Chorus I am on the battlefield for my Lord I’m on the battlefield for my Lord; And I promised Him that I Would serve Him till I die. I am on the battlefield for my Lord. Verse I I was alone and idle, I was a sinner too, I heard a voice from heaven say there is work to do, I took the Master’s hand, And I joined the Christian band, I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. (Repeat Chorus) Verse II I left my friends and kindred Bound for the Promised Land, The grace of God upon me, The Bible in my hand, In distant lands I trod, crying sinner come to God, I’m on the battlefield for my Lord. (Repeat Chorus) Verse III Now when I met my Savior, I met Him with a smile, He healed my wounded spirit, And owned me as His child, Around the throne of grace, He appoints my soul a place, I’m on the battlefield for my Lord.

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! 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.

7:30 a.m. eXODuS 14:10 – 14 (The Message) 10 As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up and saw them — Egyptians! Coming at them! They were totally afraid. They cried out in terror to God. 11 They told Moses, “Weren’t the cemeteries large enough in Egypt so that you had to take us out here in the wilderness to die? What have you done to us, taking us out of Egypt? 12 Back in Egypt didn’t we tell you this would happen? Didn’t we tell you, ‘Leave us alone here in Egypt — we’re better off as slaves in Egypt than as corpses in the wilderness.’” 13 Moses spoke to the people: “Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and watch God do his work of salvation for you today. Take a good look at the Egyptians today for you’re never going to see them again. 14 God will fight the battle for you. And you? You keep your mouths shut!” 11:00 a.m. eXODuS 15:19 – 21 (The Message) 19 Yes, Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and riders went into the sea and God turned the waters back on them; but the Israelites walked on dry land right through the middle of the sea. 20 Miriam the prophetess, Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine, and all the women followed her with tambourines, dancing. 21 Miriam led them in singing, Sing to God — what a victory! He pitched horse and rider into the sea!

LenTen HOPe PERILS AND PROMISES
“A MISSION OF HOPE” he apostle Paul speaks of three things that abide and last: faith, hope and love. He leaves no doubt that “the greatest of these is love” (I Corinthians 13:13), but we cannot forget the other two. In some ways, they make love possible. It may also be true that love makes faith and hope possible. How do these three relate to each other, and how is our Lenten hope involved? Faith puts us in touch with the spiritual realities that lie behind our existence. These realities, though, cannot be defined in scientific terms, any more than love can fit into a concise definition. Paul tells us that “faith is the substance or reassurance of things hoped for” (Hebrews 11:1). Hope must be grounded in reality, or it is only dreaming. Faith tells us that human hope is grounded in what God intended in our creation. Love is the spirit that flows between God and people and also from one person to another, when we live in God’s ways. Just as a fire exists by burning and a stream exists by flowing, so love exists in God’s acceptance of us, in the human response of thanksgiving and in the caring inter-relatedness of people with one another. Love is both fire and flow, the movement of God’s spirit in our midst. Hope, then, completes the picture. Combining God’s eternal plan with human mutuality, hope is the animating force that makes progress possible. Hope is forward momentum. Hope envisions a good future and makes plans to achieve it. Hope is the season of spring, reaching into every life throughout the year. Grounded in faith, enabled by love, hope builds the new life that God planned for us and that humans seek.

HONORING OUR LIBERATING LEGEND
e gather today, a week after we saluted our Liberating Legend, Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. Men and women from around the world gathered in the church to honor our Senior Pastor. Dr. Wright’s love for God and God’s people has led to a dramatic paradigm shift in theology and ministry. The street and the academy are now in dialogue because of his ministry and commitment to the ideas of holistic liberation. Today, Beloved, we continue to honor our Senior Pastor through an African ritual of honoring our elders. You will notice the pulpit is draped in African cloth, the lecterns, altar and the main pulpit lectern, along with the pastor’s chair. These areas are covered because the words and rituals of the sacred were practiced behind, before and in these physical spaces. During the Pastor’s Word, all of the pulpit chairs will be removed except the center chair. No one, including Pastor Moss, will sit in the pulpit! We honor this space where our Senior Pastor provided ministry, encouragement and prophetic speech to the people of God. Our pastors and deacons will only enter the pulpit to pray, read Scripture, preach or perform the Call to Worship. We honor this sacred space and, for the next three months, this space will be designated “honored ground.” The ministers will wear robes and African attire at least three times a month to show our collective respect for the work of our Senior Pastor. Our deacons will wear their stoles, black suits and African attire to honor the work of our Senior Pastor and keep before us the sacred nature of our work. I ask you to join me as we honor our Senior Pastor, Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A Wright, Jr.

