#var:page_name# cover

I'd Like to Buy an Enemy, written by Ted Swartz and performed by Ted Swartz and Tim Ruebke, is coming to First Mennonite Church Champaign/Urbana, 902 W Springfield Ave, Urbana, IL on Sunday, May 13, 2018 at 4:00 pm. Admission is free and open to the public and childcare provided. Donations accepted. For more information contact office@fmc-cu.org.

A hilarious and poignant satire from Ted & Co, exploring peace, justice, and the American way, this thought-provoking show allows us to laugh at ourselves, while engaging us to reflect on the influence of America's highly militarized presence in the world, to confront the fear that drives our culture, and to consider how we can work for peace and justice in the U.S. and globally.

Discussion will follow the performance after a short break for those interested in providing feedback about the play. Participation will help generate conversation about the gifts and challenges inherent in understanding faith traditions that are different from our own, and will help incorporate new material into the show related to issues of racism and religious intolerance.
