St. John’s Sunday Coffee Rota Most of you appreciate how you really enjoy a good cup of tea/coffee after the Sunday Service, with a biscuit/cake and a good chat/catch up. We rely on volunteers to make and serve the refreshments every week. Unfortunately one of our team has had to bow out for personal reasons, so we would dearly love to recruit another to join a most valuable band of helpers. You know we work in pairs, supporting each other and each team is only called upon six times a year. If you are interested please catch me at church or phone 02380 843559 to leave a message and I will get back to you. Thanks Carol Moody

Vicar’s Challenge Throughout August and September Jo ran a challenge to see who could raise the most money from a starter loan of £10 for mission work. It is now time for that loan to be returned and we would ask you to consider donating the profits to the church – ideally through gift aid – a full ranking of the 40+ projects and their tallies will be revealed at the harvest service.

Dear Friends, Whilst autumn may for some conjure up an image of a time of maturity leading into decline, for others it’s a time of new beginnings. It’s the start of the academic year, many are beginning their school life, others are moving into secondary and further education, whilst others are moving into the world of work. It’s a time when we begin to develop and grow our gifts and skills so that in time we will reach our full potential, rather than being a time of decline it’s a time of new beginnings. Jesus at the start of His ministry called the twelve disciples. Between Christ’s Resurrection and Ascension the twelve grew to a group of 120. A little over a week later, on Pentecost, it increased to over 3,000. By the time the last of the twelve died, there were an estimated half-million followers of Jesus Christ. That was the end of the first century. By the end of the second century, this number had increased to almost ten million. By the close of the ninth century, there were 100 million Christians. Today, the number has grown to over one billion believers around the world. None of this growth would have been possible had Christians not been excited and supportive of missions or prayed to "the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest." We’re called, as labourers, to take our talent, however modest it might seem to be, and to do with it what we can. (Matthew 25) Most importantly we’re called to use our God given gifts to sow the seeds of the Gospel and then to bring in the ripened crops and fruit so that it can in turn be used to feed both the hungry and the labourers. This autumn as we give thanks for the harvest that God has so generously provided – it would be good to give thanks for the new beginnings that we are given in Christ “So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” (2 Corinthians 5:17) Yours in Christ, Jo


Parish Philanthropy Food Bank: September 66 August 98 July 110 June 79 May 117 The total for Jan- June was 684 making average of 114.

Towards the back of the magazine you will find a Foodbank shopping list which you can keep as a handy reminder to take with you when shopping. As ever we’d like to reming you to look for those Buy One Get One Free deals on items you normally buy and ask you to consider donating them.

Food for thought ‘WAITING FOR YOU ON THE PORCH…………

On the sixth day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years." The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?" And God saw it was good. Also on the sixth day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twentyyear life span." The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?" And God, again saw it was good. Also on the sixth day, God created the cow and said, "You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years." The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?" And God agreed it was good. Also on the sixth day, God created humans and said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years." But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?" "Okay," said God, "You asked for it." So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone. Life has now been explained to you. There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service. If you are looking for me I will be on the front porch. Author unknown. Kindly submitted by Frank and Sue Wood


Food for thought The Inner History of a Day by John O’Donohue No one knew the name of this day; Born quietly from the deepest night, It hid its face in light, Demanded nothing for itself. A field of brightness that travelled ahead, Providing in time, ground to hold our footsteps And the light of thought to show the way. The mind of the day draws no attention; It dwells within the silence with elegance To create a space for all our words, Drawing us to listen inwards and outwards. We seldom notice how each day is a holy place Where the eucharist of the ordinary happens, Transforming our broken fragments Into and eternal continuity that keeps us. Somewhere in us a dignity presides That is more gracious than the smallness That fuels us with fear and force, A dignity that trusts the form a day takes. So at the end of this day, we give thanks For being betrothed to the unknown And for the secret work Through which the mind of the day And wisdom of the soul become one.

