Event Description

The Big Story – Spruce Lake Retreat

Coming to Spruce Lake Retreat in Canadensis, PA, Ted Swartz will present his show The Big Story on July 8 as part of Family Week.

This dramatic, one-man show combines scripture, story, and humor, bringing biblical characters to life in unexpected and entertaining ways.

Ted is a theologian of a different sort. Both theater and seminary trained, he has found a unique and entertaining discovery; at the intersection of humor and biblical story is often a greater understanding of the text. Or, at the very least, a different understanding. It’s “comedic exegesis.” When we allow ourselves to laugh, we open up the possibility of experiencing God’s grace and accepting the truth of our lives more courageously.

Fun fact: Ted & Company first started in 1987 as the comedy duo Ted & Lee, as they found themselves teaming up to write several short pieces for a youth leaders retreat at Spruce Lake!
