Kilimanjaro trek 2017 for Christie’s PBT The UK’s first Proton Beam Therapy Centre is under construction at The Christie, Manchester. It is the single biggest breakthough in the treatment of cancer, especially in young children in recent decades.

Our son, Kel, is a Senior Electrical Engineer on this project and will spend his 33rd birthday climbing!  Any donations would be most welcome. There will be a Sponsor Form in church or you can make an online donation/ see further information about this project at kilimanjaro2017.com  Many thanks in advance! Lynne Ross

From the Chester Diocese Cycle of Prayer: Harvest A few years ago the British Nutrition Foundation published the results of survey they had conducted amongst children at school. It disclosed that nearly a third of primary school children in the UK then thought that cheese comes from plants; one in ten secondary school children believed that tomatoes grow underground; and one in five primary school children said that fish fingers were made of chicken.

Before adults get too indignant, remember that many were convinced by a spoof TV report on Panorama (April 1st 1957) concerning the spaghetti harvest in southern Switzerland. (A three-minute report about the harvesting of spaghetti from trees festooned with pasta) BBC was contacted by many viewers asking how they could cultivate a spaghetti tree!

Consumerism, marketing and mass consumption make for some distancing between the food we consume and the realities of its production and growth. Foody fashions and a new concern for the environment only go so far in re-establishing a connection between what we eat and where it comes from. In thanking God for the harvest we seek to honour what this good earth produces, the labour of those who grow what we eat, and our fundamental relatedness to the earth on which God has placed us. In this the Bible’s origin in an agrarian society calls us back to a proper acknowledgement of our own place in creation.

Pray for all food producers – for just reward for their labours and respect for their endeavours.

Pray for Bishop Leopold Frade, Southeast Florida; Bishop Peter David Eaton,