NEWS FROM OUR RWANDAN FAMILY Jeanne, the mum of our Rwandan family re-married in August. This is her recent communication in which she answers some question about Linda's education that I had put to her: Dear Family, I thank God for this special time offered us to talk again. I hope you are all fine and for us we are doing well. I am getting used to the new life. My husband is doing well but some children suffered from stomach worms and they are taking medicine. Here we are experiencing serious heat. Sorry for not giving the information on time concerning the cost that the course of Linda should take in her university studies. As I told you, here there are two options: the first is when a student is chosen for the Government loan. For this case a student pay her/him self the restaurant, home and transport which can cost approximately 800,000 Fr /year. The second option is when the student is totally private: school fees only is around 700,000 Fr/year in the Government universities. The program here took 4 years. In private universities the cost and the duration of the course can be less or more according to the institution and the faculty. Dear family, I thank you for you prayers and support, Pray for Linda, she is working hard to get the Government loan even if the conditions to get it are tough. I will visit her this coming Sunday. Here I send some of our marriage photos. Send our greetings to your congregation and my God bless you. Faithfully Jeanne If you would like to donate to this cause by direct debit The Bank details are as follows: Barclays Bank Lymington Branch, A/C No. 83002152. Sort Code 20-53-53 (Account in the name of Mrs G V Wall & Mrs S Wood.) You can also place any loose change in the box at the back of the church. If everyone donated just ÂŁ5 per year it would make my job so much easier. I have managed to collected in excess of ÂŁ1000 from my transferring videos to DVD service. Thank you all for your continued support. Sue Wood

What We Said 100 Years Ago Taken from The New Forest Magazine for St. John’s, Hythe October 1916 Everyone in Hythe is delighted that Mr. Kerr is making good progress after his serious illness; and we all thank God that in His mercy, He has seen good to answer many prayers in this way and to restore to us for a time for one whom we all entertain feelings of respect and affection. The Revd, W. G. Kerr, Vicar of St. Paul’s, Truro, has spent August in Hythe and very kindly made himself responsible for some of the services; he natural wished to remain here a little longer and so he is taking charge of the Parish from September 9th. to 20th. While the Vicar is taking charge of his Parish in Truro. RED CROSS The alms on Friday, August 4th. amounted to £1 15s 0d and on Thursday evenings, from Easter to August 31st. was £1 5s 9d. THE NATIONAL MISSION. The weeks of preparation are drawing rapidly to a close: but there is still time and opportunity for everyone to do something, and there is something that everyone can do, and that is pray. It is becoming more and more obvious that the Mission may, and probably will, mark a crisis in our national life. There is so much in that life which is not on the side of God, in spite of the heroism and self-sacrifice which the war has called forth. Are we a nation ready to approach God on our knees? That is the question and no one can answer it with a “yes”. Without that, there can be no converted nation . The Mission is not coming to do for us mechanically what we will not do for ourselves. For everyone who really cares and is really honestly trying to draw nearer to God and finding it very difficult, there is a plain duty, and that is the duty of prayer. There are no limits to the power of God the Holy Ghost; there are no limits to the power of real and faithful prayer when it is offered in the name of Jesus Christ by those who are really striving themselves to be penitent.


Perhaps it may help to meditate on the opening verse of the 37th chapter of Ezekiel, they may be full of meaning and of teaching for us. Only the power of God the Holy Ghost will give life to what is spiritually nigh unto death; and for that power, we must all strive to pray as perhaps we have never prayed before. What will help us to do this? The devout and reverent contemplation of the life of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour as told us in the Gospel story, and more especially of His Cross and Passion, all that He did and all that He suffered for us. When we begin to realize, however dimly and imperfectly, the meaning of the Passion, then prayer becomes easy: then the love of Christ breaks down all the barriers, our selfishness and indifference, our sinfulness and our pride, and we come to the Saviour and ask for pardon and for peace. The following words were written by the late Bishop Wilkinson (of Truro and S. Andrews). Church people could not have a more appropriate message at the present time. “Dearly beloved, hold fast the faith once delivered to the Saints. As members of Christ and children of God be satisfied with no merely external improvement, with nothing short of the entire consecration of your whole being to Christ your King. Be watchful about your prayers and quiet hours of communion with God. Read, mark, learn and inwardly digest His Holy Word. Train up your children to value aright and look forward to receiving the great gift of Confirmation. Prepare reverently and go to Holy Communion. Thank God continually that of His tender love He has given His only Son, Jesus Christ, to cleanse all from sin. Never speak or think lightly of sin. Be sure that whatever Satan may whisper to the contrary, every sin great or small will surely find you out. Rejoice always, as those who are partakers of a priceless heritage, whose hearts have been fired with a divine hope of a glorious future. Love from the heart fervently all who are called by the Name of Christ.� Kindly submitted by Roy German


