EDITORIAL

.

Rightly, in this month's Parish Pump, we dwell on the Easter story (page 12), and in his Rector's Letter (page 5), Harry talks of the hope that Easter can bring to this uncertain world. On page 8, Leftfooter reminds us that while the legacy of Jesus has been fought over for 2000 years, Jesus the man willfully chose torture and a savage death to illustrate `the primacy of love and forgiveness'.

Closer to home (well, not that close!) is the second report from Neville and Olaug on their East African adventure (page 10), and on page 38, our old friend Bill Glazebrook brings us up to date with with his (and Diana's) life in Perth since they left Broadshire. There is a report from David New on how the the Benefice Choir is progressing (page 9).

A touch of controversy: last month, I suggested that the Town country divide might be more a matter of perception than actuality, but Colin Newlands suggests (page 39) that in any event it is of longer standing than we might have realised.

There are pieces on local heritage and history: May Morris's hall in Kelmscott (page 21), and the Chichester triptych in Kencot (page 42).

We hope there is something of interest for all readers, and remind everyone that if you do enjoy Parish Pump, please send us a donation for 2006's issues. (Details on the inside front cover.)

Lastly, something of particular interest to everyone who likes cinema. For a couple of years Filkins has been showing a film on the second Tuesday of every month using portable equipment borrowed from Cotswold District Council. Now, with the generous help of grants from the Leader+ scheme and WODC, Filkins Village Hall has installed a splendid new cinema system.

The monthly films will continue, but there will now be a new dimension - Filkins & District Film Club. Do have a look at the notice on page 44 of this issue, and if you are interested in any aspect of cinema, do come to the inaugural meeting of the new club to be held in the Five Alls Inn, Filkins on Tuesday 4`h April.

The club will be `Filkins & District Film Club', and everyone from any of the villages in the benefice area, and nearby, will be very warmly welcomed.

THE RECTOR'S LETTER

Dear Friends

remember hearing of a man who always thought

he was a failure, so some of his friends sent him on a course in Positive thinking. He came back completely positive that he was a failure! I have heard a number of people recently expressing their gloom about the state of the world today. We live in a beautiful part of the world, but there is much to cause anxiety.

Quite apart from the personal pressures (and all of us

go through times like that the Queen called her `annus horribilis') there all kinds of global threats which make for a general feeling of insecurity. Are we in for another recession? Are house prices about to collapse? Is Iraq going to degenerate into a further Middle East crisis? Will the feared pandemic of Avian Flu arrive? When will terrorists next attack Britain? Is

the Gulf Stream going to change course suddenly and plunge Britain into Arctic winters? Are we gradually descending to a point where violence makes this country unsafe for ordinary people? And so the list goes on.

Some would say that the best response to all this is to adopt an optimistic air and hope for the best. After all there are many positive things to enjoy, and there is no point in focusing on the worst. But it is fascinating, when you look at the New Testament, to find that Jesus was never afraid of facing the realities of a very dysfunctional world.

He spoke of wars, famine, economic crises, natural disasters, and warned his disciples to be prepared for just such eventualities. He made it quite clear that he was not going to be welcomed with open arms by the authorities, and that he was going to be subjected to a humiliating death - and if that is not failure, what is?

In fact there is quite a body of people to this day who regard him as a well­meaning idealist who suffered the consequences of his unrealistic 'turn-the other-cheek' philosophy. In other words it didn't work. It was a failure.

Yet that is precisely where Jesus began, and where he begins today. Someone once said `The greatest hopes of Man are all eventually buried in a graveyard' But for the first Christians, hope began in a graveyard.

As we approach this season of Holy Week and Easter we come face to face with the greatest fear of mankind - that all ends in death and we find that what time and time again seems like failure in fact is the beginning of life.

ARCHDEACON'S VISITATIONS

Every year, the Archdeacon of Oxford holds a formal `Visitation' under Canon G5 of the Canons of the Church of England. These events are held at a number of venues throughout the Archdeaconry, and include the Admission of Churchwardens in compliance with the Churchwardens Measure 2001.

