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

It'll All Be Over Soon...don't miss it!

Well the time is flying isnt it? (or is that just me?)
Ready or not, 2017 is coming to an end and Christmas is fast approaching.


Every. Single. Year. I declare "This is the Christmas I'm going to be calm / spend less / really feel ready and at peace / have time for people / feel close to Jesus and hear His voice / have time and space to enjoy the run-up...and so on (sound familiar anyone?)

Anyone else secretly echoing this top's sentiments in their thoughts?!?!

I'm not an earlybird, or the most organised - and get this, right now I can't find my little Christmas notebook - you know, the one with the last last 4 years of presents given and received listed - anywhere!!!! If you heard Simon preach on Sunday you'll know this is driving me mad!

I'd really love to hear your tips for enjoying and flourishing during this season. We don't' want to just "survive it" do we!
Here are a few of mine.

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 all...so 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…

Paula's Encouragement

I love a podcast!
Podcasts get me through situations where time might drag, or perhaps I've got some time to myself - I'm think a bike work-out at the Gym; a long car journey; or food for my mind and soul whilst I'm cooking.

I've just got back from holiday, and having missed a couple of Sundays, I have caught up with Kerith podcasts, listening to three outstanding preaches from Ben Pocock and Ben Oliver in Bracknell; and Heather Pocock in Sandhurst - I found myself wanting to join in with a few loud "amens" this morning at the gym!

What about you? Let me know when and where do you listen to podcasts?

Our guest contributor today is the wonderful Paula Ridgway - with her large heart , great enthusiasm and infectious faith, she is such a huge blessing to many at Kerith. 
Over to Paula for her encouragement to simply gather a few friends, to listen to a podcast together and then talk about it and see what God is saying. 

"Podcasts are great if one misses out on a …
