Accidental Saints

Home » News » Accidental Saints
AMC Nadia B-W

The Good Faith Book Club choice for our November 25th meeting is Accidental Saints. It is written by the heavily tattooed Lutheran pastor and best selling author, the very unconventional Nadia Bolz-Webber. She is the founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado.  Nadia has been featured in BBC World Service, The Washington Post, Bitch Magazine, NPR's Morning Edition, Fresh Air, More Magazine, The Daily Beast and on CNN.
The book blurb says, "In Accidental Saints, readers are offered a surprising encounter with what she calls 'a religious but not-so-spiritual life.' This unlikely priest 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, and a gun-toting member of the NRA."
So what will we make of all that? We'll find out on November 25th and you are welcome to find out with us.

Peter Green: Tue 19 Jan 12:00pm

"There are a lot of us out there — people who know what they SHOULD think about the Bible, but who actually think something quite different. We're told the Bible is the inspired word of God; then we read bits which are violent, disgusting or utterly weird. We're told it should fill us with joy and gratitude, only to encounter significant chunks that seem irrelevant, incomprehensible...
