Comedian Ted Swartz (Harrisonburg, Va.) will present the show “Didn’t You Get My Letter? Musings from the Apostle Paul” at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 22, at Hesston Mennonite Church on the Hesston College campus.
In the hour-long one-man show, Swartz presents the Apostle Paul as a man often misunderstood. Through Paul’s encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus to his sometimes contentious relationship with Peter and his frustrations with the followers of Jesus – the church, the audience will be able to feel Paul’s passion, pains, doubts and unshakable belief in the church and the power of love.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and can be purchased in advance through the Hesston College Bookstore by calling 620-327-8105 or at the door prior to the performance.
Ted & Company TheaterWorks uses humor and professional storytelling to talk about issues of faith and social justice.
Hesston College is hosting the event in conjunction with its annual Anabaptist Vision and Discipleship Series (AVDS) conference Feb. 21 to 23. The theme for 2014 is “Reading the Bible in an Instagram World” and will explore the relevancy of the Bible and making it come alive in today’s world. The college’s famed Biblical Literature course, and the cornerstone of the class, the Heilsgeschichte, or Salvation History, will be presented throughout the weekend.
Along with Swartz, weekend presenters are Hesston College Bible and ministry instructors Marion Bontrager and Michele Hershberger, and worship leader Jeremy Kempf (Glendale, Ariz.).
