JUST A LITTLE TALK WITH JESUS
Verse I I once was lost in sin but Jesus took me in, And then a little light from heaven filled my soul; It bathed my heart in love and wrote my name above, And just a little talk with Jesus made me whole. Chorus Have a little talk with Jesus, Tell Him all about our troubles, Hear our faintest cry, answer by and by; Feel a little prayer wheel turning, Know a little fire is burning, Find a little talk with Jesus makes it right, Makes it right. Verse II Sometimes my path seems drear, without a ray of cheer, And then a cloud of doubt may hide the light of day; The mists of sin may rise and hide the starry skies, But just a little talk with Jesus clears the way. (Repeat Chorus) Verse III I may have doubts and fears, My eyes be filled with tears, But Jesus is a friend who watches day and night; I go to Him in prayer, He knows my ev’ry care, And just a little talk with Jesus makes it right. (Repeat Chorus)

PASS ME NOT, O GENTLE SAVIOR
Verse I Pass me not, O gentle Savior, Hear my humble cry, While on others Thou art calling, Do not pass me by. Chorus Savior, Savior, hear my humble cry; While on others Thou art calling, Do not pass me by. Verse II Let me at a throne of mercy Find a sweet relief; Kneeling there in deep contrition, Help my unbelief. (Repeat Chorus) Verse III Trusting only in Thy merit, Would I seek Thy face; Heal my wounded broken spirit, Save me by Thy grace. (Repeat Chorus) Verse IV Thou the Spring of all my comfort, More than life to me, Whom have I on earth beside Thee? Whom in heav’n but Thee? (Repeat Chorus)

7:30 a.m. MATTHEW 6:9 –13 (NRSV) 9 ‘Pray then in this way: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. 10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one. 11:00 a.m. LUKE 19:28 – 40 (NRSV) 28 After he had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 When he had come near Bethphage and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, ‘Go into the village ahead of you, and as you enter it you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, “‘Why are you untying it?” just say this, ‘The Lord needs it.’” 32 So those who were sent departed and found it as he had told them. 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 They said, “The Lord needs it.” 35 Then they brought it to Jesus; and after throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 As he rode along, people kept spreading their cloaks on the road. 37 As he was now approaching the path down from the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen, 38 saying, ‘Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!

Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!’ 39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, ‘Teacher, order your disciples to stop.’ 40 He answered, ‘I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.’ 6:00 p.m. MARK 11:1 – 10 (NRSV) 1 When they were approaching Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples 2 and said to them, ‘Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden; untie it and bring it. 3 If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this? Just say this, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here immediately.”’ 4 They went away and found a colt tied near a door, outside in the street. As they were untying it, 5 some of the bystanders said to them, ‘What are you doing, untying the colt?’ 6 They told them what Jesus had said; and they allowed them to take it. 7 Then they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it; and he sat on it. 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut in the fields. 9 Then those who went ahead and those who followed were shouting, ‘Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! 10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our ancestor David! Hosanna in the highest heaven!’

LENTEN HOPE PERILS AND PROMISES
“A GLIMPSE OF FULFILLMENT” alm Sunday brought a feeling of hope fulfilled. As people in Jerusalem spread coats and leafy branches on Jesus’ path and shouted “Hosanna,” they saw His arrival as evidence of Jesus’ coming reign. Yet, history tells us hardship still lay ahead, and Christ’s kingship was to be different than they expected. What do we do when, at last, we see signs that our own hope will indeed be fulfilled? The first thing is to enjoy it. Jesus knew that He would not become the earthly ruler of Israel. Yet, He took part in the drama, because it symbolized the importance of His mission. The second thing to do is to interpret the signs correctly. If we are ill and a test reveals signs of healing, it does not mean that we are instantly whole and fully well again. However, the news is significant and reassuring. The actions of the Palm Sunday crowd were evidence that people were hearing Jesus’ message. The glimpsed fulfillment of our hopes today should be reassuring and an indication that things will be better. If we have taken time during Lent to look at our lives and redirect them into a more productive course, a fresh feeling of peace and accomplishment may help us feel that it has all been worthwhile. However, it is perilous to stop short. While the old saying is true that “Well begun is half done,” we still have to do the other half. Palm Sunday should lift our spirits and let us know that the path of faith is a rewarding one. But we need more than a glimpse of fulfillment. Walking with Jesus at our side, we need to work at the ongoing task of building a new life.

