I

am writing this on March 1 – Ash

Wednesday, St David’s Day and the

fi rst day of spring (meteorologically

speaking – astronomically, the fi rst

day of spring is March 20, which

feels more realistic to me!). Appropriately

enough, along with the snowdrops that

surround the church I have seen my fi rst

daffodil of the year also.

April/May 2017

When Ash Wednesday falls on the fi rst

day of spring (the last occasion was 2006)

it seems particularly appropriate. Shrove

Tuesday – pancake day – will then fall on

the last day of winter with Ash Wednesday,

the day when Christians remember their

humanity and mortality coming on the day

when we also look towards new growth and new hope.

WOODSEATS • SHEFFIELD

For many people Ash Wednesday sums up all that is gloomy about

religion. It is a day of sackcloth and ashes, beating ourselves up and

remembering that we are all going to die – “remember you are dust,

and to dust you will return”. Surely such morbid thoughts belong to

winter and not spring!

I don’t think that I am a particularly gloomy person, yet Ash

Wednesday is one of my favourite days of the year. It is a day on

which I am reminded that my life span is fi nite and that my ambitions,

passions, frustrations and expectations are insignifi cant in the light

of eternity. But I am also reminded that it is precisely because of the

limitations placed on me through my mortality that the power of Easter,

which Lent leads us up to, is so spectacular and unexpected. The

hope of Easter and of our eternal future with God is made stronger by

the knowledge of our own physical and moral frailties.

The First Day of Spring

Spring is a time of new growth after the sleep of winter. The daffodils,

snowdrops and crocuses, bursting as they often do from

the still icy soil remind us of the power of new life. St

Chad’s is also experiencing a new season and new

growth as we have now returned to our new building

after a long time (two winters as it turned out) away.

To observe Ash Wednesday in our new church this

morning was a special occasion but I hope nothing

to match the joy of our Easter celebration here on

Sunday April 16. I hope that you will be able to join

us.

Welcome to the Reshaped S

We are delighted

that after a

year-long

building project,

St Chad’s has

finally re-opened its doors

again.

And reopened is definitely

the right word as the new

West doors to the church

have now reopened as

the main entrance for the

first time in over 80 years.

As you will see from the

photographs, the inside of

the church is lighter and more

spacious. We now have a

dedicated place for the war

memorial and our font has

been beautifully re-sited

and surrounded by coloured

glasswork. A new kitchen will

allow us to serve hot meals

whilst our new parish office

will ensure that the building

can be open for much longer

periods in the day.

The inside of St Chad’s may

look very different but it has

lost none of its tranquility and

peace that so many people

comment upon when they

enter. We hope that many

people from our parish will

find time to be quiet and pray

in the church and in doing so

may find God’s peace.

The new church will be

formally re-opened in the

presence of the Bishop of

Doncaster and Louise Haigh

MP on April 2 at 10am. All

are welcome.

Easter in Six Words

Legend has it that the

American writer Ernest

Hemingway bet ten dollars

that he could write a

complete story in just six

words, and won the bet. As a

newspaperman he was no doubt

adept at getting across a lot of

information in as few words as

possible. Many have since tried

to write their own six-word stories;

some interesting examples

include: “Red. Black.Red.Red.

Black.Millionaire”, and “Married.

Till fatness do us part” and “I went

travelling, found my home”.

Could you write your own sixword

story? It’s not as easy as

you might think. What if you were

asked to write the greatest story

ever told? One writer has tried to

tell the story of the Holy Bible, but

in 50 words instead of six:“God

made, Adam bit, Noah arked,

Abraham split, Joseph ruled,

Jacob fooled, bush talked, Moses

balked, Pharaoh plagued, people

walked, sea divided, tablets

guided, promise landed, Saul

freaked, David peeked, prophets

warned, Jesus born, God walked,

love talked, anger crucified, hope

died, Love rose, Spirit flamed,

Word spread, God remained.”

If we take just six of these

50 words we

might be able

to describe

Christmas,

the time we

celebrate the

birth of Jesus

Christ: “Jesus

born, God

walked, love

talked”. I wonder

if the next six

words help to

describe the

Easter events: “Anger crucified,

hope died, Love rose”.

These last six words seem to

contain some deep emotions and

feelings: firstly anger – is this

something that you have been

feeling recently? Perhaps anger

at an injustice, or at some of the

tragic recent events in the Middle

East, or even just a feeling that

life has been unfair to you. Next

is dying hope; perhaps the future

seems bleak; you may have lost a

job recently or suffered loss, and if

so then no-one would blame you

for feeling this way. But the last

two words are perhaps the most

important of all: Love rose.

