...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.

Tokens of Trust @ Chapelwood!


I'm facilitating an Introduction to Christianity using Tokens of Trust as the resource! The summer group will meet at Chapelwood on Wednesdays, August 12, 19, 26, 7:00-8:15 p.m. and the fall group will meet at Chapelwood on Sundays, September 13, 20, and 27, 11:00 a.m.-12:15 p.m.

The book by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, is a helpful, easy-to read exploration of the two ancient creeds of the church, the Apostles and the Nicene. We will not expect anyone to be well versed in the creeds.

The book is not required reading- it's provided for further study and reflection. Each evening will include a gathering time, a talk, and small groups. There is no charge for the book or refreshments. For further information, contact Scott Endress at sendress@chapelwood.org or 713-354-4470.

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
