Dear Folks -
Four times a year my beautiful bride, Sherry Beeman, Ph.D., and I give a relationship seminar that is sponsored by St. Paul's. The next one is this coming Saturday from 9 until 2. Child care is available. The cost of the seminar is $60 per couple and this goes to cover the costs of lunch and materials. If you or someone you know would like to attend, registration must be made. Call 713-528-0527 and ask to speak to Kat Denton to register.
I know that many of you know about a variety of "supplement tools" on the web for psychological and spiritual growth. For example, The Center for Action and Contemplation sends out a daily meditation written by Richard Rhor. Go to
and explore their site for a wealth of resources as well as to sign up for the daily e-mails.
I want to let you know about another. A friend and colleague of mine, Barbara Wendland, has an excellent monthly newsletter that you can subscribe to. Go to
More importantly she is sponsoring a gathering September 28-29 in Temple, Texas. The featured speaker this year is Robin Meyers. He has written, among other books, "The Underground Church: Reclaiming the Subversive Way of Jesus." You can find out more information about this conference and about the newsletter at the web site mentioned above. Even if the conference is something you can't attend, you might want to explore Meyers' book and subscribe to Barbara's newsletter.
This week in Ordinary Life I spoke about how individually, corporately and globally our notions of religion and spiritual need to be "healed." Misconceptions of both are causing much damage.