Throughout the coming

Easter season Christians in

S8 and throughout the world

will be remembering the first

Easter events, culminating with

celebrations on Easter Sunday

when we give thanks that Love

did indeed rise and gives us

hope and the opportunity for a

fresh start with God, a new life,

a new beginning. Perhaps this

Easter you might like to join one

of the many services in your local

church? Perhaps this spring might

be the time for you to write a

whole new story …

Sadly the time has come

for me to write my fi nal

article for Impact. I’ve

been appointed the

Associate Vicar at St

Andrew’s Church in Leyland up

in Lancashire, so we’re leaving

St Chad’s at Easter time.

We’re really sad to be leaving

the St Chad’s church family and

Woodseats, and will take with

us many friendships and fond

memories of our time here.

So what’s been our highlight

of the last three years? I think

we have to say it’s all the

different people whom we’ve

met. We’ve loved getting to

know so many different folk

here in Woodseats.

Perhaps you’re a regular at St

Chad’s. Thank you so much for

welcoming us into

your homes and

sharing your lives.

It’s been a real

delight to worship

God together, to

preach God’s Word

and to celebrate

Holy Communion

with you all.

Perhaps you’re

not a regular at St

Chad’s, but you’ve

been exploring

what you believe

and have come

on one of our

Christianity

Explored or

Life Explored

courses. I’ve

loved our

discussions

and refl ections

as we’ve explored together

who Jesus was, why he came

and what it means to follow

him. These courses are set to

continue at St Chad’s after I’ve

gone, so if you’ve seen them

and been interested but never

come along, do get in touch with

the church offi ce to hear about

the next course.

Perhaps we’ve met through a

baptism, a wedding or a funeral.

It’s been a delight to be involved

with your families as you’ve

marked signifi cant life events in

this way.

Or perhaps on a school visit

– I’ve loved my time interacting

with the children!

Or perhaps you’ve only read

a couple of my articles here in

Impact. Hope you’ve enjoyed

them!

Growing Food Can Take

Im

The glory of gardening: hands in

the dirt, head in the sun, heart

with nature. To nurture a garden

is to feed not just on the body,

but the soul – Alfred Austin.

One of the attributes that humans

have more than any other species is

our ability to plan ahead. We are good

at looking back and considering the

present and then extrapolating that into

the future. We know what happened

last year and can make a good guess at

what will happen this year. I say ‘make

a guess’ because there will be variables

in the weather and the amount of time

we have at each critical point in the

season which will affect the outcome,

but generally we can predict what will

happen

As I write this it is the middle of

February, temperatures are hovering

around freezing and the days are

either sunny and dry or cold and damp

depending on which weather front is

influencing us at the moment. However

in order to write this article I have to be

able to remember past

years and

imagine what my allotment will look like

in five or six months time.

Currently a lot of the seeds which will

be cabbages, French beans and leeks,

forming part of a future Sunday

dinner are still sitting on the

display stand at whatever

garden centre I am going to

favour this year.

Because we have

marestail – a very

pernicious weed, which

can only be controlled

organically by digging – we

don’t have any permanent

vegetable beds but recreate

them each year. I can imagine

what the allotment will look like in

a few months time but at the moment it

is lying fallow, covered in manure, ready

for the new season.

Fast forward a few weeks and as you

read this the ground will be laid out in

beds with paths in between, but most

will have very little in them. At this time

of year most plants, if they exist at

all, are just seedlings in the

greenhouse waiting

for that burst of

sunshine and

Imagination

higher temperatures which spur them on

to vigorous growth.

It is great to plan for the good times

but also in the allotment not everything

is ‘rosy’ - we aren’t the only

consumer of our vegetables.

There is always something

that will try and eat our

crop or use them as a

‘host’. Most brassicas

need covering with nets to

protect them from pigeons,

mice and other things with

a penchant for the leafy

vegetables. On top of that

there are other insects such

as butterflies which use them

as hosts to provide nourishment for

their young when they hatch. The latest

suspect is an insect called Allium Leaf

Miner which attacks vegetables of the

allium family such as leeks, onions and

the like. The insect lays its eggs near

the plant and then when they hatch they

wriggle to the plant and eat their way

into it. They then lie there until it’s time to

emerge and then the process begins all

over again. It seems the insect is here to

stay because there is no treatment at the

moment so the only solution is to cover

the plants with very fine nets.

