December 12 - For unto us a child is born
Reflection by Chelsea Jackson, Drew Theological School alum.
Chelsea Jackson is an ever-evolving poet, theologian and activist. Born and raised in southeastern VA, Chelsea graduated from Shenandoah University with a Bachelor’s in Music Therapy, and from Drew Theological School with a Masters in Divinity. She is currently the Assistant Pastor at the United Methodist Church in Madison NJ, where she works to bridge those inside the church with those outside its walls. Passionate about art and community organizing, in the future Chelsea hopes to work as an asset based community organizer. She has given several workshops about art, social justice and eco-justice, and recently spoke on “Art as Activism” at the 2016 Wild Goose Festival. Amazed at faith's power to both comfort and challenge, Chelsea continues exploring faith, engaging hard questions and raising awareness for social and environmental justice.
