Coping with loss to be explored
ELYSBURG - How loss can transform your perspective will be explored at Lifetree Cafe from 7 to 8 p.m. Sunday at Elysburg Presbyterian Church, 320 W. Valley Ave.
The program includes filmed interviews with two artists who experienced the loss of loved ones and coped through their art.
"Loss can be devastating," says 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 are available.
Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. For more information, call 672-2873, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.lifetreecafe.com.
