Urban Verses is the fruit of ten years of one California-born, Amherst-educated white-Asian woman's life, work, and worship in predominantly African-American west Jackson, Mississippi. What began as a short-term urban ministry project turned into a call to community and the building of a new life alongside the people of Jackson's Voice of Calvary Fellowship. Urban Verses explores in poetry and fiction such topics as inner-city living, reconciliation, parenthood, love, and theology. Retellings of biblical stories, tributes to present-day heroes, laments about crime, musings about identity and relationships--whatever the subject, each vignette offers a contemplative glimpse into the mind and heart of a young woman of faith seeking to understand and live out God's deep concern for the city, for the poor, and for reconciliation.
