I am Redeemed to be Salt and Light

What a brilliant day in Church yesterday! I just love hearing people's stories of how God saved them and is now changing them from the inside out - it's so inspiring, praise God! And this morning I've been listening on repeat (of course!) to "Let The Redeemed of The Lord Say So"
Loved Liam's message to GO and do something this week to share our faith with others. His phrase "We need to be lovers of God, not workers for God" particularly struck a chord with me. Have you signed up to receive daily emails from Texts For Life yet? It's such a great encouragement, as each day a different member of our Kerith community shares some thoughts on this week's Bible verse.

This week I am going to try and follow the  JustONE Conference online. Yes, it's a virtual conference for women. Leading and Loving It is a community that connects, encourages, and supports pastors’ wives and women in ministry.The 20 different speakers look really interesting, and what they have to say will be helpful for all women involved in Church life. It's on for four weeks, and this week, the conference sessions are shown four times, at 2am Tuesday and Wednesday; or 4pm Monday and Tuesday Previous years' conference talks are available here. It's very accessible, real stuff - women sharing their stories and their lives in an informal conversational style, so take a look if you are able to - either live over the next four weeks, or afterwards through the Leading and Loving it website.

Have a great week x

It'll All Be Over Soon...don't miss it!

Well the time is flying isnt it? (or is that just me?)
Ready or not, 2017 is coming to an end and Christmas is fast approaching.


Every. Single. Year. I declare "This is the Christmas I'm going to be calm / spend less / really feel ready and at peace / have time for people / feel close to Jesus and hear His voice / have time and space to enjoy the run-up...and so on (sound familiar anyone?)

Anyone else secretly echoing this top's sentiments in their thoughts?!?!

I'm not an earlybird, or the most organised - and get this, right now I can't find my little Christmas notebook - you know, the one with the last last 4 years of presents given and received listed - anywhere!!!! If you heard Simon preach on Sunday you'll know this is driving me mad!

I'd really love to hear your tips for enjoying and flourishing during this season. We don't' want to just "survive it" do we!
Here are a few of mine.

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at all...so I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

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 …
