UNISON SCRIPTURE
7:30 a.m.

ISAIAH 29:13-14 (NRSV)
13 The Lord said: Because these people draw near with their mouths and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their worship of me is a human commandment learned by rote; 14 so I will again do amazing things with this people, shocking and amazing. The wisdom of their wise shall perish, and the discernment of the discerning shall be hidden.

is you, command me to come to you on the water." 29 He said, "Come." So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!" 31 Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, "You of little faith, why did you doubt?" 32 When they got into the boat, the wind ceased. 33 And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God."

MATTHEW 14:22-33 (NRSV)
14 Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. 23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, 24 but by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them. 25 And early in the morning he came walking toward them on the sea. 26 But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out in fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, "Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid." 28 Peter answered him, "Lord, if it

JOHN 21:15-17 (NRSV)
15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my lambs." 16 A second time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Tend my sheep." 17 He said to him the third time, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, "Do you love me?" And he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep.

MENTAL HEALTH MONTH IMMABASI HEALTH AND WELLNESS MINISTRY BIPOLAR DISORDER
About two percent (three million) of the American population suffer from bipolar disorder, which was previously known as manic depressive illness. The illness is a result of a change in the chemistry of the brain. The individual experiences severe mood fluctuations characterized by “lows” (depression), alternating with extreme inappropriate “highs” (mania). Symptoms may include: • Talking rapidly • Distractibility and/or irritability • Inflated self-esteem or grandiosity • Changes in appetite • Feeling sad, worthless, or guilty, without cause • Concentration difficulties Bipolar disorder improves with treatment.

A REAL CRISIS ABANDONING OUR CHILDREN
By Bernice Powell Jackson Last week I wrote about a real crisis the energy crisis - which includes the environmental and the conservation crisis as opposed to the Social Security “crisis” - which has been in the headlines for weeks. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that there are other real crises that our nation is facing which are either going unaddressed altogether or are being handled in troubling ways. Many of them I have written about for a long time, but when they are put together... There is the real crisis, for instance, facing our nation's most vulnerable populationpoor children and children of color. It has been said that one can judge the strength of a nation by how it treats its weakest citizens. Apparently, our political leadership does not see it that way, however. The federal budget resolution just passed by Congress includes major cuts that low income children need to survive and thrive while establishing the size of tax cuts to be passed later this year. For example, the Senate Agriculture Committee must cut $3 billion, much of which will come from food stamps. Or, $24 billion must be removed from the budgets of Head Start, education, housing and nutrition programs for poor pregnant

women and their children. An additional $10 billion must be cut from the Medicaid program which funds health care for the poorest families and the disabled. This is what Pastor Wright has been writing about on the Pastor's Page for three weeks. Have you been reading? Have you acted yet? Then there is the education crisis faced by the nation's poorest children and those of color. While the No Child Left Behind Act of the Bush administration might seem to address their needs, the reality is something quite different. The mechanisms of this law are based on standardized testing (with its wellknown problem of cultural bias) and then on punishment and sanctions of schools in which students do not succeed on tests. The Harvard Civil Rights Project rightly predicts that large urban school districts will eventually be designated as failing since most of their schools will be so named. What then? Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, is so concerned about American high schools, that his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is investing millions of dollars in redesigning them. In a recent speech to U.S. governors, he said, “America's high schools are obsolete. By obsolete, I don't just mean that our high schools are broken, flawed or underfunded - though a case could be made for every one of those points. By obsolete, I mean that our high schools, even when they're
Sunday, May 22, 2005

working exactly as designed, cannot teach our kids what they need to know today.” Gates went on to say that our high schools were designed, for the world of 50 years ago (some of us might say 100 years ago) where only one-third of graduates needed to be ready for college and work. He added, “The other twothirds, most of them low-income and minority students, are tracked into courses that won't ever get them ready for college or prepare them for a family-wage job, no matter how well the students learn or the teachers teach.” Then he said, “This isn't an accident or a flaw in the system; it is the system.” What now? In addition, when I think of the tough budget cuts now being faced by dozens of school systems across the nation, I know that this is a real crisis. Here in Cleveland, where I live, we cut $100 million from the schools’ budget last year, resulting in 1,000 staff cuts, including many classroom teachers. Now the same system is being forced to cut an additional $36 million only a year later. Nearby Akron is cutting over $50 million this year. Even the more affluent suburban school districts are facing school budget cuts, many for the first time. And this does not even begin to address the inequity of school funding in states like Ohio, which rely upon property taxes for school revenue and where our state legislature has simply ignored

the Ohio State Supreme Court's four rulings that such funding is illegal and inequitable. Our children, especially our poor children, our urban and rural children and our children of color are facing a very real crisis which will impact our nation and threaten our national security in ways yet to be understood. What will it mean for our country in a decade when two thirds of the children attending high school today will be unable to support their families? Should we just build prisons right next to the schools? How will a democracy survive in a country where many of its citizens cannot even read the Constitution ....or a ballot? How do we live with ourselves when Medicaid cuts mean more poor children go without health care? What about the moral values of a nation which chooses to throw away millions of its children so that its wealthiest might receive tax cuts? What is moral about leaving a national debt of half a trillion dollars for our children to pay off? This, I believe, is a very real crisis an economic crisis, an educational crisis - a moral crisis - not for our children, but for us.

