Christmas gifts

Welcome to the Christmas 2006 edition of Impact.

The theme this time is Gifts - apt for the season of

giving.

The Christmas story has giving at its very heart. Most

of us recall the timeless story of the wise men who

travelled from the east following an unusual light in

the sky. We are told they were overjoyed when,

having made a detour, they saw again the star and eventually found themselves

standing before the infant king. What did they do? Naturally they bowed down

and worshipped, and then they gave gifts.

Giving is a sign. A sign of gratitude. Of thankfulness. So it was a proper thing

for the wise men to do. And it’s a proper thing for us, too, at Christmas-time.

If we’re honest, choosing, buying (or making) presents at Christmas can

sometimes be a pain in the backside! Some people are just so difficult to choose

for, aren’t they? And yet, if we are really to get into the Christmas spirit, giving

presents shouldn't just be ’another thing to have to tick off the list’ but something

more meaningful. Like the wise men, it should be a sign of gratitude.

Christmas is, of course, the birthday of Jesus Christ. Normally when someone

has a birthday, we give them gifts. But at Jesus’ birthday - as I often remind my

children - Jesus is so kind that he lets us give presents to each other instead.

Wow! Now, if that’s not a tremendous sign of generosity, then I don’t know what

is!

Actually, there is a greater sign of giving than that. It’s tied up in the heart of the

Christmas story itself. Scripture tells us that God loved us humans so much that

he gave his only Son, Jesus Christ to us, as a gift from heaven. A gift to be

enjoyed and celebrated. A gift to be received and unwrapped. A gift that makes

an amazing difference - not just to the Christmas season - but to the whole of

life, for it is in following and knowing Jesus Christ that true freedom is found,

both sides of eternity. Now that is a gift worth receiving and unwrapping!

So, as you choose gifts and give gifts at this wonderful season of Christmas,

don’t forget to enjoy the best gift of all - Jesus Christ. Have a very happy

Christmas - and you would be very welcome to join any of our Christmas

celebration services (see page 17 of this magazine).

fun

“I never repeat gossip,

so I’ll say this only

once…..”

“Thanks for the trumpet you

gave me for Christmas,”

little Joshua said to his

uncle” it’s the best

Christmas present I have

ever had.”

“That’s great” said his

uncle, “Are you learning

how to play it?”

“Oh I don’t play it,” the little

fellow said. “My mum gives

me 20p a day not to play it

during the day and my Dad

gives me £1 a week not to

play it at night.”

No matter how many

Christmas Cards you

send out, the first one

you get is from someone

you’ve missed.

One Christmas, mum declared that she was no

longer going to remind her children to write their

‘thank-you’ notes.

As a result, their grandmother never received

acknowledgement of the generous cheques she

had given.

The next year was very different however.

“The children came over in person to thank me,”

the grandmother told a friend triumphantly.

“How wonderful” the friend exclaimed. “What do

you think caused the change in behaviour.”

“Oh that’s easy, I didn’t sign the cheques this

year.”

Our Youngest daughter, Nancy, was

almost four. My wife and I & our four

older children had tried to prepare

Nancy for Christmas by talking with

her about the real meaning of Christmas

and why the family celebrated it.

Nancy had a wonderful Christmas

with a lot of presents and toys. A few

days later, she was talking with her

older sister about what a great Christmas

she had, and said, “I sure hope

Joseph and Mary have another

baby.”

The children of our parish had been

rehearsing their Christmas play for days,

and knew all their lines. Right on cue,

the innkeeper said “There’s no room, you

cannot stay here.”

No-one was

prepared, however,

for Mary when she

turned to Joseph

and said, “I told

you to book a

room.”

Giving a pint I mean.

Fancy a pint?

If you are one of the 5% of the population that gives

blood, brilliant, if you aren’t — why not?

There are a number of possible answers to this question,

but only two are really acceptable.

1) You do not qualify or have been declined

2) You faint at the sight of a needle

The availability of blood and the products that can be produced from blood is an

essential part of our health care system. Without an efficient and well supplied

blood donation scheme many of the procedures we take for granted from the medical

services could not take place. We tend to take it for granted that if we are severely

injured and require a transfusion that suitable blood will be available as easily

as water from the kitchen tap. Blood and its components are essential for surgery

as well as for the treatment of many cancers and immune system deficiencies.

Nearly three million donations are required in the UK annually to keep pace with

demand.

Who can give blood?

You should be able to donate blood every four months without any adverse effects if

you are:

☺ healthy

☺ weigh over 50kg

☺ Between 17 and 65 years old (or 60 for first-time donors).

