UNISON SCRIPTURE
7:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 6:00 p.m.

PSALM 23 (KJV)
1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

VERSE II Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest, Sun, moon and stars in their courses above, Join with all nature in manifold witness, To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love. (Repeat Chorus) VERSE III Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide; Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, Blessings all mine with ten thousand beside! (Repeat Chorus) -----------------------------------11:00 a.m. THE LORD IS BLESSING ME CHORUS The Lord is blessing me right now, o right now. I said the Lord is blessing me right now, o right now. He woke me up this morning and started me on my way. The Lord is blessing me right now, o right now. VERSE He woke me up this morning I was clothed in my right mind, he didn’t let me sleep too late. He woke me, woke me, woke me

HYMN OF PRAISE
7:30 a.m. GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS VERSE I Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father, There is no shadow of turning with Thee; Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not, As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be. CHORUS Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed Thy hand hath provided, Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!

SCHIZOPHRENIA
Schizophrenia is a serious brain disorder. About 1.1 percent (2.2 million) Americans have this brain illness. It is a disease that makes it difficult for a person to tell the difference between real and unreal experiences, to think logically or to have normal emotional responses and behave normally in social situations. Schizophrenia is not a split personality. It is not caused by bad upbringing, personal weakness or laziness. Some symptoms of schizophrenia include: • False beliefs or thoughts with no basis in reality • Hearing, seeing or feeling things that are not there • Hearing voices that comment on ones behavior or give commands to act out Schizophrenia improves with treatment. For more information, contact the Alliance for the Mentally Ill, NAMI of Greater Chicago, 312563-0445.

We NEED You!
Your pastor, your church and the entire Media Department of Trinity United Church of Christ need you to spread the word! For well over ten years, Trinity provided the Chicagoland viewing audience with one full hour of power. For well over ten years, members of this church, friends of Trinity and many, many others were blessed to get the genius of Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. We were blessed and provided ministry to be a blessing to several thousands in the Chicagoland viewing area. We thank God for all who watched us and worshiped with us during that period of time. As we all know, however, “to everything there is a time and a season.” The season has changed. We were blessed to have faithful viewers during the WJYS season. As faithful as our viewers were, however, their viewing did not generate any revenue. Your church spent well over two million dollars airing that prime time Monday night worship service. Within those ten years, two million dollar expense, we did not generate one-tenth of the expense in revenue. Our viewers failed to plant a seed in this ministry. They failed to purchase the sermons or support the ministry of the church financially. Life was made very easy for the viewers, as they taped the services and

sermons, week in and week out. Because we are blessed to have Dr. Wright as our pastor, and so many others across the globe long to be blessed by the messages God gives him, we remained prayerful for ten years. Our prayer was for God to lead us to minister, at least nationally, in God’s own time. As the ministry of Dr. Wright grew, preaching and lecturing 40+ weeks out of each year in all areas of the world, more people outside of these walls called Trinity United Church of Christ constantly prayed and asked why they could not get Dr. Wright on any of their religious broadcast programming. Several others began working on securing Pastor Wright and Trinity on national programming. Because God is faithful, Trinity is now able to share the liberation theology preached through the man of God, Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., with the nation! What a blessing this national ministry has already been to the church, within one month! Monetary gifts, tape series orders, book sales, Trumpet Newsmagazines, etc., come in daily! We receive more calls now for orders on any given Sunday or Tuesday morning than we would receive within an entire month while we were broadcasting on WJYS. To God be the glory! We are encouraging our faithful

viewers who would plan their Monday evenings around the ministry of Trinity United Church of Christ to subscribe to the tape ministry. We have had monthly tape subscribers (many living out of the country) for the past 15 years. Understanding change is never easy. We ask you to please help us make this transitional season of change a much easier one. Support the ministry of media and help us reach the masses. Please continue to pray for us, as we strive to do the Will of God and share the Man of God with the world, and not simply confine him to this small Chicagoland viewing area. God bless you!

