Duration 2 hours
Peace, Pies and Prophets is on tour now and coming to Park View Mennonite Church (1600 College Ave., Harrisonburg, VA) on November 18 at 7:00pm. Ticket prices are $12, $10 for students and seniors (60+), 6 & under free. Ted & Company players are bringing a live performance of Iâ€™d Like to Buy an Enemy for this one night event. The show unpacks issues of justice and peace building through humorous and poignant storytelling.
This interactive event is for people interested in engaging in laughter, thoughtful dialogue and pie. Yes, Peace Pies… The evening includes a hand crafted pie auction where 100% of pie sales will go toward the support of local peace and reconciliation work. The proceeds to this show will benefit EMU’s Center for Interfaith Engagement and the Fairfield Center of Harrisonburg. The tour kicked off spring 2012 with six shows across eastern Pennsylvania and the Midwest, surpassing expectations of organizers. Volunteers donated almost 300 pies and the total amount raised for peace exceeded $30,000!
This event gives participants an opportunity to engage in the ongoing story of God’s restorative work in our world and our neighborhood. It is an event that speaks across denominations, generations and backgrounds, for people who aim to be the change we seek.

â€œTed and Company remind us; laughter is a prophetic art, â€˜loving our enemyâ€™ is a fine art, and critical-thinking is [too often] a lost art. â€Iâ€™d Like to Buy an Enemyâ€ is not simply a lament of how much fear has yet to be cast out of our cultures, itâ€™s a call to lovingly exorcise this fear from ourselves and our world, by laughing at it!â€——Jarrod McKenna, Australian Peace Award Recipient
