UNISON SCRIPTURE
7:30 a.m. 11:00 a.m.

PSALM 111 (NRSV)
1 Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation. 2 Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them. 3 Full of honor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever. 4 He has gained renown by his wonderful deeds; the Lord is gracious and merciful. 5 He provides food for those who fear him; he is ever mindful of his covenant. 6 He has shown his people the power of his works, in giving them the heritage of the nations. 7 The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. 8 They are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness. 9 He sent redemption to his people; he has commanded his covenant forever. Holy and awesome is his name. 10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever.

PSALM 112 (NRSV)
1 Praise the Lord! Happy are those who fear the Lord, who greatly delight in his commandments. 2 Their descendants will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. 3 Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever. 4 They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and righteous. 5 It is well with those who deal generously and lend, who conduct their affairs with justice. 6 For the righteous will never be moved; they will be remembered forever. 7 They are not afraid of evil tidings; their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord. 8 Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraid; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes. 9 They have distributed freely, they have given to the poor; their righteousness endures forever; their horn is exalted in honor. 10 The wicked see it and are angry; they gnash their teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked comes to nothing.

PSALM 113 (NRSV)
1 Praise the Lord! Praise, O servants of the Lord; praise the name of the Lord. 2 Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time on and forevermore. 3 From the rising of the sun to its setting the name of the Lord is to be praised. 4 The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. 5 Who is like the Lord our God, who is seated on high, 6 who looks far down on the heavens and the earth? 7 He raises the poor from the dust, and lifts the needy from the ash heap, 8 to make them sit with princes, with the princes of his people. 9 He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the Lord!

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

How Great Thou Art
VERSE I O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made, I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy pow'r thru-out the universe displayed! Chorus Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee; How great Thou art, how great Thou art! Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee; How great Thou art, how great Thou art! VERSE II When thru the woods and forest glades I wander And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees, When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze, (Repeat Chorus) VERSE III And when I think that God, His Son not sparing, Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died to take away my sin (Repeat Chorus) VERSE IV When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart! Then I shall bow in humble adoration And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art! (Repeat Chorus)
Sunday, March 19, 2006

All Hail The Power
VERSE I All hail the pow'r of Jesus' name! Let angels prostrate fall, Let angels prostrate fall. Bring forth the royal diadem, And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, And crown Him Lord of all! VERSE II Ye chosen seed of Israel's race, Ye ransomed from the Fall, Ye ransomed from the Fall, Hail Him who saves you by His grace, And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, And crown Him Lord of all! VERSE III Let ev'ry kindred, ev'ry tribe, On this terrestrial ball, On this terrestrial ball, To Him all majesty ascribe, And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, And crown Him Lord of all! VERSE IV Oh, that with yonder sacred throng We at His feet may fall, We at His feet may fall! We'll join the everlasting song, And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, And crown Him Lord of all!

PA S T O R ’S PA G E LENTEN SERIES 2006
During this Lenten Season as many members of the congregation are praying the daily prayer (engaging in the spiritual exercise) of Honest Examination, Relational Restoration and Total Transformation (Get the sermons from Ash Wednesday to join in with us.), I invite you to join with me in the sermonic investigation of the songs sung by the people of faith during this season of the year. We will be looking at the songs Jesus sang during the pre-Passover and Passover season as we move toward Holy Week. The twelve-part series is based upon the idea put forth in the hymn "God Leads His Dear Children Along." In the chorus of that hymn, the writer says: Some through the water, Some through the flood, Some through the fire; But all through the blood Some through great sorrows, But God gives a song In the night season And all the day long. The hymn is saying that God gives a song in the night season. The people of faith were given a song by God in "the night season" of their slavery in Egypt. That is when the songs we will be looking at were written and sung. We are in a night season as Africans living in Diaspora in 21st century America, but God gives us a song too. Join me as we look sermonically at the similarities and differences between the settings which produced these songs and the settings in which "our songs" are sung. Place your order for the entire 12-part series today.

PA S T O R ’S PA G E
Justice Ministries Alert
Congress has started work on next year’s federal budget FY 2007. The first step in the process is the budget resolution, an outline of federal spending for the next year. The budget resolution sets the total dollars to be available for all the services funded by the federal government, and also sets tax levels (including tax cuts, if they so choose). The budget resolution does not make decisions about funding levels for individual services, but if the funding is too low, it will force program cuts later on. As early as this past week (March 13th), the full Senate may have taken up its version of the budget resolution, with the House expected to take it up early in April. There is currently a stalemate among House Republicans on how deep to cut spending, or whether to force more spending cuts on vital programs like Medicare at all this year. It is extremely important that we as advocates tell our members of Congress not to set the funding totals so low that harmful cuts are inevitable, and not to include unfair and unaffordable tax cuts. If we allow Congress to shortchange the budget now, later on, the only way to increase funding for one important service will be to cut another one - the old trick of robbing Peter to pay Paul.

