Listening for Grace

Listening for Grace

Listening for Grace, written and performed by Ted Swartz, with piano and cello performances by Phillip De Luna and Justin Yoder, is a funny, powerful, poignant performance giving voice to our fears and hopes when a faith community engages in questions around same sex relationships. A heart-felt story that mirrors the complexity and love of the Christian church. A father’s journey, a church’s struggle, a search for commonality.

Quotes from audience members:

“As churches have sought to address sexuality, they’ve tried discussions, debates, conflict mediation and other forms of conversation. Ted’s show adds art – both drama and music – into the mix… I wish every North American congregation had the opportunity to be inspired transformed, and even healed by Listening for Grace.”

“It was so healing to see Ted’s show…it breaks through polity and staunch positions, and brings it to relationship. It is deeply compassionate.”

“Caring, compassionate, compelling presentation tonight… What an amazing contribution to the conversation!”

The play runs about 70 minutes and includes live music.
