Minister’s Letter " Dear friends!

"

In the old days, people thought Jerusalem was the centre of the universe. We know now that’s not literally true, but the events at Jerusalem at the first Easter were so stupendously important and so significant that we might well consider them the centre of human history and the centre of God’s actions. In those events the immortal God died; the holy God suffered a criminal’s death; divine love met human hatred head-on. They are about God entering into the depths of human suffering and sin. They are about God overcoming evil, sin and death - our greatest enemies. They are the means by which humans can live at peace with God, at peace with each other and at peace with ourselves.!

"

Somebody once said about the cross, that it is:!

"

• • • • • •

"

a picture of violence, yet the key to peace! a picture of suffering, yet the key to healing! a picture of death, yet the key to life! a picture of weakness, yet the key to true power! a picture of hatred, yet the key to love! a picture of supreme shame, yet our supreme boast.!

The Easter events bring into focus everything that happens in the news, everything that happens in your life and mine, everything that ever happened in the world. They make sense of our lives today, giving us meaning and purpose and hope for the future. So it’s not surprising that Easter is the highpoint of the Christian year. 3

" Easter Events for Erdington, Stockland Green & Witton "

On Maundy Thursday, 17 April at 7.30pm we’ll share bread & wine, hot cross buns and tea, to remember Jesus’ last meal with his disciples. We’ll see how Jesus gave new significance to the Jewish Passover, and that will help us to understand Easter and Holy Communion better. Venue: Erdington Methodist Church.!

"

On Good Friday, 18 April we’ll join with Christians from other churches in a procession of witness. We’ll meet at 10.30 am in front of Erdington Co-op and walk slowly along the High Street for a short service at St Barnabas’.!

"

On Good Friday, 18 April at 3pm we’ll have a short service. The church will then be open for quiet prayer, meditation and reflection until 5.00 pm, and there will be music, pictures and other things to help us. Come and go as you wish during that time. Venue: Stockland Green Methodist Church.!

"

On Easter Sunday there will be Holy Communion followed by breakfast at Erdington (8.00 am) and Stockland Green (8.30 am). Then celebrations continue at the usual Sunday service times.! 4


Seeking God’s direction together On Sunday 6 April, after the morning service, we’ll have a bring & share lunch together and then some time looking together at the life of our Church, where you’ll be able to share your views and where together we’ll seek God’s vision for the church for the year ahead. To help us, Michele Simms will lead us into a ‘Healthy Church review’. We’ll be finished by 3.00 pm, but put it in your diary now! We need you there.!  ! At that meeting we shall also have a brief annual meeting at which we elect our Church stewards and Church Council members for the year ahead. (Church stewards are the lay leaders of the local church. The Church Council are its trustees and policy-making body.) Only Church members can vote. If you aren’t sure whether you’re a member, or if you are interested in becoming one, please speak to Rev Paul.!

" " Heartfelt Thanks

Many thanks to Tracy Arkinstall for her work as a Young Church Leader.  Tracy has stepped down after doing this work for many years.  We thank her for her dedication.  !  ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Norma Senior!

Hazy days Recently an old friend sent us a copy of the Sutton News from May 20th 1955, price 3d (1.25p). I am not sure where he got it from because he didn’t even live in Sutton at the time that this edition was published. I probably wouldn’t have given it much houseroom except that I glanced at the back page – Personal – and my eyes alighted on the following !

"

Young Man with latest type Shooting Brake invites enquiries from interested parties re camping holiday, France, Italy, July 26th to August 5th; cost £15, including sea passage, Chester Road, Wylde Green, near Pavilion Cinema.!

"

How life has changed, “shooting break”, “sea passage”, even without the implied possibility of a mixed sex holiday. It encouraged me to read on and note that this was still sufficiently close to war for the Coal Merchant to offer ‘un-rationed coal’.!

"

There was a wonder cure for Leg Ulcers – standard size 7/6, economy 12/- Post free from “The Clinic Laboratories”.!

"

There were adverts for people working from home:!

"

Two people offering to renovate and remodel your fur coat, one in Orchard Road and one in Tamworth Street. Three people willing to provide “individually designed fashion foundations". Lastly there was an ad from Lozells selling replacement rubber or wooden rollers for your wringer. When did you last use a wringer? Do you even know what a wringer is?!

"

6


Moving on to other pages I couldn’t help but notice that the price of a house has gone up about 100 fold. Houses that would now be offered at £300,000 were about £3,000. Which, when you think about it is about the same for the cost of the paper itself. This one cost 1.25p and many national dailies cost over £1.00. Interestingly televisions are offered at between £79-10-0 and £110-0-0. No 100 fold increase there then.!

"

Gilbert Micklewright, ex local preacher had an advert for his Hairdresser's 79-81 Gravelly Lane, telling the world that he was saturated with work so if you wanted your hair dressed you had better make a booking soon.!

"

There were two block adverts for nursing staff at St Michael’s Hospital. One was for Auxiliary Nurses, resident or non-resident, was accompanied by the salaries bring offered.!