In order to enjoy gardening we need

to be able to plan for the problems and

issues which will arise whilst holding in

mind the memory of the fresh vegetables

that we eat all year. The highlights will

be the roast parsnips and sprouts which

grace our Christmas dinner as well as

the jams and chutneys which will be

sitting on the cellar head ready to be

used throughout the year or shared with

family and friends.

Memories of Springtime T

The origin of most springtime

traditions are lost in the mists

of time. No-one knows for

certain when or where the

practice of well dressing

began, or why, with a few exceptions,

it is local to the Peak District. Wells

and springs have been regarded as

sacred since mankind first walked the

earth and worship of their deities is far

older than Christianity. Water deities

were female and local people would

probably have brought spring flowers

as an offering of thanks for pure, clean

water. The goddess of many wells was

called Danu or Annu and, in Christian

times, her name became Ann or Anna;

so the goddess became St. Ann –

mother of the Virgin Mary – which is

why so many wells are dedicated to St.

Ann.

Some historians believe the practice

of blessing and making religious

pictures with flower petals and

greenery began with the outbreak

of the plague, and this is probably

true of Eyam, known as the Plague

Village. The increase in popularity

of the ceremony in the 19th century

may have been due to outbreaks of

cholera or, as in the case of Malvern

in Worcestershire, to the popularity

of the ‘Water Cure’. Originally the

ceremony took place on Ascension

Day but nowadays it is usually Spring

Bank Holiday, which brings welcome

revenue from the tourist trade.

Another springtime custom with lost

origins is maypole dancing. This was

probably a pagan ceremony, paying

tribute to special trees and tying

ribbons around the trunks. Maypole

dancing must have been common

before the Civil War because Oliver

Cromwell tried his best to wipe out

every trace of it, calling it wicked and

idolatrous. He did not succeed but it

reappeared with a vengeance after

the Restoration, remaining common

on village greens and in primary

schools until around the 1970s.

Many of us still remember the tunes

and steps of the dances after many

decades. It was great fun but the pole

was quite unstable and used to rock

alarmingly. This may be one reason

why the tradition has almost died out.

Apparently, at one Sheffield school, the

naughty boys had to sit on the base to

stabilise it, while the good children did

the dancing.

Crowning the Queen of the May

is another ancient tradition which

Traditions

has been Christianised, mainly

by the Non-Conformist churches,

particularly Methodists. The

ceremony used to take place on

Whit Monday but the queen was

usually crowned on Sunday in

church. The Whit Monday ceremony

lasted all day with some churches

gathering at 6am so that they could

sing at the local hospital before

processing to the park for the ‘Whit

Sing’. This festival seems to have

been local to the Sheffi eld area and

probably owed its popularity to Henry

Coward (1849-1944) a Sheffi eld

choral conductor. The queen and

her attendants led the procession

behind the banner with its silken

ropes and tassels, followed by the

band and then everyone else. As

they marched, other Sunday schools

joined the line until the procession

seemed to stretch for miles.

After the queens were presented

in the park, the singing began –

several thousand voices all praising

God together. The ‘Sing’ was usually

followed by sports on the fi eld – egg

and spoon and sack races, etc. Then

came the Sunday school tea with

ham sandwiches, jelly and Carnation

Milk, after which everyone went

home, tired but happy.

Sadly, most spring traditions (apart

from well dressings) have now died

out, yet they live on in the memories

of Sheffi elders over a certain age

and still, in our hearts, we sing the

old, well-loved hymns and, no doubt,

will do so to the end of our days.

Did You Know?

1

Spring can actually begin at

different times! Meteorologists

say it begins on March 1

and ends on May 31, whilst the

astronomical calendar has the

fi rst day of spring marked as

March 20.

2

Birds are born

with the ability

to sing, but

it takes them up

to two months to

learn the specifi c

song of their own

species.

3

Our sense of

smell is more

acute in the spring, due to

there being more moisture in the

air.

4

Children grow faster in the

spring that at any other time

of the year.

5

Springtime is the most

popular time to sell or buy a

house, and they are generally

bought and sold quicker then than

during any other season – and for

a higher price, too.

6

Honeybees are more

likely to swarm in the

spring.

7

People can experience

‘spring fever’ – it

may not be an

actual medical term but

both psychological and

physiological changes in

the body lead to feelings of

restlessness and daydreaming.

Scientists believe the increased

light, rise in air temperature and

the fact that we feel the need to

exercise and discard our winter

woolies, all help to infl uence our

hormone levels.

