Event Description

Peace, Pies and Prophets – Bluffton University

Peace Pies and Prophets is coming to Bluffton University at Yoder Recital Hall on January 18, 2016 at 7:00 pm! This event is sponsored by Bluffton University Campus Ministries, Peace Club, and the Damascus Road Anti-Racism Team, 1st Mennonite Church Bluffton and Lima Mennonite Church. Admission is free and open to the public. There will be a free will offering in addition to the auction of pies. All funds raised during the auction go to Christian Peacemaker Teams.

Peace, Pies and Prophets has been called a participatory wonder, a delicious blend of consciousness-raising and laughter, community-building at its best and just a whole lot of fun!

Since March 2012 Ted & Company has been collaborating with Christian Peacemaker Teams and various local peacemakers in the areas we’ve visited to bring the Peace Pies and Prophets tour to communities across the US and Canada, raising funds and awareness for peace. The evening includes the show I’d Like to Buy an Enemy and is interspersed with a pie auction.

The tour is a fundraiser for Christian Peacemaker Teams and has raised over $180,000 in offerings and pie auctions in since 2012. Perhaps more importantly it has gotten people talking not just about the show, but how we might effect change in our world—to “export” peacemaking to a thirsty world. Using storytelling, both the entertainment of the show itself and the stories of Christian Peacemakers Teams, challenges each of us to consider where we can promote change in our world, on a local and global scale.