A number of restrictions do apply. These are gone through fully with the nurse at the

start of each blood donation session. The assessment at the donation centre is

completely confidential.

What happens when you give blood?

• You must have eaten within a few hours before attending the blood donor

session, so that you don’t get faint or dizzy during the session.

• The next stage is to check whether you are anaemic. A few drops of blood are

taken from a prick in your finger and dropped into a coloured solution.

• If you pass the test for anaemia, you can donate one unit of blood. This

represents only 10-12 per cent of the amount of blood in an adult, and the

body quickly makes good the loss.

• A needle is inserted in a vein at the elbow. It takes about 10-15 minutes for the

blood to be taken. The needles used are sterile and discarded after a single

use - they cannot transmit infection.

• After giving blood you should relax for a further 10 minutes.

• You will be given something to eat and drink before leaving the blood donor

session.

Tel: (0114) 274 5086


How often can a person give blood?

Normally not more than once every 16 weeks. This gives your blood time to build up

its stores of iron before your next donation.

How can I become a blood donor?

It’s really easy. You can just turn up at the Sheffield Blood Donor Centre located at

Cathedral Court

Church Street

Sheffield S1 2GN

This centre is open Mon/Wed/Fri 09:00-16:30

Tue/Thu 12:00-19:00

Further information can be obtained by phoning 0845 7 711 711

Or logging onto the National Blood Service website www.blood.co.uk

Did you know? They only discovered that blood came in different types in

1900. The National Blood Service was set up 46 years later to collect and provide

blood supplies for all the hospitals in England and North Wales. 8,000 units of blood

are needed every day to meet this demand, which keeps rising. Blood comes in four

main types - O, A, B and AB. Group O is the most common which means it's in

demand the most. But blood can also be subdivided into its main components - red

cells, white cells, platelets and plasma. Unfortunately red cells only last 35 days and

platelets are only good for five days. That's why they’re always after your blood.

It’s a wrap

Gifts have been wrapped since the invention

of paper in 105 A.D. in China.

The paper-making process was kept a

secret by the Chinese for centuries, but

by 800 A.D. the process was known in

Egypt. The secret spread to Europe,

where the first paper mill was started in

1085.

Holiday gift giving began long before

Christmas. The Romans would give gifts

to one another on pagan festivals like

Saturnalia, the winter solstice, and the

Roman New Year. The tradition of gift

giving became associated with Christmas

because of the offerings of the Three

Wise Men, though early on the Church

discouraged the practice of gift giving because of its pagan associations. But by the

Middle Ages the tradition had become so popular that it became a mainstay of the

holiday season.

Wallpaper, first made in England in 1509, was the forerunner of gift wrap and was

used briefly, but it cracked or tore when folded. In the late 19 th century,. gifts were

wrapped in simple tissue paper or more sturdy brown paper. The technology did not

exist to mass produce a decorated, foldable, paper until the 1890's, when

developments in printing presses allowed coloured ink to be printed fluidly on stiffer

papers. A rotary system developed that allowed the printed paper to be rolled onto

cardboard rolls or cut into smaller sheets. The printed gift wrap industry took off at

the turn of the century

Though the practice of gift giving has a long Christmas history, those gifts being

presented in colourful paper and tied up in curls of ribbon is a relatively new

practice. While Christmas cards began to be sent in the mid-nineteenth century it

wasn't until many years later that dressing up presents in Christmas finery caught

on.

Early gift wrappers had to be especially dexterous; sticky tape wasn't invented until

1930! And it wasn't until 1932 that the rolls of adhesive tape were sold in dispensers

with cutter blades. Before then packages were tied up with string and sealing wax.

In the 20's and 30's small sticky circles were sold in packets along with folded

papers that allowed the wrapper to attach the paper. During this time also, small gift

tags and a type of sticky decorative ribbon were developed, often included in

packets of matching wrapping paper.

Over the years the look of wrapping paper

changed as well. The first wrapping paper was

decorated in the ornate style of the Victorian era,

similar to the Christmas greeting cards that had

become all the rage.

In the 30's and 40's, patterns became more

stylized due to the popularity of Art Deco.

Decorations moved away from nature to symbols

we commonly associate with Christmas today.

Popular patterns included ice skaters, snowflakes, Christmas trees, and candles.

While the symbols remained the same, the artwork became more realistic again in

the 50's and 60's. By the 70's and 80's, Madison Avenue had realized the potential

of wrapping paper and hence, wrapping paper often had movie or TV show tie-ins,

with designs incorporating popular movie or cartoon characters.

