Luther College celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 with a year full of events on campus.

On the evening of Friday, March 31, the popular and thought-provoking Nadia Bolz-Weber, author and pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, will deliver a plenary address in which she presents her vision of the role of the church in broader society as that vision connects to its Reformation roots.

Rev. Nadia Bolz-Weber is "unforgettable, hilarious, insightful, ironic, and Lutheran..." (Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity). The former standup comic turned ordained ELCA pastor is the founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado, and the author of the best-selling theological memoir, Pastrix: The Cranky Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint (2013) and New York Times best seller, Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People (2015).
