The Spokane Buddhist Temple will be the first stop for Faith Feast: An Interfaith Progressive Dinner on March 30.

The dinner, a fundraiser for Spokane Faith & Values, will begin with appetizers at the temple, then guests will travel to Temple Beth Shalom for an entree then have dessert at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Spokane Stake.

About the Spokane Buddhist Temple

The Spokane Buddhist Temple was established in 1945 and is centered around the Japanese Shin branch on Buddhism. Sangha services, which are held Sunday mornings, are hosted by one of three minister’s assistants. The temple is run entirely by volunteers. Though founded in Japanese heritage, all services are held in English and most members are non-Japanese.  The Spokane Buddhist Temple also holds food bazaars in the spring and fall.

About the food

Unlike other branches of Buddhism, Shin Buddhists are not vegetarian. Since this sect of Buddhist originated in Japan, the temple’s festivals always feature traditional Japanese dishes. At the Spokane Buddhist Temple master chefs Jun Yugawa and Eileen Tanaka prepare the menu.

Memorial Day and the Families Left Behind

Memorial Day was first established after the Civil War to honor those Americans killed in service to their country. Since the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, about 7,000 American service members have been added to the rolls of dead. As I watched families laying flowers on graves, it occurred to me that every American family in some way has been touched by war.
