From time to time, Trinity Cathedral has hosted guest speakers from many walks of life. Their voices and stories have informed and inspired audiences for a number of years. In the recent past, we have made it a practice to video their presentations (with the speaker’s permission), and have now begun to post them here, on the Trinity website. Hopefully, these videos will continue to inform and inspire viewers to our website community.

Please note that the use of these videos without proper permission is prohibited by copyright laws in the United States.

Nadia Bolz-Weber Friday, February 23, 2018

Come see this sleeve tattooed, salty ELCA pastor speaks authentic truths to the broken places in our lives.

Rev. Nadia Bolz-Weber is the founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado. Is she the author of Salvation on the Small Screen? 24 Hours of Christian Television (Seabury 2008) and the New York Times Bestselling theological memoir, Pastrix: The Cranky Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint (Jericho 2013). Her writings can be found in the Christian Century, The Lutheran Magazine and Nadia has been featured in The Washington Post, Bitch Magazine, NPR’s Morning Edition, More Magazine, The Daily Beast and on CNN.

Nobody really believes she’s an ordained pastor in the ELCA. Maybe it’s the sleeve tattoos or the fact that she swears like a truck driver. Either way…she’s fine with it. Nadia lives in Denver with her family of 4 where she can be found writing bios in the third person, lifting weights and walking her Great Dane, Zacchaeus.

Ticket sales for this event will take place later this fall and will be available for purchase through the Trinity web page.  Once tickets go on sale, this will be announced in the e-news, bulletin and Sunday morning announcements.  Be sure to purchase your tickets early, because it will likely sell out.
