NADIA BOLZ-WEBER first hit the New York Times list with her 2013 memoir—the bitingly honest and inspiring Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint followed by the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller Accidental Saints in 2015. A former stand-up comic and a recovering alcoholic, Bolz-Weber is the founder and former pastor of a Lutheran congregation in Denver, House for All Sinners and Saints. She speaks at colleges and conferences around the globe.
Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint Wildly entertaining and deeply resonant, this is the book for people who hunger for a bit of hope that doesn’t come from vapid consumerism or navel-gazing; for women who talk too loud, and guys who love chick flicks; for the gay man who loves Jesus, and won’t allow himself to be shunned by the church. In short, this book is for every thinking misfit suspicious of institutionalized religion, but who is still seeking transcendence and mystery.
Will bring the 2019 Beyond These Walls MCC Lenten Series featuring the Pastrix in her message. When asked why Nadia Bolz-Weber, Pastor Susie replied, "Pastrix is not your traditional Lenten Series but it is a journey to rebirth and renewal that we can all relate to."
"She continued, "Nadia Bolz-Weber is a progressive Lutheran minister. Her method of story telling is meaningful and relevant."
Lenten Series begins Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at 7PM. If you can not attend you can watch this and every sermon on Beyond These Walls MCC facebook page.
