THE BENEFITS AND CONSEQUENCES OF HONESTY DISCUSSED AT LIFETREE CAFÉ Whether honesty really is the best policy will be examined at Lifetree Café on Wednesday at 7:00pm in the café and Thursday at 12:30pm in the Pool House at Candlewood. The program, titled “Tell Me the Real Story: The Amazing Power of Honesty,” features conversations surrounding whether telling the truth is best in all circumstances. “There are times it’s obvious you should tell the truth,” said Lifetree Café national director, Craig Cable. “But in other situations, there seems to be some gray area. In this Lifetree program, participants will discuss when confessing the truth is best, and when it might not be—especially in relationships.” During the program, Lifetree participants will be given the opportunity to share experiences of when honesty, or a lack of it, has impacted their lives.
