Doors open @ 6:30 p.m. | Lecture @ 7 p.m. | Book Signing @ 8 p.m.
Nadia Bolz-Weber well lecture on her NY Times best seller, Shameless: A Sexual Reformation. This modern-day reverend calls for an inclusivity that empowers us to be loyal to people and, perhaps most important, ourselves. “Christianity is not a program for avoiding mistakes,” she writes. “It is a faith of the guilty.” With an alternative understanding of Scripture passages that have been weaponized against Christians for decades, Bolz-Weber reminds us that sexual flourishing can and should be for all genders, all bodies, and all humans. She shares stories, poetry, and Scripture that wage war on perpetual anxiety around sex by celebrating sexuality in all its forms and recognizing it for the gift that it is.
There will be a conversation that follows this lecture led by Rev. Karen Oliveto, the first lesbian bishop of the United Methodist Church
