Doubts about God addressed at Lifetree Café

Published: Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 08:52 AM.

What happens to religious faith when hard times come will be explored at 7 p.m. CT Monday, Jan. 27 at Lifetree Café. 

The program, titled “Where Is God When Life Turns Tough?” features the filmed story of John Stumbo, a healthy ultra-marathoner who was suddenly attacked by an undiagnosable, life-threatening illness.

“I discovered the faith I claimed as a child was being tested in a new way,” says Stumbo. “It was being tested in an ICU ward, facing life or death.”

Participants will discuss what happens to faith in the face of disappointment and disaster.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.

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 Gary Grubb at 334-806-5667 or
