St Michael & St Wulfad, Stone, with

            We are almost at the end of the Trinity season, next week being the last Sunday after Trinity – and in this week’s gospel, Jesus reminds us of the vast importance of prayer. “More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of, Wherefore, let thy voice rise like a fountain for me night and day.” wrote Alfred Lord Tennyson. And, in our hearts of hearts we know that to be true.

            The problem is that it’s hard! We can all easily rattle off a “shopping” list of prayers each day – but is that really what God asks of us? True prayer may begin in silence, when we try to listen to God speaking to us in prayer: and God is not a cosmic fruit machine, whereby we put in a request and, if we are lucky, the right combination comes up and we get the answer we want!

            And Jesus tells us to persevere in prayer. It’s all too easy to give up – how many people do you know that will tell you they lost faith when something happened they think God should not have allowed?  One of the things that constantly impresses me on my own spiritual journey is the constancy of those who are called to the Religious life of a Monk or Nun: their lives are filled with prayers, many times a day, let alone the times they spend praying alone. Not many of us may be called to that kind of life, but we are all called to pray constantly

In one of my parishes was a lady whose mother died after a long illness. When nature eventually took its course, she was in floods of tears with my predecessor as Vicar – who managed to point out that her mother had died, as she wished, at home and in no pain. This may not have been the answer she wanted – but undoubtedly the Good Lord was there, answering prayer in that moment

It wouldn’t take a genius to be able to work out that Harvest is probably one of the world’s most ancient religious festivals! Each year human beings have gathered together to worship their creator and to make an offering in thanksgiving for the fruit of the earth – and there is evidence of this kind of thing right back to the Stone Age

You can see it in some of the earliest books of the Bible as well. In Deuteronomy  you can read some of instructions for the Hebrew peoples to bring their offerings and to set them before the Priest. But in this instance it is important that we notice a difference between them and other peoples. For most subsistence farmers, Harvest was both a thank offering for the past year and a prayer that the years following would be just the same: blessed by the right amounts of rain and sunshine, may the crops be enough to carry us through in the same old ways. But this wasn’t so for the people of Israel. They saw Harvest as a season in which they remembered that their God was a God who made a difference. Far from tomorrow being the same as yesterday, Harvest was a time to remember the God that had rescued them out of slavery in Egypt. Their offering and prayer was to a God who loved them and changed things for the better!

So our Harvest services are a reminder to us about a God who knows our needs, who has changed the world already, and is still changing it in Christ Jesus. Above all, Christians are called to be a people of hope – hope for the future that is, with ourselves, in the hands of God 

Enjoy the Harvest

Ian Cardinal.

September 15th saw our 40th Wedding anniversary, as many of you already know. Our daughters and son in Law had told us that last Saturday, they would be taking us out for a meal:- little did we know that this was a blatant “fib” , and that they had actually organised a surprise party in St Michael’s hall, with many of our family and friends having driven big distances to celebrate with us!

So, last Sunday followed in the chain of events, with our enjoying cake with our church family after both 9.15am and 10.45am. Not only this, but they had colluded with Rev’d Alison to arrange a renewal of our wedding vows after 10.45am. To say that we were choked with emotion is putting it mildly!

So, instead of writing the usual “blurb” for the pewsheet, this week we want to say a huge Thank you to everyone who has shared the occasion with us. As I said to our guests on the Saturday night, you are all very special people as your cards and gifts have shown. Thank you is simply inadequate. We are touched and moved by your kindness. God bless you all

In todays’ Gospel, Jesus tells a parable about a dishonest steward who is commended for his prudence.

A steward is dismissed because he is squandering his master's property. He is called dishonest because he is not serving the interests of the rich man, his employer. Trying to curry favour for himself among the rich mans debtors, he brokers repayment of the rich mans’ loans by foregoing the interest and fees that had been levied to line the servants pockets. It is this action, in which the steward puts aside his greed and takes the longer perspective in order to enhance his security, which is commended by the rich man.

