thank you, pastor Wright

W
e mark this day as a special moment in history. Preacher, scholar, pastor, teacher, father,
husband, mentor, friend, sage, servant and son will stand before the people of Trinity
one final time as Senior Pastor. For thirty-six years, Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. has stood
behind this sacred desk proclaiming a “full gospel,” a gospel full of hope, healing, faith and liberating
love.
While other ministers and ministries have allowed the winds of the current culture and market to
reshape the gospel into formulaic catch phrases and false hopes of financial success, Dr. Wright, you
have etched out a unique homiletic of recovery and redemption. It was Howard Thurman, mentor
of Dr. King and Rev. Albert Cleage, who stated, “Our encounter with God is not about head or
heart, but about bringing the head and heart together before the Divine.” Pastor Wright, you have
demonstrated this principal by integrating all of your gifts into your ministry.
On behalf of Trinity United Church of Christ, we thank you for allowing God to pour God’s
anointing and power into your life. Thank you for being so generous to your spiritual family and
letting the overflow spill into our lives. We thank you for your prophetic preaching in an age of
preaching for profit. Thank you for loving Trinity, loving your family, but most of all loving God.
May the road rise to meet you, my friend. May the wind be at your back as you step into new
territory. May the sunlight of Christ always grace your cheek, and may God’s rain always fall gently
upon your field. May God keep you, Pastor Wright, in the palm of God’s Hand.

With love,

Rev. Otis Moss III and the entire Trinity Family

STEWARDSHIP
the results of a Redeemed LifE
“Wouldn’t Be” Millionaire

Eleanor Boyer was a retired buyer of chemicals and office supplies when she won
a lump sum of $11.8 million in the New Jersey lottery. She never had a moment’s
doubt about what to do with the money.

She gave it away; about half of it to the parish she worshiped in all her life, and the
rest to the town rescue squad (erasing its deficit), the volunteer fire department and
some of the other groups that serve the town where she grew up.

“No new car, no vacation,” she said. “My life is no different. I’ve given it up to
God. I live in God’s presence and do God’s Will, and I did that from the start.” “In
an age when people are so driven by material forces,” said the vice president of the
New Jersey Hospital Association, “the idea of somebody turning over all that sum of
money to the community and to the church is inspiring. It kind of makes you step
back and think what your priorities are.”

Rev. J. Kennedy, pastor of Ms. Boyer’s church, said the church had invested some of
her gift as an endowment and was buying a new pipe organ. “I suggested to Eleanor
that the organ could be from her, in memory of her parents, and she went along with
that,” he said. He said he did not know if she had purchased another car to replace
the 1968 Chevrolet Malibu when she hit the jackpot. But if she did, he said, she
probably bought a used one.

Ms. Boyer, who was never married and whose closest living relatives are three
nephews, said the church is her true home. She taught classes there, worked at the
church office for ten years, and helped count the collection money.
