Overcoming regrets, making peace

Overcoming regrets, making peace

How to overcome regrets and make peace with the past will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Café, 3101 Campus Drive.

The program features the filmed story of Chad Arnold, a man whose need for an organ transplant prompted his brother to volunteer to be a donor. Arnold's brother died as a result of the surgery; Arnold survived.

"We all have regrets about what we've done or left undone," said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. "This program, titled 'If Only: Living With Regret,' offers practical steps to move past regrets and live happier, healthier lives."

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
