The W&W Brunch

Saturday's Word and Worship Brunch was really enjoyable - great food, great atmosphere, great worship, great to be together!
Thanks to everyone who came; and thanks also to everyone who made the morning possible, serving beforehand and on the day itself - we really couldn't do it without you all!

It was a huge privilege for me to bring the word at the brunch. Thank you for your encouraging stories and comment, sharing with me how God spoke to you.
One of my favourites went something along the lines of "we all have so many things going on in our heads and our lives, we don't need more things to add to it, so thank you for bringing a clear and simple message".
And it is simple!
Inspired by the song "Jesus at the centre of it all",I talked about us wanting to put Jesus at the centre of our lives, and yet reality is that we find ourselves denying Jesus, hardly mentioning his name in our conversations, and crowding him out into the background with other things taking centre place.
Writer of the song, Israel Houghton said: "This song simply places Jesus where he is supposed to be - we intentionally removed the metaphors and simply focused on his name"
So, my question to you and to me today, and every new day is:
What would that mean for each us - to put Jesus where he is supposed to be?
Enjoy the song here, and let those words soak in and speak truth into your heart, soul and life today.

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

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 slip over on the back door 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…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
