Rt Revd Donald Allister, Bishop of Peterborough, writes Thinking about rich and poor One of the great problems of a recession or a period of national austerity is that the gap between rich and poor grows wider. In a sense this is inevitable: those who depend on support from the state will always suffer most when government spending is reduced. You can't cut hGusing benefit across the bGard if only poorer people receive it. A benefit cap isn't going to affect those who only receive a free television licence or winter fuel allowance. I am not criticising the general policy of redueing government spending. Governments, like the rest of us, should not live beyond their means. Some degree of borrowing for investment, in the same way as families take out a mortgage to buy a house, may well be appropriate. But borrowing to support everyday spending cannot be a good idea. The government should not be spending what it hasn't got, even on good causes. The proliferation of food banks, payday lenders, credit unions, loan sharks, and so on (some of which I see as unfortunately necessary, some as iniquitous - I trust you can work out which is which) demonstrates that poverty and debt are becoming increasing problems in our still~affluent country. Christians and Churches should do all we can to resist those trends. The answer is not simply to give poor people lots of money. Hard work, taking responsibility, and living within a budget are genuine virtues as well as conducive to a healthy society; and we need to tackle poverty of spirit as well, which is seen in rich and poor alike . But demonising the poor, or referring to those who need support as 路scroungers" is not the answer either. There is very real hardship in our society. General Synod's call to churches last year to ensure that people we employ receive at least the Living Wage rather than the derisory Minimum Wage is a good start. All employers, including local councils and others who employ the least skilled people, have a moral duty to pay at a rate which people can actually live on. Christians setting an example, and helping others, in living simpler lifestyles, living within our means, and resisting the blandishments of consumerism, would also be a real help. Churches need to be at the forefront in the fight against greed, and offering real support to the less advantaged to live healthily for less

AN INVITATION TO SHARE IN THE CELEBRATIONS OF CANON MICHAEL'S 50 ANNIVERSARY OF HIS ORDINATION. AT ST. JAMES THE GREATER CHURCH LITTLE DALBY 10.30AM ON THE 29TH• SEPTEMBER THE FEAST OF ST. MICHAEL AND ALL ANGELS. Dear Friends, The date is very appropriate - don't you think? But it would be lovely to welcome you to a Eucharistic celebration of my 50 years in Holy Orders. I was made deacon in 1963, and ordained priest a year later. Served most of my ministry in the Diocese of Peterborough where I was made a non..residentiary Canon of Peterborough in 1986. I was privileged to serve as Incumbent at Longthorpe, Warmington and Oakham, and it would be lovely to welcome any who would like to share the day with me and my family. This service began as a Benefice service for the South West Framland group of parishes, but has now been extended to include the Benefice of South Framland for which I am responsible for the time being and I hope that there may be a few from St Mary's Melton Mowbray where I spent some 2 Yz years. I shall be inviting my family and personal friends of course. So we expect a full church. The Bishop of Leicester will be the preacher, and I shall celebrate the Holy Eucharist according to Common Worship order 1. My vocation came very early probably in my early teens, not surprisingly, I suppose as I was a member of a very good choir at St. Matthew's Northampton from the age of7, in the first choir to Televise in 1947, and a choral scholar. My main influences were my local Parish Priests, and School Chaplain as well as many good and holy lay people who fostered my calling from an early age. After National Service where I providentially met my lovely wife Helen, (known to some as Jill), who has been my rock for 50 years! It was she who chose our house in Little Dalby. So after nearly 40

