Dear Friends Handbags and Glad Rags

Copying Denise Knight 12 St Marys Road, Framingham Earl 01508 492924

A few months ago I read an article in the local paper about a handbag that sold for more than £200,000 – and it wasn’t even new. It was made of Himalayan crocodile with gold detailing and lots of diamonds and was officially the most expensive handbag in the world.

Distribution Graham Smith 01508 492096

My friends will tell you that I like ‘nice’ things, and I confess to owning a couple of designer handbags, but £200,000 for a handbag is crazy money.

Moneymaking is worshipped in Britain to a vulgar extent. Success is measured by millionaires, status and worldly possessions. At the same time we are made aware of the million families knocking on the doors of food banks. Even in our community food banks have become a necessity and in All Saints we are helping in a small way to meet this ever increasing need. Meanwhile, every day in our local paper there are reports of people working hard to raise money for good causes – in order to make lives better for others. Sometimes only small amounts are raised, but every little helps to make a real difference for those who need it most. We live in uncertain times, pension pots have been slashed and interest rates are at an all time low. What will our future hold by coming out of the EU?

I am well aware that material possessions do not bring happiness (whatever they cost) and the pleasure of the purchase does not satisfy. As believers, we share in the rich inheritance of God’s heavenly kingdom. No earthly possession can beat this; it is an inheritance that will last for eternity. Sadly, many people doubt the existence of God and believe that man has to run the world as best he can, without expecting any supernatural intervention from God. This conflicts completely with the Biblical view of God. He created deliberately, not by chance. Within His whole creation He has a plan and purpose for all of us. In common with all His beloved children who know Him and love Him, He assures us His purposes are good. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jer. 29:11) As I read newspaper reports of glamour, high fashion and the latest ‘celebrity’ purchase, I turn the page to read about people who matter, people who are making sacrifices for others, people who represent basic decency and real values of life.

God Bless Caroline Milton

Brooke & District Gardening Club

Loddon WEA Autumn Term 2016

After a cold start to the summer, gardens have been blossoming and now that autumn is approaching the cutting back and tidying begins. Ian Bedford is giving a talk on Garden Bugs on 22nd September and on October 27th the Gardening Club is holding the AGM followed by the Autumn Show.

The last series of talks organised by the WEA Loddon branch were on ‘Reasons and Beliefs’ and, in the Spring of this year, ‘Gardens through the Ages’. Passing from ideas about philosophy and religion to a literally down-to-earth subject like gardening provides a good illustration of the range of interests that WEA talks can cover.

The final talk of the year is on Thursday November 24th when Alex Bass, a keen and knowledgeable naturalist and ornithologist, will be talking about The Wildlife Year at Minsmere.

This Autumn, the talks, to be given by Brian Statham, will be about women of influence in the 15th and 16th centuries, including such figures as Elizabeth I, Lucretia Borgia, Diane de Poitiers, and many more.

From now on, a series of talks will consist either of 9 talks of 1½ hours or of 7 talks of 2 hours each. This Autumn, there will be seven 2-hour talks on Mondays in the Jubilee Hall Clubroom, starting at 1.45 and finishing at 3.45. The first talk will be on Monday October 3rd. There will be a half-term break on October 24th and the series will end on November 21st. The fee for the series will be £49 (with fee remissions for those in receipt of certain State benefits), but if you are undecided you may come to the first talk free of charge and pay only if you decide to continue. There is ample free parking at the Jubilee Hall and there is wheelchair access from the playingfield side. Everyone is welcome. No prior knowledge is needed.

Stoptober 2016 Did you know that if you can stop smoking for 28 consecutive days, you are five times more likely to succeed in stopping for good? And that could give you years more of life to enjoy. Along with the health benefits, cutting out smoking will save the average smoker more than £150 a month, or almost £2000 a year.

Public Health England’s campaign ‘Stoptober’ has so far encouraged nearly one million people to make a real attempt to quit, and thousands more are expected to take up the challenge this month. The campaign chunks down the quitting process, and presents it as a more manageable 28-day programme – and offers a lot of support to smokers who want to stop.

