Johns Hopkins Bayview Reception

Johns Hopkins Bayview is dedicated to partnerships between the faith communities and the health communities. Although our society seems to be trying to get rid of God, many realize His importance.  The Baltimore Police Department is investing in the chaplaincy movement and Johns Hopkins is dedicated to Building Healthy Communities through Medical-Religious Partnerships.

Doctors W. Daniel Hale, Richard G. Bennett, and Panagis Galiatsatos wrote the book by this title and on Wednesday 30 May 2018 they held a reception and copies of the book were given to us.  Johns Hopkins Bayview also has a fantastic educational program for clergy and care givers.  Four of them are: Caring for the City, Lay Health Educator Program, Medical and Religious Partners, and Spiritual Care in the World of Health Care.

I have attended all four of these courses and have extensive notes.  I highly recommend all of them.

Dr. Nick [Galiatsatos] and I have a bond in faith.  We are both Orthodox Christians.  He's Greek and I'm Russian.  When people ask me what's the difference between the Greek Orthodox Church and the Russian Orthodox Church, I tell them, "At parties the Greeks drink Ouzo and the Russians drink Vodka."  Most people immediately understand that the differences are only cultural. 

If I have time, I also tell people that if you take the "K" out of the word vodka [водка], you have the Russian word for water [вода].
