The Olympic Torch Comes to Bracknell!

Yesterday morning, Andy Jackson ran with the Olympic torch.
Yesterday evening, he came to our house for  site pastors and worship leaders training...and brought the torch with him!!!!
Oh the fun we had - much posing and posturing!

Andy's kindly letting us all have a hold of the Olympic torch - in exchange for a donation to CAP. As he says "I expect you have already heard me say that I’d like us to keep the Torch here for as long as it is of interest to people coming into the building and, at the same time, raise some money for our CAP Centre. There are 8,000 holes in The Torch (one for each Torchbearer and each mile covered by the Flame) and so the target is £8,000. To donate, you could either buy/sponsor one of the holes for a £1 (or more for more) or, for a donation, bring your phone or camera and have your very own photo with a piece of Olympic history".
You can donate here and also check out how close he's getting to the target. Pop into the Kerith Centre with you camera (and donation!)

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
