Fix Your Eyes on Jesus


What a great day in Church yesterday!
Simon finished the Old Testament series with a wonderful sermon based on Hebrews 11 and 12. Those godly characters that we've met in the Old Testament are "cheering us on from the stands" as we run the race, fixing our eyes on Jesus.

Hebrews 12    1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

If you missed it, or would like to hear it again, listen here on the Kerith website.

We are taking a family holiday this week (sunshine, please Lord on the south coast!) and so looking forward to spending time relaxing together.
I won't be blogging for a while, so just wanted to signpost you to some great online resources.

As many of you know, we are thrilled that Shauna Niequist will be joining us for Real 12 next June. Take a read of  her blog - read right to the end for our name check!

Thank you Penny for this great recommendation! What a rich resource"Coffee with Chris Caine" is! "The program is hosted by Christine Caine and consists of candid in-studio recordings, audio blogs from the road and spontaneous guest interviews from around the world (or around the house)".   Coffee with Chris Caine 

There's a great new album from Hillsong Live, and I love the title track - it's faith-building and truth-proclaiming     God Is Able 

Whilst we wait for more CDs to be delivered (the first 1000 have all gone hoorah!) you can download and listen to Magnanimous here.

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow Jesus...no turning back.Take a listen to this beautiful song from Hillsong - every time I hear these words and sing along it changes my perspective, turns me around, gets my focus off me and onto Jesus - "Christ Is Enough For Me". ...No turning back, I've been set free...Christ is enough for me.

Discover your Worth, your Strength, your Purpose

Following a successful Kerith launch in the Spring, Sarah Farley and her team are ready to go again,leading their 2nd SHINE course.
SHINE is an eight week self esteem course for women. The evenings are a mixture of Talks and discussion time, with a practical approach to learning. It's a really encouraging environment, and the evenings are a lot of fun. The course starts this Tuesday evening, and there are still some spaces available.Here's your personal invite from Sarah!Shine is about to run again and I'm excited to see what God is going to do this time round. If you haven't already heard, Shine is a course designed for women who want to live their life in abundance, the way God designed them to live it. To recognise all their worth, to grow in self-esteem, to see all their strengths and positives and ultimately live a life of purpose.We've still got a few places left so if you're interested there's more information here on the Kerith website, where you can…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
