Discussion on short film about author Todd Burpo in Chipman's Corners on Monday
Thursday, May 8, 2014 - 5:28 pm

CHIPMAN'S CORNERS -- Lifetree Cafe will show a filmed interview with Todd Burpo on May 12 at 7 p.m. at Scotch Presbyterian Church, 35 County Rte. 33.

He is author of New York Times best seller "Heaven Is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back."

In 2003, Burpo nearly lost his four-year-old son, Colton. The boy's appendix burst, and he fought a life-threatening infection. To save Colton's life, emergency surgery was conducted. After the surgery, Colton began telling his parents he visited heaven.

"Several months after his surgery, Colton started talking about visiting heaven during the time he hovered between life and death in the operating room," says Lifetree representative Craig Cable. "He knew things he couldn't have otherwise known, described things he couldn't have otherwise seen. As the evidence mounted, Colton's parents had to decide: Had their son gone to heaven and returned?"

Admission to the event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.
