Bouncing Back; Turning Disasters into Opportunities
Strategies for coping with difficult times will be shared at Lifetree Café.
The program, titled "Bouncing Back: Turning Disasters Into Opportunities," features a screening of the award-winning short film. 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.
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café meets @The Eleanor Kahle Center 1315 Hillcrest Ave in West Toledo from 7-8 pm every Thursday. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
