It’s been six months since I last wrote a religion wrap-up. In that six months, though, I’ve watched our traffic climb higher and higher, so thought I’d give it another go. Spokane is a wellspring of religion news and although we do our best to report it all to you, there’s not enough time in the week to report everything. Here are some bits we thought you might at least want to know about.
For those of you that may not have heard, I am no longer in Spokane. A career opportunity has taken me from my sunny west coast home in Washington to the equally sunny but much more humid eastern landscapes of Virginia. For financial reasons I decided to make this move by car and view the country from the cracked windshield of my cross-over SUV.
While many in the Spokane area worshipped in various religious services Sunday morning, I ran the St. Paddy’s Five. Running is more than just an athletic event, it’s a celebration of community; it’s a place to be accepted for who I am.
