Tattoos & Saints

Home » News » Tattoos & Saints

This Saturday, 25th November, at 2pm, The Good Faith Book Club will be discussing our latest book choice. This is called Accidental Saints and is about finding God in all the wrong people. The best-selling author is the Lutheran pastor, Nadia Bolz-Weber, colourful in tattoo and language. One critic described the book as, "a collection of stories about how liturgy (who would have imagined?, ritual (what?), church (really?) and a bunch of flawed people (like us?) can catch the light of grace and catch fire with the beauty of God." He added, "For so many reasons, you should read it." If you care to join the Aylesbury jury on this one, you will be very welcome. The kettle will be on.
