“Finding God in All the Wrong People”
with Nadia Bolz-Weber
Wednesday, October 3, 2018 | 7 – 8:30 p.m. | Old St. Patrick’s Church Community Hall at 625 W. Adams Street | Chicago, Illinois | Admission: $10
Rev. Nadia Bolz-Weber invites you into a surprising encounter with what she calls “a religious but not-so-spiritual life.” This former standup comic turned pastor stubbornly, sometimes hilariously, resists the God she feels called to serve. But God keeps showing up in the least likely of people. As she lives and worships alongside these “accidental saints,” Nadia is swept into first-hand encounters with grace – a gift that feels to her less like being wrapped in a warm blanket and more like being hit with a blunt instrument. Won’t you please join us for an evening of storytelling with the Lutheran pastor at the House for All Sinners and Saints, Nadia Bolz-Weber.
Reservations are required. Please reserve your place by registering online here. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Limited free parking is available in the parking structure adjacent to the 625 W. Adams Street office tower.
“My job is to point to Christ and to preach the Gospel and to remind people that they’re absolutely loved … and all of their mess-ups are not more powerful than God’s mercy.”
– NADIA BOLZ-WEBER