Using local mid-week monthly celebration meetings in unusual venues, we find that the local church is strengthened and helped in may ways. The Filling Station is not a new church denomination, rather, a group of Christians who are celebrating their faith in God in an informal and authentic fashion. Please come along to this local meeting, the session starts at 7pm with drinks and cakes, followed by a time of worship, testimonies/talks and prayer for those that want it. The Filling Station evenings will be held every Third Thursday in the month, with the exception of August and December. The Filling Station is not solely for Christians, ALL are Welcomed.

The Way of the Spirit As I write this at the beginning of September we are continuing to enjoy a period of warm and mostly dry weather but the evenings are really starting to draw in. By the time you read this there will only be about 3 weeks before the clocks go back an hour and the shops will be full of Christmas promotions. I challenge you to think about the real meaning of Christmas, the birth of Christ, as you start to think about buying cards, wrapping paper and writing present lists. As you go round the shops look out for things that portray the real message of Christmas and you will realise that it is really hard to find them. If an alien landed on Earth from October onwards they assume that the main reason for Christmas was to celebrate a fat jolly man with a white beard wearing a red suit. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas and much of what goes with it. What I do not like is the commercialism that has, for the most part, taken over. The real meaning, for many people, is completely lost and that is so sad. Jesus was sent by God to give us the greatest gift of all, salvation and everlasting life with him. That is so much better than any gift you can buy in a shop. If you would like to know more about the true meaning of Christmas, why it is so important to us and why it should be important to you, please contact us, the details are at the end of this article. It has been suggested to me that these articles are rather anonymous as no one knows who writes them. I therefore decided that I should tell you a bit about myself and will in future put my name at the end of them. My name is Kirstie, I have been a Christian for about 23 years and a member of Cornerstone church for about 10 years. I have worked fulltime as a civil servant for more years than I wish to admit to and live with my extremely bossy cat Millie.

I first started to study using The Way of the Spirit material more than 15 years ago and have continued to do so ever since. The material is very simple and straightforward to use and can be looked at on your own or in a group. Using it in a group is the best way as you can discuss the topic in more detail and this helps your understanding. DATES FOR YOUR DIARY 2 – 5 November – The Old Testament in Luke and its importance in Prophetic Ministry today – teaching module Residential £165 Non residential £65 Non residential with meals £80 Saturday 3 December – we are holding a Christmas quiz along with a fish and chip supper in the village hall. Tickets will be available from the start of November. For more details contact 01508 495346 info@thewayofthespirit.com www.thewayofthespirit.com Blessings to you all Kirstie

YES, I have NO Religion

Those with No Religion, usually referred to simply as Nones, now outnumber Christians in the UK, according to the latest British Social Attitudes (BSA) survey. That may be true from interviewees for the BSA survey (over 3,300 people, so a substantial number) but the definitions used for both groups need further consideration. When someone says they have No Religion, this is often interpreted as meaning they have no religious belief, or no belief about God or a life force or similar, but this is not correct. Prof Linda Woodhead did a series of surveys in 2013 exploring religious ideas. She found that most Nones are not atheists;

they don’t decisively reject God, but what they DO reject is an identification with “religion” or with a particular religion. One in six, 16%, of them said they believed in God, and a quarter, 23%, say they are influenced by religion. Yet support for the established churches especially is waning, with more older folk dying than new people joining. No Religion therefore has become the new establishment. The author of an article in The Daily Telegraph, Tim Stanley, was asked if, as a consequence, British Christianity was in terminal decline. He argued that it wasn’t, but that it was merely “sleeping”. Christianity was like Tesco, he said, it had to advertise to get sales. “At the centre of the faith is the truth that Jesus died and rose from death. The power of the Good News is so great that it cannot fail to win converts. Time to share it.”

Birth numbers in the UK Since the worldwide financial crisis of 2008, an interesting phenomenon has occurred in several countries – the birth rate has dropped significantly. In the United States, the general fertility rate dropped from 2.1 (replacement level) in 2008 to 1.85. In Australia it dropped from 2.0 to 1.8. In Norway it has gone from 2.0 in 2008 to 1.7. In Britain it has gone from 1.9 to 1.8, but in France it has remained the same at 2.0 and in Germany it has risen from 1.4 to 1.5. The numbers being born in Britain have increased since 2002, even if the fertility rate has fallen. That simply means that fewer women are having babies while more babies are being born – because of the increase in the population largely through immigration.