" ! ! ! !

"

Women 18 years - £4-12-0! Women 19 years - £4-15-11! Women 20 years - £5-1-8! Women 21 years - £6-0-10 to £7-17-2!

A driver offering his services with a van, anything considered, PO.Box 4, The Library, Mere Green. Another helpful service that our Libraries no longer offer.!

"

Closer to home, the Erdington Methodists paid a visit to Sutton Coldfield to play cricket. On this occasion the Erdington cricket team won by 129 to 109. Also the Gravelly Hill Methodists, including one Peakman not out, beat the Birmingham Citadel 59 to 11 the lowest total ever scored against the Gravelly Hill team. ! 7


" There was interesting little piece about Afghanistan. A member of the Australian United Nations delegation to Afghanistan had introduced farmers there to the scythe. Before then the native people had been using sickles to harvest their crops. !

"

It was obviously close to a general election because there were pieces in about the left and the right. In addition there was an editorial piece about the pros and cons of the hydrogen bomb. !

"

One final quote is in order, demonstrating that nothing has really changed, except for the 100 fold.!

"

Four Oaks Methodist Church – Day of Gifts and Prayer! To meet the last £500 of our church restoration scheme the minister the Rev W. Strawson, M.A. will stand in the church entrance throughout the day to receive your gifts. Will you help us and pray with us?!

Real Easter Egg 2014 campaign launches with new range The Real Easter Egg campaign now has three eggs in the range: a ‘special edition’ egg with chocolate bar and an olive wood holding cross from the Holy Land; a ‘sharing box’ with 20 smaller eggs and 20 Easter story booklets in the box; and a blue boxed egg which comes with a 24 page Easter story book and some Chunky Chocolate Buttons.!

"

Out of the 80 million Easter Eggs sold in the UK every year, the Real Easter Egg is the only one which tells the Easter story, gives money to charity and is Fairtrade.!

"

The Meaningful Chocolate Company came up with The Real Easter Egg in 2010. It was a real struggle as all the supermarkets turned it down at first. So in December 2010 churches and schools joined together to establish the egg by placing orders and making it a mail order hit. To date, more than 450,000 eggs have been sold with 210,000 sent through the post directly to churches and schools.! Last year more than 120,000 were sent through the post directly to churches and individuals. Last year many congregations found a champion who promoted the Real Easter Egg, put sign-up lists in church, took money and placed a direct order with The Meaningful Chocolate Company. !

"

You can read more at www.realeasteregg.co.uk!

"

David Marshall, from the Meaningful Chocolate Company, explains; “Being the UK’s top selling mail order egg means that not only has there been an increase in Fairtrade chocolate sales, but 9


nearly £120,000 had been donated to charity and, as each egg had an Easter story booklet in the box, the core message of the faith was also passed on. It is a gift that offers hope and new life and is very different from the other eggs on the market.”!

" Dare I say it - earwax

I came across an interesting fact the other day. The cells on the surface of your ear canal move. If you put an ink mark on your eardrum, over the next few weeks it moves towards the outside. Why is that important? Well if they didn’t then over a period of time your ear canal would block completely stopping you from hearing.!

"

The eardrum is very delicate and hidden away inside the skull for protection. The ear canal, which carries the sound to the eardrum, needs to be kept clear. Therefore the cells of the lining ear canal have to move to carry out all of the muck and dirt that finds its way in there to keep it clear.!

"

And the earwax, well that is just like the stuff that we sweat out all over the rest of our bodies, slightly acidic to help prevent infections. But because we cannot wash it off it tends to accumulate. It comes out carried along by the cells lining the ear canal and all the rest of the other rubbish that accumulates in this delicate but necessary cul-de-sac.!

"

Another example of the wonder of creation.!

GOOD FRIDAY ! ! !

! ! !

Because, dear Christ, your tender, wounded arm ! Bends back the brier that edges life's long way, ! That no hurt comes to heart, to soul no harm, ! I do not feel the thorns so much to-day. !

! ! ! !

! ! ! !

Because I never knew your care to tire, ! Your hand to weary guiding me aright, ! Because you walk before and crush the brier, ! It does not pierce my feet so much to-night. !

! ! ! ! !

! ! ! ! !

Because so often you have hearkened to ! My selfish prayers, I ask but one thing now, ! That these harsh hands of mine add not unto ! The crown of thorns upon your bleeding brow. ! ! ! ! ! ! E. Pauline Johnson – 1861 – 1913!

"

"

"

It seems to me that the essence of this moving poem is an ! overwhelming recognition of Jesus’ amazing love. When I first read ‘Good Friday’ something prompted me to find in my hymn book the beautiful hymn by Isaac Watts – ‘When I survey the wondrous cross’. To my way of thinking, the words of Pauline Johnson’s poem and those of ‘When I survey’ reflect, each in its own totally unique manner, the fact that Jesus suffered the painful thorns of life to save us all. !

" ! ! ! ! !

! ! ! ! !

! ! ! ! !

