Starting Again in Twenty Ten

Ok I'm starting blogging again - didn't really intend to stop, just seemed to stop in December - does anyone else find that from this side of Christmas it's hard to remember what was consuming all our time and energy in the run up to that big event?!
So, another snowy day - all radiators dripping with wet socks and gloves; all children off school, so all have friends over to play and sleep. Simon and I spent a couple of hours in the snow digging out the cars earlier - fun actually. Unfortunately the 2CV didn't reward all our hard work by actually starting, but it was fun trying! I finally reaslised just how great those snow shovels are - we borrowed our neighbour's one - so at the next opportunity we're going to buy our own...and then it will never ever snow again in Bracknell!

With the extended holiday, it's been hard getting my brain into gear for 2010 plans, but I know you'll be excited that we're getting on with planning the July 3rd Conference (write it in your diary now!) and also the Unique event on March 6th (fun!). All the Unique ministries are gathering speed again -
- Did you know that Unique has a writing group that is called Exposition?
If you are interested in joining the group why not come along to a poetry workshop that is running on 30th January led by Val Taylor. Click here for more information. 
To find out more about the group and the writing day, contact Jacqui Webber-Gant on
01344 484181 or Karen Mehta on 01344 752667.
Exposition meets once a month inthe Kerith Centre lounge on the 3rd Friday of the month
Exposition is for all women who want to write, it's for anyone who would like to learn from others and is willing to try something new.
Need an inspiring nudge to come and explore this group?...
"Spoken words are like mists that vanish as memories fade, whereas the written word has a life that remains. Words can inform, captivate, inspire, amuse, challenge, take us on journeys through history and culture. Words can weave imaginary tales of impossible feats or capture an emotion through metaphor or verse."

Guest Blog: Esther in Indonesia

I'm delighted to welcome Esther Ross-Watson to my Blog today! She is a dearly loved member of our Kerith family. She and her late husband Michael served as missionaries for many years. Esther bravely made the decision to travel again, and she has recently returned from Indonesia. Here's her story:  Whilst Michael was on his last days on earth in August 2017 he received a request from the Island of Madura, Indonesia asking us to return to the town of Pamekasen, Madura, Indonesia where we had begun our Missions work in July 1973 exactly one year after we were married. They were keen to have us see what God had been doing in the years since we’d moved on and we excitedly said ‘Yes’ we will come!   Obviously that had to go on hold for a while because I didn’t feel I could, or even wanted to go alone! Anyway around March/April time 2018, I begun to feel a gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit urging me to think some more about it! It was like a feeling of wanting to know

3 Little Bottles

Thought I'd mix it up today and do something lighthearted here. I popped into town this morning (as an aside, anyone else still incredulous that "new Bracknell / The Lexicon is so great and that it's really here to stay?!)  Anyhow, I popped into town for a quick wander and bought 3 "essentials" I'd run out of, so I thought I'd share them with you - and of course I'd love to hear about your 3 recent essential purchases. 1 Contact lense solution I've worn glasses since Secondary school, and contact lenses since I left Uni. Gas permeables - great for me - slightly perilous in swimming pools / the sea / other people's sinks (£80 to replace). They work for me - and so a couple of bottles of solution each month keep me going.I ran out a couple of days ago, so it was £4.70 well spent for clean lenses and clear eyesight. 2. "Buffet" by The Ordinary This was a new one for me, a present I received last Christmas. I LOVE it and can

Meeting my Hero

Yesterday, I met one of my heroes! Bobbie Houston of Hillsong is a beautiful woman! I love her teachings, her godly wisdom, her self deprecating humour. I love the way she leads the whole Colour conference and Sisterhood movement. I listen to her podcasts and read her articles and books. Here at the Global Leadership Summit in Willow Creek,Chicago, her husband Brian gave the most extraordinary, vulnerable and honest responses to Bill Hybel's interview ( notes here) He was signing books at the end of the break and as I turned a corner, there she was! Not being mobbed by fans, but just chatting with a couple of people. Not sure if many of you realise this, but I'm actually an introvert, and quite shy. No really, I am! There's no way I would confidently walk up to someone I admire and begin a conversation! So I walked away. But as I was walking, I thought about how much I'd regret not being brave enough to say Hi..or to thank her for her
