Welcoming Warmth

I managed it into church today. On arrival; we (P2 and I) were greeted with so many friendly familiar faces. The church itself hasn’t changed but there was so many new people – although new people that seemed to know my parents. P2 was bombarded with pokes and prods from all different ages. She ended up getting quite frustrated I …

40 Acts – Day 10 – Grab A Cuppa

Who could you ‘grab a cuppa’ with today? Seize the moment this weekend and invite someone new for a coffee or to your house for tea and cake. Get to know your neighbours and ‘grab a cuppa!’ 40 Acts was certainly not designed for me! I hate tea and coffee. Although I can do today’s task on the day for …

40 Acts – Day 9 – Get Together

It’s simple. Invite your friends over, order a curry and spend an evening catching up. I like this one. This one I can do. Yesterday I planned to go and visit my friend. I’m not a social butterfly at the best of times. And prefer my little collection of online friends via Facebook. Lets face it… It costs less. I …

40 Acts – Day 8 – Cross A Generation

Think about someone from a different generation – at your work, church or community group – who you can get to know more.

40 Acts – Day 7 – Visit Your Local

Look for ways to support the local community beyond your church walls. Take time to visit your local pub with family or a group from your church. Who is there? What does it tell you about your community? Is this a threshold you should be crossing over more often? For more ideas, visit the pubchurch website and read about the …

40 Acts – Day 6 – Be A Mentor

Consider becoming a mentor to a younger person. Perhaps someone at your church, at your work or a family member or a friend. It could catch on and span generations. The word mentor means an advisor. Or to advise or train. This is going to be a tricky one because I’m constantly at home. My mum told me to teach …

40 Acts – Day 5 – Read The Local News

It’s simple. Pick up the newspaper from the doormat. Make yourself a mug of tea. Slowly read the paper. Each time it mentions a person or a street, lift them up before God and ask for his blessing. Don’t miss out on the adverts, especially if they are about local businesses. Then look for the names of the editor and …

A Day Of Rest

There will be no 40 Acts post today as it’s a day of rest. I’m resting in every way possible today! Slowly but surely I’m getting used to the demands of my beautiful newborn. I never had P1 at home when she was this young and the whole process with P2 has been like a whole new journey. Like I’ve …

40 Acts – Day 4 – Get Uncomfortable

So I challenge you to step up and step out of your comfort zone; tell a mate about your faith, apologise, share your lunch, write to your parents, pray dangerously, maybe even throw a banquet… Go, be brave today, God is with you. Today’s task was about doing something out of your comfort zone. It was quite hard to think …

39 Weeks Of Pregnancy

I’ve made it to 39 weeks pregnant. How?! I’m still completely and utterly shocked that my tiny 4foot 8inch body can carry the child of a 6foot man! To mark the last 7 official days of pregnancy I’m going to do a little blog survey: How far along are you? I am 39 weeks exactly. How big is Baby? According …
