Play about Relationships, Sexuality, & the Church: Sept. 15
In Listening for Grace, Ted Swartz uses his distinctive humor to give voice to our fears and hopes when a faith community engages in questions around sexuality and same-sex relationships. It’s about a father’s journey, a church’s struggle and a search for commonality.
Listening for Grace follows the story of a widowed father whose son has just come out as gay. Through his relationships with his son, an estranged cousin, people in his church and a pastor who deals with issues of sexuality in the Bible, the main character is challenged by many different viewpoints and experiences.
It’s a piece about church. It’s a piece about fatherhood. It’s a piece about community. It’s a piece about our sexuality. And it’s an entertaining and enlightening piece about openness and love.
Tickets will be required and are FREE; sign up in the gathering area and pick up a ticket from the office. The play is generously underwritten by Room for All. There will be a panel discussion afterwards that Hope Church member Jim Brownson will be a part of.