Poetry Corner Village Harvest Festival He heaved up the hilly path sacks of ivory parsnips and carnalian carrots, ruby beets and silvery leeks, to be heaped round the font, still damp from the scrub at the pump. Bicycle-basket loads, of nestled lettuces, and snug new eggs, had to be poised in patterns on the high stone sills. Bush Farm’s horse and cart bore rustling sheaves to be ranked in the porch, sowing grains of wheat in the cracks of the flags. Offered at the altar were George’s cabbages, solid as man’s heads, and a bushel of Worcesters from Rosie Rice’s tree, polished and piled at the pulpit. The squire’s gardener presented a hat-box of silky fleece, cherishing the plush bloom of mysterious dark grapes glowing with hothouse warmth; to be enthroned on the lectern, for all to see, and none to touch.

COOK WANTED St John’s WEDNESDAY LUNCH CLUB, CATERING FOR THE OVER 60’S, ARE IN NEED OF A VOLUNTEER COOK. NUMBERS RANGE TO A MAXIMUM OF 50 BUT AN AVERAGE OF 35. INTERESTED? CALL IN TO THE HALL OFFICE OR CALL 02380 844336 Can you spare some time in the course of a month to help clean our Church? We have a wonderful band of volunteers who attend to the cleaning and dusting of St John’s at the moment but more people are needed to help. It means the more volunteers there are the less time each individual has to put in. Please contact Rosemary Watson, either Church warden or the Hall Office any weekday morning, if you feel you would be able to spare any time at all. We would be grateful for any amount. Thanking you in anticipation. (all submitted by Barbara Griffiths) Gardening for October: All tips taken from the RHS website Cut lawns and hedges for the final time this month before the cold weather starts to set in. Sow out spring cabbages and plant any later flowering spring bulbs. Collect seeds from perennials before cutting back, it is also good time to plant new herbaceous perennials, as the soil is still warm, but moister than it was during the summer. Avoid feeding plants late in the season, as this will encourage sappy growth that is more vulnerable to damage by frost and by wet, and can encourage fungal diseases to develop.

One World Following Merchant Navy Day on September 3rd, which celebrated the bravery of many men and women who have given their lives to seafaring, we share this article from ‘Inspire’ magazine. It was Like Losing a Brother Chaplains from international maritime charity Sailors’ Society, have been supporting the grieving crewmates of a Filipino seafarer who died whilst working on a quay in Scotland. Coping with the death of a colleague is difficult at the best of times, but when you lose someone you have spent months in close quarters with, the loos is arguably even harder to accept. Most people do not consider injury or death on their daily commute to work, but for seafarers, the dangerous nature of their work at times means it can be a genuine concern. But while seafaring can be dangerous, there are people supporting and caring for the world’s 1.5 million seafarers, and their families, in times of despair. In Scotland, Sailors’ Society’s auxiliary port chaplain, Drew Anderson, and ship visitor Murdo MacLeod, have been on hand to administer spiritual and emotional support to the Filipino seafarer’s friends and held a service on board for them. “When I went on board there were a lot of visibly upset people. Working together at sea for many months, the seafarers are close and to them it was like losing a brother,” Drew said. Sailors’ Society has chaplains and ship visitors in 87 global ports across 26 countries and working closely together to support those in need is crucial to its mission. Drew contactacted his fellow Sailors’ Society chaplain Nic Tuban in the Philippines, who was able to comfort the seafarer’s widow and children in Manila. Nic said: “His wife is devastated; she didn’t expect him to die so young. His job as a seafarer was the family’s main source of income and his wife said that he had recently spoken about retiring.” Nic comforted the family and prayed with them; he was also able to give financial assistance in the form of a Sailor’s Society welfare grant.
