unison scripture
7:30 a.m.

14 When the people set out from their tents to cross over the Jordan, the priests bearing the ark of the covenant were in front of the people. 15 Now the Jordan overflows all its banks throughout the time of harvest. So when those who bore the ark had come to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests bearing the ark were dipped in the edge of the water, 16 the waters flowing from above stood still, rising up in a single heap far off at Adam, the city that is beside Zarethan, while those flowing toward the sea of the Arabah, the Dead Sea, were wholly cut off. Then the people crossed over opposite Jericho. 17 While all Israel were crossing over on dry ground, the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan, until the entire nation finished crossing over the Jordan. 4:1 When the entire nation had finished crossing over the Jordan, the LORD said to Joshua: 2 "Select twelve men from the people, one from each tribe, 3 and command them, 'Take twelve stones from here out of the middle of the Jordan, from the place where the priests' feet stood, carry them over with you, and lay them down in the place where you camp tonight.'" 4 Then Joshua summoned the twelve men from the Israelites, whom he had appointed, one from each tribe. 5 Joshua said to them, "Pass on before the ark of the LORD your God into the middle of the Jordan, and each of you take up a stone on his shoulder, one for each of the tribes of the Israelites, 6 so that this may be a sign among you. When your children ask in time to come, 'What do those stones mean to you?' 7 then you shall tell them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off

in front of the ark of the covenant of the LORD. When it crossed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. So these stones shall be to the Israelites a memorial forever." _________________________

3 Joseph said to his brothers, "I am Joseph. Is my father still alive?" But his brothers could not answer him, so dismayed were they at his presence. 4 Then Joseph said to his brothers, "Come closer to me." And they came closer. He said, "I am your brother, Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt. 5 And now do not be distressed, or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life. 6 For the famine has been in the land these two years; and there are five more years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvest. 7 God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant on earth, and to keep alive for you many survivors. 8 So it was not you who sent me here, but God; he has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house and ruler over all the land of Egypt. 9 Hurry and go up to my father and say to him, 'Thus says your son Joseph, God has made me lord of all Egypt; come down to me, do not delay. 10 You shall settle in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near me, you and your children and your children's children, as well as your flocks, your herds, and all that you have. 11 I will provide for you there - since there are five more years of famine to come so that you and your household, and all that you have, will not come to poverty.'

unison scripture
6:00 p.m.

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." 33 They answered Him, "We are Abraham's descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can you say, 'You will be made free'?" 34 Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 "And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 "Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

THE SOLID ROCK
VERSE I My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus' blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus' name. CHORUS On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand All other ground is sinking sand, All other ground is sinking sand. VERSE II When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace; In ev'ry high and stormy gale My anchor holds within the veil. (Repeat Chorus) VERSE III His oath, His covenant, His blood Support me in the whelming flood; When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay.(Repeat Chorus) VERSE IV When He shall come with trumpet sound, O may I then in Him be found, Dressed in His righteousness alone, Faultless to stand before the throne. (Repeat Chorus)

Congratulations to Thomas Maxwell and Michael Thibodeaux
On Sunday, February 26th, from noon until four, two of our members are being honored. Thomas Maxwell and Michael Thibodeaux are being honored by the Knights of Peter Claver Ladies Auxiliary (St. Felicitas and St. Albie Court 181). The Knights of Peter Claver Auxiliary (St. Felicitas and St. Albie Court 181) are sponsoring the 12th Annual Archbishop James P. Lyke African American Image Award Banquet. Thomas Maxwell and Michael Thibodeaux are recipients of the 2006 African American Male Image Award! The banquet will be held at the Condessa Del Mar at 12220 South Cicero Avenue. ___________________________ the denominational licenses of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the United Methodist Church and the Global Ministries of the Disciples of Christ and the United Church of Christ. Representatives Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Jim McGovern (D-MA) and a Sister, Barbara Lee (D-CA), have written a letter to Treasury Secretary John Snow challenging these travel restrictions. They have invited their colleagues in the House of Representatives to sign this letter. This is a letter that most members, both Republicans and Democrats, are likely to sign if they hear from their constituents. Last week we urged you to contact your representatives in Congress by Thursday the 16th. Today we are asking you once again to send a message to your member of Congress, urging him or her to sign the letter to Secretary John Snow, asking the U.S. Treasury to allow church organizations to continue building relationships and reaching out to sister churches in Cuba.

