Spiritual Musings

2 Jul


Check out the blog readthespirit.com

It’s an online magazine, a blog, a bookstore, and more.

This expanded blog is innovative, fresh and cross-cultural. All faiths are explored.

I stumbled upon it after, my Linkedin connection Bobbie Lewis wrote about it. Bobbie has a new interactive section on this blog called Feed the Spirit.

Veteran journalist David Crumm is a co-founder. He’s the former religion columnist at the Detroit Free Press. I used to read his columns religiously! Another personal connection is Lynne Meredith Golodner, a former colleague from our days at Renaissance Media and the Detroit Jewish News. She is the author (shown) of Flavors of Faith: Holy Breads, published by Read the Spirit Books. Golodner weaves interesting stories in between recipes for challah, hot-cross buns and Native American cornbread. Faith and food intersect in delightful way.

Flavors of the Faith is first in a series “to inspire and nourish readers with real-life stories and cross-cultural traditions.”

I look forward to more soulful recipes and food stories.

Sharing the Spirit of the Season

24 Dec

The generosity of Beaumont Health System employees is overwhelming.  Each of the three hospitals collaborated with charities to make sure children in need had presents for the holidays. At Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak the staff purchased presents for more than 280 children at the Judson Center, a Royal-Oak based nonprofit organization, serving abused and neglected children and adults with developmental disabilities. At Beaumont Hospital, Troy employees worked in the Adopt-A-Family program through Oakland County Services, serving families in Southeastern Michigan. At Beaumont Hospital, Grosse Pointe bins were filled with toys, blankets, mittens and other winter needs for children and adults at LifeBuilders, a Detroit nonprofit that helps people struggling with unemployment, homelessness and addictions.

As Director of Community Affairs at Beaumont, I’m proud to belong to this caring, compassionate health system. Darlene Nikisic, shown in the photo, is part of the Community Affairs staff, and she coordinated the collection of gifts for the Judson Center.
