Pastrix: The Cranky Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint
by Nadia Bolz Weber

Contemporary Literature Group

Every Other Tuesday @ 9:00 – 10:30 am

via Zoom  (NEW)

Led by Jane Hein

Foul-mouthed and heavily tattooed, former standup comic-turned-Lutheran pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber weaves hilarious rants and stunning theological insight into her personal narrative of a flawed, beautiful, and unlikely life of faith.  This book club discussion group will invite participants to be reminded how real life intersects with religion through memoirs of the  author that are wildly entertaining, hopeful and faith-building.

Copies of the book can be purchased on Amazon or goodreads.com.

Join the group every other Tuesday morning @ 9 am ET via Zoom.  

Questions can be directed to the church office at office@trinitywexford.org.
