From Holy Trinity It’s Showtime Again The end of May and beginning of June marks one of my busiest times as we hit show season. This year I will be starting off with the Heathfield Show in East Sussex organising a stand supporting the two farming charities I work with, the Farming Community Network (FCN) and the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI). The busiest time will be in the three days of the South of England Show in Ardingly, where I have several roles including organising the Church presence at the Sanctuary area. Each year we try to offer something new and have grown what we do substantially over the last couple of years. This year we are hosting a Christian Classical group called Epiphany who perform musical portraits of people. These portraits are made by the individual sitting in the middle of the group and the group play what they feel comes from the individual. A number of people at the show have told me they are both nervous and excited to hear what their portraits will sound like! I am very pleased to be able to support these events as I feel they are important gatherings for people in the countryside, for farmers to show livestock, for producers of local food to show off their wears, for horse and pony events, for dog owners, for all of us. In June we also have our own gatherings and a chance to come together as a village with the Village Fete on the 18th and also this year with the opening of the refurbished play park by the school (hopefully) on the Queen’s 90th birthday, the 11th June. Both good chances for us to get together and catch up with people, perhaps we have not seen for a while. Of course we cannot guarantee the weather for any of these events, but one good thing about being British is that we are used to it being changeable and generally come prepared, so I hope in that spirit rain or shine I will see you around at any of the above. God bless, Mark. 4

News and Views from St. John’s, Coolhurst My Aunt Sylvia died three weeks ago aged 100. She was the last in our family of the wartime generation that went through so much. She was studying piano and flute in Vienna when Hitler marched into Austria. She wrote poetry all her life. She became a head teacher and was a lay Dominican. Her faith was very important to her. She was widowed twice, had four children, was always optimistic and an inspiration. I shall miss her telephone calls so much. She wrote this poem when she was in the WRNS, aged 28. When we pray for the departed I shall remember her. Vicky Storey OPERATIONS ROOM - HMS Watchful (Great Yarmouth)1944 Mr Highton, Mr Highton, are you working very hard? I hear you writing rapidly upon the ML board, While the telephones behind you are buzzing both together. Oh, what will it be this time? A report about the weather? Or minesweepers are fogbound and must anchor for the night? Or reports from Corton coastguard of a funny flashing light? Or the Lysander from Coltishall has failed to find a trace Of the object in the sea and is returning to its base? Perhaps it is the Southbound that is signalling again To say the aircraft shadowing her is just a friendly plane; Or the Northbound has reached Sherringham at least three hours too soon; Or a trawler in the Roads regrets she punctured her balloon? Or a messenger from SDO comes tripping up to say , She hopes the signal wasn’t urgent as there has been some delay? “Impossible. Impossible,” you mutter to yourself As the kitchen cat curls coyly in your basket on the shelf, And you long to have a pillow where the log book blankly lies: And unconsciousness to hide the littered table from your eyes, With those careful calculations of an ML’s ETA, Which proved wrong because she found a piece of wreckage on the way! When the funny flares and flashes seen by Corton come to be Just reflections of the moonlight scintillating on the sea! When the HSL is ordered out and later it is proved That the object she is seeking most mysteriously has moved! When the MGBs break down again, the water tower’s hit By an HE dropped at Caister by a harried Messerschmitt; So that even when your tea arrives, it’s far to foul to drink. I often wonder how I’d feel if I could hear you think! In tricky situations, when you know a man may drown If a rescue boat cannot be sent before the sun goes down, And, entangled in red tape you pace the Operations Room, Knowing YGPs and AFOs may prove a sailor’s doom. I wonder if you dream of days when o’er the Seven Seas An international fleet will sail and men with hearts at ease Will fish and carry cargoes and make voyages again, Without fear of mine and U-boat and the shrieking hostile plane; When the weather will be all with which men find themselves at war And a welcome will be waiting where’re seamen come ashore. Third Officer Sylvia H. Martin, WRNS, c.1944 Abbreviations: Southbound and Northbound- convoys of Merchantmen ; SDO – Signals Distribution Officer; MLMotor launch; ETA – Estimated time of arrival; HSL – High Speed Launch ( rescue); MGB - Motor Gun Boat; HE – High Explosive; YGO – Yarmouth General Orders; AFO Admiralty Fleet Order. 6

In April Mr Ian Everest gave us a talk on Shepherds of the South Downs, which was most interesting, with slides showing the shepherds and their familiar smocks that many wore. The shepherd huts too featured, not many seen nowadays except as garden ornaments. Five of our members went to the Countryman pub at Shipley, for a lunch, which was most enjoyable. More lunches will follow. On Thursday 9th June at 2.30, Mr Peter Benner will give us a talk on "The Coaching Era" especially on the Brighton Road. All welcome to attend and enjoy tea made my members as well. Carly Charman 10

