Laughter is Sacred Space
Saturday, September 23, 2017
in the Sanctuary
In this gritty and dramatic play, Ted Swartz walks us through his relationship with friend and business partner, Lee Eshleman, who took his own life in 2007. Ted explores the paradox of working with a comedic partner struggling with bipolar disorder, as well as the challenge of writing and performing stories about God while experiencing the absence of God after Lee’s death.
Using multi-media and his twenty years of storytelling experience, Laughter is Sacred Space is honest, funny and vulnerable, and reveals the unique journey of working as a comedic actor under the shadow of a mental illness, and offers hope and humor in a way that only Ted could deliver.
Doors Open at 6:30pm.

We are headed to Mexico for our 6th Annual house building trip with i6eight
Ministries in Rocky Point (Puerto Peñasco), Mexico. Each year we carve
out a weekend for us as a community to go down together and not only
build a home for a family, but to build relationships with people in the
community there and strengthen relationships among the group that goes.
This is an intergenerational trip; we’ve had people come along from toddlers and teenagers to, well, those wonderful people who probably won’t have to take a day off from school…or work :) EVERY participant who comes plays a crucial role in the trip, not only will we all swing hammers, cut wood, and paint, but we spend intentional time in community with different people we meet. We need YOU!
