A “charism” is a spiritual gift given to share with others for their benefit. Clarence has been given with the charisms of spiritual direction, writing poetry and painting. Over the past nine years, he has shared these gifts through his book Everyday Sacred and his month email Connecting New. During this time many of you have affirmed that sharing these gifts has been uplifting, inspiring, thought-provoking or helpful to you in other ways. You have shared Connecting New emails with your friends. You have used poems from Everyday Sacred at retreats, weddings, funerals and many occasions in between. Now is the time for Clarence to share more through a daily piece of goodness.
