Spokane’s Religion Wrap-up: Coffee Talk, Our Place, Bishop Cupich, Civil Disobedience and Hell

Hopefully you marked your calendar for next weekend’s “Coffee Talk.” This is part of our monthly conversation and faith and theology. The discussion this time will be on “Violence and the Sacred.” It will be at 10 a.m. on Feb. 2 at Boots Bakery. Here are some details for you. See you there, yes?

The Spokane International Film Festival will be the same weekend as our “Coffee Talk.” At 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 3 “Hellbound?” will be shown at the Magic Lantern Theatre. Looks fascinating.

Then, later in February, Our Place will have a fundraiser at Gonzaga’s Magnuson Theatre where “The Force of Habit” comedy will be shown. This is to celebrate the organization’s 25th anniversary. Tickets are $25 and include a reception with a silent auction, wine and appetizers. For info call 326-7267.
