Event Description

Listening for Grace – Johnstown, PA

Ted Swartz's newest show, Listening for Grace, is coming to Stahl Mennonite Church, 1201 Soap Hollow Rd., Johnstown, PA on Saturday, February 21st at 7:00 pm. Admission is free and public is welcome.

In Listening for Grace, Ted Swartz uses his distinctive humor to give voice to our fears and hopes when a faith community engages in questions around sexuality and same-sex relationships. It’s about a father’s journey, a church’s struggle and a search for commonality.

Listening for Grace follows the story of a widowed father whose son has just come out as gay. Through his relationships with his son, an estranged cousin, people in his church and a pastor who deals with issues of sexuality in the Bible, the main character is challenged by many different viewpoints and experiences.

It’s a piece about church. It’s a piece about fatherhood. It’s a piece about community. It’s a piece about our sexuality. And it’s an entertaining and enlightening piece about openness and love.
