Ted & Company are on tour now and coming to Bethesda Mennonite Church on Saturday, February 9, at 7:00 p.m. Â Ted & Company players are bringing a live performance of “I’d Like to Buy an Enemy” for this one night event as part of their Peace, Pie, and Prophets tour. Â 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. Â Yes, Peace Pies. Â The evening includes a hand-crafted pie auction where 100% of pie sales will go toward the support ofÂ ChristianÂ Peacemaker Teams. Â There will also be a freewill offering during the pie social afterwards with all proceeds going toward Christian Peacemaker Teams. Â The tour kicked off Spring 2012 with six shows across eastern Pennsylvania and the Midwest, surpassing expectations of organizers. Â Volunteers donated almost 300 pies and the total amount raised for Christian Peacemaker Teams 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. Â It is an event that speaks across denominations, generations, and backgrounds for people who aim to be the change we seek. Â Find a preview of the showÂ hereÂ and a recap of the first leg ofÂ the tourÂ hereÂ or go on the Ted & Company website:Â www.tedandcompany.com.
“Ted and Company remind us; laughter is a prophetic art, ‘loving our enemy’ is a fine art, and critical-thinking is [too often] a lost art. Â “I’d Like to Buy an Enemy” is not simply a lament of how much fear has yet to be cast our of our cultures, it’s a call to lovingly exercise this fear from ourselves and our world, by laughing at it!” –Jarrod McKenna, Australian Peace Award Recipient
