Join SpokaneFāVS tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. for a Pub Talk discussion on the changing religious landscape.
Pub Talk is a continuation of the monthly Coffee Talks – a way to informally extend the dialogue that starts at those monthly forums.
This month’s panelists talked about how people are seeking God outside of church buildings, how people of faith can respond to declining worship numbers, the growing number of ‘nones,’ the appeal megachurches have on many Christians and much more.
Join fellow FāVS readers and writers for Pub Tal kat the Steam Plant, 159 S. Lincoln, Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
