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"

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…

Not the Summer I'd Planned

"Life's detours means  God wants you to run right into His arms  so He can reconstruct your heart"  Ann Voskamp
Well, let's just say that it's not been the summer I thought I was going to have!!! 
I'm so grateful we had our relaxing holiday in the sunshine
I'm so grateful it's summer time, and therefore not so many work commitments
I'm so grateful for my family being around
I'm so grateful for a wonderful and kind church family

If I was going to have an accident ...to slip over on the back door mat....in my wedges...feeding the dogs.. and dislocate and fracture my ankle...then I'm so glad I was at home with family around and with access to swift expert medical help.

The accident was so sudden and it was immediately obvious that I couldn't sort it on my own! I'm pretty squeamish so I'll save you the details, but the angle of my foot prompted me to say out loud "I've just done something really bad".

Funny isn't it, when yo…
