Read on for Another Great Deal on REAL tickets!...

I'm so looking forward to seeing all the ladies at REAL this Friday and Saturday! Some of you booked your place at last year's conference, and have been anticipating REAL2012 for almost a year! Many of you booked along the way, some of you finally got round to it last weekend! Whatever category you fall in, I'm so glad that you made the decision to come and be part of REAL - setting aside that time to meet with friends and with God. We're preparing for you and we're praying for you - believe that God will meet you!

I wonder whether you've invited anyone else to come along with you?

You'd think I'd find it easy to invite people wouldn't you? What with standing on the platform and talking at the conference to hundreds?! Truth is, I don't find it that easy to personally invite others along, and I bet you don't either!
However, with just a couple of days to go now I wonder whether I could challenge you to invite?
Perhaps that means invite someone again?
Chase up someone who hasn't yet responded?

My particular burden is to bring women along who aren't yet part of our community. Perhaps they wouldn't call themselves believers?
Perhaps you chat at the school gate; or they're a colleague, or a neighbour or family member?
Perhaps you never even thought that it might be "ok" to invite them to REAL?!

I think REAL's a great place for them to come - after all, we stand for real women, with a real faith in a real God. The teaching is Bible based and practical. We hear women's stories. it's a really positive place, where your friend will be blessed.
I think REAL will be a "safe place that women can hear a dangerous message".

To help you invite your unchurched friends, why not offer to pay for them?
To help you and them, their ticket will cost only £15. These very special tickets are only available at Kerith reception anytime from now until Friday, and also on the door on Friday and Sarturday.
I hope that will make it manageable for us all to invite more women along.
Take a moment to just ask God who He'd have you invite, and then pray for the courage...and then do it!
Our friends are waiting to be invited.

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

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

Meeting my Hero

Yesterday, I met one of my heroes! Bobbie Houston of Hillsong is a beautiful woman! I love her teachings, her godly wisdom, her self deprecating humour. I love the way she leads the whole Colour conference and Sisterhood movement. I listen to her podcasts and read her articles and books. Here at the Global Leadership Summit in Willow Creek,Chicago, her husband Brian gave the most extraordinary, vulnerable and honest responses to Bill Hybel's interview ( notes here) He was signing books at the end of the break and as I turned a corner, there she was! Not being mobbed by fans, but just chatting with a couple of people. Not sure if many of you realise this, but I'm actually an introvert, and quite shy. No really, I am! There's no way I would confidently walk up to someone I admire and begin a conversation! So I walked away. But as I was walking, I thought about how much I'd regret not being brave enough to say Hi..or to thank her for her
