Girls Just Want to have Fun

Posted by PicasaWe had a fun fun fun time on Saturday afternoon at the Sound of Music Singalong Movie!
Really great to meet lots of new women and also many visitors. We loved the popcorn, the hot drinks (on a cold snowy afternoon) and the ice creams. We loved sitting next to friends and singing along together. A few of us even shed a tear or two at times! We loved celebrating those women that had dressed up or brought along props. Like this postcard says - we just had fun!
I'm so grateful for the team that made the event happen - each of you who worked hard before, during and after the event knows that I couldn't have done it without you!!! Special thanks to both Colin and Kev - who worked really hard behind the scenes, with all the technical and all the practical components - I really appreciate them serving our event so happily - thanks guys!

We want to provide a variety of events for you all - because we women like variety and we don't all like the same things, just because we're women!  
So look out for future Simply events:
Saturday 10th March Simply Word and Worship 
Saturday 19th May : Simply Quiz

Just a thought - what are you doing that's FUN in your life at the moment? Who could you spend some fun time with?  I sometimes get so busy just doing (really good things!) that I realise I'm not meeting friends and having fun - in my experience, it needn't be expensive ,or elaborate, it just takes being intentional to plan and invite!
So, I'd like to hear what's fun for you and your friends?

My friends from work absolutely LOVED it (as did I!) They couldn't believe how good value the evening was and have already given me suggestions to pass on for the next singalong - I think Dirty Dancing rated quite highly! I'll certainly be inviting them all back for the quiz.

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 …
