Courtney Perry hide caption itoggle caption Courtney Perry Lutheran Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber says that all are welcome at her Denver church, The House for All Sinners and Saints. Courtney Perry Lutheran pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber admits that she does not look — or act — like a typical church leader. But she was drawn to Lutheran theology, and when a group of friends asked her to give a eulogy for another friend who had committed suicide, Bolz-Weber discovered her calling. Bolz-Weber tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross that while addressing the crowd of "academics and queers and comics and recovering alcoholics" at the funeral, she realized: "These people don't have a pastor, and maybe that's what I'm supposed to do.

" After going to seminary, Bolz-Weber founded a church in Denver called The House for All Sinners and Saints. Interview Highlights Nobody ever meets me and guesses.

The 2015 ShortDocs Challenge: STUDS RULES As always, ShortDocs comes with a set of rules inspired by a creative partner. Terkel's work spanned an impressive variety of topics and figures - but his recordings have been largely inaccesible to the public.

We hope you'll be energized by Terkel's interview style, spirit, and wild curiousity - and then head in any direction you see fit. Studs rules...rules Your radio story must: - be two to three minutes in length - be titled with a question that begins with one of the five Ws (who, what, when, where or why) - contain the question "And what happened then?
