Farewell to Ian Yemm

The Emoji Bible has arrived

Ian presided over his last service for the Sodbury Vale Benefice at St Adeline’s Little Sodbury on Sunday 5th June. Ian’s Work commitments have moved from half time to full time, and he has seen a growth in his workload as expectations a r o u n d Religion and Belief have grown in strategic importance in the Higher Education S e c t o r , which can only be a good thing for the growth of God’s Kingdom. As a result Ian has much less time available and to maintain consistency in his work he is moving his licence to the Bristol diocese, which is where he is based as chaplain to the University of the West of England. We will be sorry to see him go as he has put a lot of effort into supporting the churches of our Benefice, particularly during the vacancy. We wish him God’s blessings for his future and hope to see him in our churches again when he is able..

One of the most widely translated works in history has been given a 21st-century update with millennials in mind with the publication of the Emoji Bible. Described as a “great and fun way to share the gospel”, it interprets all 66 books of the King James Version with Unicodeapproved emoji and commonly-used internet slang and contractions. (emoji, for the uninitiated are the round faces with many different expressions that can be added into text messages on smart phones)

An example from the new Bible Totalling just under 3,300 pages, the book – subtitled “Scripture 4 Millennials” – was published to the iTunes store for US $2.99 on Sunday. Its release comes with declining rates of religious affiliation across the Millennial generation, with the Pew Research Center finding “much lower levels of religious affiliation, including less connection with Christian churches, than older generations” in a May 2015 study of religious affiliation in the US population. Asked whether this was a concern the author said, “I think we should worry more about spreading peace and love and less about what church affiliation we are doing it under.

Snippet from Little Sodbury This entry is in our visitor’s book, written by Deborah from Rome, Italy. “This is the first time I’ve encountered a St Adeline – My mother’s name – and it fits her perfectly: composed, simple, very welcoming and beautiful – even at age 98! Thank-you.

A note of thanks from all the Churchwardens The past year has been a challenging one for the benefice. At the end of March 2015 it was announced that Revd Jane Kenchington would be leaving to take up a new post in Solihull, Birmingham passing the baton of responsibility over to the churchwardens to run the churches. At the APCM's all the wardens were aware of the enormity of this task and I think this verse summed up our feelings: I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year, "Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown." And he replied, "Go out into the darkness, and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than light, and safer than a known way." May that Almighty Hand guide and uphold us all. Wanting to seek God's will for the appointment of a new Rector we had a benefice prayer day, followed by central daily prayer and the distribution of prayer leaflets for personal prayer. God has honoured those prayers and has and is continuing to guide us in all aspects of church life. The Benefice profile was compiled, there were 5 applicants, 2 were interviewed and the Revd. David Bowers has been appointed to be our new Rector in July. This process has taken many hours and we send grateful thanks to all who have been involved in this important decision. Meanwhile the life of our church has continued to run smoothly thanks to the willingness of everyone in our congregations. Our services have continued to run smoothly especially as Revd Yvonne Brae extended her time with us and has been assisted by retired and visiting clergy. Over the past few months Yvonne has been ill so we have been indebted to Michelle, our office administrator, as well as Trish her able assistant. They have done an excellent job organising the clergy rota and all those other 101 jobs they have taken on since Yvonne's illness. We have had many new faces leading our worship and have been blessed by their ministry. We send our grateful thanks to Michelle, Trish, Yvonne and all retired and visiting clergy during this difficult time. As Churchwardens, we would like to thank everyone who attends our churches for all they do. We are all members of the body of Christ and everyone plays their part, whether that is seen or unseen - the Lord knows. We work together well and look forward to working for you and with you in the coming year, which we hope will bring freshness and excitement under the leadership of our new Rector. Once again, many thanks for all the help and support we have received from all our congregations. May the Lord richly bless you all Jane, Joy, Richard, Tina, Brenda and Karen.

it continued to rain for 40 days. Those living at the time saw this as a sign that their venerated saint was not happy about his burial site being moved.

St Swithin’s Day

And so a legend was established - if it rains on St Swithin's Day it will rain for 40 days; if the sun shines, good weather will follow for 40 days instead.

Are there any other myths associated with this day? St Swithin's day was once an auspicious date for apple growers in England. In bygone days they believed that rainfall was actually the saints watering the crops. If summer rainfall was low, they could expect a poor harvest. But if it rained on St Swithin's Day, they would be blessed by a bountiful harvest. Furthermore, apple growers would never pick or eat an apple before July 15th. St Swithin remains one the saints people believe should be prayed to in the event of a drought.

What is the St Swithin's Day myth? It is said that St Swithin's Day, on July 15th, determines what the weather will be like for the next 40 days. So if it's rainy, you can expect rain to fall for the whole of that period! There is a famous rhyme associated with the legend, which has been popular since Elizabethan times: St Swithin's Day, if it does rain Full forty days, it will remain St Swithin's Day, if it be fair For forty days, t'will rain no more

Is there any truth in the myth? According to meteorologists, there is no concrete evidence to support the St Swithin's day myth. In fact the Meteorological Office has tested the myth on no less than 55 occasions and each time no discernible weather pattern followed the 15th July.