Renew Church Travel to Cuba
Dear Trinity Members: As was mentioned and reported last week, for the past two years, the US Treasury Department has implemented new unilateral restrictions on travel to Cuba that prohibit practically all institutional and ecumenical religious travel to Cuba, except for that of individual congregations. Additionally, in an unprecedented move, the Treasury Department rejected the renewal request of the travel license held by the National Council of Churches, as well as

Palestinian People Forgotten in Aid Vote
Dear Trinity Members: In a purely symbolic action, this week, the House is scheduled to vote on the Thune bill, a non-binding sense of Congress resolution, to deny direct U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority under its newly-elected

government. On January 26, the HAMAS party (an Arabic acronym for Islamic Resistance Movement), won 76 of 132 parliamentary seats in Palestinian election, giving the party the right to form the next cabinet which serves under Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas (of the Palestinian Fatah party). The U.S. State Department lists the HAMAS movement as a terrorist organization, and HAMAS has consistently refused the right of Israel to exist. That HAMAS overwhelmingly won the popular vote was due, in part, to its strong reputation as a major provider of social services, and it will be expected to deliver results for the Palestinian people in its new role. The party has discussed removing language in its charter condoning terrorism and denying Israel’s right to exist. If it does, and if Israel were to affirm the right of Palestinians to a state, both sides could move beyond a terrible (and potentially very violent) stalemate. The vote on this bill will likely be unanimous, since the U.S. already denies direct assistance to the Palestinian Authority, directing most of its aid through the U.S. Agency for International Development, to Palestinian non-governmental organizations or through Israeli-controlled accounts. But lost in the debate is the tremendous economic suffering inflicted on the Palestinian people by the U.S. role in the continued deterioration of the Palestinian condition, coupled with Israeli unilateralism. The occupation has strangled Palestinian comSunday, February 19, 2006

The U.S. should honor its financial commitments and continue in its role in negotiating a two-state solution.

Biblical Self-Defense Classes!
For the past thirty years, the general public, the news media and those who really don’t know anything at all about our denomination have categorized and classified our denomination as being “that gay church.” Since July 4th of 2005, the “heat” has been turned up even more so by persons who reacted to newspaper articles about the vote that was taken at the General Synod of the

that was taken at the General Synod of the United Church of Christ. Those people did not read what was passed and those people have absolutely no idea what the General Synod is nor how its votes affect or do not affect local congregations. The bottom line is they just read the newspaper articles and began to call us all kinds of nasty names! The problem is exacerbated by the fact that most members of Trinity do not know how to answer them! This is nothing new, however. Ever since our church took stands in support of the Blacks in South Africa, the African National Congress and the fight against Apartheid, we have been under attack from socalled Christians who have seen our denomination’s position as “against the Bible.” After all, didn’t God say Black folk were cursed and to be “hewers of wood and drawers of water?” Ever since our denomination took stands against racism, against sexism, against segregation and against “the way things are” in this country, we have been under attack by the right-wing Christians who do not believe that our denomination’s social and theological positions are “biblical.” If someone were to run into you this week (and you have already run into this type of person) and accuse you of belonging to a church “that does not believe in the Bible,” how would you answer? The Reverend Dr. Susan Thistlethwaite has a way of helping you answer! Dr. Thistlethwaite is the president of the Chicago Theological Seminary. That is the seminary that is related to our denomination.

She is offering a new six-week online class B called “Biblical and Theological Self-Defense for the United Church of Christ.” The web-based classroom will allow you to have interchange as a student with your teacher. It will also allow you to download reading materials and have student-to-student interaction. Material covered in this online course will range from the theoretical (including Basic Introduction to Theology, Christology and Ethics) to the ultra-practical which will help you to respond to verbal attacks against your denomination, your congregation and/or your personal beliefs. Beginning the week of March 27th, the online not-for-credit course will cost only $45.00 per person. Our congregation can enroll multiple church members for the single $45.00 audit fee if you contact the Department of Christian Education this week and let them know you are interested in going that route. You can also get course credit if you would like. The full tuition will be required, however, and students will need to make arrangements to attend a five-day, on campus class from May 15th through May 19th if you want full course credit. B Registration for the “Biblical SelfDefense” class is required before March 24th and you need to hurry if you are interested in taking the course. Enrollment is limited to one hundred students!

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.

To Do
By Rev. Reginald Williams

Justice
Micah 6:8

Actions speak louder than words. I’d rather see a sermon than hear one any day. These phrases speak to the fact that one’s actions really display the character of an individual. In other words, you can tell a lot about a person by what they do. Moreover, you can tell a lot about a person’s or an entity’s priorities by how they spend their money. With that premise in our midst, let us turn to the national budget, and the proposed terminations and reductions put forth by the Resident of the White House. Consider the following facts.

Proposed terminations include:
Education - $3,468,000,000.00 Health & Human Services - $866,000,000.00 Justice - $1,116,000,000.00 Labor - $180,000,000 Total Proposed Terminations $5,630,000,000.00

Proposed cuts include:
Education - $800,000,000.00 Health & Human Services - $199,000,000.00 Labor - $583,000,000.00 Total Proposed Cuts - $1,582,000,000.00

The proposed terminations display the disdain of the Resident and his partners for the least of these. The policies of the Resident are not only focused on killing education, human services, justice and jobs, but also people. While cuts are being made to funds that help people, billions and billions more are being sent to kill people and steal oil from other people. Meanwhile, residents of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast still are without FEMA trailers and shelter. Some are still living miles from home in shelters and makeshift living situations. When will we wake up and demand that this Resident be impeached? Bush makes it clear that his priorities are on his pocket, and not the welfare of all people. Demand IMPEACHMENT NOW!!!!
