The Parish Resource Center will present An Evening with Nadia Bolz-Weber, from 7 to 8:15 p.m., April 28, at Lampeter Strasburg High School’s Performing Arts Center, in Lancaster. Lutheran pastor and bestselling author Bolz-Weber will give an inspiring presentation about her own faith journey and her vision for the changing church.
Bolz-Weber is the founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints, an Evangelical Lutheran Church of America congregation in Denver, Colorado. As a recovering addict, Bolz-Weber has created a congregation that is open to those struggling with addiction, as well as persons who are uncomfortable in traditional churches.
She wrote the New York Times bestsellers Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People, and Pastrix: the Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint, as well as Salvation on the Small Screen? 24 Hours of Christian Television.
Heavily tattooed and known to use profane language, she is passionate about taking a different approach to church and Christianity. Historian, scholar and writer Diana Butler Bass says Bolz-Weber is part of the “new Reformation”.
