We are moving through a season of change based on what we have seen looking back. We are moving into a season of challenge based upon what we have discovered by looking back. We move with confidence and we are guided by three principles which make us better stewards:

Looking Back For over eighteen months now (looking back) we have been examining all of the

and adjusting our operations, our policies and the way we do ministry as we serve a more diverse, expanded and challenged people of God. We strive to address the demands and the needs of God’s people while remaining faithful to what it means to be “Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian.” A realignment of staff and ministry is necessary to move in accordance with God’s design. age!” To do so, transition is necessary. We have to adapt to “this present age.” We have a legacy that has been built. We also have a legacy that we leave for the generations who follow us and to insure that our invaluable legacy is in place we must be flexible, adaptable and open to the leading of God’s direction. As we adhere to these three principles we are doing so structurally in the following manner. I have served as Pastor for thirtythree and a half years. I will be here 34 years (if the Lord says the same) come the first Sunday in March of 2006. As Pastor, I recommended to the Board of Directors that we appoint an Executive Assessment/Management Team. That team will help me to guide us through this season of change, this season of adaptability, this season of accountability and this season of realignment. I am writing you, my beloved in Christ, to ask you as members of the congregation to support the vision that God has given me. I am writing you, my beloved, to ask that each member of this congregation remain in prayer for me, for my leadership, for the vision that God has given me and for the wellbeing of our church. I am asking each member of the congregation to pray for all our ministries and for all of our staff. I am asking you to reflect upon the ways in which you, as individuals, can personally increase the sharing of your resources, your talents, your time and your tithes!

Accountability In order to sustain and strengthen the best of all that we have done and all that we have become over the past four decades, we are putting more emphasis on what it means to be accountable to God and accountable to each other in doing the work of God. From this day forward we are being more accountable in terms of seeing to it that our resources are being best used to keep us strong, keep us thriving and keep us on the cutting edge of ministry in the 21st century. Adaptability In order to face the challenges which lie ahead of us, we have to be flexible. We have to adapt the way we have been doing things to the way we need to do things. We are changing how we were to how we must be! In this season of adaptability we are preparing in a planned and systematic fashion to make several transitions over the next few years. We hear the words of the hymn “A Charge To Keep I Have,” and we respond to those words. We must “serve this present

As I have been asking for thirty-three and a half years, I am asking once again that every member ask God about becoming a tither! If you tithe your time, tithe your talent and tithe your treasure, your focus will be on God and not on gossip! On the matter of gossip, I am asking that every member focus on the things of God and not on the rumors or inappropriate behavior of others who are trying their best to cause ill will. When you hear gossip and negativity, ask yourself this question: Do I trust the man of God who has been leading us for 34 years? Or do I listen to somebody who has not been here and does not know the whole story? I am counting on each member to help support the vision that God has given me. I am counting on each member to help me make sure that together we can move forward as God directs; together we can move forward as good stewards, and together we can move forward into the future toward which God is calling us. I wish you a Happy Anniversary on this Sunday and I ask you to stand with me in prayer as God gives us the victory. Respectfully yours,

Countdown to 2006!
We said on the last Sunday of October that we would work together, save together, sacrifice together and give together to put the $300,000 we borrowed from our own savings to pay off the mortgage which we burn today. As of last Sunday, through your sacrificial giving over and above your tithes, we have been able to raise $130,778.24. We have today and three Sundays left in the year to raise the balance. We also have Kwanzaa services and Watch Meeting service to bring in the gifts. We are counting down to 2006! Our commitment was to raise an additional $300,000 over and above tithes and offerings by December 31st. I committed to give an extra $3,000 ($1,000 each month). Many members have joined me in giving $1,000. Others have joined at all kinds of levels. Some are giving $100 a week. Some are giving $100 a month. Some are giving whatever they can give after giving their tithes. We have said for 30 years that we cannot all give the same thing; but we can all give something! Together we can do it! Give today and give God the glory for the VICTORY that is ours through Jesus Christ. Pastor Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.

advent MEDITATION - 2
ADVENT – BODY AND SOUL “TAKE A BOW”
Entering into Advent with both body and soul calls for a number of different postures. Normally, both physically and spiritually, the best choice is to stand straight and tall. If we stood “at attention” all the time, though, we might miss some of the things that are to be found on the ground around us. We need to bend over, if we are to find a four-leaf clover. The best of spiritual life is found as we seek to enter it humbly. To see a little baby in a manger, we need to get off the camels, which have brought us to this place. Approach with humble awe, for it was the star that led us here, not our own wisdom. Bowing before Jesus, we sense that God often comes to us in small events and insights. The bow we take in Advent is not the act of a performer, whose art and ability are being recognized by applause. It is, rather, an act of reverence before God, who makes our life possible. It is a special kind of action. We bow, but we do not cower. We, in awe, “fear” God, but we are not afraid. We stoop, but we are not stooped. We bow only to reach a greater spiritual height. Sensing the greatness and purity of God, we cannot help but acknowledge our own relative smallness and impurity. We readily admit our faults and shortcomings, but this is a step toward improvement. If we have been proudly patting ourselves on the back, it may be time to bring our hands together in prayer. If our hands have been in our pockets, we may need to reach out and help someone. Scripture tells us that those who humble themselves will be exalted. If we bow before God, God may reach out a hand and say to us, “Arise!”

