Send my Roots Rain explores ways in which the life-giving water of the Spirit can soak down to the roots of a priest’s life and work.

Many priests know what it is to be thirsty: to be overwhelmed by the pressures inherent within their ministry and have little time for themselves or for God. Yet, each priest is also a disciple, whose spiritual, physical and emotional health matters to God, who calls each one by name.

Send My Roots Rain explores attitudes, practices and ways of prayer capable of refreshing and sustaining priests and pastors amidst the challenges and stresses of their way of life.

Christopher Chapman draws on more than thirty years’ experience of spiritual direction, formational training and leading retreats for priests and ordinands to offer a book full of wisdom that new and experienced 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’.
