Lifetree Cafe topic will be on one man’s ‘encounter with God’

Former Ethiopian Prime Minister Tamrat Layne tells about his controversial “encounter with God” in a filmed interview at Lifetree Cafe at noon on Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe, 18 S. Third St.

After serving as prime minister, Layne was convicted on corruption charges and served 12 years in prison. During his incarceration, Layne claims he experienced a supernatural visit from God.

“This compelling story raises questions we’ll consider at this program,” says Lifetree representative Craig Cable. “Did God appear in an Ethiopian prison cell to Layne? Are such encounters real? If so, why doesn’t God appear to anyone who asks him to do so?”

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to the Rev. Barbara Huisman at 302-8036.
