ItemThe gold behind the paper currency: literature and the Christian college(Direction, 1995) Martens, Wilfred ItemThe poetry of Jean Janzen: a theological approach(Mennonite Quarterly Review, 1998-10) Roberts, Laura SchmidtThis essay explores theological themes and imagery in the recent work of Jean Janzen by considering poems from an as yet unpublished manuscript Tasting the Dust, the first section of which is a collection of poems about the San Joaquin Valley of California. I will focus on three poems from the first section of Tasting the Dust: "Claiming the Dust," "In Tule Fog" and "The Mountain." In these poems Janzen's identity as a San Joaquin Valley poet and as a Mennonite/Anabaptist poet is most visibly intertwined. The experience and geography of the valley become powerful imagery for expressing theological themes from her ethno-religious tradition. ItemFrom Laramie to Baghdad: dreams of peace in a world at war(DreamSeeker Magazine, 2004) Nisly, HopeThis is a personal essay written when the United States began the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. At the same time, Christian Peacemaker Teams (with my brother as a member) sent in a small team to "wage peace" in the midst of the military show of "shock and awe." It was a time of anguish for many people, for many reasons. This was my attempt to come to terms with the upheaval of the time.