THANK YOU!
Dear Trinity United Church of Christ Friends,

O

ne of the greatest blessings of my call to the Conference was the privilege and joy of being introduced to Trinity and then becoming part of the Trinity family. Your witness for Christ has profoundly shaped my own journey of discipleship, and I give heartfelt thanks to God and for your gifts to my life and ministry. So it was an astonishment when I also received your gift of farewell to me as Conference Minister. Thank you so very much for that expression of love and support. Though I will no longer be your Conference Minister, Matt and I continue to be proud, committed and joyful members of the Trinity UCC church family. We hold you in our hearts and prayers and will continue to stay connected through the Spirit (and Internet!). Thanks be to God for all of you, for Pastor Wright and for Pastor Moss. May God continue to multiply your gifts for the good of Christ’s mission. With Love and Blessings, Jane Fisler Hoffman Interim Conference Minister S. California/Nevada Conference

FASTING FOR SPIRITUAL POWER
We are calling for a period of prayer and fasting for the entire church from now until May 31, 2008.
“Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil and, after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” —Matthew 4:1– 3 Fasting has been used throughout the ages to prepare the people of God for the great things God has in store for them. As we pray through this season of transition and Divine imagination, I am calling, I am asking, I am requesting the entire church to become involved in some form of prayer and fasting. With all of the attacks upon our church and upon our Senior Pastor, it is crucial we, as a church, renew ourselves through prayer and through fasting. The following are several types of fasts that can be used to develop spiritual power and clarity. FAST #1 - FASTING TO cONFRONT DESTRUcTIVE FORcES Week 1: Eat all your meals before 6:00 p.m. Week 6: Eat only 1 meal a day. Week 2: Eat all your meals before 6:00 p.m. Week 7: Drink only juices, water and/or tea Week 3: Eat only 2 meals a day Week 8: Eat only fruits and vegetables before 6:00 p.m. Week 4: Eat only 2 meals before 6:00 p.m. Week 9: Eat only fruits and vegetables before 6:00 p.m. Week 5: Eat only 1 meal a day Week 10: Slowly begin to add meat to your diet. FAST #2 – THE DANIEL FAST. Taken from the Book of Daniel. When Daniel was captured by the Babylonians, he asked the Babylonians if he along with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, could fast, eating only fruits and vegetables so they would be prepared to confront the Babylonian king. Weeks 1 and 2: All meals before 6:00 p.m. Weeks 3 and 4: Eat only 2 meals a day before 6:00 p.m. Weeks 5 and 6: Eat only fruits and vegetables before 6:00 p.m. Week 7: Eat 1 meal a day before 6:00 p.m. Meat may be added. Week 8: Eat 2 meals a day before 6:00 p.m. Meat may be added. Week 9: Eat 3 meals a day before 6:00 p.m. Week 10: Set aside 1 day during the week to eat only fruits and vegetables. FAST #3 - REMOVING cERTAIN FOODS OR ITEMS FROM YOUR DIET OR LIFE One type of fasting is to remove certain foods from your diet such as fried foods, sweets, sodas or refined sugar and/or flour. Please consult your doctor before proceeding with fasting. If you take medication or have any particular ailment, it is important to first communicate with your physician.

