One Week Later

Here are just two of the comments we have received about REAL:

Can I just say as a visitor to your church that your REAL 2012 was an amazing event and just what was needed I assure you for me personally - a family member had invited me
I am so glad I came - we as such do not have anything like this locally sadly - although there are nationwide prayer lady events that happen.


All of your volunteers throughout both days were so friendly and welcoming and so it didn't matter I only knew those who had invited me, because I felt like a friend of the family. During Saturday I was fortunate enough to sit next to a lovely lady and as one does got chatting about the various challenges that Shauna set us as did also Catrina. To cut a long story short we prayed together before the end of the day - no doubt prompted by God - which was a blessed time”


Another lady as she left said “ I know this sounds corny but thank you for doing something so real”
It's so encouraging to hear people talking about REAL this week - about the impact that the teaching and experiences of last weekend are all having in our lives.
I know you'll be encouraged and challenged by reading  some of our "Kerith bloggers", who have written about REAL this week. 
Check out these blogs from     StaceyRuth,  and Sandra.


I'd love to hear your reflections of REAL, and how you're working through what you heard, so please feel free to send me a comment or a link.


Regardless of whether you share publicly or not, it's so helpful to meet up with a friend and have  a conversation with them about what God's speaking to you . I know that our lovely events team have't yet heard any of the talks, as they were busy working all conference. They are planning a "Podcast evening" -setting aside an evening to listen together to the teaching - and then chat about it - great! Thanks to the speedy work of the team , most of the talks are already available  on the Kerith website to listen again .
It's so easy to "move on" to the next thing. But as Lydia said last weekend, "don't let the notes you took at REAL stay in your notebook / phone / head" - work them out, work out the implications, the "what next" and the "so what" for your life. That's all part of us doing and not merely hearing the word.

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…
