Gary is a member of our worship team here at KMFC, and he and his wife Fiona do lots of great work with the young people. Gary is a very hardworking local councillor. Gaz also plays the ukulele and writes songs. Gary has chosen

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

I haven’t ever done this word/verse thing in the past. But after a week of consideration, I have concluded my #word365, for this year just has to be shine -


with the associated #verse2014 from Philippians 2 [Good News]

You must shine among them like stars lighting up the sky as you offer them the message of life.

I am lighting this candle every Sunday lunchtime as a reminder!



  1. Lovely to hear you and your friends words and look forward to hearing how they have fitted into your lives this year.

  2. Very good! Good to have a focus word or passage for the year x

  3. Hey Ang, great word! Had to smile as 'Shine' is the name of my most recent anthology! We're going through Philippians in church at the moment, too :)

  4. Shine is great Angela.
    I have had CALM on a piece of paper on my desk at work this last week, so CALM it is! I need to let every day irritations not get me down.

  5. Shine is an excellent word. Your light in your corner of the world.

  6. Thank you so much for this, I have had "Trust & Obey" in my head and it keeps coming back!! So not technically one word but I am going with it as my "words" for 2014!!
