Inspire Ladies Day

Just a quick entry to remind you that tomorrow is the Inspire Regional Ladies day at Camberley hosted by the Beacon Church. 305 women are expected, but they still have a few places available - just turn up with £10 and a packed lunch! A few of us from Kerith are going...so if you're interested, get in touch either personally or through the Kerith reception (01344 862699).
I'm really looking forward to a day with friends. Bev is a great woman - sparkly eyes, full of faith and fun! She will lead us well tomorrow. Our friend Liz Green from Reading is also speaking. She is a great friend of mine. A holy, faith-filled woman, she challenges me to live wholeheartedly for God.
I've been thinking about Real 2011..beginning to plan and dream for next year's conference. There's something special about choosing to set aside a day. A day out of our generally busy, active days and weeks. A day to spend with other women, to worship, to hear from other godly women. It's about clearing a space in our week, our heart, our head. Clearing a space so that we can hear God.
As you look ahead to 2011, what would you like to do? Where would you like to go? Do you have any conferences you'd love to attend? Have you ever thought of a day and night away on a personal retreat? I've found that I can do some of those things if I start to think about them early enough, and if I plan it and get the dates in the diary.
We'll be starting to talk about Real 2011 soon - so in the next few weeks, when you buy a new diary or calendar, please write REAL against 1st and 2nd July - you won't regret it! And then take a look around and see what else you'd like to do - things that will do you good and help you to grow.

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

Clare's Macedonia reflections

You'll remember that in Ma y I went to Macedonia?  I took a team of wonderful Kerith women, and together we supported Marija Vuletic as she led  the Vredna Conference in Skopje (the capital city) Macedonia. It was such a rich time (challenging too at times!)  we gave, but  we also received so much. It was a real privilege to stand alongside these wonderful women - our sisters in Christ. Here are Clare's reflections of our time together. Spending time with the women in Macedonia spoke to me so much about our world-wide family in faith. God really is bringing people from every people group into relationship with Him! We were joined by women from Serbia and the Roma community. I think joy in hardship sums up what many of the women are experiencing right now. Some have only been believers for a very short time, but their joy in belonging to Jesus and being on a journey with Him was so clear. I spent time talking to some of the youngest women at the conference. A few of
