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.

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 for myself what had …

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't recommend i…

Clare's Macedonia reflections

You'll remember that in May I went to Macedonia? 
I took a team of wonderful Kerith women, and together we supported Marija Vuletic as she led the Vredna Conference in Skopje (the capital city) Macedonia. It was such a rich time (challenging too at times!) we gave, but we also received so much. It was a real privilege to stand alongside these wonderful women - our sisters in Christ.

Here are Clare's reflections of our time together.

Spending time with the women in Macedonia spoke to me so much about our world-wide family in faith. God really is bringing people from every people group into relationship with Him! We were joined by women from Serbia and the Roma community. I think joy in hardship sums up what many of the women are experiencing right now. Some have only been believers for a very short time, but their joy in belonging to Jesus and being on a journey with Him was so clear. I spent time talking to some of the youngest women at the conference. A few of them feel the strugg…
