WELCOME! Beginning this fall we will take a very interesting journey together as we read a book by a dear friend of Pastor Rob's, Barry Taylor! 


The book? Sex, God, and Rock n’ Roll. This book will lead us into all kinds of discussions on faith, culture, God, sex…well, the list really could go on and on.


Barry is an extraordinary guy with a past that includes touring with a world-famous rock band where he found religion. Then he became a theologian, priest, teacher and theist-non-theist-post-theist. We will even try to get Barry to join us via ZOOM once or twice from London to share and answer questions you may have (including what in the world a “theist-non-theist-post-theist” is!

Nadia Bolz-Weber is a former standup-comic-turned-pastor with tattoos and a potty mouth. She stubbornly (sometimes hilariously) resists the God she feels called to serve, but God keeps showing up in the least likely of people: a church-loving agnostic, a drag queen, a felonious Bishop and a gun-toting member of the NRA. As she lives and worships alongside these “ac­cidental saints,” Nadia is swept into first-hand en­counters with grace. 


This book is going to challenge us to find sacredness in unexpected places and people. It’s going to make us rethink our assumptions about what “sacredness” even is. Please register to join us as we read Accidental Saints together and discuss it over Zoom.
