Ven. Thubten Chonyi, a Buddhist nun living at Sravasti Abbey, starts her day by reading SpokaneFāVS.com. She’s one of the 5,000 people who get FāVS delivered right to her inbox each morning.

“Reading it teaches me so much about human hearts and helps me understand the lenses that people of different faiths wear to view our world,” she says. “Although we may have widely different philosophical views, I find much in common with writers and readers of SpokaneFAVs—all seekers of higher truths, all proponents of spiritual ethics, all believers in human potential to care for one another and our world.”

So many people feel this way about SpokaneFāVS, like FāVS columnist Cassy Benefield who says, “I really believe SpokaneFāVs.com is one of the best places on the internet, and every local community should have a place like this where people from all walks of life can talk and listen to one another better where reciprocal understanding and kindness are results.”
