We're All Older Women (Word and Worship recap)


Yesterday I wrote about how busy the previous week had been (and by the way, here's a short highlights video of the HTB conference which I think you'll enjoy!)

So please indulge me hopping back a whole 9 days to the Word and Worship Brunch on 11th May!

We had a fabulous time together - delicious bacon rolls and fruit pots (yum!) wonderful worship and so many great people making it all happen - thank you to everyone who came, and everyone who served us.I so appreciate you all.
I loved speaking,and bringing the Word - its always a privilege. It's also always nerve-wracking and takes a lot of time to prepare, but its a real privilege to do so. I thank God that He gave me something to speak about, that will help us all live lives that glorify Him.

My talk is now up on the Kerith website, and you can listen again here

Teaching from Titus 2, my aim was to encourage us to see that we are all both older and younger women to each other.
Older women, (and that's all of us, OK?!) - the phrase "teaching what is good" refers to informal teaching by lifestyle - that's sharing our lives, our hearts and homes with others as we model a godly lifestyle.
So the challenge is: Are we living a life worth imitating? and Are we sharing our lives with younger women?

Younger women - are you actively looking for mentors?
Don't imagine that one woman will be all that you need. Look for someone who is great with money, another who is great at her job, watch how another woman loves her husband, or manages her home, how another raises her children, and how another serves God.

We need each other, we can impact wisdom and learn from each other.
Each of us extending a helping hand up and down the generations.

"Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path" Psalm 119

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…

Our Living Hope

Not sure what happens with my blog...or me writing my blog! Can't believe I've been away from it for almost two months. Oh well, no condemnation! Let's pick it up and start again :)
Yesterday was a great day in Church! I was so challenged and encouraged - I love Sundays and all the different ways God shows His love and who he is to us. Natalie Jones preached at both our morning meetings in Bracknell , she gave such a good message on generosity, be sure to catch it when the podcast comes on our website, but for now, watch a summary of Natalie's preach
At the 6pm meeting, we had Paul Manwaring sharing about culture : the 4 Gamechangers - again, a really challenging message to check out if you didn't get to hear it live.

I wore my HOPE earrings yesterday - sometimes I deliberately choose to wear them as a practical symbol that I am choosing HOPE - that I choose Jesus, I choose trust, I choose hope.
I'm so glad I did, as throughout the day I felt God speak to me about …
