Week 1 : Day 3 : Nadia Bolz-Weber

Nadia Bolz-Weber / Tattoos, Tradition, and Grace

I like this interview for the thoughts on Identity.

  • Who am I?
  • What is truly important to me?
  • What makes me, me?

The unedited interview is worth the extra time. Once you know who you are and what’s important to you, then it’s easier to make choices about what to do. The things that support me and the people who support me get to come inside the fence. The things and people who do not can stay out. She started life “in church”, ventured way out in her search for herself and came back on her own terms. That she came back to church isn’t the important part, but rather after she worked it out she decided where she needed to be and how she needed to be.

“I had no idea that if I hung out long enough, I would be mainstream”

If you listen to this woman and want more, nadiabolzweber.com.

After listening to her story, whether you share her faith or not, what do feel?

What has been your experience of that disruption, of that “divine heart transplant”, of starting over?

How has your experience of starting over colored your worldview and your view of yourself?

Has anyone ever been a good enough friend to not sympathize, but rather call you out in empathy?
