Peace, Pies & Prophets

Peace, Pies and Prophets is on tour and coming to the First Presbyterian Church (2619 Broadway, Oakland) on February 1st at 7:00 PM.  Suggested donation of $12 (no one turned away due to lack of funds) will benefit Christian Peacemaker Teams and the Positive Peace Warrior Network.

Centered around a live performance of "I'd Like to Buy an Enemy," starring Ted & Company actors 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 peace building work.

The tour kicked off spring of 2012 with six shows across eastern PA and the Midwest, where volunteers baked 300 pies and raised over $30,000 for peace work!

If you would like to bake us a pie or volunteer at the event, please email
