On Being - Nadia Bolz-Weber on Seeing the Underside and Seeing God: Tattoos, Tradition, and Grace


Nadia Bolz-Weber was Krista Tippett's guest last week for the NPR On Being show. Nadia has a blog called the Sarcastic Lutheran: The cranky spirituality of a postmodern Gal, as well as a couple of books (links below). She is the mission developer for House for All Sinners and Saints (HFASS) in Denver, Colorado, an urban liturgical community with a progressive yet deeply-rooted theological imagination. 

This is a cool pastor - if I had a pastor like this when I was young, I would have been a lot more tolerant of religion.

Nadia Bolz-Weber on Seeing the Underside and Seeing God: Tattoos, Tradition, and Grace

September 5, 2013


She’s the tattooed, Lutheran pastor of the House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, a church where a chocolate fountain, a blessing of the bicycles, and serious liturgy come together. She's a face of the Emerging Church — redefining what church is, with deep reverence for tradition.
