Whether guardian angels really exist will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe, 1110 Campus Drive, Suite C.
Participants will view an exclusive filmed interview with a woman who claims her life was saved by an angel encounter, and they'll have the opportunity to share stories of their own experiences with angels.
"Some studies show that more than half of all adults believe in guardian angels," said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. "We'll look at the evidence and consider why, if it's true guardian angels exist, they seem to protect some people and not others."
Admission to the 60-minute event, titled "My Angel Saved Me," is free. Snacks and beverages are available.
Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Cable at (970) 292-4697 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
