Speaker: Shameless Book Tour with Nadia Bolz-Weber

  • St. John's UMC 2019 Crawford Street Houston, TX 77002 United States (map)

On February 19th, 2019, at 7 PM, Nadia Bolz-Weber is coming to St. John's United Methodist Church in Houston, TX to share from her new and most personal book Shameless: A Sexual Reformation (Convergent, Hardcover, January 29, 2019)

In her latest release, Bolz-Weber is out to slay a giant by going after the church’s teachings on human sexuality. She deftly weaves narrative, history, scripture, and wit together to show how Christianity has so often turned the glorious gift of our bodies into something ugly and shameful, telling us that true holiness equates to sexual repression— “as if the God of the Universe had programmed into creation a passive-aggressive test of our willpower.”

Join Nadia for a lively evening of truth-telling, conversation, humor, healing and maybe a short dance party as she proposes "...a sexual reformation for those who have been hurt...for those who have done the hurting...and for those who are certain they know all there is to know about what God thinks of sex.” Also on stage for a conversation with Nadia will be Rozella White.
