ONE Summer Holiday Idea

The New Year is the time many of us start to think about what we're going to do in the summer (when hopefully it will be warmer and drier than it is right now!). If that's you I'd like to suggest you think about going to the ONE Event, which is at the Lincolnshire Showground from the 23rd to the 27th August.

For years our family summer holidays included a trip to a Bible week, including every single Stoneleigh Bible week for those of you who remember that. It's been quite a few years since we've been to anything similar, but last summer I was asked to speak at the ONE Event, which meant that Catrina and I got to attend all of it. We had a brilliant time, loving the worship, the teaching and being able to relax in the company of a load of really interesting people. A couple of other Kerith families went too and said they and their children loved it and are planning to go again.

I know since Stoneleigh stopped lots of our people have started to go to events like Soul Survivor, New Wine, Rocknations and others. I personally think that's great, exposing us to many of the great things God is doing in our nation. But if you're not plugged into one of those events why not consider coming to ONE.

You can find loads more details about it here, including booking forms, the list of speakers and the like. Catrina and I are planning on being on site this year, and all of us who go from Kerith will get to camp together (there are also options to stay off site if that works better for you).

No pressure, but I thought it might be something you'd like to consider.

Simon.
