One of the more interesting books to have

hit the physical and virtual shelves this

year is a collection of letters received by

President Barak Obama during his eight

years in the White House. President

Obama was a famously self-disciplined president

who between 5pm and 5.30pm each day would

read ten letters out of the 10,000 received daily.

These were selected for him so that they would be

a cross-section of the American public and would

include criticism as well as thanks. To each letter

he sent a personal, hand-written, response.

The letters are diverse, sad and humorous.

A student wants to tell the president about his

straight-A report, whilst another needs help with his math homework.

A man comes out as gay and wants the president to know, another is

desperate at being unemployed and no longer being able to use his

hands. One letter, from a cancer patient struggling to pay medical fees,

was framed and put up in the corridor leading to the Oval Office in order to

remind the president of his priority in reducing American healthcare costs.

These letters, I suspect, are different to the ones that are received by

the Queen or Theresa May. I’m sure both receive lots of letters but I rather

suspect that our Prime Minister’s post is fi lled with a lot of grumbles, and

letters to the Queen are perhaps more formal. The American President

is a unique role, combining as it does the offi ce of both monarch and

politician. He (and so far, of course, it always has been a “he”) both

transcends the people and yet is clearly of the people. He is held in awe

because of his role as leader of the free world and the embodiment of

America’s hope and identity, and yet because he has been raised from

amongst the people and not born into the role, ordinary citizens feel

that they can write to him, raising their concerns and sharing their joys.

Perhaps this was especially the case with Obama, being, as he was, the

first black president.

Letters to the president are perhaps not unlike prayers to God, and

perhaps our expectation of receiving a reply is no greater than 10 in

10,000. The Christmas story reminds us that the Christian conception

of God, like the American president, also combines both an awesome

divinity and a thorough rootedness in human life, although rather than

a human being raised up to extraordinary heights, the message of the

angels is that God comes down to live as one of us.

Unlike President Obama, God does not devote just 30

minutes a day to answering ten prayers. He has all of

eternity to hear every prayer uttered, every concern

voiced, and every joy shared. At the heart of the

Christmas story is the word ‘Immanuel’ – God with us.

It is because God is with us that we can pray and be

confi dent of being heard. May you be able to share your

hopes and fears with God this Christmas.

Homeless and Rootless

Well it’s that time of year

again when we start

thinking about the nights

closing in, cooking warm

food, wearing warm clothes

and preparing for Christmas. For some

people these are defi nitely not things

that they will be looking forward to and

they are typically our guests at HARC.

We provide the most

vulnerable men and

women in Sheffi eld

with a warm, safe

place with three

hot meals over the

Christmas period

when other projects

and organisations are

closed.

Here’s what our

guests say:

“I was kicked out

(of the family home) a

few days ago and my

wife moved another

man in. I have been

sleeping rough and

really miss my kids.

I’m fi nding things very,

very diffi cult but have

been trying hard to

hold myself together.

I just need someone

to talk to, a friendly ear and some food,

then I can start working out what my next

steps might be. It’s a terrible time of year

for this to happen.”

HARC started in

1989

Its annual running costs are

£25,000

It is open for

9 days

(December 24 - January 1)

450

meals are served each day

There is a food budget of

£6,000

and there are

over 350

volunteers

“I didn’t really want to get involved

with the activity, but when I did I enjoyed

it. I could have a chat and a cup of tea

and make something at the same time

– it took my mind off things for a while.

I gave the card I made to one of the

volunteers to say thank you.”

And our volunteers:

“I’ve certainly learnt how

to improve my bingo calling!

It’s lovely to chat with guests

who you get to know over

the years, but sad to think

that they are still lonely,

vulnerable or homeless and

that their situation has not improved. This

motivates many of us to do more after

the project has fi nished, by supporting

other organisations in the city throughout

the year, not just at Christmas.”

“There is so much that’s enjoyable

about volunteering with HARC. It’s a very

busy time but really enjoyable. It was

only when I stopped at the end of the

shift that I realised how tired I was, but in

a good way. It’s incredibly rewarding and

a great antidote to Christmas excess.”