Prayer for the people of God during Holy Week and this period of transition, this period of challenge and this period of God blessing God’s people. — Prayer taken from Howard Thurman There is peace that comes when the lowering clouds burst and the whole landscape is drenched in rain, refreshing and cool. O God, we come to you. There is peace that comes when gnawing hunger finds intimate fulfillment in food, nourishing and life-giving. O God, we come to You. There is peace that comes when hours of sleeplessness are swallowed up in sleep. We are calm and we are relaxed. O God, we come to you. We come to you, praying for our church, a church of love and of power and of transformation. A church under attack! We come to You, knowing we clearly understand the walk Jesus took up the hill of Golgotha to be crucified, lynched and executed for the great work He had done during His ministry. O God, we come to You. You are a God of Power. You are a God of strength; but most importantly, You are a God of love. We are a people created in love, and we will live our lives in love. We will present love to those who claim to be our enemies but are still children of the most-high God. We will reach within to our internal resources that You have placed in our minds and in our spirits to create the kind of responses and ministries that will bless those in our community and in the wider world. We thank You for the pressure You put upon us, for it is through pressure that You create diamonds out of coal. We thank You for the pressure, for it is through the pressure You place upon our spirits that cause us to grow as we go through this period of prayer and fasting. Empower us to see Your love, Your spirit, Your message with clarity. Bind every sector of Trinity United Church of Christ together as pastor and people, as children committed to Christ. Bind us together wherever we may come from, whatever our social location. We pray for unity. We pray for strength, but we pray that the love of Jesus Christ will shine through our spirits. Anoint every room in the church that our children will experience the love of God when they come to the nursery, to Children’s Church, to sing, and to be tutored. Anoint every room our seniors will enter into that they will feel loved, empowered and cared for. Most of all, anoint our sanctuary that every person whether they be a member, whether they be someone looking for a story, will be infected and affected by the Spirit of the most-high God that rests in Your house. Empower the leadership that we may lead with the mind of Christ. We thank You in advance for what You are going to do with us through this period of prayer and fasting. We search for our centering moment everyday, every evening, that our minds may be focused upon You. In the mighty name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

THE RESULTS OF A REDEEMED LIFE

he film, “The Matrix,” posed the question, “Which world are you in?” Unless you followed closely, or watched the movie more than once, it was a difficult question to answer. Amphibians live in two worlds at once. Some, like hibernating frogs, can live in one world for an extended time before emerging to the other and then casually slip in and out of each environment when active. The steward’s life is amphibious. You slip in and out of the world of the secular and the spiritual. The worlds are completely different, but you easily cross from one to the other. The balance for the Christian steward is to live totally in the spiritual world while being in the secular world. “Standing around in a garage does not make you a car,” someone once said. The environment in which you find yourself is real, but that environment does not describe you. What a frog is, does not depend on being in or out of water. A frog is a frog, and conducts its life in two environments without changing its nature. As a child of God, your spiritual nature lives itself out in the physical world. God created and preserves the physical world as a place for you to exist. He expects you to manage it. Being part of society and contributing to its betterment are noble goals of Christian service. Every contribution you make within the church or outside the church are witnesses to God’s gifts within you. Your Friends in Service, The Stewardship Ministry Constance A. King, Editor

n this school year, 17 children have gone to school and not returned home. In this school year, 17 children have left their parents, not knowing that they would never return again. This year alone, 17 children have been killed by gun fire. These are 17 people who could have shaped the future of our city, community, nation and world. These are 17 lives senselessly taken. As part of an effort to cease the killing and value the lives of the children, Father Michael Pfleger has instituted two initiatives which prayerfully will slow down access to guns, and force the state legislature to pass common sense gun laws. 1. Within 24 – 72 hours after a child is murdered, a response team will rally from 11:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon at the Thompson State of Illinois Building, demanding that state legislators pass gun legislation. 2. Every time a child is murdered, if there is no known suspect, a $5000 reward will be put up for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the shooter. If you are interested in participating in either of these initiatives, please call the Faith Community of St. Sabina Church at 773-483-4300. ACTION ITEMS 1.