Race, Culture and Religion
by Dwight N. Hopkins
“Rather than defining ‘the human’ as one eternal or inviolable essence, Hopkins looks to the multiple and conflicting notions of the human in contemporary thought, and particularly three key variables: culture, self and race.” Cornel West, University Professor of Religion, Princeton University

TO DO

JUSTICE

Micah 6:8

In 2004, we as a congregation sent letters to the Illinois State Legislature in support of a bill which would cap homeowners' property tax value increases at 7% in any given year. Because legislators heard from you, this bill was passed and enacted into law. This bill was proposed in response to increases in property tax values which in some areas rose over 229% in less than three years, thereby pricing some people out of homes they owned for years. The job of the Cook County Board of Review is to ensure that the property taxes assessed are fair and just. Each year the Board reviews thousands of property tax appeals put forth by citizens of Cook County, many of which result in the adjustment/reduction of property taxes which were unfairly assessed. Today in the Atrium after each service, the Cook County Board of Review will be taking property tax appeals. I invite you to visit the Cook County Board of Review in the Atrium and file your appeals. If you are unable to visit the table today, you may contact the Board of Review at 312-603-5540 or on the web at http://www.cookcountyboardofreview.com/#. Please keep in mind that deadlines for most of Cook County Appeals are on March 30, 2006.
ACTION ITEMS: 1. DO NOT SHOP AT WAL-MART OR SAM'S CLUB 2. Visit the Cook County Board of Review in the Atrium after service. Thoughts for this week: “What affects one of us directly, affects all of us indirectly.” ~~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

STEWARDSHIP
STEWARDSHIP THE STRANGE RULES OF GIVING
There is something truly strange about giving. Whatever we give really comes back to us, often four-fold. Give love and it comes back to you. Give friendship and your list of friends grows ever longer. Give service and, the first thing you know, someone wants to acknowledge your service publicly. Give money to worthy causes, especially God’s church, and the blessings come flooding over us. George Burba once wrote: “There is something about giving that blesses us. Those who give most, have most left. Give and – somewhere, from out of the clouds, or from the sacred depths of human hearts – a melody divine will reach your ears, and gladden all your days upon the earth.” Norman Vincent Peale used to say that he would be very hesitant to stop giving generously. He said that he had received so much satisfaction from giving that he would not want the joy he had reaped to come to an end. “Give,” we are told, “and it will be given to you...” Strange, but true, very true.

LENTEN MEDITATION
Lenten Meditation #4

GLIMPSES OF RESURRECTION “Becoming Whole”
Nowhere in Jesus’ ministry is the possibility of resurrection illustrated more vividly than in the story of a wild man who was living in a graveyard near the Sea of Galilee. (Mark 5:1-20) The story portrays in stark terms the resurrection of a person, who had not been physically dead but psychologically dead, unable to participate in any civilized living. He is described as being so possessed by a legion of demons that he went around naked, unable to be restrained and ranting at anyone who came near. After Jesus healed him, the man was calm and in his right mind. Let’s move the story to surroundings more typical of the place where people find themselves today. Retain the imagery; retain the sense of power that Jesus has in healing, but move out of the physical graveyard into some of the dead and troubled places, where contemporary demons hold people captive, away from creative and satisfying living. Resurrection can be found here, too. Amidst the multitude of demands in a world riddled with false values and competing ideologies, a person of faith can easily be driven to distraction. How can people, who see life as God’s gift to us, cope with those who are out to attain only wealth and power, regardless of the cost to their own integrity? How difficult it is to be kind and understanding, when competition reigns supreme in our society and economy! How can we be whole people and resist the brokenness that surrounds us? We need Jesus. We cannot do it alone. Christ’s Spirit can help us to see the demons for what they are. With the vision of Jesus Christ before us, we can rise above the frantic “rat-race” and begin a journey into wholeness. We can find resurrection.

Words cannot express my gratitude for allowing me to celebrate my 80th Birthday at my home church. Truly, there's no place like home! Thank you to each member who supported me by attending the celebration, as well those who chose to be a financial blessing to me. Thank you to each usher who graciously greeted my guests and who willingly extended their hours of service on my behalf. Thank you to the Media Ministry for being there and making sure the sound was perfect and the taping of the service was in effect. A special “Thank You” to Ron Anderson and the Women's Chorus for representing Trinity's Music Ministry in their usual spectacular manner. Thank you to Rev. Jacobs for being with me and offering words of encouragement. The celebration was a beautiful affair. I am yet rejoicing. Thanks a million to you all. I ask that you would keep me in your prayers as I continue recuperating.

My love to you all,

Delois Barrett Campbell
