Tell Your Story

Last Sunday we marked Remembrance Sunday and celebrated Baptisms in a 3:30 Sunday. With Helen Cottee preaching at the 11am meeting; and Ben Pocock preaching at the 7pm, it was a huge privilege for me to preach at the 9am Kerith meeting. You can listen to the day's preaches again, or for the first time here.
Over the next few days, I'd like to post some of the thoughts and Bible verses that I talked about. I pray that they are an encouragement to you to Tell Your Story.

Our lives tell stories, and as Christians, people of faith who follow Jesus, our lives are a series of moments through which God is telling His story

“We are all of us telling the greatest story of all, the story of redemption,
through the person of Jesus Christ”     
Nancy Beach

A person’s personal story can be a very powerful thing -
It’s what makes the life changing message of the cross personal to us.

1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.

“I bet the story God has written in your life and your home gives voice and breath and arms and legs to the gospel every bit as much as a Church sermon ever did.”
Shauna Niequist

(tomorrow :Telling our story helps us overcome temptation and defeat the devil)

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…
