(Loveland, Colorado)—An open conversation about atheism will take place at Lifetree Café on Sunday, March 30, at 7p.m., Tuesday, April 1, at noon, and Thursday, April 3, at noon.      

The program, titled “What Your Atheist Friend Wants You to Know: The conversation no one is having” includes a film featuring honest insights from atheists about their beliefs and their experience with people of faith.

“There’s a misconception that atheists aren’t as moral as people of faith,” says atheist Steve Graham. “But we can be just as moral. I have a complete and fulfilled life without faith. I don’t feel there’s anything missing from my life.”

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation on life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Craig Cable at (970) 292-4938 or ccable@group.com. More information is available at www.lifetreecafe.com/loveland.

(Loveland, Colorado)—The pros and cons of online dating will be discussed at Lifetree Café on Sunday, April 6, at 7p.m., Tuesday, April 8, at noon, and Thursday, April 10, at noon.          

The program, titled “Online Dating: Stories of smashes, crashes, and crushes” includes a film featuring dating website founder Ken Deckinger who describes what’s behind the popularity of online dating and how some people are effective at finding partners online.

This Lifetree program is for both those who are engaged in online dating and those who haven’t embraced cyber matchmaking.
