Nov. 15 program to focus on 'Wounded Warriors'

A Veterans Day-appropriate topic is on tap for the next Lifetree Cafe gathering in Meadow Park Church of God, 2425 Bethel Road.

"Wounded Warriors: When War Comes Home" will be the topic at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 15 when the weekly, interactive discussion takes place at the church.

The programs are repeated at 4:30 p.m. Saturdays and they are also held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays in Delaware's Pathway Church of God, 201 Pennsylvania Ave.

The "Wounded Warrior" program will feature a film about a veteran who saw a buddy killed in combat and whose return to civilian life is disrupted by mental distress, violent tendencies and problems with relationships, according to the announcement.

Lifetree Cafe is a national organization based in Loveland, Colo., that provides the filmed portions of the programs.

Area residents help lead the discussion among those attending the gatherings.

Mariann Strozier and Meg Scaggs are co-directors of the Lifetree Cafe at Meadow Park Church of God.

The two weekly sessions take place in the church's Park Cafe, located in the lobby.

Those who go online to may participate in the online discussions in the same conversations that are occuring during the meetings.

Future topics for Lifetree Cafes include:

"Preparing for the Worst: How to Survive a Catastrophe" the week of Nov. 18

"The Mystery of Prayer: Can God Be Swayed?" the week of Nov. 25.

There will be no Lifetree Cafe event at Meadow Park Church of God Thanksgiving Day.
