Event Description

12 Baskets and a Goat – Staunton, VA

12 Baskets and a Goat is coming to Staunton, VA! Join us for a rousing time of theater, auction, and laughter on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 7:00 pm at Staunton Church of the Brethren, 1615 N. Coalter St., Staunton, VA.  Admission is $5 - visit stauntonbrethren.org for tickets. Come prepared to bid at the auction! Cash, checks, and credit cards will be accepted.

12 Baskets and a Goat is an invitation to participate in the “theology of the basket,” of enough for all, based on the Jesus story of feeding those 5,000 hungry ones. All they had was a few loaves and a few fishes in that basket. And the same miracle happens when people share and give. The event focuses on the original play, The Jesus Stories: Faith, Forks & Fettuccine, written by Ted Swartz and Jeff Raught, with music by Jeff. The good-news stories of Jesus with people around food and tables, landscapes and baskets, calls us to that same sharing and compassion.

The play is interrupted at two intervals to auction off home-made baskets of bread and Heifer farm animals. All proceeds from the auction benefit the good work of Heifer International alleviating poverty around the world.

FUN, interactive, participatory, great music, laughter, and food for thought. Join us!
