House For All Sinners and Saints

The House For All Sinners & Saints

Is an Evangelical Lutheran Church in Denver Colorado, the "Pastrix" (a title she has adopted from those who don't think women should be pastors) is Nadia Bolz-Weber and her memoir Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint is a New York Times bestseller.  With the liturgical calendar tattooed on one arm and Mary Magdalene from the St Alban's Psalter on the other, along with a mouth like a truck driver she is not your stereotypical  pastor.



Setting aside politics and theology if you can, for this isn't a post about either, what do you think of her presentation? Her Outreach? For wherever she seems to go she generates controversy and interest in religion. Her congregation spans all aspects of society from ex-felons to state legislators, and she has injected reality into what in many cases for many denominations, can be a stodgy institution.

While we may disagree on politics and theology, I like her and I like what she's doing to the point of, in atypical fashion, I watched the entire hour long interview with her on On Being

For the curious, some of her sermons can be found here:
