Will Bowen coming to Chain of Lakes Church

Tomorrow Will Bowen is flying in from Kansas City to speak at Chain of Lakes Church.  We still have a few tickets available for his presentation, which is at 6:30 p.m.  The following is a modified version of a Press Release we sent out

In an effort to help people cut back on their complaints, Chain of Lakes Church has invited nationally known speaker Will Bowen -- the author and driving force behind the complaint-free life -- to speak at an educational event at the church Wednesday, June 24, at 6:30 p.m. at its new home at 10130 Davenport St. NE in Blaine.

Bowen is the author of two international bestselling books: “A Complain Free World -- How to Stop Complaining and Start Enjoying the Life you Always Wanted” and “Complaint Free Relationships -- How to Positively Transform Your Personal, Work and Love Relationships.” The latter has sold more than 1.5 million copies.

“As we thought about helping our community, we came to the conclusion that helping people complain less would be very beneficial,” said Pastor Paul H. Moore, organizing pastor of Chain of Lakes Church. “Earlier this year I shared his complaint-free ideas with our congregation and received a very enthusiastic response. Now we want to share this message with the wider community.”

Bowen has been featured on Oprah, NBC’s Today Show, ABC Evening News, and CBS Sunday Morning. Bowen’s “complaint-free” concept has also been the subject of stories in many national magazines and newspapers. Additional information about Bowen can be found online at http://www.willbowen.com.

During his presentation, Bowen will share tips and strategies to help people diminish complaining in their life.

“Most of us would admit that we live in a culture where people complain a lot,” Moore said.  “And most of us would like to diminish the amount of complaining. Having Will Bowen come to Blaine is one way we can help our wider community complain less.”

Tickets for the event are $10 and can be purchased at the door, or on-line at http://www.colpres.org/community-event.htm

The Chain of Lakes band will offer music. Ice cream sundaes will be served after the event.  Child care will be available.
