Advent Journey at Stratton
The Revd Jan Moore dedicates the advent figures as they set out from home to home heading towards Christmas Day. Would you like to be a part of the Advent Journey? As many readers will be aware, Stratton is fortunate to have a beautiful set of figures of Mary, Joseph and their donkey made for us by Chris and Ron Rodgers and, every Advent, they travel around homes and local organisations. This year we are planning to continue this much-loved tradition with the figures setting out on Advent Sunday from the Benefice Service at Rendcomb and returning to St Peter’s, Stratton, on Christmas Eve.   As a host, you will welcome the figures into your home. After a rest of a few days, you become the traveller taking Mary and Joseph with the donkey, onto the next host. Everyone is very welcome to join in, and we will be taking and recommending certain precautions to make this a Covid-safe journey for all those taking part! I will co-ordinate the journey - facilitating the safe transfer of the family between households and other places they will be resting. If you would like to be a part of the 2020 journey please let me have your name by 15th November, to give us enough time to make a good journey plan. Thank you all very much.

Making the most of self-isolation
Bishop Barron (Roman Catholic) offers some great advice starting with a quote from Blaise Pascal who once said, “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.” This Pascalian “mot” has come to my mind a good deal in recent days as our entire country goes into shutdown mode due to the coronavirus. Perhaps we could all think of this time of semi-quarantine as an invitation to some monastic introspection, some serious confrontation with the questions that matter—some purposeful sitting alone in a room.

Elkstone composting toilet
With the increased use of Cotswold parish churches for concerts and other community events, one of the problems frequently encountered is absence of any toilet facilities. These are difficult to provide because of the huge expense involved in connecting to mains water, electricity and sewage. Elkstone parish church has recently overcome these problems by housing an eco-loo inside an oak timber building in our churchyard (GL53 9PD). We have chosen to build in “green oak” which means the eco-loo should still be standing for hundreds of years and still keeping an attractive natural appearance. The eco-loo itself was sourced from Finland and enables liquid waste to be mixed with water and used as a fertiliser for flowers and shrubs. The non-liquid waste is mixed in the toilet with other compostable materials for use as a general-purpose garden fertiliser.