years in the Diocese of Peterborough, we came to live in the Diocese of Leicester, and I have been pleased to be able to continue to minister at Launde Abbey twice, my local benefice of the Burrough Hill, Melton Mowbray, and now at South Framland. I still recon being a Parish Priest is the best job in the Church. A general practitioner in prayer, leading of worship. teaching young and old, and living a life which tries to set forward the Love of God in everything in which We are involved. You all know I have fallen short at times and for that I crave your pardon, but Helen and I have so many things to be thankful for, friendships shared, and a long ministry dedicated to the greater glory of God. Finally please stay for a Luncheon which is to be a Bring and Share buffet. We will provide the drink, wine, cordials and mineral water, you bring the food please! All cutlery and plates will be provided, and there is to be a marquee and Gazebos, chairs and tables. Car parking will be in the field next to the Church Car Park. There will be plenty of room. For Sat. Nav. users the Church may be found on LE14 2UQ Service will start at lO.30am and last for about 1 hour and a quarter. Good music, singing and fellowship! God Bless, Canon Michael

MomERS' UNION NEWS July meetin& I wrote in the last News that we were in for a treat, and so it proved. Helen Bush's talk on "Six of the Best" was typically original and deeply thought~out ~ mind~stretching in fact - and yet delivered with Helen's customary compassion and humour. How can it be that we could ponder on SO much afterwards, yet chuckling at the same time? Many thanks Helen. Au&ust As I write to meet the early September magazine deadline we look forward to 9th August, Mary Sumner Day, and Pamela Woods' talk at the Friends lunch on our Founder's life and legacy. Then, on 21 st August, after Corporate Communion the Bus Trip and lunch outing, still at this stage something of a Mystery Trip, but still, I'm sure, very much to be enjoyed. September meetin& How fortunate we are - another treat! On Thursday 12th September at 2.15pm in the Church Hall we shall be delighted to welcome Canon Michael Covington who will be speaking to us on Life at Launde. Launde Abbey is of course now the Diocesan Retreat and Conference Centre for our own Diocese of Peterborough as well as that for Leicester Diocese, so do come and find out more about this truly delightful place only a few miles up the road from Oakham. October meeting An early reminder that the October meeting will be the Deanery Quiet Morning hosted this year by Ketton on Wednesday 9th October at 10.00 am. Please note different date, time and venue. A list for anyone wishing to go will be available at the September meeting, but otherwise please telephone Meg (771564) or Pamela (755371).

TI-IANKYOU This is just a small note to say "thank. you" to all who have been concerned and prayed for me in my recent disability. Although severe and prolonged, it is now fading away thanks to all involved with the medics and your good selves. Catriona joins me in these thanks. DougasDrye


Much 2 Cfor The FrirndJi and Mother's Union on June 15 2013 Coach outing,

Clocks (The British Horological Institute), Conservation (The

Workhouse), Coronation (Embroidery Exhibition), Cream tea and Choral Evensong. So where was all this seen? The annual outing of The Mother's Union traditionally linked with The Friends of All Saints' Church includes a church or cathedral was this year to Southwell Minster. (Afraid I can't make that begin with a 'e'I) The journey being relatively short meant that other things of interest could be visited but the timing of the date was crucial. In the village of Upton just outside Southwellls The British Horologicallnstitute (The Clock Museum) which is only open for five days each year, one when the docks are put forward, one when the clocks are put back and three days annually in June. Many on the coach had little Idea of what to expect but all were thoroughly engaged with what they saw. The British Horological Institute was established in 1858 to promote horology and its prime purpose is education. In 1972 BHI moved to Upton Hall and therein are rooms and corridors containing different aspect of telling time, with timepieces made from the 1ih century to the present day; two Post Office speaking docks; turret (church) and industrial electrical horology; personal timekeeping - pocket and wrist watches, all with great diversity . Talks, exhibitions, repair workshops were all there for our interest and very interesting it was tool The hour and a half allowed for viewing could well have been extended. Some people got off the coach on the outskirts of Southwell in order to visit the National Trust's atmospheric Workhouse. It is the most complete workhouse in existence with the unique atmosphere evoked by the audio guides. We were able to discover how society dealt with poverty through the centuries. It was not a situation to be envied but again, all very interesting. A twenty minute walk brought us into Southwell with the Minster's twin towers looming ever closer, past The Bramley Apple Inn reminding us of where the first 'Bramley Seedling' pips were planted by Mary Brailsford as a young girl in her garden nearby. No visitor can fail to be in wonder and awe of the beauty and reverence emanated from the stunning Minster's architecture and Christian ambience.

