Nadia and Richard

 Never once did Jesus scan the room for the best example of holy living and send that person out to tell others about him. He always sent stumblers and sinners. I find that comforting.’ Nadia Bolz-Weber, Accidental Saints

We all know that saints are dead and respectable.  But St Paul called all the people of God saints whether they were behaving like saints, sinners or something much more ordinary.  What if God is showing us the glory, the grace and the transformative love of his presence in the people who happen to be there, whether we like it – and them – or not?  And could it possibly be that God is calling us to be saints as well, however unlikely that seems?

Nadia Bolz-Weber and Richard Coles are two of the freshest voices in contemporary Christianity and will reflect on what a life of sanctity might be in the 21st century.

Nadia Bolz-Weber is a Lutheran Pastor and the founder of the House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado.  A former stand-up comedian, she is the author of the best selling books Cranky Beautiful Faith and Accidental Saints: Finding God in all the Wrong People (both Canterbury Press).

Richard Coles is the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live and the only priest in the Church of England to have had a No 1 hit single. Formerly a member of The Communards, he is now Vicar of Finedon, Northamptonshire and the author of the bestselling memoirFathomless Riches: Or How I Went from Pop to Pulpit (W&N) and Lives of the Improbable Saints (DLT). 

The event will include plenty of time for questions and answers. 

There will be a BSL interpreter at this event.