Were the whole realm of of nature mine,! That were a present far too small;! Love so amazing, so divine,! Demands my soul, my life, my all.! ! ! ! ! Barbara Rawson! 18


Baby A small boy wanted a baby brother, so his father suggested he pray every night for one. The boy began to pray earnestly, night after night. When nothing happened, he gave up. After a few months his dad said they were going to see mum in the hospital and he was going to get a big surprise. When they got to the room, the little boy saw his mother holding two babies. “Well, what do you think about having twin brothers?” his dad asked. The little boy thought for a moment and replied: “It is a good thing I stopped praying when I did.”!

" Numbers

A father had taken his small son to church. The boy sat passively until the minister announced: “We will now sing hymn four hundred and twenty-nine: ‘Ten Thousand Times Ten Thousand’….four hundred and twenty-nine.” Alarmed, the boy nudged his father: “Do we have to work this out?”!

" Horse

A minister trained his horse to go when he said: ‘Praise the Lord’, and to stop when he said; ‘Amen’. One day he was out for a gallop when he saw a deep gorge ahead. He kept shouting ‘Amen!’, and finally the horse stopped. The minister was so relieved that he looked up to heaven and said a heartfelt: “Praise the Lord!”!

" Feelings come and go

“The great thing to remember is that though our feelings come and go God's love for us does not.” ! ― C.S. Lewis! 19


The Writing’s on the Wall? While many parents still think it is important for children to engage with the Bible, what actually happens these days is quite different. !

"

A recent nationwide study by YouGov has found that a staggering 29% of children could not identify even The Nativity story with the Bible.!

"

The YouGov research was released in a recent report by Bible Society to launch ‘Pass It On’, a campaign calling on parents to pass Bible stories to their children. Here are just some of the findings, for children aged 8 to 15 and for parents with children aged 3 to 16:!

"

• Parents believe Bible stories are important; and children want to hear more!

• 43% of parents think Bible stories provide values for a good life, and 40% think they are important to our history and culture. Just 12% say it was not important for children to know Bible stories. More than a quarter of all children (28%) also say that they would like to know more Bible stories (peaking around the ages of 8 and 9 where it rises to 40% and 41% respectively).!

• Around half of children never read or are read Bible stories, in contrast to their parents!

• Over half of children polled (54%) never or less than once a year read Bible stories at school or home. By contrast, around 9 in 10 parents (86%) had learned Bible stories as children.!

• 45% of parents never read Bible stories to their child. Even almost a third (30%) of Christian parents say they never read Bible stories to their young children. ! 20


• Many children have not read or heard classic Bible stories! • A quarter of children (23%) do not know Noah’s Ark or The Nativity (25%), rising to 38% for Adam & Eve and 43% for The Crucifixion. More than half have never heard of Joseph and his coat of many colours (54%), and David & Goliath (57%) or even the Creation story (63%).!

" Sir Andrew Motion, Poet Laureate (1999-2009) says that these statistics are becoming a disturbing reality. He adds that many of Britain’s brightest students no longer know the story of Adam and Eve - making it difficult for academics to teach crucial literary and historical texts. “It's essential for us to keep these stories alive, regardless of our religious beliefs (or lack of them); they are indispensable to our understanding of the past, and to the enrichment of our present.”!

" !

" " Musical mistakes found on R.E. exam papers  ! David was a Hebrew king who was skilled at playing the liar. He fought the finkelsteins, a race of people who lived in biblical times.!  !

Vision Project When details of this project were first agreed I wonder how many of you thought that it would never happen? Now we are waiting for tenders, surveys are complete and, as Veolia have promised a substantial sum towards the first stage, we expect a financial agreement with them will be signed by mid–April, with work towards the first three stages rather one at a time over 5 years, starting around June/July.!

"

Applications are ongoing but we need to work as hard as ever at our own fund-raising and we need your help to make all our events as successful as possible.!

"

The Vision Group are working hard all the time with planning, creating posters and handouts, and encouraging. We are disappointed when, after much advertising, a few people still appear not to know what is happening and when!! Please look at the posters in the foyer and the corridor and at the back of the church, and if you can take a poster, or handouts to display or some tickets to sell, this would be very helpful.!

"

The Tuesday Club are working hard for their coffee morning on March 29th, and we hope they do well.!

"

The next important event is on April 26th when Midland Opera will be entertaining us – hopefully to a full church. See the poster in the church and elsewhere in the magazine. There is also a programme (not quite finalised) in the foyer and corridor and we hope that this will encourage you to come and bring others with you. Midland Opera is an excellent company.!

"

22


Please read the details of the car Treasure Hunt on May 11th which will be a very enjoyable afternoon. Meanwhile we have taken notice of the response to the film show questionnaire and hope to plan another one very soon. !

"

All the Vision pens have been sold making a profit of ÂŁ100.00. We are now considering other merchandise so look out for this. There is a permanent collecting box at the back of the church for anyone who wishes to make a donation, especially if you are unable to support any events, and for visitors to the church. Meanwhile, to all of you who give your support and are very generous, a very big THANK YOU. !
