Blog March 21st “Charlotte’s Story”


I Sing This Song Of Love For You featuring Lucy Stimpson – Maynard from the album ” I Look Up To The Heavens” recorded and produced by John Hodgkinson

So on Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of Sarah and Richard at Holy Rood church.  Sarah and Richard had attended an Alpha course that I had helped with.

Understandably there were many guests there that I did know including a couple right in front of me with their lovely young daughter.  I noticed that the young woman was singing along to all the worship songs and so at a convenient moment I asked her how she knew them.  She told me her name was Charlotte and that she had been a Christian for two years and that she went to Testwood Baptist Church. She and her husband work with Sarah and Richard and it was they who had invited them to take part in an Alpha course.  There was no course available at the time at Testwood Baptist and so Sarah and Richard came to Holy Rood instead.

As we were chatting (actually it was during the signing of the register) another Holy Rood member reached out to Charlotte saying how much she had enjoyed her testimony.  This prompted me ask “What testimony”?  Charlotte then gave me the link. Of course I reciprocated by giving her this one

When I opened the Testwood Baptist church link I was so impressed with  Charlotte’ Story and the way that it was presented  that I just had to share it. I am not sure if it is classed as poetry or spoken word but whatever it is, it is brilliant. Please have a listen.
