Event Description

Listening for Grace – Grand Rapids, MI

Listening for Grace is coming to Grand Rapids, MI on September 18, 2016 at 3:30 pm for a special showing at Eastern Avenue Christian Reformed Church, 514 Eastern Ave SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503. Sponsored by Room for All.

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.

The play 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.

You may find your story mirrored in one of the characters, calling the Church, and one another, to openness and love.
