Meet Dr. Beth Felker Jones

We at Deeply Rooted want to give women the opportunity to connect with God intellectually as well as emotionally which is why we’ve asked Dr. Beth Felker Jones to speak.  Beth is a theology professor at Wheaton College who teaches classes like Gender and Theology, Christian Ethics, Marriage, Sex, and Family in the Christian Tradition, Doctrine of the Holy Spirit, and Human Trafficking: Political and Theological Perspectives.

On the lighter side of things, she enjoys writing on pop culture, tackling literary phenomena and its effects on our hearts and mind, evidenced in articles such as “The Hunger Games, Christian Ethics and the Young,” and “Why Mark Driscoll is Wrong About Twilight.”

She writes regularly for the media section of The Christian Century, sharing her thoughts on Beyonce’s Lemonade, the movie Bad Moms, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead.

She is the author of several books: Practicing Christian Doctrine: An Introduction to Thinking and Living Theologically, Faithful: A Theology of Sex, Marks of His Wounds: Gender Politics and Bodily Resurrection, and Touched by a Vampire: Discovering the Hidden Messages in the Twilight Saga.

Finding Rest: Journaling with Color and Line

Many of us journal, some in time of crisis or need, while others very regularly get their responses down on things they have read or conversations they have had. Some of us would like to journal, but those blank pages seem overwhelming. Journaling using line and color may be a way to give a boost to an established journaling practice, or give us another way to respond to what is going on in our lives and around us.

Are you saying to yourself, “I can’t even draw a straight line?” Art journaling is not about making great art. It is about letting color and line speak for you when words can’t. No art ability is required. If you can hold a crayon in your hand, you have everything you need.

Come join us for a creative rest you can engage in during Deeply Rooted and beyond. We will be using easily found items (provided) to create small journal pages.
