How to find and live a life of meaning and purpose will be discussed at Lifetree Café at 10 a.m., Sunday, May 25, and at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 29, at the West Des Moines United Methodist Church, 720 Grand Avenue, West Des Moines, IA 50265.
The program, titled “Living a Rich Life: Finding Meaning and Purpose,” features the filmed story of Christine Garde, who left an influential political position to launch a gang diversion program by moving into an urban gang-infested neighborhood.
“I want to look back at my life and know that I made a significant difference in the world,” says Garde, who believes she’s not alone in her desire. “People want their lives to matter.”
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.
