Event Description

Peace, Pies & Prophets – Colorado Springs, CO

Peace, Pies and Prophets is on tour and coming to Colorado Springs, CO! Sponsored by RAWTools and Beth-El Mennonite Church, the show will be held at Beth-El Mennonite, 625 Ranch Drive, Colorado Springs, CO on September 11, 2015 at 7:00 pm. Admission is free and open to the public. Pie auction proceeds and a free will offering will benefit Christian Peacemaker Teams and RAWtools.

Centered around a live performance of I’d Like to Buy an Enemy, starring Ted Swartz and Tim Ruebke, the show unpacks issues of justice and peace building through humorous and poignant storytelling.

This interactive event is for people interested in engaging in laughter, thoughtful dialogue and pie. Yes, Peace Pies... The evening includes a hand crafted pie auction where pie sale proceeds will go toward the support of Christian Peacemaker Teams. In the last three years, Peace Pies and Prophets toured across North America, raising over $183,000 for CPT!

In this hilarious and poignant satire we find a talking banana sharing his personal story about fair trade practices, witness the brain responding using both its rational and impulse-driven parts, and are welcomed into the shop of a persuasive salesperson who insists on our need to buy an enemy to ensure “optimistic living and comfortable maintenance of the American Dream.”
