I Just Did Something For The First Time!

I Just did something for the First Time!
I took part in a "Virtual Community Group" of Pastors' wives and women leaders around Europe. We were all sat in our homes in front of our computers with headphones and webcams. Katie in Athens, Greece; Laurie in Monmouth,Wales; Melissa soon to be in Greece, but presently in Seattle USA; and Rachel in Florida, hoping soon to be in Ireland! It was FUN! Of course there were the small time delays, but that was ok as we at first all talked at once, and then all smiled together and paused! So we are going to be "meeting" monthly to encourage and support one another in our various lives and roles. In the meantime, we'll get to know one another through facebook and blogs and we'll pray for one another. Great to be able to support eachother like this - and great to see what God is doing all over the world. I take my hat off to these girls, who are pioneering in new countries and cultures - all for God's kingdom.

My current "on repeat" song whilst I'm working at the computer is "Mercy" - love love love it! We sang it at Word and Worship, and also used it last Sunday in the baptism video .
Enjoy x

So good to hear you're embarking on this journey of encouragement Catrina. I know you will be a blessing to the other girls and hope and pray that they continue to encourage and build you up in all you do.
What a wonder the 21st century is with all this technology to hand. How blessed we are to be able to communicate in so many different ways

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 …