THE UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST AT ITS BEST!
Our denomination gets so much "bad press" because of the "hot button" ticket items and the single-issue Christians who have lost sight of the message of Jesus. What follows is a letter from one of my colleagues -- a United Church of Christ minister -- written back in

November of last year, after the second election was stolen in Ohio. Actually it was a speech delivered at Oklahoma University during a Peace Rally. I offer it to you to show you that I am not alone. I am not a "single" voice crying out in the wilderness. There are many Christian ministers in our denomination and other denominations who have seen the "gap" between what God says and what our government is saying. Read and pray! Then act! years, and hold the record for the most number of angry letters to the editor. Tonight, I join ranks of those who are angry, because I have watched as the faith I love has been taken over by fundamentalists who claim to speak for Jesus, but whose actions are anything but Christian. We've heard a lot lately about socalled "moral values" as having swung the election to President Bush. Well, I'm a great believer in moral values, but we need to have a discussion, all over this country, about exactly what constitutes a moral value -- I mean what are we talking about? Because we don't get to make them up as we go along, especially not if we are people of faith. We have an inherited tradition of what is right and wrong, and moral is as moral does. Let me give you just a few of the reasons why I take issue with those in power who claim moral values are on their side: • When you start a war on false pretenses, and then act as if your deceptions are justified because you are doing God's will, and that your critics are either unpatriotic or lacking in faith, there are some of us who have given our lives to teaching and preaching the faith who believe that this is not only not moral, but immoral. • When you live in a country that has established international rules for waging a just

war, build the United Nations on your own soil to enforce them, and then arrogantly break the very rules you set down for the rest of the world, you are doing something immoral. • When you claim that Jesus is the Lord of your life, and yet fail to acknowledge that your policies ignore His essential teaching, or turn them on their head (you know, Sermon on the Mount stuff like that we must never return violence for violence and that those who live by the sword will die by the sword), you are doing something immoral. • When you act as if the lives of Iraqi civilians are not as important as the lives of American soldiers, and refuse to even count them, you are doing something immoral. • When you find a way to avoid combat in Vietnam, and then question the patriotism of someone who volunteered to fight, and came home a hero, you are doing something immoral. • When you ignore the fundamental teachings of the gospel, which says that the way the strong treat the weak is the ultimate ethical test, by giving tax breaks to the wealthiest among us so the strong will get stronger and the weak will get weaker, you are doing something immoral. •When you wink at the torture of prisoners, and deprive so-called "enemy combatants" of the rules of the Geneva Convention, which

your own country helped to establish and insisted that other countries follow, you are doing something immoral. • When you claim that the world can be divided up into the good guys and the evil doers, slice up your own nation into those who are with you, or with the terrorists -- and then launch a war which enriches your own friends and seizes control of the oil to which we are addicted, instead of helping us to kick the habit, you are doing something immoral. • When you fail to veto a single spending bill, but ask us to pay for a war with no exit strategy and no end in sight, creating an enormous deficit that hangs like a great millstone around the necks of our children, you are doing something immoral. • When you cause most of the rest of the world to hate a country that was once the most loved country in the world, and act like it doesn't matter what others think of us, only what God thinks of you, you have done something immoral. • When you use hatred of homosexuals as a wedge issue to turn out record numbers of evangelical voters, and use the Constitution as a tool of discrimination, you are doing something immoral. • When you favor the death penalty, and yet claim to be a follower of Jesus, who said an eye for an eye was the old way, not the way of

the kingdom, you are doing something immoral. • When you dismantle countless environmental laws designed to protect the earth which is God's gift to us all, so that the corporations that bought you and paid for your favors will make higher profits while our children breathe dirty air and live in a toxic world, you have done something immoral. The earth belongs to the Lord, not Halliburton. • When you claim that our God is bigger than their God, and that our killing is righteous, while theirs is evil, we have begun to resemble the enemy we claim to be fighting, and that is immoral. We have met the enemy, and the enemy is us. • When you tell people that you intend to run and govern as a "compassionate conservative," using the word which is the essence of all religious faith - compassion, and then show no compassion for anyone who disagrees with you, and no patience with those who cry to you for help, you are doing something immoral. • When you talk about Jesus constantly, who was a healer of the sick, but do nothing to make sure that anyone who is sick can go to see a doctor, even if she doesn't have a penny in her pocket, you are doing something immoral. • When you put judges on the bench who

are racist, and will set women back a hundred years, and when you surround yourself with preachers who say gays ought to be killed, you are doing something immoral. I'm tired of people thinking that because I'm a Christian, I must be a supporter of President Bush, or that because I favor civil rights and gay rights I must not be a person of faith. I'm tired of people saying that I can't support the troops but oppose the war -- I heard that when I was your age, when the Vietnam war was raging. We knew that that war was wrong, and you know that this war is wrong. The only question is how many people are going to die before these make-believe Christians are removed from power? This country is bankrupt. The war is morally bankrupt. The claim of this administration to be Christian is bankrupt. And the only people who can turn things around are people like you - young people who are just beginning to wake up to what is happening to them. It's your country to take back. It's your faith to take back. It's your future to take back. Don't be afraid to speak out. Don't back down when your friends begin to tell you that the cause is righteous and that the flag should be wrapped around the cross, while the rest of us keep our mouths shut. Real

