Source Magazine debuts at Detroit's Praisefest
Detroit (May 25, 2004):–Metro Detroit will catch its first glimpse
of the premier issue of Soul Source magazine during the Praisefest,
June 12-13 at Hart Plaza. Dr. Deborah Smith-Pollard, long time WJLB
Sunday morning gospel announcer and organizer of the Festival will be
on the cover of the inaugural edition.
Soul Source is a free monthly full-color tabloid inserted in The Michigan
Chronicle and distributed at major Christian events and select churches
throughout metro Detroit. "We hope to provide metro Detroit with
Christian information and inspiration that will change lives for the
better," said Pamela Perry, publisher. The monthly will profile
local pastors, authors, gospel artists, Christian entrepreneurs and
cover events that are making a positive impact in the community.
"We have columnists who are Christian writers, authors and experts
in their field. Experienced journalists will write the articles and
profiles. Our main mission – to break out of the ordinary, to
encourage others to be all that they dreamed and ever imagined because
with God all things are possible," said Perry. The magazine’s
design is bold and contemporary featuring many motivational columns.
There will be regular columns on health, wealth, family, education,
purpose and destiny. Comedian Horace B. Sanders will also contribute
"Today's urban Christians are passionate about their faith and
are active in the community. The faith-based message that Soul Source

"In an era when sex sells and controversy prevails, readers need
a resource that will uplift the spirit and stimulate the mind. You
are what you read, watch and listen to," said Worlds. "The
media influences our thoughts as well as our actions. We become what
we meditate upon."
Perry says that we must monitor the source of our thoughts if we want
true success. "If we want to set our minds on things above and
not get hung up on earthly things, we need to feed our minds the right
kind of diet. Soul Source is about real soul food. Our purpose for
this publication is to inspire Christians to apply what they believe
to improve their lives and their surroundings. That’s faith in
action," said Perry.
"New magazines are started all the time, but you can never have
too much inspirational media. A dose of good news is like a medicine
that heals the heart, body and soul," said Mersier.
Soul Source will also focus on the issues of life and testimonies
about the overcoming power of God. "Hopefully this publication
will motivate us to live more holy and compels us to have compassion
for those in spiritual poverty," said Perry.
