Growing up without a father
Submitted By Craig Cable
Forty percent of American children will sleep tonight in a home where their fathers donÕt live. The impact of that reality will be explored at Lifetree Cafˇ on Tuesday, June 10.
A filmed interview with Donald Miller (best-selling author of Blue Like Jazz and Father Fiction) will be screened during the Lifetree program. In the interview, Miller describes growing up without a father and his attempts to reconnect with his father later in life.
ÒThis program, titled ÔFatherLess,Õ is for those whoÕve been abandoned, ignored, or abused by their fathers,Ó says Lifetree Cafˇ representative Craig Cable. ÒItÕs also for dads who have, for some reason, lived away from their children. And it will help anyone who cares about either a father or child whoÕs had to cope with this difficult situation.Ó
Lifetree Cafˇ is a place where people gather for conversation on life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Admission to the 60-minute event is free.
