Being Together

Friday night - it's the weekend! :)

Just received the latest figures for guests booked into the Real conference - it's now 137 women plus a number of sponsored places plus the Albanian and Polish women - hoorah!
So very exciting to see their names listed - to be able to pray for them now; and to look forward to us all gathering together, believing  without doubt that God will meet with us.

There's something special about a large group of women deliberately choosing to carve out time to be together and to hear from God for their own lives and for those they love. At Real we'll hear God's word unpacked in the most relevant way , we'll worship with no distractions, we'll laugh (a lot - just seen a v funny video which I must try and squeeze into the schedule!) we'll hear powerful stories that make faith rise in our hearts; we may cry, we'll pray, we'll talk (a lot) we'll eat and drink together (lots of lovely goodies coming your way) and we'll just enjoy being.

You'll be loved on, inspired, challenged, moved, - God will be there  - and I believe your encounter of Him will include yes, what we bring you as the "programme" from the platform, but also your time spent in any loo or coffee queues, time perhaps having your hands massaged; or in the prayer zone; or meeting other women in the seats - He is after all interested in the whole of our lives!
It's going to be amazing - can't wait ( and I have now counted the days...it's 49!)

So, you know by now, it's a nice little meal for 2 here tonight, and hopefully time for the Papers and a coffee or two tomorrow before I see you all again on Sunday. Have missed the last two Sunday mornings, so can't wait to be in the House, hearing God's word, worshipping together and meeting people.
Have a great weekend x

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 for myself what had …

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't recommend i…

Paula's Encouragement

I love a podcast!
Podcasts get me through situations where time might drag, or perhaps I've got some time to myself - I'm think a bike work-out at the Gym; a long car journey; or food for my mind and soul whilst I'm cooking.

I've just got back from holiday, and having missed a couple of Sundays, I have caught up with Kerith podcasts, listening to three outstanding preaches from Ben Pocock and Ben Oliver in Bracknell; and Heather Pocock in Sandhurst - I found myself wanting to join in with a few loud "amens" this morning at the gym!

What about you? Let me know when and where do you listen to podcasts?

Our guest contributor today is the wonderful Paula Ridgway - with her large heart , great enthusiasm and infectious faith, she is such a huge blessing to many at Kerith. 
Over to Paula for her encouragement to simply gather a few friends, to listen to a podcast together and then talk about it and see what God is saying. 

"Podcasts are great if one misses out on a …