Gift wrap was saved from the rationing that many other products were subject to

during World War II. The War Office believed that gift wrap and other Christmas

traditions contributed to raising morale amongst citizens, and also believed that it

encouraged people to send packages to soldiers far from home. Some gift wrap

manufacturers turned to weapon and other wartime production, but the ones that

remained making paper saw business boom. Sales actually increased by more than

twenty percent during the war!

Innovations with gift wrap have continued. The 1980's

introduced decorative plastic and paper gift bags, though

these "new" bags weren't as new as some people

thought. The Victorians had often given their gifts in

decorated bags. The introduction of stick-on bows and

cascade ribbons in the 80's and 90's further helped less

than perfect gift wrappers. Nowadays one can wrap a gift

without even using paper, by going on-line and sending

an e-card wrapped in "virtual paper."

If Santa hadn’t left the present

wrapping until last night , he

might not have got the name

tags mixed up.

A giving church

It’s in giving that we receive. That’s the irony that lies at the heart of the famous

prayer of St Francis of Assisi (see page 19). We have found that at St Chad’s

Church. In fact, over the years St Chad’s has quietly got on with its mission of

reaching out with practical care in the name of Jesus Christ. More recently, new

projects and ways of giving have been developing, relevant to life in 21st Century

Sheffield. Allow me to highlight a few.

Besom

Besom in Sheffield is run out of St

Chad’s, headed up by Steve Winks and

team. It helps people to give - of their

time, money or things. It provides a bridge between those who have and those who

don’t. Referrals are usually from social workers, and every week the Besom Van is

out and about delivering and giving. Besom is a great organisation.

3rd Age

This is a relatively new way of giving to the more elderly members of

the community - often those who are housebound, or feel that people

have forgotten them. From home visiting to providing all sorts of interest

groups (including Over 50’s Club, Art Group, Walking Group and

more), 3rd Age is providing an avenue for people to give to the elderly.

Holiday Project

For a number of years St Chad’s has run a Holiday Project, providing holidays for

those in need who have not been able to go away for some time. It is a great way

to give!

Financial Giving

St Chad’s Church is totally self-financing. It does not receive grants from any

central funds and so is reliant on the giving of those connected with the church. We

trust they get value for money!

Some might ask why the people at St Chad’s choose to give as they do? The

cynics would say it is to earn our way into heaven. Thing is, Jesus said that we can

never earn God’s favour like that. No, we give as a response to God’s love, not to

earn it. Giving as a response is how giving should be. We give as a way of saying

‘Thank you’ - as we are thankful to God for him sending Jesus that very first Christmas,

and we are grateful too for the experience of Christ’s presence and power in

our lives today.

10 ideas for Christmas gifts






You don't have to be extravagant. Small and simple presents can look

wonderful if you take the time and trouble to wrap them beautifully.

Stop and think about the person for whom you're choosing a gift. Does

Auntie really want more ornaments to dust, or would she rather have a basket

of delicious goodies which you've chosen from the supermarket shelves

as a treat?

How about giving a gift which can be savoured long after Christmas? - visit

someone who is housebound and spend some quality time with them. Your

company and the conversation would be appreciated much more than a

box of chocolates or a bunch of flowers sent through the post.

Why not make your own gift? It would certainly be unique and all the more

appreciated because of the time and love which you have put into creating

it.

If you want to spread your gift over a

whole year, you could give a subscription

to a favourite magazine - how

lovely to look forward to a present

being delivered every month. Two big

publishers Emap and IPC do special

offers at Christmas. Check out

www.giftmags.co.uk and

www.greatmagazines.co.uk for ideas.

☺ Run out of ideas? Then check out the many Alternative Gift Catalogues

and bring happiness to people you know - and those you don't!

(see page 18 in this issue)



Have you ever thought of sharing your Christmas Day celebrations with

someone who would otherwise be on their own? Now that really would be

a special gift, the memory of which could last a lifetime!

What about giving a healthy gift? A voucher for a spa experience would

surely please anyone - there would be time to unwind, time to think and

time to decide perhaps to live a more balanced life next year.

All kinds of "experiences" make wonderfully different gifts - theatre tokens, or

a day out somewhere special. How about coming to the Carol Service at St.

Chad's to hear about the true meaning of Christmas, if you've never been

before? Or, if you have, bring someone who hasn't and share the Christmas

message with them?

And what about giving yourself a little present?

Instead of rushing around the

shops, battling through the crowds,

weighed down by heavy parcels - take

time out to relax for a while and re-charge

your batteries. Enjoy a walk in the park, or

take the phone off the hook, sit down with

a cup of tea and enjoy a good book or

listen to some music.

