22nd Annual Community Prayer Breakfast
Thursday, October 20, 2011
Award-winning Plain Dealer columnist Terry Pluto will speak at Parma Community General Hospital’s 22nd Annual Community Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, October 20, 2011 at 7 a.m. at St. Michael’s Woodside in Broadview Heights. The Cleveland native, who pens columns on both faith and sports for The Plain Dealer, will share his thoughts on “Faith and You: Making Faith Work in Everyday Life.”
After years of beat writing covering Cleveland sports for the Akron Beacon Journal, Pluto began writing sports columns. In 2000, he added his perspective on faith through a column and took his experience with both sports and faith to The Plain Dealer in 2007. He has received more than 50 state and local writing awards and is a nine-time winner of the Ohio Sports Writer of the Year award. In 2005, he was inducted into the Cleveland Journalism Hall of Fame.
Pluto is the author of 29 books, including three on religion: Everyday Faith; Faith And You: Making Faith Work in Everyday Life; and Champions for Life: The Healing Power of a Father’s Blessing. The books he has authored on sports have covered baseball (The Curse of Rocky Colavito and Burying the Curse: How the Indians Became the Best Team in Baseball), football (When All the World Was Browns Town and Things I’ve Learned From Watching The Browns) and basketball (Forty-Eight Minutes: A Night in the Life of the NBA and Loose Balls: The Short, Wild Life of the American Basketball Association – ranked #13 on Sports Illustrated magazine’s list of the Top 100 Sports Books of All Time.)
For several years, Pluto also has ministered to prisoners at the Summit County Jail. “Good preaching begins with suffering and ends with celebration,” he says.
