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. The panelists shared their views on how anger can be used for good.

Our next Coffee Talk will be Sept. 7. Check back for details.
