About 20 people attended our August Coffee Talk, which was held Aug. 3 at Indaba Coffee.

Today Spokane Faith & Values held its eighth Coffee Talk, this time at Indaba Coffee.

About 20 people attended the discussion, which focused on righteous anger, being nice and behavior. The panelists shared their views on how anger can be used for good.

Most agreed that anger is an unavoidable human emotion that can be a poison if left untreated. However, acknowledging that anger and using that energy to make positive changes, creates a “righteous anger.”

Our next Coffee Talk will be Sept. 7. Check back for details.

Panelists and attendees, what are your thoughts on today's event?
