Breaking The Mould

Meet Nadia Bolz-Weber, the body building, tattooed, stand-up comic pastor from Denver.

Tattoos, ‘salty’ language and alcoholism only partly sum up the life of Nadia Bolz-Weber, the pastor at the House for All Saints and Sinners in Denver, USA.

In the first of a three-part series Jane Little will meet Nadia, the body building, tattooed, stand-up comic Lutheran pastor from Denver to explore her faith and how her conservative Lutheran faith collides with and complements her belief that we are all sinners and the church should accept all areas of society through its doors.

Nadia is the first subject in a series which looks at faith leaders who represent a new generation, challenging the establishment within their faiths. You only have to follow Bolz-Weber to get an idea of her style of ministry, her Twitter name is @sarcasticluther, her ministry the House for All Sinners and Saints, is growing and she spends more and more time spreading her faith message across America.
