Event Description

Listening for Grace – State College, PA

Ted Swartz will present his newest show on sexuality and the church, Listening for Grace, at 7:00 pm on December 6, 2014 at University Mennonite Church (1606 Norma St) in State College, PA.

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.
