MARK 10:13-16 (NIV)
13 People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.

HEBREWS 12:1-3 (NRSV)
1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such hostility against himself from sinners, so that you may not grow weary or lose heart.

1 SAMUEL 17:50-51 (NRSV)

“PRE-MARDI GRAS”
The country is gearing up for the Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans, Louisiana. Our member, Dr. Danille Guthrie, teaches at Dillard in New Orleans; and she has written the following piece for your prayerful consideration: to return. We are operating in the Humanities with thirty full-time faculty. I am so grateful. We had around 50. Some faculty could not return for various reasons. I have a faculty member who was caught in the flood and stayed at the Convention Center. The stories are incredible. I have never cried so much in my life. The incredible thing is the sparks of life the return of students has brought to the city. All the universities are open, and we all struggle with our own logistical issues. We lack resources and space but are infinite in our resourcefulness and patience. We are all also crazy. MY FEMA TRAILER ARRIVED . . . but they haven't hooked up the electricity!? I think that is a perfect example of the limbo life we live. We go to the wash and fold. Eating becomes a major set of negotiations with calories and the wallet for the day. Oh, to cook a meal! But it is a “hell of a place to bring your family!” (Bush) And a city that will be “Chocolate” again. Lord, save us from politicians! We have the “Bring Back New Orleans Plan” which was headed by a real estate developer. The report recommends a moratorium on

Dearly Beloved, We are in the season of Carnival, a time of year I have come to appreciate and love since I moved to New Orleans. Most are more aware of Mardi Gras, but the season begins with Three Kings Day and culminates with Lent and Easter. But this year, I have mixed feelings... As you are probably aware Dillard is operating at the Hilton Riverside. Students, faculty and staff live, work and play at the Hilton and Marriot. It was quite amazing. We prepared for the return of 800 students and over 1000 came. We even had to turn many away. Housing is the critical issue for the city, and we ran out of space. It was wonderful when I was calling faculty all over the country beseeching them

moratorium on rebuilding for four months. I bet he lives in his house! It is madness, a tremendous land grab. I need to form a real estate investment corporation to buy up some of this property, because someone is going to make a lot of money! It is the feeling of powerlessness that further traumatizes us. It is debilitating. So rather than be the victim, I run down to City Hall to get the building permit I had applied for online. I will not wait. This is BS. (Pastor Wright taught us that "B.S." means Bush's Stuff!) I have a new roof, duct work completed, and the electrician comes in next week. I need a home! Oh yes, the trailer sits on my front lawn. I call it my “Love Nest” because you can only be in there with folk you really like. PLEASE, PLEASE know that we need your support; we have so much work to do. This is no quick fix. The whole region is still suffering. Those displaced around you need your understanding because they are missing home, trying to adjust. This is not something one can just get over.

Ecumenical Advocacy Days for Global Peace with Justice "CHALLENGING DISPARITY: THE PROMISE OF GOD THE POWER OF SOLIDARITY"
March 10-13, 2006 in Washington, D.C.

The time has come for a new vision of U.S. public policy! On March 10, 2006, over 800 faithful Christians will gather in Washington, D.C. to challenge the shocking economic and social disparities endured by too many of our sisters and brothers. The tragic natural disasters of the past year have demonstrated that individual generosity must go hand-in-hand with a vigorous government

commitment to the common good. Biblical faith leads us to a comprehensive understanding of moral values in public policy. Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace and advocate for the vulnerable, inspires us to act in solidarity. Participants will examine U.S. policy, worship together and network with other justice advocates. The event, sponsored annually by the United Church of Christ, the Christian Church Disciples of Christ and many other Protestant and Catholic organizations, will culminate in a massive lobbying effort on Capitol Hill on March 13, 2006.

To Do
By Rev. Reginald Williams

Justice
Micah 6:8

On Wednesday of last week, Resident Bush signed into law the Deficit Reduction Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 2005. With his signature, Medicaid recipients can expect higher co-payments and deductibles. College students may face higher interest rates on student loans. Work requirements for women on welfare are likely to be tightened. Federal aid to states for child-support enforcement will be curtailed. This bill was signed in the same week that support for those ravaged by Hurricane Katrina were forced to depart from their FEMA-funded hotel rooms, many with nowhere to go. This is also the same week that Bush paid homage to Coretta Scott King. I am always amazed at how actions contradict words. Bush lauded Mrs. King as one who tried to bring us together, yet the policies of the government continue to push people apart based on race and class. The actions of Bush and FEMA this week echo the actions of Bush two years ago when he laid a wreath on Dr. King’s crypt, and appointed a judge, Charles Pickering, the next day who went against everything Dr. King stood for. The contradiction in words and actions lies in the fact that the government’s policies and procedures have failed its people, while words were lifted, honoring one who lived and fought for people.

Action Items: 1. DO NOT SHOP AT WAL-MART OR SAM’S CLUB

Thought for the Week: Power concedes nothing without a demand. ~Frederick Douglass

WOMEN’S CONFERENCE

STEWARDSHIP
THE OFFERING FOR FELLOW BELIEVERS
In 1 Corinthians 16, Paul talks about giving of our material possessions to God: Now about the collection for God's people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do. On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made. 1 Corinthians 16:1 (NIV) “On the first day of the week” means that giving is a regular, planned activity, and not a “when I get around to it” function. “Each one of you” means that each person, as an individual, has a particular responsibility to give. Giving to God is not a responsibility that can be shifted to someone else. “In keeping with his income,” Paul does not state the exact amount we are to give because each can give according to his prosperity. The more the prosperity, the greater the amount given. To sum up Paul’s stewardship theology: Give at a regular interval from a responsible position with a grateful heart and in proportion to what you have received. The Stewardship Ministry Constance A. King, Editor James Butler, Chairperson

Dear Sisters in the Lord, To God be the glory for each one of you! As co-conveners of Women’s Conference 2005, we mailed out a donation appeal last September to all of our past conference attendees, setting a target date of October 28, 2005. Although we only made half of our goal, we offer you our heartfelt gratitude for your generous response. Whatever amount you gave was appreciated and received with grateful hearts. The donations continue to come in and we continue to praise God from whom all blessings flow. We look forward to seeing all of you at Women’s Conference 2006, May 18-20th, 2006. May God richly bless you and all those whom you love throughout this new year. Yours in Christ Jesus, Rev. Barbara A. Heard and Rev. Ramah E. Wright Co-Conveners, Women’s Conference 2005-6
