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 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 …
