From the Vicarage... My fugitive years are all hasting away… words written not far from here, in Olney, by the hymn writer Willam Cowper (“God moves in a mysterious way” was one of his). I suppose this sense of time’s unbending arrow heading relentlessly away may have lain behind my reluctance to celebrate my 50th birthday. Forty means something, I guess; but fifty seems notable only for qualifying one for membership of Saga, an estimable organisation but I’d rather qualify for Club 18-30. Actually, on reflection, I wouldn’t, but Club 35-45 would suit me fine. I suppose I must have been feeling a bit morose about all this when I was asked to divert en route to supper at the Weatherill’s to pick up some keys in church. ‘Seem to be a lot of cars around,’ I remarked to David, ‘yes, he said, there’s a do on at the cricket club’. As indeed there was, I discovered, after walking into a dark church and finding dozens of people I’ve know all my life dressed up in 1980s fancy dress singing Happy Birthday. At first, covered in confusion, I couldn’t think what they were all doing there, and for a moment I felt like one of the apostles on Easter morning suddenly walking into something marvelous they hadn’t prepared for. Of course easier for me than for them to adjust to unexpected circumstances and a fine old time was had by all – thank you so much to everyone who played a part in it. Afterwards I realized I’d relearned an old lesson: not to sadly wave the years goodbye but to welcome and embrace the gifts God still has in store for us – a bit like those apostles again. Your in Christ, Fr Richard. PS At some point in the evening gifts got detached from cards – thank you, if I haven’t thanked you already, for yours.

Rosewood Court On behalf of the residents of Rosewood Court, I want to say what a joy it is to have members of your choir and Father Richard taking our services when planned. The singing is really beautiful and also the message which is brought to us. It means so much to the many here who are now unable to participate in their church services. Thanks also for the Easter Greetings sent to us, which we reciprocate. For Christ is Risen and He lives for evermore. A final thought, please may we request ‘All in the April Evening’ when next you come. Even if April is past, we would still like it. Thank you and every Blessing. With love from us all.

Can you Help? On Saturday May 5th and Sunday May 6th, in two mighty twelve hour sessions, the Buffs are doing a sponsored wheelchair push round the Green to raise money for Ben Talbot, a twelve year old with a serious disability. The idea is to push the equivalent distance from Land's End to John O'Groats, 606 miles as the crow flies, or 2,400 laps of the green. We have 28 wheelchairs but we need people to volunteer to help out with pushing them, as much or as little as you can manage. Please put the word out. 10


In my Day The ramblings of Hubert James

In my day, it was about this time of year that we all got excited about May Day. Now in them days, we didn’t have a Bank Holiday. So bank workers had to go to work along with the rest of us. They were tough times for Bank Managers; most of them lived and worked in wardrobes. Course, we all had a holiday at the end of the month. In my day we all knew what Whitsun was. Still May Day meant fun and frolics on The Green. In particular it meant Morris Dancing. Yes, men with beards bells and hankies, the last word in culture. We loved it. We couldn’t get enough. It was a proper hopping craze with a driving squeeze box beat that we could bounce along to. Each team had a fool who would whip us up into a frenzy. Nowadays who would believe how much enjoyment you could get just by being whacked by an inflated pigs bladder on a stick? The BBC joined the band wagon and gave us Strictly Come Morris Dancing on the wireless, hosted by Johnny Morris and Bruno the Chimp. Johnny did both voices and we had to rely on our imagination to judge the quality of

dance based on the sound of the bells. So when the professional teams went of tour, we all flocked to see them. Young folk would scream and shout as highly paid dancers would prance about, some with swords and some with sticks. We marvelled as they weaved in and out gripping their swords and forming them into a star. Then there was the danger of the stick dances where a misplaced rap on the knuckle could end your career. You don’t need me to tell you that they became household names. First we had the stick dancers; Take That. Then the team that always danced towards the West; One Direction. There was a mixed team, five girls and a lad; Boys One. The sexist mob; No Girls Allowed. But none achieved the fame of a bunch of lads from Birmingham with a popular lead dancer from Aston. The boy who put the back flip into the Morris. They started off as the Jig Lively Stompers but this got shortened to JLS and a legend was born.

