Summer Reading

    Sea Raven has two e-books available from for your summer beach commute. 

    The first is a short, fast-paced, political intrigue:  “Washington Legal: What Secretaries Know and When They Know It.”  Behind the scenes in a Washington, D.C. law firm at the turn of the 21st Century, an unconventional Human Resources Director protects her secretarial staff from dysfunctional bosses, rolls with the punches of outsourcing and evolving digital technology, and uncovers a pre-9/11 international deal that leads to murder.  Yours for just 99 cents on your Kindle

    The second is“The J’Argon,” a full-length, future-fiction fantasy published in 2000 by, now also available as an e-Book from Amazon.  The J’Argon is the leader of a spiritual alliance that has voice but not vote in 22nd century global politics.  She is the Fourth J’Argon and the first woman to hold the title since the Covenant of the Word was formed in 2047.  Her long-time lover, partner, and soul friend, the Arch Deacon of the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. is a leader in the liberation underground.  The Year is 2157.  The United States has become a repressive theocracy, where a great evil holds sway.  The Arch Deacon must open his prophetic Christian mysticism to the J’Argon’s ancient earth-based magic and awaken his own adept power so that together they can defeat the Dragon.

    After 25 years as a legal secretary in Washington, D.C., Sea Raven moved to the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia in 2002.  She is now a volunteer chaplain with Hospice of the Panhandle in Martinsburg.  Her work as a free-lance writer, musician, and worship leader is grounded in post-modern Christian scholarship, and focused on justice, peace, and the integrity of creation.  Sea Raven holds a Doctor of Ministry in Creation Spirituality.  Her doctoral project, The Wheel of the Year:  A Worship Book for Creation Spirituality, provides worship experiences that spring from pre-Christian Celtic spirituality, post-modern cosmology, and the theology and four-path principles of Creation Spirituality as developed by Rev. Dr. Matthew Fox.  The project is published on her website along with a weekly blog (the original Liberal Christian Commentary).

    Sea Raven is an Associate of Westar (the Jesus Seminar); a board certified Associate Clinical Chaplain (College for Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy); and a designated Lay Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Frederick, Maryland.


  1. The National Cathedral? Prophetic? Even more mainline Protestant self-congratulation cloaked in self-pity? Do you seriously think anyone sane will be interested in any of this?
    You and the Fundiegelicals deserve each other.

  2. You do realize that by 2047 there will probably be about 10,000 Episcopalians left in the US, given the attendance and membership trends of the past 30 years?
    Why should I care if the National Cathedral (what a self-righteous and unconstitutional name, btw; don't we have the separation of church and state?) turns into a giant gothic chicken coop?
    The fastest growing segment of the US population is None of the Above. You and the Fundiegelicals deserve each other.
