In the chaos that was last week, I didn’t get a chance to write a religion wrap-up and I really wanted to give a shout-out to The Spovangelist. Editor-in-Chief Alayna Becker gave us an outstanding review on Sept. 10 and you should all go read it. The Spovangelist gets what we’re all about and we can’t wait to work with them further.
In case you missed it, last week we wrote about Congregation Emanu-El’s new rabbi. Their Yom Kippur service will be Sept. 26 at 10:30 a.m.
This weekend Life Center will conclude its series, “Polarized” about religion, politics and gay marriage. “Jesus died for people not issues,” the church states on its website. The series has been teaching how to develop a biblical worldview of the above issues and how to “reframe these conversations with our neighbors in love.” You can listen to Pastor Joe Witter’s last sermon, on politics, here.
Speaking of big issues, the hot topic on SpokaneFAVS this week was about the havoc the “Innocence of Muslims” film has caused in the Middle East. A young student from Bahrain shared her perspective with us, which caused a flurry of comments on our site. It also prompted our writer Sam Fletcher to respond with his post, “With freedom of speech comes responsibility,” which also spurred lots of dialogue.
Join us in these conversations, won’t you?
