Everything from politics to prayer is featured at a weekly experience called Lifetree Café. This “conversation café,” located in the Centennial Room at First United Methodist Church, 5510 N. Central Ave., is part of a national network of locations that offer participatory events related to life and faith.
The hour typically includes a short original film and guided conversation. A local host directs the hour. Topics, which change weekly, focus on popular life issues. Topics for December include: “Art of Listening: An Act of Love,” on Dec. 2; “What People Really Think of Christians … and Why,” on Dec. 9; “Overcoming Hardship: A Father and Son Beat the Odds” on Dec. 16; “Body Language: What You Say Before You Say a Word” on Dec. 23; and “One Woman’s Quest to Save 300 Babies” on Dec. 30.
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. For more information contact Diane VanDyke at 623-696-7344 or firstname.lastname@example.org. See weekly previews at www.facebook.com/LifetreePhoenix.