A Prayer for Hope and Healing God’s Light and My Salvation One: God of Endless Mercy, People: Hear our prayer. One: O, that you would break through the heavens and come down. People: O, that you would speak the word that is the end of AIDS and with your hand take away HIV from the world. One: When you did awesome deeds that we did not expect, you came down, the mountains quaked with your presence. People: Now we quake with a plague that ravages bodies, families, churches, communities and our world. One: Have you hidden your face from us God? People: Millions have died. Millions are sick. Millions are orphaned. Millions are at risk. Millions can be saved. One: After all this, will you restrain yourself, O God? Will you keep silent. People: O God, your children are living with AIDS, and AIDS is not silent. One: The sound of AIDS can be heard in the cries of children, mothers, fathers, partners, friends and all those who have lost loved ones to this disease. People: O God, your children are living with AIDS, and AIDS is not silent. One: The sounds of AIDS can be heard in every land and every language on earth.

feel helpless to stop it.

One: At times we push away AIDS and people with AIDS. We deny its affect on us. We cover our heads, our eyes, our ears and our hearts, but still it grows. People: After all this, will we restrain ourselves? Will we remain silent? One: O God, that you would break through the heavens and come down. People: Break through our silence, God. Help us lend our voices to our sisters, brothers, fathers, mothers, children, friends and all those living with AIDS or are at risk of HIV infection. One: We light candles. Let them lift our hopes. People: Let them also light our hands as we work, educate, act and care to stop HIV and AIDS. One: On this day, God end our silence. On this day, end our fear and begin a new fight for life. People: Replace the sound of this disease with the sound of our voices speaking out, lifting up, teaching, demanding change. One: God, gives us the strength and conviction to be the hope we seek in the world. People: God, break through into the world through us. Help us end the silence; help us to be the word that is the end of AIDS. Amen. This litany was written by Eric C. Smith

STEWARDSHIP
ONE OF THE AFFAIRS OF GOD: BEARING
The affairs of God can be described by three words which rhyme. They are caring, sharing and bearing. Bearing the burden of the cost to support the work of God in the world, whether through charitable donations, raising money for a particular need, or even paying our taxes, is the third way in which we carry out the affairs of God, entrusted to us. TREASURE MANAGEMENT Many of us are able to turn our abilities into profit – through a job, for pay. But whether we work for a salary or are on welfare, whether we have inherited our money, receive a pension check, or get a weekly allowance, how we manage whatever treasure we have shows how we value God’s loving generosity to us. STEWARDSHIP BY EXAMPLE The best way to lead is by example. As leaders, our responsibility is to set a positive example for others. When we put Christ at the center of our lives, that witness draws others to service and support of the church’s mission. The Stewardship Ministry Constance A. King, Editor Stacey Moore, Chairperson

By Rev. Reginald Williams

With the nomination of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, it is clear that should he be confirmed, the court will unevenly lean to the conservative right, meaning that civil rights and civil liberties will be adversely affected. Consider the record of Alito. As an appellate judge, he argued that Pennsylvania had the right to require a woman seeking an abortion to notify her husband. This requirement was found to be a noxious burden on women by Justice O’Connor and the Supreme Court. Alito further argued for the endorsement of what essentially are a man’s property rights over his wife’s reproductive choices - an argument which reduces women to sub-humanity, in the sight of Alito. In other cases, he has taken the side of large corporations against smaller competitors. In sexual and racial discrimination suits, he has increased the barriers by which victims could sue and get damages awarded to them. Moreover, many of his positions, taken in lower courts, have been overturned by the Supreme Court. The irony is that many of his decisions were overturned with Sandra Day O’Connor being the deciding vote. Alito, is the one nominated to replace her on the Supreme Court. His nomination will hurt the civil rights and civil liberties of Americans for years to come. Urge your Senators to vote against the Alito confirmation. ACTION ITEMS: 1. Urge your Senator to vote against Alito a. Senator Barack Obama (312) 886-3506 (312) 886-3514 fax Toll free: (866) 445-2520 (for IL residents only) b.