The passage concludes with 3 morals, first that the listeners should be prudent about the use of wealth. Secondly, trustworthiness. Those who can be trusted in small things can be trusted with great things. Finally, Jesus tells his listeners that no-one can serve two masters simultaneously.

This week we face a real challenge. How do we respond to the call to “renounce” all we have so that we can be a disciple of Jesus? Someone once pointed out that you and I may be the only Bible some people ever read. Do we truly mirror the Lord in every aspect of our daily lives? Is the joy of the Lord our strength? What have you had to deny, or put aside in order to follow Jesus? Was it worth the cost? What have you depended on in the past that you left behind to follow Jesus? Wealth? Fame? Relationships? Leisure time? Remember, there is no such thing as cheap grace. Everything comes at a cost. We are promised a cross when we sign on to follow the Lord. Authentic discipleship requires radical commitment. What will it cost you this week? What is the cross you bear? Pay the price, carry the weight, and anticipate the joy that will be yours when you hear from Jesus, “well done, good and faithful servant.”

            As many of you will know, my brother was a Circuit Judge. He once described to me the experience of going to a barbeque, where it was quite obvious that they were being ignored, because they weren’t part of the “in” crowd who all knew each other. Eventually one lady turned to him and said condescendingly “and what do you do?” When he replied he was “one of Her Majesty’s justices”, the woman’s expression changed and the assembled guests began to rather fawn about him!

            A shallow reaction, of course – and one doesn’t have to think long before we can answer the question as to what Jesus would think of such behaviour. At the polite dinner party to which he was invited in this week’s gospel, he is dismissive of those who vie for the top places. He tells a parable which talks of sitting down in the lowest place, in the hope of promotion, rather than thinking the best place is reserved for us

            Then Jesus goes a bit further. He says that we should throw parties, not for those who can repay us, but especially for those who can’t! I confess this challenges me:- not that we throw many dinner parties; but how many times do we do things in expectation that people will treat us similarly? All this reminds me of a poem that one of our congregation put in the magazine some years ago:

 

I dreamed death came the other night

And Heaven’s gate swung wide.

With kindly grace an angel ushered me inside.

And there to my astonishment,

Stood folk I’d known on earth.

Some I judged and labelled as unfit—

Or of little worth.

Indignant words rose to my lips,

But never were set free.

For every face showed some surprise

No one expected me!

New Archdeacon of Walsall.

Julian moved to the West Midlands when he was Associate Minister at St Andrew’s, West Bromwich, and Minority Ethnic Anglican Concerns Officer for Lichfield Diocese, from 1999-2002, and has served in the region ever since. Currently Vicar of St George’s Edgbaston in Birmingham Diocese, he is eagerly anticipating his new role in which he will have responsibility for churches across a large part of South Staffordshire and the Black Country including Walsall, Wolverhampton and West Bromwich.

Julian was ordained in 1991 in Southwark Diocese and served as a curate in Wimbledon before becoming vicar in Cottingley, Bradford. After his time in Lichfield Diocese, he became Team Rector in Coventry before he was National Training Co-ordinator for Minority Ethnic Anglicans from 2008-2011. Julian has spent the last eight years as vicar in Edgbaston, an area with great ethnic, socio-economic and religious diversity where his focus has been on using the church as a “community catalyst” through school partnerships and special events. He also served recently as Interim Archdeacon of Birmingham.

Julian (59) is married to Jane who has a lead role in Birmingham Children’s Trust adoption service. They have four children. Julian enjoys golf, cricket and going to the theatre and cinema in his spare time.

The Diocesan Bishop of Lichfield, the Right Revd Dr Michael Ipgrave, added: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome Julian back to Lichfield Diocese and to my senior staff team. He brings a wealth of experience to the role as a church leader in a variety of diverse and challenging areas. I am sure that the churches across South Staffordshire and the Black Country will benefit from his enthusiasm and experience.”

Julian will begin the role following his installation and licensing service at Lichfield Cathedral on 8 November
