Join us for our first Community Outreach Project titled, Dialogues on Grace. For a $50 donation, you will receive drinks, appetizers, a sneak preview of some of the documented interviews that were filmed and many thanks! For a $100 donation, you will receive all of the above, plus your name will be listed in the Dialogues on Grace program brochure under “Thanking our $100 donors!”

Inspired by the anti-Muslim sentiment in our country, 14 Pews is producing, Dialogues on Grace, a 75-minute Documentary Theater Play. Source material for this insightful theatrical production comes from news articles and interviews of over 50 Houstonians of all faiths, asking their views on grace; what it means, what it looks like, could one have grace without subscribing to a religion, and an example of grace. In addition, we will also cover topics about the anti-Muslim sentiment; what it means, what it looks like, and examples of this very current issue. The goal of Dialogues on Grace is to celebrate our similarities, while recognizing and accepting our differences. Like most Documentary Theater, Dialogues on Grace is attempting to bridge art and politics while being a catalyst for social change.

Dialogues on Grace will be performed with a live music accompaniment 9/10/15 – 10/4/15. To insure that the play will be seen by a wide audience, the show will be performed at numerous locations around Houston.
We have already received a great outpouring of community support and have 7 advisors; Sr. Minister Reverend Laura Mayo (Senior Minister at Covenant Baptist Church), Dr. Anthony Pinn (Professor of Religious Studies, Rice University), Dr. Lawrence DiPaolo (Associate Dean of the School of Theology at St. Thomas University), Sr. Pastor Reverend Ernie Turney (Sr. Pastor at Bering Memorial United Methodist Church), Dr. Bill Ferris (former chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Senior Director of the Center for the Study of the American South, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) Imam Mubasher Ahmad (Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Houston) and Rabbi Laura Sheinkopf.
