Author and ordained pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) Nadia Bolz-Weber will give a public lecture on Tuesday, February 11 at the Wake Forest University School of Divinity.  She will speak about her theologcial memoir, Pastrix: the Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner and Saint. The lecture is open to the public and will begin at 7:00pm in Wait Chapel on the Wake Forest campus. No tickets or reservations are required.

Bolz-Weber is the founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado, a mission church of the ELCA.

Bolz-Weber has been featured in The Washington Post, NPR’s Morning Edition, The Daily Beast, and on CNN. She also blogs at www.sarcasticlutheran.com and Jim Wallis’ www.godspolitics.com.

“Nadia Bolz-Weber has probably done more than any other pastor in recent times to poke therapeutic fun at the misdemeanors and flaws of overly-churched Christianity and Christians,” says Phyllis Tickle, a noted authority on religion in America. “The passion behind her words, however, is as deeply pastoral as it is God-drenched and liberating.”