Fourth Part of Grandmother’s Brew Teeth: 1) To preserve – rub teeth with the dried leaves of Red Sage. Flowers of sulphur rubbed on gums and teeth is also good. 2) Toothache – soaked in old type brown paper in vinegar, sprinkle plenty of pepper on it and bandage onto the face – “never failed”!. 3) Another pain reliever is a plug of tobacco soaked in whisky and pressed into the cavity. Throat – sore or relaxed: 1) Put an old woollen sock round the neck, the dirtier the better! 2) or a piece of fat pork kept in place with red flannel and worn for two night. 3) gargle with port or (cheaper) salt water. 4) A soothing gargle is made from the liquor of Red Sage leaves put in boiling water and infused for 10 minutes, to which can be added 12

honey and vinegar. 5) A tbsp each of butter, brown sugar and vinegar put into a glass, stir and drink. Tonsilitis or quinsy): To breakdown, put a piece of well done toast in a dish and soak it in boiling vinegar until it is fully absorbed, Then place it between 2 layers of flannel. Put round throat and keep in place with a scarf tied round the neck. Warts: 1) Repeated applications of any of the following:- the milk from dandelion stems, sow thistle, celandine, or milkwort. Let it dry on. 2) Rub on the inside of a broad bean pod or blackboard chalk. 3) Soak in a strong solution of washing soda and let dry on. 4) Cut the thick end off a large old carrot and scoop out the core to a good hollow down the middle. Fill this with cooking salt, prop carrot upright and leave till the salt has liquified. Dab this on warts frequently, leaving to dry on. 5) First spit in the morning; and best of all 6) a good “Wart Doctor”, if you can find one, who will take or buy them off you, but be sure you give him the right number of warts! Wetting beds: A gipsy remedy known to succeed – give the offender a dead mouse to eat, suitably disguised of course ! Weight reducer: Drink first thing the juice of a lemon and an orange mixed in a little water. Also Fennel leaves chewed regularly are helpful. Next month the final is Grandmother’s Medicine Chest.

Celebrating 150 years of Reader Ministry The Rt Rev Robert Paterson, Bishop of Sodor and Man, has been Chair of the Central Readers’ Council since April 2009. The following is taken from an article which he wrote for the current issue of the Reader magazine. It is 150 years since the Reader Movement began in the Church of England. It was born out of a need to connect the proclamation of the Word with an increasingly secular world, a world in which the Church had lost direct contact with millions. The founding archbishops and bishops realised that people were becoming biblically-illiterate and that there was a need to bring the Bible back into the home and the workplace. They founded a ministry to bring the voice of God back into the conversation. What was so important in this episcopal initiative in 1866, as with the founding of the Mothers’ Union nine years later and the Church Army 16 years later, is that they were all lay initiatives in mission. All, of course, were encouraged and supported by the ordained, but proud to be overwhelmingly lay. That emphasis on lay-ness was not a form of anti-clericalism, but founded on a concept of teamwork in which lay and ordained would work together to pray for and bring in God’s kingdom. Present leaders of the Reader movement use the example of the past to point to the future. The past matters and informs the future: we cannot do anything about the past but we can help to be ‘prophets of a future not our own’, in the words of Archbishop Oscar Romero’s famous prayerpoem: We cannot do everything. And there is a sense of liberation in realising that this enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete but it’s a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord’s grace to enter and do the rest. We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the master-builder and worker. We are workers, not master-builders. We are ministers, not messiahs. We are prophets of a future not our own. I’ve made the point often that one aspect of Eucharistic liturgy in the last 45 years has undermined a decent theology of the Church as the body of Christ. It seemed like a good idea at the time to preface sharing the Peace at the Eucharist by saying, ‘We are the body of Christ ...’ (Saint Paul’s own words); but what it did to Anglicans was to give us the idea, subliminally, that the body of Christ exists only when we are together enjoying one another’s company in church. Whereas, if the image of the body that the Apostle uses three times (Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4) means anything, it must teach us that we remain the body of Christ even when we are dispersed: one is shopping, another in the office, one looking for a job, another is teaching, and so on. That’s the essence of what we mean by lay-ness (and in a very true sense it includes clergy): we are literally the laos, the people of God, dispersed and active as His disciples in the world. To be a Reader is to emphasise the fact that your primary ministry is not in holy buildings with colouredglass windows and pointed arches, but being a disciple, a member of the dispersed people of God, bringing Him into the conversation. 14
