Shea Watts
Shea is Covenant's much-beloved Director of Contemporary Worship & Arts, but you might not know he holds a PhD in theology and culture from Chicago Theological Seminary. His book Where the Spirit Is: Pentecostal Worship, Affect, Ritual, and Liberative Praxis focuses on the history of Pentecostalism in the U.S., beginning with African American Spirituals and followed by a study of The Fellowship of Affirming Ministries (TFAM), a predominately Black LGBTQ+ movement that integrates Pentecostal worship and theology with an inclusive theology.

Patricia Joslin

I’ll Buy Flowers Again Tomorrow: Poems of Loss and Healing, by Covenant's Patricia Ann Joslin, pays homage to the poet's beloved husband of 41 years. Diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2015, Roy Joslin bravely lived with the disease until his death in the spring of 2018. These poems echo the grief of the cancer journey so many face today, yet they offer the promise of hope and healing to those who remain behind.
