Keynote Address by Nadia Bolz-Weber - Amherst
|Nadia Bolz-Weber has probably done more than any other pastor in recent times to poke therapeutic fun at the misdemeanors and flaws of overlychurched Christianity and Christians. The passion behind her words, however, is as deeply pastoral as it is God-drenched and liberating.... thus the affection as well as the respect that attend her and her work& wherever she goes. - Phyllis Tickle
Annual Meeting Keynote Open to the Public
Nobody really believes she’s an ordained pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. Maybe it’s the sleeve tattoos or the fact that she swears like a truck driver. Either way…Rev. Nadia Bolz-Weber is fine with it. And we think you will be too. In fact, we think lots of people will not only be fine with it, but will want to hear her speak ... so we are opening her keynote address to the public!
