Six events, Two sermons, One interview – in four days!  It was a whirl-wind Northwest book tour for Nadia, but she totally killed it.  New fans snowballed with every stop on the tour remarking, “We have a new Anne Lamott”!

It’s likely that God wont bless you with massive wealth for ‘planting your love seed’ by buying Nadia’s book… you’ll actually be a little bit poorer, but hey, it’s a good read.  So take a listen and/or buy the book.  You can also hear Nadia’s sermon at Church of the Beloved on 1|18|09 here.

Event: Salvation on the Small Screen?

JAN 18th  +  7pm  +  Rosewood Manor 8104 220th st sw Edmonds

Church of the Beloved Presents : Nadia Bolz-Weber

Nadia Bolz-Weber will be giving some hilarious readings from her new book Salvation on the Small Screen? that chronicles her experiment of watching 24 consecutive hours of cable televangelism-prosperity gospel fare on Trinity Broadcasting Network.  28 contributors, including Bible Scholars from Iliff School of Theology, a gay Unitarian, her non-religious ex-boyfriend, a couple Jews, her Evangelical parents, Lutheran pastors and her 9 year old daughter all joined Nadia for an hour each so that the book becomes a conversation between what’s happening on the TV, what’s happening on the sofa, and what’s happing in the writer’s head.  The result is a narrative which is frequently hysterical, often insightful and occasionally totally surprising.

“Turn off your TV and read this book. It’s enlightening and entertaining and
it doesn’t emit any radiation whatsoever.”
–AJ Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically

Music by Tara Ward.  Wine and Cheese reception.  This event is free for you.
