Meet The Neighbors has been an ongoing tour of Spokane’s religious landscape where the community is invited to visit a local house of worship in order to, “Help build a more inclusive, pluralistic community.”
Saturday’s event will be from 2-4 p.m.
The event is free, though donations are encouraged.
Meet the Neighbors will start up again in 2017, possibly a visit to Sravasti Abbey.
