...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.

Your Beginnings Invitation

This 8 week series explores spiritual “habits of the heart" and the Christian experience of the Holy Spirit. This study engages a different form of prayer each week. The Preview gathering is Wednesday, March 25, 2009, 6:30-8:15 p.m. at A Moveable Feast, 9341 Katy Freeway. Hope you can join us!

Topics include:

• Where is the Spirit in Spirituality? (Preview)
• How much am I willing to risk?
• What is most important to me?
• How can I find balance in life?
• What do I want to be when I grow up?
• How do I keep the things I own from owning me?
• What can I do with my doubts?
• Can a change in me change the world?

Each session begins with a meal, followed by a talk by Associate Pastor Scott Endress, and small groups. The Beginnings format is relaxed and informal. For more information or to RSVP, contact Scott Endress, (713) 354-4470, sendress@chapelwood.org.

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
