The pressure of expectations often means that priests fail to care for themselves and neglect their own spiritual life. Thinking they must be able to do it all, the need to be constantly available, to achieve and succeed, to cope with difficult people, to defend church teaching they question, lack of time for prayer, unresolved doubt and personal difficulty can all cause spiritual malaise. Send My Roots Rain explores these pressures and offers realistic and supportive ways priests can address them while nurturing their own wellbeing and spiritual development. Christopher Chapman draws on more than thirty years' experience of spiritual direction, formational training and retreat leading, as well as his own experience of priesthood, to offer a host of simple, life-giving practices and personal disciplines for spiritual health. Full of wise advice from someone who understands, this is a book that priests will turn to again and again.

Christopher Chapman

Christopher Chapman was Spirituality Adviser for the Anglican Diocese of Southwark between 2009 and 2016. He is a former Catholic priest, and has an extensive background in Christian education, including co-ordinating authorised pastoral care training for the Diocese of Southwark for many years.

He has been involved in retreat giving and spiritual direction since the later 1980’s following training at St. Beuno’s Spiritual Exercises Centre and Heythrop College. He is a regular guest director for individually guided retreats at St. Beuno’s. Christopher is also an Associate Tutor for St. Augustine’s College of Theology.

He now lives in Blean, near Canterbury with his wife June. In his spare time he enjoys walking, writing and gardening. He describes the thread running through his work over time as ‘Supporting people in their journey with God, in their movement towards self-acceptance and towards the more free and generous sharing of who they are and what they have to give’.
