Shalom to Host a Lifetree Café at the Ministry Center

This Week’s Discussion is titled,

Can God Love A Mess Like Me?”

                                         Interview With Author of The Shack Screened at Lifetree Café   The author of the best-selling book The Shack will weigh in on whether God loves imperfect people at Lifetree Café on Thursday, June 20th at 6:30pm. The program, titled “Can God Love a Mess Like Me?” features a filmed interview with William Paul Young, author of The Shack and Cross Roads. The Shack has sold over 20 million copies, though Young never intended to publish it. “I wrote it to communicate to my kids about the character of God, to make asking questions about God’s kindness and goodness okay.” The Shack became a major motion picture released in March 2017 and went on to win the Gospel Music Association Dove Award for Inspirational Film of the Year.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located 111 East 5th Street, Starbuck, MN.
Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Becky Worner at 320-239-3418 or


What is Lifetree Café?

Lifetree Café is a weekly, hour-long interactive experience that features real people’s real stories on film, guided conversation, biblical insights, and time to build relationships. Lifetree Café tackles the topics that most people deal with—topics about the big (and little) stuff that shapes our lives. Family. Friends. Fears. Busyness. Balance. Money. Materialism. Health. Heaven. Peace. Purpose.   Lifetree Café is a place where rich conversation is served up every week. At Lifetree Café you’re encouraged to share your own stories and listen to others. But if you don’t feel like talking, that’s okay, too. You’re welcome just as you are.
