Book Recommendations & Reviews
By Lynsey Dowds:
The books were a gift to my heart and taught me fresh ways to see God with the inclusion of spiritual practices I hadn’t been familiar with.
“These books have been definitely one of my all time favourites! Gripped from the start and throughout. They led me as a reader not only to enjoy the well written stories of women’s lives but fresh eyes on my relationship with God. The books were a gift to my heart and taught me fresh ways to see God with the inclusion of spiritual practices I hadn’t been familiar with. Definitely a well worth rewarding read and the study guides give an added bonus for group reading.
Having been so caught with these books I have given them as gifts to friends and recommended them over and over. I’ve followed the author for some time and how cool to know now she and her husband (both pastors) have now moved to Dundee Scotland! So watch this space as the doors continue to open wide to beautiful connections that only God could overlap and write. I’ve connected with Sharon and hope to invite her at a future date to meet you all too!”
From Book 1:
“Over 100,000 SoldA 2013 Midwest Publishing Awards Show Honorable MentionSharon Garlough Brown tells the moving story of four strangers as they embark together on a journey of spiritual formation: Hannah, a pastor who doesn’t realize how exhausted she is. Meg, a widow and recent empty-nester who is haunted by her past. Mara, a woman who has experienced a lifetime of rejection and is now trying to navigate a difficult marriage. Charissa, a hard-working graduate student who wants to get things right.
You’re invited to join these four women as they reluctantly arrive at a retreat center and find themselves drawn out of their separate stories of isolation and struggle and into a collective journey of spiritual practice, mutual support and personal revelation. Along the way, readers will be taken into a new understanding of key spiritual practices and find tangible support for the deeper life with God. If you want to travel this journey with others, you will find a group study guide and book club resources at www.sensibleshoesclub.com
Baby Dedication – 12th June
Son of Bethan & Barry, and brother to Noah, Bethan says
“I believe that my children are a gift and a blessing from God. I believe that he is asking me to make a public declaration of my faith and honour him by dedicating my boys to him and bringing them up in our church family at the Vine.”
Children are a gift from God.
A dedication is a celebration, a commitment and a blessing.
“Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a real blessing.” Psalm 127:3

Daily Inspiration Post
By Gill Hannah:
Song of Songs 2:10 10 My beloved spoke and said to me,
“Arise, my darling,
my beautiful one, come with me.
He knows the way because He made the way…
The way out leads to wide open spaces, into His abundance, into places where grace upon grace exists for every less-than thing.
He knows your heart, knows that it beats best when it finds its rhythm in His.
And so, He stands ready, always waiting for your response to this divine invitation of love; to draw you to His and lead you out.
And we find ourselves standing tall in places we’d been small, standing tall in places that had held us down and hemmed us in.
Standing tall, holding hands with the One who fixed our and helped it beat in time with His.
Ask Him… He’s near.