It was the last day (hence the careful synchronising of dates) of The Labour of Love Embroidery's Tribute exhibition to celebrate 60 years In service since the Coronation in 1953. On display were a variety of colourful and precious embroid@ries Ineluding a dress worn by one of the young girls who carried the Queen's Coronation robe in Westminster Abbey. (Which is later to be shown in the Summer Exhibition at Buckingham Palace.) During the afternoon it was the AGM of the Friends of Southwell Minster. Those present at the AGM had tea in the Cathedral while we went for cream tea in the nearby Trebeck Hall. At 4.30pm all of Southwell and Oakham Friends joined in with others for the Festal Evensong. What a glorious occasion I Rousing hymns, b6ulutiful singing of anthems and responses by the choir, touching prayers and readings and the superb sermon by ihe Very Revd. Charles Taylor, Dean of Peterborough left everyone departing with smiles on their faces and warmth in their hearts. It had only been a month prior that The Dean was with us in Oakham celebrating our 20 year anniversary. Interest and beauty made for a very fulfilling day. Thanks go to Gordon and Pamela Woods for their careful planning. Seryl Kirtland Chair of All Saints' Friends

BROOKENEWS Our patronal festival of St Peter was celebrated at evensong on th Sunday 29 June 2013 when Rev Audrey took the service and Rev Cancm Lee Francis-Deqhani gave the sermon. We were also pleased to welcome a special guest the Rev Dr Dominic Coad who had only been ordained priest at Peterborough Cathedral the previous day. During the well attended service it was commented that this was one of those perfect English summer evenings with the sun shining, the bells ringing and the congregation singing with great joy. A special treasure of Brooke church an ancient and well used prayer book was read from during this service. This leather bound book was presented to Brooke church in 1631 and was most likely printed in the 1620's. Not only does it contain the Book of Common Prayer with psalms but also 'Certain Godly Prayers,' 'The Forme and Manner of the Making and Consecration of Bishops, Priests and Deacons' and also another book of psalms and chants. This perfect English summer evening was rounded off in the garden of Meadowside, the home of Harold and Joan Killingback, where the congregation were served with drinks and strawberries and cream. We were also able to admire the trees recently presented to Harold and Joan. Thanks to all who kindly supplied food and drink.

The recent well attended pee meeting was held on Friday 26 July 2013 at Gill and Terry Greer's home in Brooke. Although Harold Killingback is now retired from this committee he attended the meeting to speak on the results of his in depth research into the Chancel Repair Liability ofBrooke. The committee then spent some time evaluating his findings and thanked Harold for all the hard work and hours he had spent on it. All members had read and enjoyed the latest Quinquennial report and were relieved to find that only a few minor repairs to the church were necessary at this time; stonemasons are due in the middle of August to begin repairs on the chest tombs. The treasurer gave his report including an update on the insurance policy and then various dates for the forthcoming months were organised. The Harvest Festival will be at the later date this year of Sunday 6 th October at 6pm with the usual refreshments for all afterwards. Church Cleaning Day Monday 7th October The Christmas Coffee MorninglBazaar is to be on Thursday 5th December and will return to its usual venue of Rose Cottage, Brooke. The Christmas Carol Service is to be on Sunday 15th December at the later time of 7pm with seasonal nibbles and drinks afterwards. Audrey said that although Brooke had as yet no churchwarden she was pleased to report that all the PCC members were filling the necessary rolls very adequately. After a very late finish Terry and Gill thankfully revived us all with coffee and biscuits.

