We're Getting Ready!

Less than two weeks to go until REAL, and we're getting ready! There's been a lot of work going on for a long time behind the scenes, but now we're so close, it's more obvious - and its great to share the excitement!
My daughter's just come home from making beautiful decorations with a group of girls - the Kerith centre's going to look so lovely! My boys'  friends are hanging out it in my kitchen  eating flapjacks, drinking coffees - both young men totally committed to serving wholeheartedly at REAL.
And I've spent this evening in the company of some remarkable women. They'll be sharing their stories at REAL, so we were all getting to know one another and deciding the interview questions together. Their stories will really inspire and challenge you - and they are wonderful and real as they tell them!
I can't wait!
This week there's a lot of activity for REAL - so look out for it!
We'll be taking a few moments at each Prayer meeting (this Wednesday and Thursday evening) to pray for REAL - so please come and join us in praying if you can. We'll be "..praying that He'll fill your good ideas and acts of faith with His own energy so that it all amounts to something.." (2 Thess 1). It's all for Jesus, and we just want to prepare as well as we can, knowing that He will come and breath life into it all, changing us all, from the inside out.

Thought I'd share the beautiful creative work of my friend Esther - I love this - she has created and prepared a special notebook for REAL - she's fully expectant that God will speak at REAL! Love that faith.

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 …
