Why People Leave Church Explored at Lifetree Café

Insights and trends about the current state of the church will be discussed at Lifetree Café on Sunday, September 27 at 7 p.m. The program, titled “Leaving God? Insights From Those Who’ve Walked Away From Church,” includes interviews with John Bucher, an author, filmmaker, and screenwriter who was hurt by the church, and Dr. Josh Packard, a professor and researcher at the University of Northern Colorado. “The reasons people are leaving are not the same, but half of the people we talk to can’t conceive of a church they’d come back to, and a third say they’ll actively discourage their children from going, too,” said Packard. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss their own personal experiences with organized religion. Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located at Campbell Creek Connexion on the corner of Union and 13th St., Arcata. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting.
