Get in on the discussion

Lifetree Cafe welcomes everyone to conversations on issues of life and faith

Forgiveness, decision-making, confidence, racism, mental illness – these topics of interest are coming up for discussion at the new Lifetree Cafe, a short original film and conversation session that started this week and will continue on Mondays through October.

Lifetree Cafe is a free hour of “stories and conversations to feed the soul” guided by Brad Reid, pastor of Zion Baptist.

“It is not a church service but an opportunity to gather together, experience stories and talk about important issues of life and faith,” he said.

“However, different viewpoints and opinions are most definitely welcome.”

The hope is that meeting in a coffee shop will provide a more familiar atmosphere for people, added Reid.

Everyone is welcome. People can choose to join in on the discussion or just sit and listen, said Reid.

“One of the welcome signs used by Lifetree states ‘You’re welcome just as you are. Your thoughts are welcome. Your doubts are welcome. We’re all in this together. God is here, ready to connect with you in a fresh way,’” said Reid.

Lifetree Cafe is Mondays at 7-8 p.m. at the Elephants Ear, and for more information contact Brad at 638-1336 or
