Event Description

Peace, Pies & Prophets – Oakland, CA

Peace Pies and Prophets is on tour and coming to First Presbyterian Church of Oakland (2619 Broadway, Oakland, CA) on February 1 at 7:00pm. Suggested donation $12 to benefit Christian Peacemaker Teams and Positive Peace Warrior Network. 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 and Positive Peace Warrior Network.

The tour kicked off spring 2012 with six shows across eastern Pennsylvania and the Midwest, surpassing expectations of organizers. Volunteers donated almost 300 pies and the total amount raised for peace exceeded $30,000!

This event gives participants an opportunity to engage in the ongoing story of God's restorative work in our world and our neighborhood. It is an event that speaks across denominations, generations and backgrounds, for people who aim to be the change we seek.
