Woman Shares Story of Assault at Lifetree Café

How to pick up the pieces and go on with life after a crisis will be explored at Lifetree Café on Sunday, April 20th from 5:30-6:30

The program, titled "After the Attack: Picking Up the Pieces and Moving On," features the filmed story of a woman who was assaulted in her home—and the man who attacked her.

"I’d thought about her for days," says the attacker, who was sentenced to six years for the crime. "I had that drive—and a knife."

Participants in the Lifetree program will discover how both the victim and attacker were able to move on with their lives and eventually reconcile.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located in the Sunflower of People’s Bank

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 886-3903.