What pieces of

music are on your

personal playlist for

springtime? What

are the emotions

that music for spring needs to

evoke?

Is it that sudden feeling of joy -

‘The Spring, clad all in gladness,

doth laugh at winter’s sadness’,

as one of Thomas Morley’s

madrigals puts it? Just stepping

out on a spring morning can

have you eager to ‘Come, see,

where golden hearted spring

rides, crowned, like a care free

king’ – a number from Handel’s

opera ‘Berenice’, which arranged

for choir, many of us must have

sung at school. And singing these

songs, whether out loud or in our

head, makes us feel more part of

the spring scene, more aware of

the beauty of the world around us

at this time of year. We too may

want to don bright robes like the

spring flowers, ‘for joy to greet the

sun’.

There are songs too that help

us to celebrate the sense spring

gives us of new beginnings, and

of romance in the air – who can

resist the heady triumph of rhyme

over grammar in ‘You make me

feel so young, You make me feel

so Spring has Sprung’? Going

back to Morley, ‘It was a Lover and

his Lass’, proclaims confidently

that ‘Sweet lovers love the spring’.

But a third song changes the

simple mood somewhat – ‘April is

in my mistress’ face....but in her

heart a cold December’.

So what music would we

choose to listen to when the

immediate euphoria of ‘hey ding

a ding’ and ‘picking up lots of

forget-me-nots’ has worn off a bit?

Maybe, as the light fades on a

spring evening, you could relax to

Nina Simone asking, through the

Rodgers and Hart song – ‘Spring

is here, Why doesn’t my heart

go dancing? Why isn’t the waltz

entrancing?’ Or Ella Fitzgerald

feeling ‘So gay in a melancholy

way, that it might as well be

spring’.

A folksong that has been

compared to a sunny day that

clouds over is ‘In the Springtime of

the Year’. We meet a young sailor

and his lover singing together in

the ‘lovely spring’, but then learn

that the youth has to go to war

amid the ‘blund’ring cannons’

roar’. So we are reminded how

fragile young lives and young love

can be, just like the delicate spring

blossom. ‘Fading and fleeting’,

as another folksong, Bohemian

in origin, taken to Silesia by

refugees, puts it. But this song

(Fairest Lord Jesus) also points to

the hope that can be found in him

who can ‘make the saddest heart

to sing’.

2 Sift the flour, baking powder,

milk and beat again until smooth and

thoroughly combined. Divide the mixture

spread level with either a palette knife

We Are All Made of Glue by

Marina Lewycka

This is the third book

written by Marina

Lewycka who lives in

Sheffi eld, her fi rst novel a

Short History of Tractors

in Ukranian was short-listed and

won several literary

prizes.

The main

character of the

story is Georgie

Sinclair, a freelance

writer for adhesive

publications, hence

the title of the book.

Her husband,

Rip, has recently

walked out on

her and their

teenage son, and

she is trying to

get her life back

on track. She is

clearing out the

past, literally, by

fi lling a skip with

Rip’s belongings.

Along comes Mrs Naomi

Shapiro, an elderly, eccentric

Jewish lady, who delights in

bargains be it food on the reduced

aisle in Sainsburys or classical

Russian vinyls in Georgie’s skip.

A friendship begins and Georgie

is invited round to Mrs Shapiro’s

home, a large but cluttered, dirty

and dilapidated house shared

with numerous cats. Mrs Shapiro

takes it upon herself to offer

advice and practical assistance

to help Georgie fi nd a new man.

The two women are drawn closer

when Mrs Shapiro falls and is

taken to hospital naming Georgie

as her next of kin.

The story focuses on Georgie’s

attempts to help Mrs Shapiro

return home after being placed

in a care home. Brought into

the story are two social workers,

one with dubious motives; estate

agents attempting to swindle Mrs

Shapiro and a team of repairmen,

Mr Ali, a Palestinian and ‘the

Uselesses’. There are many Brian

Rix–type farcical moments as

the mix of cats,

handymen and

others come

together.

Alongside the

amusing there is

also the serious

as Ms Lewycka

touches on the

subject of the

Palestine/Israeli

issue, care

for the elderly

and teenage

problems. There

are other threads

running through

the novel, the

references to

adhesives, the

antics of the cats,

the secret past of Mrs Shapiro

and her husband and the vengeful

Georgie.

I found this a brilliant easy read,

very amusing and thoughtful

too. I particularly enjoyed the

character of Mrs Shapiro – an

elderly fl irty lady with high heels,

rouge and an amusing accent;
