  • An Academic Program for Exploring the Divine Healing Touch in Medicine — "As a result of generous support by many, we have been able to create curriculum for medical students and connect with colleagues at UM and across the country on this topic. We now have required curriculum on religion and spirituality for the pre-clinical and clinical medical students. We also run a senior medical student elective where students rotating through our ICU's may participate in didactics and patient care with members of our chaplaincy staff."
  • The Theobiology of a Mother's Voice — "Our words have power, even the power to impact physical changes in our biology. We should therefore speak as God speaks, sharing in the same Spirit. In our relationships we should speak edifying things into existence, words of truth and love, and where necessary, words of discipline and rebuke by the Spirit. We should speak as God speaks because we bear God’s image in our being and we share in his Spirit."
