Strategies for coping with difficult times will be shared at this Lifetree Café. The program, titled “Bouncing Back: Turning Disasters Into Opportunities,” features a screening of the award-winning short film, Dancing Outside the Box. The film features Ray Leight, whose near-fatal motorcycle accident left him permanently in a wheelchair.
“You’re 20 years old and think you’ve got your whole life ahead of you. The next thing you know, tubes are sticking out of you, and doctors are telling you they know how you feel. Let me take a baseball bat to you—then you’ll know how I feel,” Leight said.
Leight’s months of depression turned toward hope when a friend invited him to attend a ballroom dancing class.
Participants in the Lifetree program will explore how to overcome the challenges in their lives by applying the principles learned by Leight.
Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are provided.
