You Will Find Rest For Your Souls

"Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light"                                                                                                       Matthew 11:26-28

How are you getting on, in applying the "Doing Life Well" teaching that Simon's been bringing us on Sundays at Kerith?  There are  definitely challenges in us getting rest and creating sabbath, whatever stage of life we're at.
As Simon said: "Planning + Effort + Discipline are all needed for living an effective, well managed life"
Elizabeth and Melita are two great women in our Kerith community. They have got together to plan some free, local Retreat days for women.
Here's your invitation from them (all you have to do is book in and show up!):
"I know so often as women we simply feel guilty if we’re not doing something. God has built into us the need to take time out –so why not give yourself permission to STOP- and book yourself into one of the up and coming dates at Fourteen?
OCTOBER 11th   (tomorrow),   OCTOBER 18th,    NOVEMBER 8th,    -NOVEMBER 15th

How does snuggling up in a cosy armchair , an invigorating walk and a log fire sound? Lunch will be provided and the aim is for everyone to enjoy a relaxed day free from the pressures of everyday life- space for you.
Book by contacting Elizabeth Pudner on 0118 9790099 or 0798 1756828                                                 Or email  elizabethpudner@hotmail .com    or    melitacullis@btinternet.com
We are really looking forward to welcoming you –why not encourage a friend to come!
Thanks to those who have already booked!"

"Rest is a gift - it says we trust God"

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…

Our Living Hope

Not sure what happens with my blog...or me writing my blog! Can't believe I've been away from it for almost two months. Oh well, no condemnation! Let's pick it up and start again :)
Yesterday was a great day in Church! I was so challenged and encouraged - I love Sundays and all the different ways God shows His love and who he is to us. Natalie Jones preached at both our morning meetings in Bracknell , she gave such a good message on generosity, be sure to catch it when the podcast comes on our website, but for now, watch a summary of Natalie's preach
At the 6pm meeting, we had Paul Manwaring sharing about culture : the 4 Gamechangers - again, a really challenging message to check out if you didn't get to hear it live.

I wore my HOPE earrings yesterday - sometimes I deliberately choose to wear them as a practical symbol that I am choosing HOPE - that I choose Jesus, I choose trust, I choose hope.
I'm so glad I did, as throughout the day I felt God speak to me about …