HARC is run by a volunteer board of

trustees, a part-time project worker and

volunteers working at the project. Most

of the money needed to run the project is

donated by generous people in Sheffi eld

with some coming from small grants.

It’s also the time of year that people

start thinking about volunteering for

this year’s project. If you are interested

please go to the home page on the

website, www.harcsheffi eld.org.uk,

where you will fi nd our application form.

We, as trustees at HARC, would

like to say a big thank you for all the

support that St Chad’s and the people

of Woodseats and Beauchief have given

the project over many years.

Staying Out of Debt at Christmas

People can get into debt for

a whole range of reasons

and at Christians Against

Poverty we are passionate

about helping people who

are struggling with debt. Whatever

your situation, whether or not you

are in debt, Christmas can be a

stressful time for all.

It is so easy to get carried

away with all that is on offer over

Christmas. Your money is being

pulled in all sorts of different

directions: presents, transport,

food, drink, Christmas parties,

cards, decorations, Advent

calendars… and the list goes

on. This year why don’t you stop

before all the Christmas chaos

begins and think about what are

the most important things for you.

To keep from overspending or

ending up in debt this year it is

vital to know where your money

is going. This involves both

budgeting what you are going to

spend and keeping track of what

you actually spend. If possible

start thinking about Christmas

early and setting aside a bit of

money each month.

Planning is also important when

considering which presents to

buy for different people. Going

shopping without an idea of what

you are going to buy for somebody

or what your budget is can

cause panic buying and leads to

spending more than you meant to.

Keeping track of the money you

spend per person can help you to

stay aware of the total money you

are spending on Christmas and

hopefully stop any nasty surprises.

Here are a few ideas to help you

make the most of your money:

• Instead of going out and

buying presents, why not be

creative? Gifts that have been

made are often more special and

have more sentimental value or

perhaps you could invite people for

a meal at your house.

• You could set present

challenges such as encouraging

your friends to consider setting a

monetary limit on the presents they

buy such as £1.

• Also, why not re-gift? This

might sound cheeky but if you

have been given something which

you will not use why not give it to

somebody who will appreciate and

make use of it.

• Alternatively tell people that

you are going to donate the money

you would have spent on gifts to

give to charity instead which takes

some of the pressure off buying for

others.

• Finally if you know that you

won’t be seeing someone until

after Christmas why not buy their

present in the Boxing Day sales?

You could slip a ‘present IOU’ in

their Christmas card. If you were

really organised you could buy

things in the January sales for

next Christmas and get some real

bargains.

This Christmas, rethink the

expectations that you feel.

Consider what Christmas is about

to you and what your priorities

are. Do not feel pressure to

spend more money than you can

afford. There are endless ways to

have a good Christmas this year

without spending a large amount

of money and you will probably

find Christmas is a whole lot more

enjoyable when money is not in

the back of your mind.

If you would like to contact CAP

for advice on managing your

money, call 0800 328 0006.

Tree Treats

The tradition of displaying

and decorating a tree

at Christmas originates

from Europe with records

of trees decorated with

sweets at guild halls in Germany

and Livonia (Latvia and Estonia) in

the 15th century.

Its origins probably go back

even further however with

“paradise trees” decorated with

apples being used in the medieval

mystery plays that told the story

of Adam and Eve that were

performed on December 24 a

possible fore-runner.

Trees or evergreen decorations

used as symbols of eternal life

or protection from evil were also

common in some parts pre-

Christian Europe.

Martin Luther is said to have

been the fi rst to think of putting

lights on Christmas trees. He

added candles to his tree to look

like stars in a forest.

Since 1947, the Christmas tree

in London’s Trafalgar Square has

been an annual gift from the city of

Oslo in Norway.

According to the Forrestry

Commission 90 per cent of British

families put up a Christmas tree

over the festive season.

And the British Christmas Tree

Growers Association says its

members sell eight million real

Christmas trees every year.

