Thursday, January 10, 2013 - 6:14 am

CHIPMAN -- Lifetree Café will discuss practical solutions for overcoming hardship at the Monday, Jan. 14 meeting, 7 p.m.

The café, located at the Scotch Presbyterian Church, will discuss “Overcoming Hardship: A Father and Son Beat the Odds,” featuring a film on Patrick Henry Hughes and his father.

Patrick Hughes was born without eyes or the ability to extend his limbs. Though in a wheelchair, Hughes performed in the University of Louisville marching band, his father pushing his wheelchair through every practice and performance.

“I don’t think I have anything holding me back,” says the younger Hughes. “All I have to do is think about the goal I wish to achieve, look at the resources that might help me achieve that goal, reach out to them, and see what happens.”

Admission is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