THE CHICAGO AREA UCC IN FAITH-FULL DIALOGUE What Can We Do Together for Health Care Justice?
here are many of us in United Church of Christ churches in the Chicago area who have expertise around health and health care. We are physicians, patients, families of patients, leaders in public health, nurses, social activists, dieticians, physical therapists, health care administrators, professors of health, health policy advocates, chaplains, and so much more. When it comes to actually having an impact on the full spectrum of issues in health care justice, we have incredible resources among us! Recognizing the power of this amazing gift of resources, the Church-In-Society Committee of the Chicago Metropolitan Association is hosting an opportunity for faith-full dialogue, relationship building, and planning for action. Together we will reflect on questions such as: • What could happen if we gathered as people of faith to get to know each other and share from our faith, experience and knowledge? • What do we, as UCC people, bring to these issues that is unique and that adds something critical to the movement? • What role can we play together in impacting health and health care in our communities and nation? Saturday, May 10, 2008 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon Pilgrim Congregational UCC 460 Lake St., Oak Park, IL To RSVP and for more information, call 847-384-3744 or email Denise.dowling@advocatehealth.com.

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE

s we make our travels in life, there is one thing that makes us stand out as Christians, and that is the unconscious ability to give of ourselves as living stewards. Do you know how long you have been a steward of your resources? It should come as no surprise that we have all been stewards since we were born! One area that you must first understand is that everyone is a steward. Some of us have been better stewards than others. Where do you fall? Do you think of others before yourself? When you receive a pay raise, do you immediately think of how your family will increase its charitable contribution, or do you decide on which fashion trend you will purchase to stay “in style?” Decisions like this can be difficult, but if our conviction to give is greater than our concern over what others may think of us, then we will truly be at peace as a steward.

n February 24, 2008, as a congregation and community, we signed letters addressed to Cook County Commissioner President Todd Stroger and the entire Board of Commissioners, requesting that they vote “no” to further cut services that were already at crisis levels. Further, the letter asked the comissioners to establish an independent governance body to oversee the Cook County Bureau of Health Services. I am happy to report that our advocacy efforts have made a difference. On Friday, February 29, the Cook County Board of Commissioners passed an ordinance which averts further cuts in the Cook County Health Care System, maintains essential services within the system, and takes appropriate first steps to reforming the system. A 1% tax increase in Cook County is directly linked to an ordinance establishing independent governance to oversee the Bureau of Health Services. This independent Board, entitled the Cook County Bureau of Health Directors, will be comprised of individuals from 14 organizations inclusive of the following: the Civic Federation of Chicago, the Civic Committee of the Commercial Club of Chicago, the Chicago Urban League, the Healthcare Financial Management Association, the Suburban Primary Health Care Council, the Illinois Public Health Association, the Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council, the Health and Medicine Policy Research Group,

the Chicago Department of Public Health, the Cook County Physicians Association, the Chicago Federation of Labor, the Chicago Medical Society, and the Association of Community Safety Net Hospitals, and the Midwest Latino Health Research Center. This Nominating Committee will put forth 20 names to President Stroger, of which he shall select nine to comprise the Interim Board of Directors (IBOD). This governance structure will be set in place for three years. While we applaud the implementation of an independent governance structure as a decent start, we recognize it only as a start because community groups are left out of the mix with regard to decisions that affect our communities. This is the next level of advocacy that we must put forth. ACTIOn ITeMS 1. Boycott Wal-Mart & Sam’s Club THOuGHT FOR THIS Week: “What affects one of us directly, affects all of us indirectly.” — Rev.