Christians take chances for peace. So do real Jews, and real Muslims, and real Hindus, and real Buddhists--so do all the faith traditions of the world at their heart believe one thing: life is precious. Every human being is precious. Arrogance is the opposite of faith. Greed is the opposite of charity. And believing that one has never made a mistake is the mark of a deluded man, not a man of faith. And war -- war is the greatest failure of the human race - and thus the greatest failure of faith. There's an old rock and roll song, whose lyrics say it all: “War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing!” And what is the dream of the prophets? That we should study war no more, that we should beat our swords into plowshares and our spears into pruning hooks Who would Jesus bomb, indeed? How many wars does it take to know that too many people have died? What if they gave a war and nobody came? Maybe one day we will find out. ----------------------------------------------of rounds of ammunition - possibly to outlawed right-wing paramilitary groups, authorities said today. The two soldiers were detained during a raid Tuesday in a gated community in Carmen de Apicala, 80 kilometers southwest of the capital and near Colombia's sprawling Tolemaida airbase, where the detained soldiers worked and where many U.S. servicemen are stationed. National police Chief Gen. Jorge Daniel Castro said officers stopped a suspicious man in the area, who offered a bribe to be allowed to go free. Under threat of arrest, the man led the officers to a nearby house where more than 40,000 rounds of ammunition for assault rifles, machine-guns and pistols were found, officials said. Shortly afterward, the two U.S. army soldiers - apparently unaware of the police operation - tried to go to the house. Castro said three Colombians were also involved. "In the course of the investigation, two Americans arrived. They did not give a satisfactory explanation and were put at the disposal of the Prosecutors' Office," Castro said. A security guard at the Paradise complex said the two American soldiers were taken away by police and Colombian soldiers in a convoy of a half dozen vehicles. In Washington, the State Department confirmed the arrest of two of its soldiers in

Colombia. "Two U.S. soldiers were detained by Colombian authorities on the afternoon of May 3," it said. "We are discussing the circumstances of their detention with Colombian authorities, but do not have any additional information to provide at this time." It marks the latest U.S. embarrassment in this South American nation. On March 29, five U.S. soldiers were arrested after 15 kilograms of cocaine was found aboard a U.S. military plane that flew to El Paso, Texas, from the Apiay airbase east of Bogota. In the ammunitions case, a police registry identified the U.S. servicemen only as Allam Tanquary and Jesus Hernandez. It was unclear whether Allam was a misspelling. U.S. authorities did not provide names. The Colombian Attorney General's Office said the arrested American soldiers had been in contact with a former Colombian police sergeant, Will Gabriel Aguilar, who has been linked to paramilitary groups. Aguilar, another retired policeman and two other Colombians were also arrested, the police official said. The cache was composed of more than 40,000 rounds of ammunition sent to Colombia by the United States under its Plan Colombia aid program, aimed at crushing a leftist insurgency and the drug trafficking that fuels it, officials said. The U.S. Embassy declined to comment

on any possible links to paramilitary groups, who are battling leftist rebels in Colombia. Washington has branded the paramilitary umbrella group, the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, as a terrorist organization, along with the two rebel groups. The Attorney General's Office has formally opened an investigation into arms trafficking against those arrested. However, Colombian Attorney General Luis Camilo Osorio said the two Americans will not face Colombian justice because they are protected under a 1974 treaty that gives U.S. servicemen working here diplomatic immunity status. Jairo Clopatofsky, a member of the Colombian Senate's foreign relations committee, said the treaty is allowing U.S. soldiers to commit crimes here with impunity. He is leading a move to amend the pact. "Colombia's hands are tied by this treaty, which prohibits us from bringing any of these U.S. military members to justice," he said. The United States has provided more than $3 billion US in aid under Plan Colombia. Up to 800 U.S. troops are permitted simultaneously in Colombia, according to U.S. law, to train Colombian armed forces and provide logistical support. Up to 600 Americans are also permitted in the country as U.S. government contractors.