The largest ever artifi cial

Christmas tree measured 72.1m

(236ft 6.58 in) tall, and was

made in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on

Christmas Eve 2016.

The tree was built as part of a

three-day carnival in the Gelle

Face Green in Colombo.

Over recent years

TV film adaptions

of books written by

Julia Donaldson have

become commonplace

Christmas Day viewing. In 2009

The Gruffalo was aired, followed

by The Gruffalo’s Child, Room on

the Broom, Stick Man, and The

Highway Rat, with Zog announced

for Christmas 2018. Of all of these,

it is Stick Man that relates

the most to Christmas;

about half of the

book is set at

Christmastime.

Stick Man is

loveable and

helpful and

is constantly

mistaken for,

well, a stick.

He becomes

a stick for a

dog, a Poohstick,

a twig for

a nest, as well as

a multiple purpose

toy for various children.

This separates Stick Man

from ‘his Stick Lady Love and his

stick children three’. The book,

through its excellent illustration

by Axel Scheffler, traces his route

further and further away from the

family tree through the seasons.

As time goes on, the TV film

portrays the sense of loss of the

family left behind in their tree.

The story reaches its climax at

Christmas. Stick Man is ‘lonely…

lost… and covered in frost,’ and is

placed in an unlit fireplace. ‘Can

anyone wake him before it’s too

late?’ Stick Man is awoken by a

‘Stuck Man’ in the chimney, who

turns out to be Santa. Stick Man,

after helping Santa, gets a lift in

Santa’s sleigh to his family tree, to

the delight of his family.

Before Stick Man returns home,

the book reads ‘Stick Lady’s

lonely. The children are sad. It

won’t feel like Christmas without

their Stick Dad.’ Donaldson

expertly picks up on this idea of

family being together at Christmas.

Christmas, it has often been

said, is a time for family. It is at

this time of the year, probably

more than any other annual

occurrence, that

families come

together. It just

will not be

the same if

someone is

not there.

Stick Man

is known by

his family,

they will not

mistake him

for something

or someone

else, and he

finds his place of

belonging in the family

tree. And for many of us,

we find our place in our families.

But, at Christmas, like in Stick

Man, there will be many who are

lonely and lost: those who live

alone, those who have lost a

close loved one, those who are

estranged from their family. The

challenge is there for us to look

out for and care for the ‘Stick

Mans’ of this world: those who are

mistaken for someone else, not

understood, who are lonely and

lost, as well as those who have

lost their ‘Stick Man’. I hope this

is a lesson that my son will learn

as I continue to read the book and

watch the film with him, again and

again and again and again.

Below are three questions

to get you thinking about

Jesus’ birth. According

to the Bible, what are the

answers? Don’t cheat by

reading on!

1. How many wise men came to

visit Jesus?

2. How did the shepherds fi nd

where Jesus was born?

3. How did Joseph and Mary

travel to Bethlehem?

Ok, so here are the answers…

First, the Bible doesn’t say how

many wise men there were.

Secondly, the Bible does say an

angel told the shepherds that

Jesus was born in Bethlehem, but

it doesn’t say the star or angels

guided them onwards. Thirdly,

again, the Bible doesn’t tell us

how Joseph and Mary travelled

to Bethlehem (no donkeys are

mentioned). In fact, in Matthew’s

Gospel, it appears Joseph and

Mary are already in Bethlehem.

So, were there any surprises in

there?

As the answer to the third

question indicates, there are

actually two main accounts of

Jesus’ birth in the Bible. One

is in Matthew’s Gospel, the

other is in Luke’s Gospel. There

are some differences between

the two stories. These include

characters (e.g., Matthew has

wise men, Luke has shepherds)

and geographical movements

(e.g., Matthew has Joseph and

Mary travelling to Egypt, Luke

has them go from Nazareth to

Bethlehem) mentioned by one and

not the other. But also, the way the

stories are told are different (e.g.,

Matthew emphasises Joseph, Luke

emphasises Mary).

