Coffee Talk: Righteous Anger

In August SpokaneFAVS organized a Coffee Talk discussion on Righteous Anger.

Thanks for a great August Coffee Talk!

Today Spokane Faith & Values held its eighth Coffee Talk, this time at Indaba Coffee.

About 20 people attended the discussion, which focused on righteous anger, being nice and behavior.

Join us today for Coffee Talk!

Join us at Indaba Coffee at 10 a.m. Aug. 3 for our next Coffee Talk
