UNISON SCRIPTURE
7:30 a.m.

I SAMUEL 23:14-21 (NRSV)
14 David remained in the strongholds in the wilderness, in the hill country of the Wilderness of Ziph. Saul sought him every day, but the LORD did not give him into his hand. 15 David was in the Wilderness of Ziph at Horesh when he learned that Saul had come out to seek his life. 16 Saul's son Jonathan set out and came to David at Horesh; there he strengthened his hand through the LORD. 17 He said to him, "Do not be afraid; for the hand of my father Saul shall not find you; you shall be king over Israel, and I shall be second to you; my father Saul also knows that this is so." 18 Then the two of them made a covenant before the LORD; David remained at Horesh, and Jonathan went home. 19 Then some Ziphites went up to Saul at Gibeah and said, "David is hiding among us in the strongholds of Horesh, on the hill of Hachilah, which is south of Jeshimon. 20 Now, O king, whenever you wish to come down, do so; and our part will be to surrender him into the king's hand." 21 Saul said, "May you be blessed by the LORD for showing me compassion! 11:00 a.m.

the promise of the Father. "This," he said, "is what you have heard from me; 5 for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." 6 So when they had come together, they asked him, "Lord, is this the time when you will restore the kingdom to Israel?" 7 He replied, "It is not for you to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." ----------------------------------------

ACTS 3:1-8 (NRSV)
1 One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, at three o'clock in the afternoon. 2 And a man lame from birth was being carried in. People would lay him daily at the gate of the temple called the Beautiful Gate so that he could ask for alms from those entering the temple. 3 When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked them for alms. 4 Peter looked intently at him, as did John, and said, "Look at us." 5 And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. 6 But Peter said, "I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, stand up and walk." 7 And he took him by the right hand and raised him up; and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. 8 Jumping up, he stood and began to walk, and he entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God.

----------------------------------------

ACTS 1:1-8 (NRSV)

1 In the first book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus did and taught from the beginning 2 until the day when he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen. 3 After his suffering he presented himself alive to them by many convincing proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God. 4 While staying with them, he ordered them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait there for

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. 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9

TO ALL OUR VISITORS ... To all who mourn and need comforting ... To all who are friendless and want friendship ... To all who are oppressed and need liberation; and to whosoever will come, Trinity opens its doors. Thank you for coming and may God bless you.

GRADUATE RECOGNITION SUNDAY!
Most of our new members do not know that we honor, recognize and give “shout-outs” to all of our graduates on the second Sunday in June. Because so many members don’t know that, they have not yet sent in their names and the schools from which they are graduating so that they can be recognized on graduate Sunday. I am urging you today to please submit either your name or the names of persons in your family who have finished elementary school, middle school, high school, college, or graduate school. Submit their names to the church office to the attention of the “Graduate Recognition Sunday Committee.” We don’t want any member’s name left off of the program and we don’t want any “surprises” on the day of the program! All of our graduates are asked to be here in the Sanctuary on Sunday, June 12th in order that we might honor you and say to God that we thank God for God’s gifts given to you as you complete this “milestone” in your educational journey. has prohibited the presence of all armed groups - were tortured and killed. Many firsthand accounts indicate that the Colombian Army was involved. U.S. law requires two annual State Department certifications of Colombian human rights. Each of these two certifications frees up 12.5 percent of military aid destined for Colombia. Though it is possible that Colombia's military was not involved in the February 21-22 massacre, until a thorough investigation is performed, the State Department should not release more aid to the Colombian military. The massacre has generated outrage and crucial momentum on Colombia policy, including a strong letter from 32 members of Congress to President Uribe, and another letter from 28 national non-governmental organizations (NGO's) to U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. To send a fax to U.S. Acting Assistant Secretary of State Michael Kozak urging the Department of State to withhold certification of assistance to the Colombian military until there is a transparent, impartial investigation go to: http://www.ucctakeaction.org/ctt.asp?u=21491 92&l=90018 Thank you for being concerned enough to act this week.