However, the two accounts

also have a lot in common. Mary

and Joseph are engaged, and

Mary conceives Jesus by the

Holy Spirit, not by Joseph, who is

descended from King David. An

angel announces the birth of the

child, who is to be called Jesus

and is the Saviour. Jesus, although

born in Bethlehem, grows up in

Nazareth. The events happen

during King Herod’s reign.

So how do we reconcile all this? I

like to think about the two accounts

from Matthew and Luke as two

versions of the same story, but

told from a different perspective,

highlighting different things.

For example, imagine Sheffield

United and Sheffield Wednesday

meet in the FA Cup. Afterwards,

two match reports, one by a

Wednesday fan, the other by a

United fan, are written. These

reports would be very different,

but would also include a large

amount of overlapping detail. They

describe the same event, but read

differently.

Why not have a careful read of

the two stories of Jesus’ birth from

the Bible (the first two chapters of

both Matthew’s and Luke’s Gospel)

and see what

surprises you? This

Christmas let’s

read about

Jesus’ birth

with fresh eyes.

Ingredients:

340g plain flour

4oz softened butter/margarine

100g soft brown sugar

190g golden syrup

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon bicarbonate

of soda

Method:

Preheat the oven to

190 deg C (375F).

In a bowl, beat

together the

sugar and butter/

margarine using

electric beaters until

light and creamy.

Add the golden syrup and

sift in the flour, ginger and

bicarbonate of soda.

Mix until a rough crumb begins to

form then work the mixture into a

smooth dough using your hands.

Refrigerate the dough for 10

minutes or so, until firm.

Then, roll out the dough between

two sheets of cling film/baking

parchment (not a floured surface)

until 4mm (quarter-inch) thick.

Cut out shapes using a cookie

cutter of choice, or roll out

small balls and flatten

slightly onto a nonstick

baking sheet

or baking tray lined

with parchment

paper. They won’t

spread a great deal,

but be careful not to

pack them too tightly

onto the sheets.

Bake for 8-10 minutes

until golden brown. Let

cool on trays for a minute

or two before removing to cool

completely on wire racks.

If you wish to ice your cookies, mix

up a small quantity of icing using an

egg white and 2oz icing sugar.

Christmas Quotes...

“My idea of Christmas,

whether old-fashioned or

modern, is very simple: loving

others. Come to think of it,

why do we have to wait for

Christmas to do that?”

Bob Hope

“I will honour Christmas in

my heart, and try to keep it

all the year.”

Charles

Dickens

“It is Christmas every time

you let God love others

through you.”

“Christmas is built upon

a beautiful and intentional

paradox; that the birth of

the homeless should be

celebrated in every home.”

G.K.

Chesterton

Mother

Teresa

“Christmas won’t be

Christmas without any

presents.”

Louisa

May

Alcott

“Christmas is a day of

meaning and traditions, a

special day spent in the warm

circle of family and friends.”

“Unless we make Christmas

an occasion to share our

blessings, all the snow in

Alaska won’t make it ‘white’.”

Lands where there is no C

In the second book of The

Chronicles of Narnia, the four

children, Lucy, Peter, Susan and

Edmund, walk through a wardrobe

into a magical kingdom, where it is

always winter but never Christmas. Only

when the lion Aslan returns to Narnia is

the festival restored.

On this side of the wardrobe, too, there

are places where it is now winter – but

never Christmas.

One is North Korea, whose citizens

are forced to worship the Kim family, the

ruling dynasty since 1948. Before that,

through the work of missionaries, many

had become Christians. Now, Christianity

is so dangerous that most believers can’t

witness to their own children for fear of

betrayal to the state. In North Korea,

therefore, no one is free to celebrate the

birth of Jesus.

“Christmas is mainly celebrated in

the hearts of Christians,” said a worker

for Open Doors, an organisation that

reaches out to the worldwide persecuted

church. “A meeting usually consists of

only two people, who may sit next to

each other on a park bench. Sometimes,

it’s too dangerous to speak, but knowing

they are both Christians is enough. If a

whole family comes to faith, they can

organise a type of Christmas celebration

– but even then, they must keep it secret

from their neighbours.”

