Christina Watkins holds a Masters of Divinity.
As reflections on her own life, the eleven poems in Poems for the Journey offer a quiet awareness of the immensity of Spirit in her life, in the people she has loved:  “how much larger we are than we seem to be”, “all of us are diamonds”.
Even when Christina’s subject is shocking (e.g. a priest who dies of AIDS, a cardiologist who shoots a man), the quiet of the lines describes a Spirit larger than that subject.  The final poem, “Calling” suggests the unity all life as One Spirit.  As reflections on one personal life, these poems about Spirit are accessible to everyone.