Pam the poppy painter

Pam Marshall has been sharing her passion and love of painting with her students for

over twenty five years, the last seven years from her `little studio' at 33 Cockshutt Road for

both children and adult's in separate classes. She also gives one to one tuition if required.

Her love of flowers and the countryside is only surpassed by her enjoyment of painting

both. Her favourite flower has to be the bold and beautiful poppy. Local scenes are top of

her painting list as well.

She loves to paint in the Botanical gardens, which combines flowers in a beautiful setting.

Recently she was thrilled to win first prize in the still life and flower section of the `Art in the

Gardens' annual show in the Botanical Gardens with her painting of 'Teasels'. She also

finds painting very therapeutic, believing it makes you forget your troubles.

If the weather permits her groups usually manage a few outdoor sessions at Beauchief

Abbey and the beautiful Fanshaw Gate Hall, which is an artists paradise, where Cynthia

and John Ramsden kindly allow them to paint in their glorious gardens.

As an artist as well as a teacher Pam sells prints of her original watercolour paintings of

local scenes as cards at the Greenhill card shop and at Interior design at Millhouses where

they have framed prints of local scenes on

show for sale.

Pam accepts commissions for local

scenes, flowers and pet portraits, usually

working in watercolour but she also paints

in oils and acrylics when the mood takes

her!

A goat for nanny

My little grandson, Edward, gave me a goat last Christmas. What an odd present

you might think considering that (a) I'm not mad about animals, (b) I not

very keen on goats' cheese and (c) I already have a lawn mower.

Even odder is the fact that he was only just two years old at the time! However,

when he was only a month old the Christmas before, I gave him a very unusual

present - immunisation packs for 10 children in Africa. A strange gift you may

think, but he'd already received lots of toys, books and clothes when he was

born. I was so grateful that he was healthy and that soon he would be able to

have the immunisations against childhood diseases which we in this country

take for granted. He really didn't need anything else and so it seemed only

natural to want to show my gratitude by giving children, less fortunate than

himself, the opportunity for a better start in life.

This started me thinking and I was soon shopping on the

World Vision website ( though other charities like

Oxfam and Save The Children run similar schemes).

Let's face it, what do you give to friends who seem to have

everything? It's fun matching the gift to the person, too.

For instance, my husband is very keen on gardening and

we had just visited South America, so I gave him seeds

for a small community in Bolivia to plant - this would

hopefully enable them to grow enough vegetables to be

self-sufficient. The following year when I retired, my

colleagues wanted to buy me a leaving gift - so I told them

about World Vision and the alternative gift catalogue. Imagine my delight when

hens and chicken coops, hives of bees, a herd of goats, fertilizer, seeds, and

fruit trees were given to people in Africa, to help them earn a living and support

their families.

So do please log on to: www.worldvision.org.uk or phone: 0845 600 6445 to

order your free copy of the Alternative Gift Catalogue, and start choosing your

gifts right away. Then this is what happens. The people for whom you are

buying the gift receive a lovely card telling them all about their present - you

know that someone in need is benefiting in a real, practical way - everyone has

a smile on their face - you get a warm glow knowing that you have brought

happiness to lots of people - and think what you'll save by not buying rolls of

Christmas paper! At least Edward didn't have to wrap up my goat!

Prayer of St Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master, grant that

I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console;

to be understood as to understand;

to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

and it is in dying that

we are born to eternal life.

Woodseats HEALING ROOMs

WOODSEATS

HEALING

ROOMS

WAS OPENED ON

WEDNESDAY

SEPTEMBER 13 th

AT THE BIG TREE PUB

It was an exciting moment when we opened the side door at the Big Tree Pub on

Chesterfield Road on September 13 th this was the first session of the Woodseats

Healing Rooms

What is a Healing Room? It is rather like a doctor’s surgery. It is a place where

anyone from the community can come to be prayed for to be made well. Everyone

is welcomed and you don’t need to have a church background.

Who prays with you? We currently have a team of 25 people from 14 churches

around the city working in teams of three. We have been trained by the

“International Healing Rooms Association” based in Spokane, U.S.A.

How much does it cost? There is no charge. We believe that the Gift of Healing

should be free to all.

Why do we do this? All of us on the team believe that it was always the plan of

Jesus that his followers pray for the sick. In the Bible in Luke 10, he sends out 72

ordinary people to go to towns and villages and heal the sick. A major part of

Christ’s work on earth was healing.