Every year, in the Houses of

Parliament, Open Doors launches the

World Watch List of the 50 countries

where Christians are most persecuted.

North Korea is at the top.

Further down, at number 11, is India,

where churches have been threatened

with dire consequences if they celebrate

the birth of our Saviour.

India is at number 11 on the Open Doors

Just below, at number twelve, is

Saudi Arabia, where crosses, churches

and Christian meetings of any kind

are deemed illegal. Although migrant

workers organising services for their own

communities in non-public places are

usually left alone, there is always the risk

of a police raid, resulting in imprisonment

and forced repatriation.

Christians in Saudi Arabia, therefore,

are not offi cially free to celebrate

Christmas, but migrant Christians living

and working there still manage to gather

in secret for the festival.

One preacher talked about the true

meaning of Christmas. “God wants to

use you. Every day can be Christmas if

you are willing to obey Jesus, when He

says, ‘Therefore go and make disciples

of all nations, baptising them in the name

of the Father and of the Son and of the

Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey

everything I have commanded you.’”

(Matt 28:18-20)

As winter draws to an end in Narnia,

Father Christmas appears and gives

Peter, Susan and Lucy presents – not

toys, but a sword and shield, a bow

and arrows, and a healing cordial and

dagger, to be used in the coming battle

against Aslan’s enemy, who is holding

their brother Edmund captive.

The lion and his forces retake Narnia,

but the last battle is yet to come – in the

Aslan’s counterpart, has yet to return,

September at Beauchief

Abbey was a time of joy

and sadness. Heritage

Open Days was very

popular with nearly 450

visitors to the abbey over the

three days. The abbey was full to

capacity on Sunday for the Choral

Evensong. Special thanks go

to the Abbey Lane Singers and

Rev Stephen Chapman for

bringing the event to a

wonderful musical

close.

On September 4

the Abbey lost a

dear friend and

valued minister,

Rev Professor

John Rogerson.

He was a gifted

scholar and priest

whose ministry

spanned more than

50 years.

Born in 1935, he was

drawn to faith in adult life by the

concept of the Kingdom of God

which he saw as embracing all

aspects of human life and activity.

John belonged to the Broad

Church movement of the Church

of England and was also very

close to the German Lutheran

Church. In his later years,

following ordination in 1964 he

embarked on an academic career

as a lecturer at Durham University.

In 1979 he became Professor

and Head of the Department of

Biblical Studies at the University

of Sheffield retiring in 1996. He

was made an honorary canon of

Sheffield Cathedral in 1982.

During his retirement

John regularly

conducted the

services at

Beauchief Abbey,

led Bible studies

and delivered

his renowned

Lent lectures.

While John was

an academic

of international

reputation with

over 40 books to

his name he could

turn his hand to working

with wood, book-binding, playing

his beloved cello or helping clean

the brassware at the abbey!

During 2017 Heritage Open Days

John delivered a memorable

talk at the abbey (full capacity)

celebrating the 500th anniversary

of the Martin Luther’s reformation.

Above all he was known for his

love and openness to others that

sprang from a deep and living

faith.

John’s latest book The Gift

of Repentance is a collection

of sermons published at

the time of his death by

beauchiefabbeypress.org.uk and

is available from www.lulu.com.

Our thoughts and prayers are

with his wife Rosalind and the

people of Beauchief Abbey.

May he rest in peace and rise in

glory!

Atticus Claw Breaks the Law

by Jennifer Gray

Although classed as a

children’s book this

is a really good read

for adults. Atticus

Claw Breaks the Law

is a very funny story of cats,

malicious magpies and a police

inspector.

It all begins when Atticus, the

cat receives a message asking

him to a meeting in a sleepy

coastal town.

He, being the world’s greatest

cat burglar, is intrigued and sets

off to meet the writer, Jimmy the

Magpie, leader of the local gang,

who wants him to steal all the

jewellery in town which will baffle

the humans.

However when Atticus moves
