Wonderer. Wanderer. Poet-theologian. Passionate about storytelling. Passionate about words (and Oxford commas).
Christine Havens writes in a wide variety of genres–poetry, theological reflections, Bible studies, book reviews, feature articles, and more. Her work has been published in The Episcopal Journal, on the Sermons That Work website, and she has been a regular contributor to Forward Movement’s Daily Devo family email series for over two years.