The Gospel of Mark 6:55-56 says “They ran through the whole region and carried

the sick on mats to wherever he was. And wherever he went-into villages, towns or

countryside, they placed the sick in the market places. They begged him to let them

touch even the edge of his cloak, and all who touched him were healed.”

When are we open? Wednesday mornings 10-12. Wednesday evenings 7-9

We will be closed for one day only on Wednesday 27 th of December

No appointment is necessary but come early. In the colder weather please use the

main door and go across to the left and up the stairs. Follow the posters.

You will be made welcome and offered a drink whilst you wait. The sessions are

usually about 20 minutes long

The team would recommend the excellent meal facilities at the pub, after your visit.

It’s a wonderful life

One of the things I like about

Christmas is the old films that are on

nearly every year. Films such as The

Great Escape, Mary Poppins or The

Magnificent Seven. The beauty of

them, apart from them having stood

the test of time, is that you can start

watching them half way through and

knowing the story so well can pick it

up as though you had just left the

room for a few minutes and come

back.

It’s just so with my favourite film “It’s a

wonderful life”. It is an old black and

white film but tells a story with universal

appeal. The premise of the story

is that George Baily, played by

James Stuart, is so disappointed with

life that he wishes that he had never

been born. He has not been able to

go to college but had to stay at home

in small town America, has given up

almost everything for the family

business only to see it go bust

because of a mistake on the part of

his uncle.

He decides that life now holds nothing

for him, that he is a total failure

and so he will end it all.

An angel sent to save him, Angel

Second Class Clarence Oddbody –

played by Henry Travers, believes

that the best way to show George

what a difference he has made is to

show him how his town which he

loves so much, Bedford Falls, would

be like without him, as if he had never

been born.

If you know the story you will know

that George runs the Baily Building

and Loan Company which enables

people to buy their own affordable

housing. The enemy of the piece is

Mr Potter. Mr Potter owns the only

other place that people can borrow

money from and at inflated prices at

that. He would love to see the end of

the Building and Loan Company. Clarence

takes him to Bedford Falls as it

would be if he, George, had never

been born and Potter had taken over

the town and renamed it Pottersville.

He introduces George to people who

were his friends and family who were

all a lot worse off because he had

never been born to help them.

It is a great Christmas story because

it tells of hope, of the benefits of a

loving family and friendships and how

we are never alone and that everything

that we do, no matter how small

and insignificant it is, affects everyone.

The world would be a worse

place without you! Believe it.

80 Years Ago

November 1926

MY DEAR FRIENDS,

At this time of year we have usually

to appeal for support for the

Annual Sale of Work, and this year

is no exception to the rule. It is proposed to

have a two-day sale - Thursday 9th and

Saturday 11th December. The Lady

Mayoress will open the Sale on Thursday 9th

December. In view of the tremendous debt

our district owes to Mr & Mrs Graves for the

gift of the noble park, which will become

more and more useful as time passes, there

should be a splendid gathering to meet Mrs

Graves when she opens the Sale.

WE were favoured with good weather for the

Harvest Festival and the Services were well

attended. On Saturday afternoon a band of

workers decorated the Church, making effective

use of the gifts of flowers and fruit etc

which came in freely. On Sunday, the

congregation seemed very pleased with the

decorations. The choir entered into the celebrations

with their usual keenness and the

music was very helpful.

We thank all who helped to make the Festival

a great success; but as one man said to me

“Why can’t we have the same attendance

every Sunday. We have the same choir, the

same service, the same preacher?”

Well, why not?

The Lady Mayoress - Mrs J Graves will

open the Sale on 9th December , and we

would be lacking in gratitude were we to fail

to give her a rousing welcome. The Graves’

Park will be a lasting blessing to this district.

Mrs Graves’ visit to the Sale of Work

gives us a chance to acknowledge our indebtedness.

On 11th December, Children of the Sunday

School will open the Sale. This is a new venture

on our part and I trust that friends will

rally round and make this innovation a great

success.

All our readers are asked to pray for God’s

blessing on the Sunday School which, taking

full advantage of the building of the Memorial

Hall, is beginning the new (Church) year

with a re-organisation. The World Call of

the church is a call to those at home as well

as to an advance in the foreign mission field.

Perhaps these changes in the Sunday School

are part of the response to that call from the

parish of St Chad.

A very successful meeting was held in

Church House on 15th November. Miss

Elms, who has spent 25 years in Nigeria as a

Missionary, gave a most interesting address

revealing how many changes have taken

place in that country in her 25 years

experience.

MY DEAR FRIENDS,

December 1926

My I ask your practical help for the Sale of

Work on 9th and 11th December, and your

prayers on behalf of the Parochial Mission in

February.
