Meet the Blogger

Victoria Emily JonesMy name is Victoria Emily Jones. I live in the Baltimore area, where I work as a freelance copyeditor and proofreader. My educational background is in journalism, English literature, and music history.

I’m somewhat of a Book Monster (me want books!); I love reading, so I read whatever I can get my hands on.

I was raised in a Christian home, but it wasn’t until the summer of 2000 that I became a Christian myself—that is, when I made the conscious decision to live for Jesus Christ. I don’t affiliate with any one denomination, but I do embrace Protestant theology and currently attend a Presbyterian church.

If you’d like to contact me, I’m at victoria.emily.jones@gmail.com.

  1. I love your blog so much I’ve added you to my blogroll. I invite you to do the same with mine. http://www.alphaomegaarts.blogspot.com

    You mentioned that you consider yourself a Protestant rather then a Catholic. How important is that distinction to you and why? I’ve looked at your blog and find it interesting. I am a practicing Catholic, by my own choice, however I do not disregard others ways to believe in Jesus and God our Creator. I have a feeling that there is much more to our faith that currently escapes our attention and comprehension. That may be the reason why we are still looking for more explicit understanding of our faiths.

  4. Hi Richard,

    Thank you very much for taking the time to engage me in discussion on this topic. Your question is thoughtful–it forced me to pause and consider why, when my tendency is to eschew labels, I insist on keeping this one. Because I want to draw others into the conversation (and because pith is not my strong suit), I’ve used your question as the basis of a new post: https://thejesusquestion.org/2012/11/15/why-i-call-myself-a-protestant/. I hope you follow up with me there.

    Hi Victoria,
    I like what you do with art related to faith… and the name of your blog makes me think of a Bible verse where Jesus asks his followers who they say he is (Mk 8, 29). I like the way Jesus lets us answer that question: faith is somehow always a response to that same question, who is he to us?
    Keep up the good work!

    In Christ,
    Alexandre Winter, reformed pastor in Geneva

    Hello Victoria,

    It was a pleasure coming across your blog today and the precious pictures of you as a bride washing your new husband’s feet. Your humility is beautiful and your desire to serve him with the correct view that you are not superior to him is admirable. (All of us should view ourselves this way toward our fellow man/woman).

    You seem to be seeking a deeper expression of Christianity… let me share that I was brought up Protestant and remained Christian, but learned about Orthodox Christianity 3 years ago, loved it, adopted it, and officially became an Orthodox Christian last year on Pentecost (23 June 2013). It is what we Protestants have been missing out on all this time and never knew it. It is the original, fullness of the faith delivered directly from Christ to His disciples. It is a full, rich, vast and immensely wonderful find. I am richly blessed to have had God introduce me to His original Faith the way its meant to be believed and applied and have me worship in His holy temple, participating as a member, like I longed to do since 2 years prior.

    You are interested in religious art – Their “art” is their icons. Icons of saints, Christ Himself, His holy mother, angels, feasts/fasts/festivals/occasions, and we reverence them without worshiping them (which would be idolatrous). Like a long hike whose view unravels wider and more wondrous, is Orthodox Christianity – the true faith.

    An introductory article would be this simple suggestion: a 30 minute interview-version:

    Cheers, and so nice to meet you!

  7. Loved the 7 Part series on Northwest Coastal Art. It came to my attention through the Visual Meditation on ArtWay. I had to read the rest of the posts.

  8. Hi sister! It’s awesome to see such passion in your research. Sometime it would be good to interview you and promote your work here on the Fringe Radio Network where I am currently podcasting… When I was in a liberal university in the States it seemed any time I saw anything titled “The Jesus Question” or “Jesus Sutras” or whatever it was always promoted in a Gnostic fashion. It’s good to see real Christians taking back this ground. I have gobs and gobs of unreleased Jesus art that I’m pretty sure you’ve never seen, and would be happy to share with you sometime if you’re interested. Blessings!!
