Lifetree event to discuss loss

Lifetree event to discuss loss

How loss can transform your perspective will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Café, 3101 Campus Drive.

The program includes filmed interviews with two artists who experienced the loss of loved ones and coped through their art.

"Loss can be devastating," said Lifetree Café representative Craig Cable. "In this program, we'll share our stories of loss with people who care — and consider how we can become stronger through tragedy. This hour of discovery and discussion is for anyone who's experienced loss." 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 Cable at (970) 292-4838 or