How did the myth begin? St Swithin was an Anglo-Saxon Bishop of Winchester, who was well liked and respected for his charitable works and dedication to building new churches. As he lay on his deathbed, he asked to be buried outdoors, in a churchyard where the rain would fall on him and 'ordinary' men could walk over his grave. His wish was granted and for nine years he remained buried outside. But then the monks of Winchester decided his remains should be moved inside, to a specially created shrine in Winchester Cathedral. This event took place on July 15th 971. According to myth, that very same night a huge storm lashed down over the city and

Go further together “There are a lot of conversations going on around the Diocese, and I, for one am excited by that process. A long time ago I studied a course in Community Development. The purpose was to then go and work in African villages, but the principles have remained with me wherever God has taken me. 6


“What becomes rapidly obvious when you move to a new place with a desire to make a difference, is that it would be quicker to do it yourself and avoid forming committees and groups! But that implies that the end goal is more important than the process. That can be really helpful if you want to build some new building, but if you want to build community the process is really the goal! An African proverb I keep bumping into says, ‘If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’ “So, the process of building community, empowering people and raising aspirations requires many (unhurried) conversations. So often, for the sake of expediency we do things ‘to’ our communities, but in reality that is often disempowering and ends up causing damage rather than development. “So, I am excited by the conversations going on for two reasons: firstly because there will be some real insights that I am trusting God will give us as we listen to Him and one another; secondly because the very process of listening to one another is a major step in seeing us engage with our communities (and many of our communities are not used to being listened to). For me, the process is probably more important than a list of answers.” Revd Chris Maclay, Forest Area Dean and Vicar of Bream

previously worked in the Manchester Diocese since my ordination in 1984. You can read more about us in the profile on our benefice website. I was very encouraged by the profile produced during the vacancy as you sought a new leader and, as well as quickly finding my way around and getting to know the churches and communities, I shall work with you to take the areas you identified as priorities forward, for example in outreach and in continuing to work together as a benefice. As we look to the future, we are also of course part of the Diocesan “Journeying Together” discernment and listening process with Bishop Rachel. As we seek God’s way forward, both as a benefice and as a diocese, I would be very happy to listen to your views, hopes and vision. Above all, we are called as Christians to reflect God’s love and hospitality to all people, and for me this means we always seek to be inclusive and generous in our welcome to all, as well as collaborative in recognising that all God’s people share in the work of ministry in various ways. It also means that we are outward-looking, both locally in our communities and in recognising that we are part of a worldwide family. One of the ways that Judith and I have been enriched in recent years has been in our links with the Church in India and in sharing the life of our brothers and sisters there. Of course the heart of all of our life as the Church is prayer and I hope this will always be a priority for us. I look forward to working with you and to meeting you David Bowers

Faith in the world

Actually England seems a whole world away from here. Our driver comes at 8am to take us to FEBCambodia offices where we do our training every day. Yesterday the temperature at 8am was 32 degrees and 38 when we returned. The wet season is just getting started and we have s e e n A typical tuktuk torrential rain with thunderstorms. But this morning is beautifully sunny – and air humid. When we don’t have a driver – as at weekends – we get around in tuktuks.

Could you coach a pioneer? Pioneer ministers are people who are building church communities outside traditional church settings. We have a number of these ministers in our Diocese who are doing something new and exciting within their ministry. Everyday kindness and neighbourliness is increasingly being recognised as an important part of the church’s mission: the ability to both give and receive with grace as we come alongside the people we share our neighbourhood with. It is practical, about real lives and real people, but at the same time rooted in Christian spirituality and in Jesus’ example, as he expressed similar qualities in his ministry. As a Diocese we are exploring coaching as a means to support those in pioneer ministry. We are looking for people with coaching skills used in the workplace, or people with good listening skills willing to undertake some training in coaching. Expertise in pioneer ministry is not necessary though an openness to this way of working is needed. If you feel able to offer your support, please contact cwilliams@glosdioc.org.uk or telephone her on 01452 835543 for an informal chat.

Michelle 01454 325160 office@svbcofe.org.uk Do you sometimes think, why has that been arranged for then, we’ve got… In the benefice lots of things happen, but sometimes not everyone knows about them! This is where the Forthcoming Events Calendar can be really useful, if you tell us in the office when you are planning an event – even if the date at that stage is vague we can tell everyone by publishing it here in Outlook (forthcoming events could be as much as a year or even more in advance) and in the online benefice calendar. So if you’re planning an event let us know even if the date isn’t quite fixed we can publish with vague dates like “early Feb tbc” or “week of the 8 March tbc” just so the idea is out in the community and firm up the details closer to the event. We look forward to hearing from you. Michelle and Trish
