Program to focus on same-sex marriage
Issues relating to same-sex marriage will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe, 1110 Campus Drive, Suite C.
The program, titled "Same Sex Marriage: When Rights, Morals and Love Collide," provides an opportunity to discuss how same-sex marriages are impacting society and how people are responding to the growing presence of same-sex marriages.
"This topic often prompts confrontation, not conversation," said Craig Cable, a Lifetree representative. "We'll host an opportunity to dialogue on this sensitive topic."
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be 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 Mike at 272-6198 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
