REAL2014 TRUE

What is truth?
What is truth?

If you're booked into REAL, I hope you received an email from the REAL team this morning?

It's called "Ready for REAL?" and it's full of practical information, helping you to prepare for our wonderful 36 hours together. (If you didn't get it, please email info@kerith.co.uk) being women, we tend to enjoy all the details, and we like to know what to expect - it helps us to look forward to something.

With less than four weeks to go now, we also want to help you to look forward to the theme of REAL 2014. This years theme is TRUE - and it's all about God's Word, and the Truth it reveals, and about how knowing this Truth sets you free.

Pilate asked "what is truth?" A question people are still asking today in our postmodern world, where there are truths, not truth, and where any truth is relative to one's culture.

The Psalmist says "All your words are true, all your righteous law are eternal" Psalm 118:160, and we will be unashamedly teaching about The Truth at REAL.

It's great to share tools and tips for reading the Bible - we all need help and we're all different, so it's good to talk about what's effective.To lead us all into the theme, Exposition and their friends have created some Bible Devotions written with our theme, and you in mind.

I'm excited that we will all be studying these passages together on the run up to REAL and beyond. Look in your inboxes for the first Devotion early tomorrow morning, because we'll be starting off with this wonderful life transforming verse, which really forms the foundation for the whole of REAL2014.

To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, ‘If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’ John 8:31-32 (NIV)

They'll come once a week before REAL, and then for two weeks afterwards (getting us all into good habits!) I'd love to know how you get on with them, and what God says to you through them.

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow Jesus...no turning back.Take a listen to this beautiful song from Hillsong - every time I hear these words and sing along it changes my perspective, turns me around, gets my focus off me and onto Jesus - "Christ Is Enough For Me". ...No turning back, I've been set free...Christ is enough for me.

Discover your Worth, your Strength, your Purpose

Following a successful Kerith launch in the Spring, Sarah Farley and her team are ready to go again,leading their 2nd SHINE course.
SHINE is an eight week self esteem course for women. The evenings are a mixture of Talks and discussion time, with a practical approach to learning. It's a really encouraging environment, and the evenings are a lot of fun. The course starts this Tuesday evening, and there are still some spaces available.Here's your personal invite from Sarah!Shine is about to run again and I'm excited to see what God is going to do this time round. If you haven't already heard, Shine is a course designed for women who want to live their life in abundance, the way God designed them to live it. To recognise all their worth, to grow in self-esteem, to see all their strengths and positives and ultimately live a life of purpose.We've still got a few places left so if you're interested there's more information here on the Kerith website, where you can…

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 …
