What Are You Doing to Feed Yourself?

My Talk from the Unique Simply Word and Worship evening is now up on the Kerith website -You can listen here
One aspect of the evening was an encouragement for us to be feeding ourselves spiritually - giving the Bible "plenty of room in our lives". As part of this, I interviewed Sandra Austin, who talked about the Morph group that she is part of. She has written about Morph in some more detail on her blog, I think you'll be really interested to read more, so check it out here. I also interviewed Henriette, who told us about the group of young women she is a part of, who meet every Friday morning to delve a bit deeper into the Bible together.
Both these women challenged us to "do something" - so it made me wonder - what things are you doing / going to do to feed yourself?


My absolute priority commitment of time and money this year is to the Real Conference (of course!)
1st and 2nd July, £23 if booked before 1st May , with Speakers: Me (!) Rachel Hickson and  Liz Green. I'd love you to be there too! You can book here


One thing I'm also planning to do is go to the Hillsong Colour Conference in May. There's always cost involved - time, money and prioritising - but "choosing is one of the most spiritual things we do" (E McManus) and I want to make good choices that will bless my life and those around me! More about Colour and other great Conference recommendations next time!

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 …