EGLETON NEWS S1. Edmund'$ will be happy to host a wedding on Saturday, September 28 111: the bride will be Fiona Dale, who takes pride in her long line of family associations with Egleton. We shall hope that these cherished links will become all the more precious. ever after Fiona's marriage vows have been exchanged with her highly favoured bridegroom; both of them will be well endowed with our fervent prayers and cordial, good wishes! ~ And then, as Sunday, September 29th dawns, St. Edmunds's will prepare to celebrate again; this time in Harvest Festival fashion. The Harvest Thanksgiving FAMILY SERVICE will begin at 5.00 p.m., the hour for aU parishioners to lift heart and voice in one, resounding grateful chorus; "summer and winter, and springtime and harvest; sun, moon and stars in their courses above, join with all nature in eloquent witness to GOD'S great faithfulness, mercy and love ... 路' Following the Service the Auction, according to long tradition, when the Harve.st gifts will be offered, lot by lot, bid by bidl And after all that, the Harvest Home Supper - at 拢7.50 per head BUT free for all harvesters below the magic age of Sixteen! But the 29111 September has another, ancient claim to honourable mention! It is Michaelmas - the Feast Day of st. Michael who, by hallowed tradition, is heralded as Captain of the Angel Host. Many a church has been dedicated to Michael. One of them I could see from the doorstep of my childhood home, atop its neighbouring moorland parish; an esteemed landmark for a thousand years, in the whole locality. Other prominent landmarks, named after Michael and far more famous, include the picturesque island monastery of Mont St. Michel in Normandy; much like it in appearance there is st. Michael's Mount in Cornwall; not least significant is the m~estic, contemporary, Coventry Cathedral as one more profound example of Michael's top rank - in heaven's hierarchy! St. Michael is raised high, too, by his legendary status in this world as ''the guardian of the sick, the protector of the Christian, the receiver of the soul of the dead", hence that well known entreaty "Michael, row the boat ashore! Allelluia!"

&MBLETQN. NEWS A Eucharist of Thanksgiving for celebrating the Golden Anniversary of the Marriage of the Rev'd. Professor John and Dr. Margaret BtJWker'" took place at St. Andrew' $ Chu.rch on .1une 22114, at 11.30 a.m. Resident in Cambridge, and regular visitors to Hambleton Hall, 10hn and Margaret had celebrated their Ruby Anniversary 10 years ~o with their famUy and friends with a service in church followed by a lunch party with rim Hart at the Hotel. This time, a party of 40 familY and friends joined them, some staying at the hotel and all gathering for a lunch party afterwards. Miranda Hall and Julia Naylor had arranged golden flower arrangements, the red carpet was laid down the aisle and the white and gold altar frontal put up for the occasion. Jeremy Onne had co路ordinated the event with the Bowkers and arranged for Araminta's bell ringing team to ring out the bells as the service ended. The service had been planned by Professor Bowker, with the Rt. Rev'd. Martin Shawas celebrant, who anointed John and Margaret with Holy Oil during the service. A glorious choir - Voce (Voices of Cambridge Ensemble) sang the "Pilgrims' Hymn" and "Woven into Fire", both by Stephen Paulus, and "Heilig ist der Her" by Schubert: led by their director Jonathan Sampson and one of its tenors Nicholas Yates - while at Trinity Cambridge they both read theology and came to know John and Margaret. The Rev'd. Professor John Bowker was dean and fellow of Trinity College Cambridge and Gresham Professor of Divinity 1992-1997. He is the author of many books on theology, including "A Brief History of God". Dr. Margaret Bowker is an authority on late medieval and early modem English ecclesiastical history, and she was the first woman to be appointed as secretary to the Faculty of History at Cambridge.

Miranda Hall

All his illustrious pedigree stems from the graphic reference to Michael in Revelation chapter 12 when "war broke out in heaven ~ Michael and his angels fought against the dragon who was thrown down to earth and all his angels with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven = 'Now God has shown his power as King; now his Messiah has shown his authority' . Michaelmas lays indisputable claim to be a chief day in our parish Calendar, or any other! Much like our annual Harvest Festival, perchance?