Clergy and other representatives from your parish are invited to attend and support you as you are admitted to office at the Visitation, although they are not required to be present. Visitations this year are as follows:

Date     Time Place       For these deaneries

17th May 7.30pm Wheatley St Mary    Aston & Cuddesdon

22nd May 7.30pm Cowley SS Mary & John    Oxford and Cowley

5th June 7.30pm Henley St Mary          Henley

6th June 7.30pm Heyford Park Chapel Bicester & Islip

7th June 7.30pm Charlbury St Mary the Virgin Witney & Chipping Norton 14th June 7.30pm Deddington SS Peter & Paul            Deddington 22"a June 7.30pm Woodstock St Mary Magdalene Woodstock

An Archdeacon answers directly to his bishop on temporal matters within the jurisdiction of the church. Thus periodic inspection of churches is one of his duties. The current Archdeacon of Oxford is Julian Hubbard (pictured above), who was appointed in May 2005, says he is `not a man who doubts, but one who questions.'

SHILTON BAPTIST CHAPEL

At Shilton Chapel we have just come through, at the end of February, our winter policy of Sunday Meetings at 3.00pm instead of 6.OOpm. This makes things easier for travelling as it is still daylight, particularly if the weather is inclement, and is very much appreciated by those affected.

We are looking forward now to the season of Easter with gardens around bursting into new life reminding the Christian of the resurrection. It's nice to see the first signs - snowdrops, aconites, crocuses, then the forsythia and golden daffodils, so cheering after the dormant days of winter! And warm spring sunshine reminding us of God's great love. Plus the added privilege we have of living in such a beautiful area.

It's good to remember the less fortunate in their circumstances, and some time back we were able at the Chapel to fund a small flock of goats, some blankets and a mid-wife's kit to needy areas, which we trust were a big blessing to the recipients. May God bless us all as we come into the new spring and summer season.

RITES OF SPRING - PART 2

.

Leftfooter continues his look at how the first Easter engages with our modern world.the standards of today's management gurus, Jesus Christ didn't do too well as the founding Head of a major multi­ national concern. On the HR front, things look pretty disastrous. One of his hand-picked twelve betrayed him for ^ paltry sum of money. Another vehemently denied him, more than once. A third doubted him in front of the rest of the team. All but one of the dozen fled and abandoned him to his fate. Something lacking in the people selection department, perhaps? There's worse to come.

That fate was one of the most painful and humiliating available

in first century Palestine, and it was witnessed by, amongst others, the young radical's mother. He died in the company of common criminals, his life achievement mocked in a tart little scroll nailed to the cross over his head. Not a word of what he said appears to have been written down till decades after his death. Thereafter, and into the present, every scrap of his teachings has been debated and disputed. Wars have been fought in his name, atrocities committed. It is not difficult to find those who argue, sometimes vehemently, that the world would have been a better place if Jesus of Nazareth had remained an obscure carpenter's boy, his legacy restricted to stools and stable doors and perhaps the odd, anonymous child of his own.

Such arguments miss the point. Human cruelty, factionalism and capacity for evil on a grand scale predated Jesus, and have certainly survived his brief life on earth. Many of the most savage excesses the world has seen have nothing to do with Christianity. Indeed some have been carried out under regimes determined to purge all traces of religious `superstition': think of Stalin's Russia, Mao's China, Cambodia under the brutal dictatorship of Pol Pot.

So what is the point of the terrible sacrifice embodies so poignantly in this crucifix (above) fashioned out of old newspaper in a Mexican slum? For Christians, the real point comes afterwards, in Resurrection and the hope of redemption for all mankind. But for those who cannot accept the possibility of such a fulfilment, there is still much to ponder. This obscure preacher left the comforts and security of home and family to heal the sick, champion the weak and abandoned, insist, unsentimentally, on the primacy of love and forgiveness. He took on the established powers of his time and walked knowingly into torture and an appalling death, not just to share but to transform the suffering of humanity. Of all the sacrificial rites we have celebrated each Spring, since the dawn of consciousness, surely none is more resonant than this, whatever label we may give to our personal affiliations.
