The Parish Churches of

St Michael & St Wulfad, Stone, with

St Saviour Aston by Stone

 

Alleluia, Christ is risen!

He is risen indeed! Alleluia!

 

And so it’s Easter – and what a Lent and Passiontide we have had. I was much encouraged by the response to our shared Morning and Evening Prayer at both churches this year:- having not been able to do it last year, this year there were sometimes as many as 8 of us getting to our churches in order to start and end the day in this way. The journey of prayer and saying the Daily Office this way has been really quite inspirational – and I would like to say a very big thank you to everyone who has made the effort to share with us in this way. I hope you have found it as good as I have

Then, of course, we have had our series of speakers in Lent Holy Communion. Again the attendance has been extremely good and much better than last year (I don’t think the “Beast from the East” helped us in 2018!) I will happily confess that this was rather thrown together this year, as there were so many other things on my mind earlier in 2019. But again the reaction has been most positive, with almost all of us saying how helpful it was to hear the Christian journey of those we know on their calling to their various ministries. To my gratification I was also told that Bishop Michael and the Ministry department are thinking of taking up the idea for other parishes, as he leads us in our direction of travel in Discipleship, Vocation and Evangelism. Stone with Aston leads the way!

The biggest question will be “What is next?” of course – and I hope our Ministry Team will be able to meet and decide what kind of thing will help us most in our own journey of faith very soon. But in the meantime, I simply want to remind you that Easter is always a beginning and not an end in itself. Christ is raised – but he calls us all, ever onwards, to better and brighter things; the best is yet to be!

PASCHAL BREAKFASTEaster begins at 6am for us! For those brave enough, there is the reward of a light breakfast in St Michael’s Hall, after the Easter mysteries. If you would like to break your fast like this, there is a list to sign!

Said Judas to Mary, "Now what will you do

with your ointment so rich and rare?"

"I'll pour it all over the feet of the Lord,

and I'll wipe it away with my hair," she said,

"I'll wipe it away with my hair."  Sydney Carter

 

For those of us that can remember the 60s and 70s , a famous modern hymn, of course. But it refers to this week’s gospel, where Mary does exactly this to Jesus, famously recorded in slightly different forms in each of the gospel stories

Judas is famously embarrassed by Mary’s action: nice women just didn’t do this sort of thing in Palestine – and a real Rabbi would never have permitted his dignity to have been so compromised, he reasons. Perhaps we are sympathetic? Having been to some flesh creepingly awful acts of worship in my time, I can’t say it doesn’t include me! But each of us needs to remember that Jesus commends Mary. Her extravagant heart has realised what she owes to the Lord of Life.

So this week we are confronted with an extravagant God – one who spends everything he has for love of you and me. That is the meaning of Passiontide – an extravagant God who will not allow anything to get in the way of our coming home to him

What are you doing on Thursday lunchtimes? At St Michael’s we are holding a Frugal lunch at 12 Noon each week, where proceeds are collected for Christian Aid and for Church funds

 

Lent is a time for reflection and self-denial, of course.   We have various opportunities on offer in our Benefice – Morning and Evening Prayer on Mondays and Tuesdays, the Lent talks on our separate vocations on Wednesdays – and, of course, Bishop Michael’s Lent appeal for help in Mental Health concerns. But I should like to commend to you especially these Thursday lunchtimes. They  give us an extra time to meet together, to “live simply, that others may simply live” – and, of course to help a world that is all too often of people in the most severe need across our Globe

 

So do come and join us. Frugal does not mean the same as “hunger” – and we are offered some delicious home-made soups, bread and cheese and the like. Fellowship in Christ is priceless, of course – and we celebrate the good things we have in our own lives

 

“What can I do to change the world?” is a question we often ask ourselves. This gives us a small chance to do what we can – and you will be warmly welcomed as meet together

MAUNDY THURSDAY CHRISM EUCHARIST – LICHFIELD CATHEDRAL

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

 

I am writing to invite you, and those among whom you minister, to join me in our Cathedral church at 11am on the morning of Maundy Thursday, 18th April. This is a great opportunity for us to come together in mutual support and prayer as we prepare with our people to enter into the great three days celebration of the Lord's passion and resurrection which makes us his people.

 

I look forward to us gathering together as one family from across our far-reaching diocese in the place hallowed by the prayerful, expectant and generous witness to Jesus of our first bishop, St Chad. We will celebrate the Eucharist; we will reflect n the Word of God; we will bless and receive the three holy oils; and we will renew corporately and individually our commitment to ministry. Soup and rolls will be served afterwards, and you are warmly invited to share in this as you greet friends and colleagues from around the diocese.

I do hope that, as those who share in ministry with me and my brother bishops, you will be able to join me in this celebration, and that you will encourage members of your church to accompany you.

 

Be assured of my prayers for you and your people at the beginning of Lent, travelling towards the joy of Easter.

Your brother in Christ  + Michael. Lichfield

And so it’s Lent again – very late this year, almost as late as it can possibly be! It’s all calculated on phases of the Moon, you know, according to the Jewish calendar and how the feast of Passover is worked out

But recently there has been a move to make Easter a fixed date. Older folks amongst us may remember when “Spring Bank Holiday” was the Whitsun (Pentecost) Holiday, and was so subject to the same shifting about. From a secular point of view, one can understand why Schools and businesses would prefer a fixed date - all so much more convenient!

Therein lays a tale, though: how convenient do we want to make God? CAN we make God convenient? In the wonderful “Narnia” books by CS Lewis there is an expression that crops up from time to time – “Aslan is not a tame Lion!” In other words, God does not dance to our tune, but rather asks things of us

All of which brings us back to Lent. Lent is a time for Christians to reflect and pray – how much are we treating God as a convenience – someone to turn to when we are in trouble? And how much are we seriously offering out lives to him? “Send us out in the power of your Spirit” we pray in the modern rite Communion service – but then find things that are more pressing in our lives that seeking what Jesus might ask us to do!

Come near to God and he will come near to you.-James 4: 8. Lent is the time to start afresh and start again. In our service on Wednesday we commit ourselves to a new start in our Faith journey. Come and join us on our road together

This week’s gospel of the stilling of the storm is a favourite story for many of us. In fact, following a theme in the “Adventurers” group this term, it’s been one that Dennis has recently told the children at St Michael’s school

Dennis told the story from a different angle though:- in fact it was thoroughly interactive. The children were sat on benches arranged into a boat shape – the tallest was made into the mast for the sail and some of the children were inside the boat, ready to be terrified at the storm. “Jesus” was in the stern, fast asleep, naturally. The story was acted out for the parents at the end of the session – together with the children singing a song. For those with small children, you might recognise a faint similarity to “The Pirate Song”

 

When I was one

I banged my drum

The day I went to Sea

I climbed aboard a fishing boat

The disciples said to me

We’re going this way, that way

Forward and back on

The Sea of Galilee

“Peace, be still

It is God’s will”

And that’ll do for me

 

So I had best sign this