The Bishop of Brixworth writes A tale of two (more) cities

This year marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens. My favourite Dickens’ novel is A Tale of Two Cities with its themes of love and redemption amidst evil and terror. His two cities are London and Paris, one a symbol of safety, the other of danger. My two cities are places I visited on pilgrimage to Turkey; the magnificent Imperial capital of Constantinople and the great trading city of Ephesus. The early church flourished in both places but in very different circumstances. Ephesus was a busy trading centre in which Christians were a tiny minority gathering in homes. They were mostly tolerated and sometimes persecuted. Constantinople was re-founded as part of the upheaval that followed the conversion of the Emperor Constantine to Christ in AD330. Then Christianity became the official state religion. The shorthand description of this period in history is “Christendom”. Much of our pattern of church life in England

originates from this time. However, many key thinkers across the churches believe that Christendom’s days are numbered. One Catholic leader has said, “The traces of Constantine’s church would seem to be fading and a new Constantinian turning point confronts us”. One possibility is that in the future the church will rediscover the “Ephesus” model. This might mean smaller, less formal groups growing through networks of relationships. The General Synod report Mission-Shaped Church drew attention to a wide variety of existing “Ephesian” churches which together involve as many members as some dioceses. Another possibility, supported by Archbishop Rowan, is that the future will feature a mixture of both “Constantinople” and “Ephesus” style churches. I believe individual churches can also embrace both callings to mission. I am sure that there is a future for churches with long histories and wonderful buildings also offering new patterns of church life alongside their existing traditional worship. I recently discovered this challenge: “The Church started out as a fellowship of men and women following Jesus Christ. Then it spread to Greece and became a Philosophy. Then it spread to Rome and became an Institution. Then it spread to the whole of Europe and became a Culture. Then it spread to the United States and became an Enterprise. Perhaps it’s time to return to being a fellowship of men and women following Jesus Christ?”

Around the diocese Easter Hope comes to Bishop Stopford School

Making 700 balls of playdough was a challenge for the helpers, but well worth it to see the enthusiasm of pupils and staff at Bishop Stopford School for Easter Hope, the interactive prayer stations in the Hall and Chapel at the end of last term. Each station reflected on different themes in the Easter story such as betrayal, compromise, grief, injustice, new life and hope. They were set up by the Chaplaincy team at the School with much help from parents of pupils past and present. Lee Hodgson-King, from St Giles in Northampton, also helped to devise and set up the stations.

Their reactions were heartfelt. “Easter hope was fantastic,” said one year 7 pupil, “I couldn’t believe it! I felt totally set free!” Each prayer station invited thought and a practical response. At one, viewers looked at themselves in a mirror and were asked to remember that they are made in the image of God and that they are special and important to him. They were given a small heart shaped mirror to take away. As they removed the plastic film on the mirror they were invited to ask God to peel away any misunderstandings they might have that would stop them knowing how loved and loveable they are. Making models out of playdough, listening to music, adding tears to the wall of suffering and planting seeds of hope were amongst the other activities. “The stations helped me get in touch with things in myself that I usually don’t think about,” said one participant. “What a great way to encounter God.” For the Chaplaincy team it was not only these reactions that encouraged them, but also that parents from churches in the diocese were able to help and support the school with this event.

Pupils in years 7 to 9 (ages 11 to 14) all spent an hour at Easter Hope during lesson time, visiting the stations in groups of three. Older pupils were encouraged to call in during their breaks. In all an estimated 700 pupils and staff visited.

Around the diocese Sixty graduate from Mission Shaped Ministry course

Bishop John joined Peter Hancock, Chair of the Methodist District, and Bishop Tim from Leicester Diocese, at a recent celebration for the sixty people who completed the Mission Shaped Ministry course. The 18 month long course was organised as a collaboration between the Northampton Methodist District and Anglican Dioceses of Leicester and Peterborough. It ran over nine Saturdays in Market Harborough. The course is designed for people involved in starting new forms of church (Fresh Expressions). It will run again at the same venue, starting in September 2012. If you’re involved in a café church or messy church, or are thinking of starting one, or would like to learn from new forms of church for your existing worshipping community, this course might be for you. For more information contact Miles Baker on 01604 887043.
