Diversity & Social Justice Education

Nadia Bolz-Weber is an ordained Lutheran Pastor, founder of House for All Sinners & Saints in Denver, CO, the creator and host of The Confessional and the author of three New York Times bestselling memoirs: Pastrix; The Cranky, Beautiful Faith Of A Sinner & Saint, Accidental Saints; Finding God In All The Wrong People, and Shameless. She writes and speaks about personal failings, recovery, grace, faith, and really whatever the hell else she wants to. She always sits in the corner with the other weirdoes.

Nadia will speak about her latest book, Shameless: A Case for Not Feeling Bad About Feeling Good (About Sex), which reclaims the conversation around sexuality, shame, and desire for a new generation of believers. In her talks, she explores spirituality and faith; friendship and community; life purpose and activism; self-care, shame, and the body; recovery and self-awareness; sex and intimacy; health and wellness; and leadership and authority.
