Religious variety to be discussed at Lifetree Café
Is there one true religion? Or many? These questions will be discussed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Café, 3101 Campus Drive.
The program "Only One Way To God? Can One Religion Really Have All The Answers?" features the filmed story of Valerie Winn, an American whose spiritual journey led her to a Chinese village where she encountered an underground church.
Winn describes her encounters with various religions and how they shaped her.
"I finally said, 'God, would you just show me if you're real?'" Winn said.
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.
Lifetree Café 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 Craig Cable at (970) 292-4838 or email@example.com.
