The Affording Hope Project

Dear Friend in Faith:
The Affording Hope Project presents Leaps and Bounds, a one woman show which explores the intersection of faith, ecology, and the global economy. Using storytelling, song, movement, music, poetry and prayer, this work of theater sheds light on the driving factors of our environmental crisis while awakening the imagination to a new way of living with and relating to Earth. Grounded in theological reflection, this performance illuminates the quality of life available should we trust in God’s abundance and adopt the practices of Sabbath Economics.

Tevyn East, is producing and performing this work. Many gifted individuals, including Ched Myers and Carl Magruder, have contributed to make this a richly sensory and compelling production. To learn more about the collaborators, please visit the site.

The Affording Hope Project is being coordinated on a grass roots level and can thrive with the support of individuals and communities like you and yours. We want to work with every organization regardless of size or means. The show, Leaps and Bounds, is self-sufficient, traveling with its own set, lighting and sound equipment. Promotional material is available for download off the website to publicize the event. We have taken steps to make it easy for you to host this performance.
