WOW!

I wish that you all could see what I saw, and hear what I heard at last nights rehearsal for REAL!

Wow!

The worship...Performance songs and dances...Drama...Music...Lights...Sound..and Stage - it's looking and sounding beautiful, and really exciting! Not long now and we'll all experience it for real :)

I wonder whether there are girls in your world who aren't part of Kerith, perhaps don't share your faith? The evenings at REAL would be a great "taster" for them. I knew it already, and I have faith in the speakers and in what we'll all be bringing, but to actually see the fantastic standard of all the creative elements prompted a longing in my heart to bring more friends along to "taste and see".

As I mentioned in my last blog, we've released tickets for the evening sessions. They are £5 at the special registration point at Kerith on the night. Friday night the conference kicks off, worship,loads of creative elements, a talk from me, and I'll be interviewed along with Kim and Abs. Saturday night is the Celebration of the conference, and so again fab creativity, music and we'll hear from Kim again. So, there's nothing like a bit of a deadline! Don't say "no" for your friends - this could be just what they need! Lets get inviting!

As I write this, Kim is on a plane about to take off on here way to us. Let's pray for her, for the friends she is binging (Dolce and Susan) and for Abs (and her friend Joanna). And lets not forget ourselves, and our own "journey" over these next few days,as we look forward to REAL. As well as making all the practical arrangements, let's pray and keep close to Jesus, preparing our hearts for all that He will whisper to us.

Women who have been praying for the conference, for the team and for you have such a sense of expectancy that God will be very present and active at REAL. My prayer is that we all arrive at REAL ready, expectant, open to hearing God's heart .

Do whatever it takes!

Bless you - can't wait for us all to be together very soon x

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…

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 …
