religion and tattoos can go hand in hand

My Saturday morning ritual (a huge breakfast and a weekend edition of my fav newspaper) turned out really nice today when I saw that a very cool tattooed female pastor was featured on the main cover of the weekend extra! Nadia Bolz-Weber appeared in some American articles I linked to on here but never in a Polish one, so it’s a real treat!

The interview with her is very interesting and shows Christianity as an evolving and open religion that embraces instead of ostracizing and that’s exactly the kind of religion I could follow. Nadia Bolz-Weber seems a very self-confident, strong and open-minded woman and I really admire her for that! You can get a small sample of her style in this video:

Nadia Bolz-Weber published a book based on her own story, so once it’s here and I’m done with reading it, I’ll make sure to post a review on here!

I actually love that there seem to be many ways of approaching God(s) and religion(s). Living in a country when one ultra-conservative religion dominates the public discussion on what’s right and wrong is quite difficult, especially if you prefer to think for yourself and try to find your own path to God and spirituality. In this article about a local pastor’s joke on tattoos and the way it turned out for his church members you find both spirituality and a sense of humor (who said God doesn’t have it?). I don’t think it would be possible in my country yet but who knows what’s in store for us in the future?
