Give Thanks

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1Thessolonians 5:16-18

My Blogging has been squeezed out by some busy living this last week, and now by a bit of resting (not feeling quite 100%!) and also preparing for Saturday's Brunch!
However, I couldn't let this week pass without briefly reflecting on last Sunday at Kerith.

I loved taking part in the morning as we collectively gave thanks, joining some Kerith families in thanking God for their babies.
And I'd really recommend you taking time to listen to Janine Jackson 's preach on Thankfulness (listen again here)
It was very moving to see many individuals, groups of friends, couples and families walk forward to hang their "thankful tag" on the trees.

It is good to give thanks.
God is good.

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
