More than 80 people attended today’s Coffee Talk.

https://www.facebook.com/SpokaneFAVS/videos/2364468327169507/

Panelists will discuss the importance of inter-religious, spiritual and secular work here in Spokane, what it looks like today and what it could like in the future.

This is also a chance to get a peek at the home of Spokane’s new Interfaith Community Center. Origin Church, on the South Hill, donated its building and property to FāVS and the FāVS board has decided to use the gift to create an interfaith center for the Spokane area. Because Coffee Talk won’t be at a coffee shop this time, FāVS will be providing coffee and some snacks.

Panelists are

Origin is located at 5115 S. Freya. Extra parking is located around the corner on 51st Ave.

If everyone who reads and appreciates FāVS, helps fund it with a tax-deductible donation, we can provide more events like this. For as little as $5, you can support FāVS – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
