Feb 23: A Cranky, Beautiful Faith

0223 Pastrix Holz-WeberA seriously irreverent book study? It must be a Night Out with God and the Girls!

Pastrix: the Cranky Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint by Nadia Bolz-Weber is a rather unusual memoir, or more accurately, the memoir of a person with a very unconventional faith. We’ll be diving into this book over the next few get-togethers.

Nadia Bolz-Weber never saw herself as a religious person. She was a heavily-tattooed and foul-mouthed person who had been a stand-up comic. Then one day she found herself presiding at a friend’s funeral in a smoky comedy club, and something changed in her. This was no church, but the people within – the addicts, misfits and cynics – were her people, her community.

This book tells how one woman followed a calling – the calling for a deeply flawed person to a deeply faithful life – and shows us a most vivid example of God’s grace flourishing in a place that we least expect.

God and the Girls will be meeting on Friday, February 23 at 7:00 p.m, at a location to be announced. Please RSVP to Laura at lpeetoom@sjym.ca if you are coming so that we can plan refreshments, or if you need to obtain a copy of the book.
