...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.

Beginnings @ Chapelwood!

Greetings from Post-Ike Chapelwood. We hope you are well and among the powered in Houston!

You’re invited to preview Beginnings: An Introduction to Christian Faith on Wednesday, October 1, 6:30-8:00 p.m. @ The Moveable Feast 9341 Katy Freeway.

Enjoy sharing a simple meal, hear a talk, and discuss the basics of Christian faith. Seven continuing gatherings will meet at the same time and place each week. At other times, we will visit one or two Christian communities and see what we can learn from their life together.

Some questions Beginnings explores: Can I give God or the church another chance? What kind of God do Christians believe in? Why is Jesus so important for Christians? How do I start an intentional spiritual life? How can I see my life in a larger frame? What can I learn to trust God?

The meal is free for our guests! Consider previewing Beginnings this Wednesday, October 1, and feel free to reply at sendress@chapelwood.org or call 713-354-4470 if you have any questions!

Why Clergyspirit?

Houston, Texas, United States
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