MAY IS MENTAL HEALTH MONTH!
Our denomination, the United Church of Christ, has a Health and Wellness Newsletter entitled “The Healthy Voice.” In honor of Mental Health Month, I am sharing with you three very important items from this month’s newsletter. I. Push for Passage of “Keeping Families Together Act” Mental health advocates are pushing for passage of this critical legislation to improve access to children’s mental health services. Children with mental health needs are ending up in state child welfare and juvenile systems! Send an email to your United States Representatives and Senators this week urging them to sign on as original co-sponsors of the “Keeping Families Together Act.” http://www.nmha.org II. The Fight To Preserve Medicaid Back in March, I asked the members of our church to contact their senators because of the threat concerning the destruction of Medicaid. Millions of people of faith were outraged by the proposed cuts in President Bush’s budget. The cuts to Medicaid affect mentally-challenged citizens whose only hope for a life of normalcy is through Medicaid. One of the witnesses to this truth is a young man named Jeff who is legally blind and mentally-challenged. He is only able to live independently thanks to Medicaid. The President’s budget intended to cut $15 billion
Sunday, May 1, 2005

dollars in the Medicaid program over five years! Because you joined in with the other millions of people of faith who were outraged at these cuts, on March 17, 2005, the SmithBingaman Bi-partisan Amendment to the Senate Budget Resolution to strike all Medicaid cuts passed by a vote of 52-48. All of the Democratic Senators voted for the amendment. Republican Senators, Smith, Chafee, Coleman, Collins, DeWine, Snowe and Specter also voted for the passage of the Smith-Bingaman Bipartisan Amendment. That amendment eliminated the requirement to cut $15 billion dollars of the Medicaid program. That amendment protected the 53 million American citizens who rely on Medicaid - citizens like Jeff. The fight to protect Medicaid is far from overcome, however. The House of Representatives has now passed a bill, which includes $15 to 20 billion dollar cuts to Medicaid! In order to preserve the SmithBingaman victory, call the following senators this week and ask them to “Stick to the Senate bill that has no cuts to Medicaid!” Key senators to call are Senator DeWine (OH), Collins (ME), Coleman (MN), Smith (OR) and Specter (PA). Any cuts to the Medicaid program will hurt the elderly, children, veterans and other vulnerable citizens like those who are mentally challenged. These cuts will not only take away needed healthcare. They will also cut food and nutrition programs!

III. Sound The Alarm For Healthcare! The Bush Administration has pushed Social Security reform to the top ten lists of priorities for this 109th Congress that is now in session. The proposed push to dismantle Social Security has dire implications for the future of healthcare reform! Dismantling Social Security would doom efforts to expand other social programs particularly Medicare and Medicaid! Remember! Medicaid is the lifeline for many persons who are mentally challenged! The proposed push to dismantle Social Security would ultimately stand in the way of affordable healthcare for all citizens in this country! The demand for healthcare reform cannot get lost in the Social Security debate. What you can do to help is this: Send letters to your United States Senators and Representatives expressing your concern about dismantling Social Security. Ask the members of Congress who represent you to go on record opposing proposals to privatize Social Security. Helpful resources for understanding the issue can be found at the following sites: Universal Healthcare Action Network – http://www.uhcan.org Campaign for America’s Future http://www.ourfuture.org Center on Budget and Policy Priorities http://www.cbpp.org Economic Policy Institute http://www.epinet.org

FROM THE DARKNESS TO THE LIGHT THIRD ANNUAL CANDLELIGHT WALK TO SPOTLIGHT MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS
Each week in the month of May, Immabasi Health and Wellness Ministry will give an overview in the bulletin of the illnesses that plague our community. The stigma surrounding mental health in our community often causes lack of services and budget cuts. Please come out and support our Candlelight Walk on May 13th, at 6:00 p.m., starting at Trinity (Atrium) and ending at 95th and Vincennes, Oakdale Convenant Church. For more information, contact Denise White, 773-978-0725.

STEWARDSHIP
What You Don ’t See Is What You Get
Pretend that you want to raise carrots, but have never seen them grow before. You just know what they look like in the supermarket after planting the seeds. You water, weed and watch over your garden to keep the rabbits away. But weeks go by and you don’t see carrots! You’d probably want to give up. One day, a friend offers to help harvest your carrot crop. “Sorry,” you say glumly. “There’s nothing but some green leaves.” With one tug, out pops a large carrot! All your work had produced something, you just didn’t know it. Stewardship can be like that. The Easter play you spent many hours rehearsing may inspire someone to rededicate himself to Christ, but he may not say so. The student who recieves your donation of school supplies will never tell you how her grades improved. Even the shut-in you went to see might not let you know how much your visit meant. Feeling unappreciated can be discouraging. But God knows what you’re doing. And that means something very important to Him. Remember that “The Lord loves a cheerful giver!” He can turn your efforts into tremendous returns even if you don’t see them at all. The Stewardship Ministry Constance A. King, Editor Stacey Moore, Chairperson