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.

PASTOR’S PAGE
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! Deacon Jeri L. Wright, Media Director and the entire Media Department of Trinity United Church of Christ

was inspired by your thoughtfulness, your kindness and your physical presence. It meant the world to me. I don’t want to let this moment go by without saying “Thank you.” May God bless you and keep you. Gratefully yours, end the tradition of checks and balances which preserves minority rights in the Senate. It is anticipated that debate will begin on judicial filibusters and the appellate court nominees Priscilla Owens and Janice Rogers Brown today, Wednesday morning, May 18th. From there, the action will quickly shift to Vice President Cheney who, as President of the Senate, will be asked to rule that only 51 votes are needed for U.S. circuit court of appeals and Supreme Court nominations. This ruling makes it likely that the Senate will confirm these two nominees and sets the stage for an ultra-conservative Supreme Court nominee later this year. Beyond what happens with any individual judicial nominees, what is really at stake in protecting the filibuster is the guarantee that diverse points of view will be heard. Ninety-five percent of President Bush's judicial nominees have been confirmed. Those nominations, which have been held up by the filibuster under Senate rules, have been delayed for good reason. Time is running out.

AN URGENT ACTION ITEM!
Dear Trinity Member: I am writing you on the day the bulletin goes to print and by Sunday, May 22nd, it may be too late, but I am alerting you on the day I found out about this. Urgent action is required by the members who have computers and internet access. Your voice and the voices of your friends and church members are urgently needed this week to prevent several judicial nominees with troubling civil rights records from being hastily seated for life on some of our nation's highest courts. Unless moderate Senators come up with a last minute compromise, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist appears ready to make good on his threat to

ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA SORORITY/ DR. MARY H. WRIGHT
Today, as a culmination of the Women’s Conference, Women’s Week and our celebration of women, the women of Alpha Kappa Alpha are honoring my mother, Dr. Mary H. Wright. The women of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority have gathered today to worship with us at the first service and to pay tribute to one of the greatest women of God it has ever been my pleasure to meet (my Mom! smile). When I invited my mother to come from Philadelphia to Chicago to celebrate with her sorors on this day she said she would try her best, depending on the amount of pain she was in and depending on her ability to travel. Her absence here today lets you know that she was not physically able to make the trip. She called to express her thanksgiving to the women of Alpha Kappa Alpha and to express her sorrow for not being able to be here in person. She asked me to thank her sisters for her. I want to thank the women of Alpha Kappa Alpha for honoring my mother. I want to thank them for honoring me by honoring her and I want to thank them for upholding the high standards of their sorority as they continue to serve God and God’s people. Gratefully yours,

Pastor Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. and Dr. Mary Henderson Wright

TO DO

JUSTICE
Micah 6:8

By Rev. Reginald Williams

Misplaced priorities can cause misery. In this country, our priorities are misplaced. This country spends obscene amounts of money to push and propel a war that was declared on deception. This country continues to approve tax breaks and policies which make the rich richer, while the poor continue to languish in poverty. On the other end of the spectrum, this same country refuses to place the same effort and concern on issues affecting persons living with the HIV/AIDS pandemic. This country refuses to place the same effort on issues concerning the healing of diseases, because the treating of disease symptoms keeps the finances flowing into the pockets of the pharmaceutical companies. I tell you, we have misplaced priorities. We would rather build bombs to kill than find cures for diseases in order to heal. Misplaced priorities! Our misplaced priorities also apply in the matter of hunger. In this country alone, there are 36 million people at risk of hunger. This means that 36 million people are either skipping meals or eating
Sunday, May 22, 2005

less in order to try to make ends meet. This number includes 13 million children. For years, we as a church, have joined in with Bread For The World, and other organizations urging Congress to end hunger. I urge you to do the same today by signing the letter which will be distributed during service calling on Congress to make hunger a priority.

ACTION ITEMS: 1. BOYCOTT WAL-MART & SAM’S CLUB 2. Subscribe to the TRUMPET Thought for this week: Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

STEWARDSHIP
Ready Or Not Here I Come
Have you ever played hide and seek? Most children have. For me, the most exciting part was when the person who was “it” uncovered his or her eyes and shouted, “Ready or not, here I come!” That’s when the game really begins. The hiding is just like setting up pieces on a chess board. The players would have to be ready at that time for fear of getting found. Many of us postpone donating time, talent and treasure completely, waiting for “just the right time,” which seems to be always moving ahead because we rarely reach it. And many others do try to practice good stewardship, but again, “just don’t think they’re ready” to raise their commitment to their church when asked. But the needs of the church and community will not wait. They call out, “Ready or not, here we come!” Children need tutoring and supplies now to succeed in school. Shut-ins need visits to relieve their loneliness. The hungry need a food pantry now, and so on. Shouting, “Time out! I’m not ready!” might work in hide and seek, but not in the real world. These needs, and many others, must be met. So as Christians, we have to “get ready, set and go” out to all the world and give. The Stewardship Ministry Constance A. King, Editor Stacey Moore, Chairperson
