Event Description

Peace, Pies & Prophets – Portland, OR

Peace Pies and Prophets is on tour and coming to Portland Mennonite Church (1312 SE 35th AVE, Portland, OR 97214) on January 26 at 7:00pm. Admission to the event is FREE! 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. There will also be a free will offering for supporting Christian Peacemaker Teams. 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 Christian Peacemaker Teams exceeded $30,000! Watch the video recap of the tour.

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. Watch a preview of the show.
