The terror of jihad will be explored at Lifetree Café today at 6 p.m. at Lakeside Baptist Church Ministry Center, 3410 Glen Rose Highway and again on Monday at Stumpy’s Lakeside Grill at 7 p.m., 2323 S. Morgan St.

The program, titled “Inside Terrorism: A Muslim’s Quest to Stop Jihad,” features a screening of the Academy Award–nominated film “Killing in the Name.”

The film tells the story of Ashraf Al-Khaaled, whose wedding reception was transformed into a bloodbath when an Al-Qaeda suicide bomber attacked the hotel. Ashraf’s father and 26 other family members died in the attack. The film follows Ashraf as he speaks with an Al-Qaeda recruiter, a militant who was behind one of the world’s worst terrorist attacks, and a group of boys being prepared for jihad.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Lakeside Baptist Church at 817-573-2094.
