All things Coffee Talk – you asked for it, we built it

We're not just about reporting religious news and publishing reflections on issues of faith and ethics. Spokane Faith & Values prides itself in bringing the Spokane community together — offline — once a month for our Coffee Talks.

We started this community forum in January at Chairs Coffee. I asked our panelists to discuss God and the Newtown shootings. You, readers, packed the coffee house. And you did it again in February when we gathered at Boots Bakery to discuss “Violence and the Sacred.”

For eight months now we've bounced from coffee house to coffee house discussing important theological and moral issues in a manner that's fruitful, respectful and insightful. And we're supporting local business along the way. 

Leading up to the Coffee Talk each month our writers post articles about the month's topic (September's topic is “engaging millennials.”) Several of you have asked for this website to have a place where all things Coffee Talk can live, and I'm proud to say that as of today, we have a Coffee Talk page! The Coffee Talk page will be updated regularly. 

Thanks for making Coffee Talk a success. If you want to become a Coffee Talk community sponsor, please email tracysimmons@spokanefavs.com.

I hope to see you at our next discussion, which will be at 10 a.m., Sept. 7 at Revel 77.

Once you cross this step, you start the process of sharing these blessings with others.
