...self care is never a selfish act- it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer to others. Anytime we can listen to true self and give it the care it requires, we do so not only for ourselves but for the many others whose lives we touch.

VBS @ Chapelwood: A Wonderful Blessing!

Where else can you go to engage and be lifted by the energy of hundreds of children and youth than in the Jerusalem marketplace?

This was an awesome week! Thanks to all who made this happen. The adults are the ones who are blessed to have participated.

I want to thank my fellow upper-roomers and youth, Mark Cotham and Steve Moen for their great assistance all week. They were a delight to work with. Thanks to them, dozens of kids made some great looking plaques featuring a Psalm or a masonry nail cross.

And the kids will be singing about VBS this Sunday, June 15 at the 8:25 service at Chapelwood. Come and hear them!

Shalom!

Why Clergyspirit?

Having been in ordained ministry in the UMC for 34 years, I've experienced the truth that although, clergy are frequently present for others, no one can offer what they don't have.That's why if you're a clergy person, you need someone who will listen to you. Not the random next closest person available, but rather someone like a spiritual director, a therapist, a peer who can be fully present to you. I hope the links and posts you find here will give you ideas, humor, hope and encouragement. Scott Endress

Try Gratitude

If you want a formula for making the best of the less-than-perfect and making the most of what you have been given, then begin to compare your lot to what you were before you were born, and it will empower you with wonder every time. John Claypool
