The Pain of Living a Double Life Addressed at Lifetree Café

The high cost of living with a lie will be discussed at Lifetree Café on Sunday at 10:00 A.M. and Thursday at 7:00 P.M.   

The program, titled “Living a Lie: The Perils of a Double Life,” features the filmed story of Carol Grever, a woman who discovered after 30 years that her husband had been living a double life.

“Living with a secret is hell,” says Grever. “You can’t give yourself wholly to someone else if you’re hiding a secret.”

Participants will gain practical insights into coping with the pain of discovering double lives as they follow Grever’s journey toward forgiveness, growth, and hope. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversations about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Paige Chapman at 279-0826 or pchapman@wdmumc.org.
