Lifetree Cafe chooses topics for August

Meth addiction will be the lead-off topic for the August Lifetree Cafe program sponsored by Meadow Park Church of God.

That will be followed by topics that focus on betrayal within relationships, communicating with pets and the coexistence of science and religion.

"All four events will provide for thoughtful discussion at Lifetree Cafe, a place where people gather weekly for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting," according to church spokeswoman Cindy Heath.

Lifetree Cafe takes place at 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays in the Tim Hortons Cafe and Bake Shop, 3700 Discovery Lane, Powell, and Thursdays in Meadow Park Church of God, 2425 Bethel Road.

Lifetree Cafe is a Colorado-based organization that distributes materials to help facilitate conversations on a local level about world topics.

The topics change weekly and there is no cost or registration required. For more information, go to or
