Author Talk: A Conversation about Divinity Within


A pre-publication opportunity to meet with local author and hear about her journey and her new book “Words, Wonder, and the Divine in You”, a unique blend of spiritual reflection and inspirational guidebook, inviting you to discover your own authentic connection to divinity. 




Deborah Roof, a queer Christian pastor, shares her experience, strength and hope and invites the reader to take their own spiritual journey.  Exemplifying her authentic gift of hospitality Roof shares the truth she has come to know: divinity dwells within each one of us. She finds God in the wonder of the created world and in the scriptures she has come to love. 




As much as Roof loves a God-by-whatever-name-resonates-for-you, she also loves Christian scripture and works to find redemption even in the verses used as weapons. Roof invites us to take a close look at the words we use and the meaning we intend.




Words, Wonder, and the Divine in You is a journey and an invitation. Deborah Roof’s generosity of spirit and openness about her truths encourages and supports others to look closely at their own journey, to be open to the Divine that surrounds us – and especially to the Divine within each of us. This little book of wonders is for anyone who has been hurt by toxic religious institutions or for anyone who wonders if there’s more to this human life – more wonder, more wisdom, more love.
