Pop-up Book Studies of Nadia Bolz-Weber’s books

Sunday, January 27: Pastrix – What does “pastrix” mean? And who is Nadia Bolz-Weber? Join us for a pop-up book study of her book, Pastrix, on Sunday, January 27 at 11am in Calkins Hall.

Sunday, February 24: Accidental Saints – In Accidental Saints, Bolz-Weber invites readers into a surprising encounter with what she calls “a religious but not-so-spiritual life.” She stubbornly, sometimes hilariously, resists the God she feels called to serve. But God keeps showing up in the least likely of people—a church-loving agnostic, a drag queen, a felonious Bishop and a gun-toting member of the NRA. As she lives and worships alongside these “ac­cidental saints,” Nadia is swept into first-hand en­counters with grace—a gift that feels to her less like being wrapped in a warm blanket and more like being hit with a blunt instrument. All are welcome to attend this conversation on Sunday, February 24 at 11am in Calkins Hall.

Lenten Book Study of Nadia’s latest book, “Shameless”
