LIFE NEWSLETTER
Written by Lydia   
Friday, 26 September 2014 04:03

It is 3 years since ‘LIFE’ first opened the door. We have been blessed indeed. It has always been more than a book shop in this newsletter we give an outline of LIFE@LIFE.

Answers to Prayer! Over the last few years the building we are in has been rented but the Landlord has wanted to sell which would force us to move with significant impact to customer’s both local and from afar. However due to God prompted generosity from others, we have been able to commence the legal process to acquire the whole building.

Please join us in thanking God for his blessing and please pray for the continued day to day provision for running costs and family. Thank you for your wonderful support.

Gifts galore: New in this year a wide range of gifts including kitchenware and timber sculpture each conveys a positive message, for friend or family. A wide range of cards and CD’s etc. to give you something for different tastes.

More than a bookshop: We have had the privilege to spend time in conversations and tears; with people healed, wanderers returned home. Bent over and crippled, bitter and in pain, now straightened, refreshed, joining in local fellowship and sharing their joy of new life. Through Christ people have been encouraged including the addicted and emotionally disturbed, we have seen anger turn to peace and fear to hope. The sofas are a prayer space, even when the shop is busy people stop and pray and strangers become friends. Please come and join the conversation.

NEW Children’s books: A great new wider range is here in a dedicated area, please come and see for yourself, bring your children or your grandchildren see the new selection of Bibles and stories colouring books and games. and meet Lenny the lion.

Open events: Are opportunities to welcome everyone. One man came in, loud and abrasive but left at peace, thanked everyone for welcoming him. He found a home for a day, where he could share some of his story and be prayed for. Call us if you want to hold an event at LIFE.

Saturday 'Live @ Life'
Written by Lydia   
Saturday, 21 June 2014 14:54

We have been enjoying a day of live music at Life today (Saturday 21st June 2014).

It has been wonderful to sing praise to our great God along with Tim Bruce and his very talented family, among friends and visitors. It has been a privilege to  pray with and for some of those who are visiting the town on this very busy day.

We'd like to say a big thank you to Tim and thoroughly recommend his CD 'Find Your Voice', which is aimed at allowing the listener to fill in the words to worship God in their own way.

Look out for the next 'Saturday Live @ Life' in the near future, watch this space and our facebook page for more details.

Some Great New Children's Books In At Life!
Written by Lydia

We are loving these new books for children here at Life!

'Noah's Ark' by Bethan Lycett, with beautiful, fun illustrations by Hannah Stout. Price £3.99

Tells the story, in rhyme, from the point of view of Mr Penguin who hears from God that he needs to; "Call Mrs Penguin, pack up before dark, and find Mr Noah, who's making an ark."

A lovely book for pre-shcoolers!

Also from the same team of Lycett and Stout; The Lost Sheep. Price £3.99

Tells of sheep going off to explore, then realising he is lost and worrying "what the shepherd would say, knowing the trouble he'd brought his own way"

Each of these books tells a well known and loved bible story with a gentleness that suits younger children but brings in some truths that other books for younger children may leave out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

'The Mystery Of The Missing Spots' by C.B. Martin Illustrated by Jenny Brake

A great story for slightly older children, to read with an adult or by themselves. This is the story of Naaman and his spots, Elisha's greedy servant but also the story of us all and how God is the only one who can really make us clean.

With clear fresh illustrations that will appeal to children aged 5-9 (and their parents!) Price £3.99

 

 

 

 

 

'The Mystery Of The Empty Tomb' by C.B.Martin Illustrated by Jenny Brake.

This tells the story of two great mysteries, 1. Why did Barabas, a bad man live and why did Jesus, a good man die in his place? (And ours!) 2. Why was Jesus' tomb empty three days after he died?

We would recommend this book for slightly older children aged 6-9 or 10. There's a lot to get your mind around here! Again clearly illustrated by Jenny Brake. Price £3.99

 
Spring At Life

Saturday, 12 April 2014 10:41

With Easter fast approaching isn't it wonderful to be seeing a bit more of the sunshine!

We will be closed on Good Friday 18th April until Tuesday 22nd April.

We would like to thank you, our wonderful customers, volunteers, friends and landlords, for all your support over the past couple of months as we have faced new challenges to the ministry of Life.

For us this place has always been about so much more than selling Bibles, books, gifts and cards with a Christian message. It is being here to support and encourage people in the various stages of the Christian walk, whether they have been walking with Jesus for years or are just taking first tiny steps towards meeting Him. Whether they come in and just sit a while or need help to choose a Bible or something else to encourage or just read our verse of the day in the shop window.

It has been a real privilege to be a part of peoples lives, to watch as people meet each other, often for the first time, talk together, pray together and even share a hug as they say goodbye. Seeing the way God's Holy Spirit in each one brings a real bond like no other.

It is in times of challenge that we cling tighter to the Rock and in doing so see Him more clearly. We know He is not finished with us yet and look forward to what He will do in Weston and the surrounding areas in the future.

Our God is and awesome God! Lets take some time out over the Easter season to really praise Him as He deserves.

May He bless you as you bless others in His name.
