Client Testimonial – Linda Hosea

SWEET CITY LANDSCAPES·THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2017

Blake,

Please know how much I appreciate all of your help.

As you know my house has been on the market, to sell, for quite a while. Living four hours away I wasn’t able to keep an eye on the proper upkeep. Since it is a large property it needed quite a bit of work to bring it back to a pretty, maintained home, which you did. Several weeks after you did a great “revamp” on the yards, I received a contract! The yards are now clean, mulched and lovely.

I am very grateful to you and you keen sense of design.

Thanks Blake

Linda

Dr. Amanda Allen to Publish a Book on a Central Debate in the English Reformation

MOUNT VERNON— Brewton-Parker History Professor, Dr. Amanda Allen, received word earlier this month from the editorial board of Lexington Books, an academic imprint of the Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group, that the book proposal she had submitted some months ago for their review has been accepted for publication.  The board concluded that Dr. Allen’s proposal – a re-working of her doctoral dissertation entitled Flesh, Blood, and Puffed-Up Livers: The Theological, Political, and Social Contexts behind the 1550-51 Eucharistic Debate – will make a “significant scholarly contribution” to the field of English Reformation history.  The completed manuscript should be ready for submission by the first week in October, and Lexington plans to publish the book both in hardcover and as an e-book sometime in 2018.

 

Allen’s book examines the contentious 16th-Century debate between Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury and a key leader in the English Reformation, and Stephen Gardiner, the Bishop of Winchester for the Church of England, on the form and substance of the Eucharist in liturgical practice.  While Cranmer advanced a more reformed understanding of the spiritual presence of Christ in the elements of the Eucharist, Gardiner held to the more traditional, Catholic view of a real, physical presence of Christ’s body and blood in the bread and the cup.  As both bishops vied for recognition as the credible authority, the ensuing feud would shape religious practice and doctrine for centuries to come.

Lexington not only will send Allen’s book to a number of significant scholarly journals for review, but also will exhibit the book in their catalogs and at all relevant academic conferences that they attend.  Dr. Robert Brian, Provost at Brewton-Parker, pointed out that students at the college soon will be able to look forward to studying history directly from the author of their text.  “Dr. Allen is a stellar professor,” he said, “mentoring her students through relationship-building, while at the same time delivering history informed by current, significant research.  We applaud Dr. Allen as she publishes her first book.”

Echols Explains How God is Our “Refuge, River, and Ruler”

By Caitlyn Parrish
BPC Staff Writer

MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker’s February 21 chapel service began with Brewton-Parker’s own Voices of Truth singing “Glorious Day.” Following Voices of Truth’s performance, students Carolina Murray, Alaina Alderman, Olivia Brantley, Morgan Brantley, Sarah Batchelor, and Branden Lewis led worship with the songs “Your Grace is Enough” and “Blessed Redeemer.”

After the time of worship, Brewton-Parker President, Dr. Steve Echols, began the message by telling a personal account of his experiences during Hurricane Katrina. Echols explained that Psalm 46 was his comfort during that time because “it reminds us of who out God is.” He later when on to explain how God is a refuge, river, and ruler. “Your problems might seem overwhelming but problems are finite and aren’t you glad our God is infinite,” Echols explained. “Whatever your circumstances are,” continued Echols, “God can give you peace like a river.” He encouraged the congregation to surrender to God because “His way is the best way.” Sometimes in the most difficult times we discover who our God is,” he concluded.

Brewton-Parker Hosts Kimberly Wilson’s A Journey

By Caitlyn Parrish
BPC Staff Writer

MOUNT VERNON— Brewton-Parker’s Cultural Diversity Committee hosted A Journey, a one-woman play by Kimberly Wilson, Tuesday, February 21, 2017. Wilson’s play took the audience on a “journey” of influential African American women through her use of song and dialogue. Although just one woman performed, Wilson was able to effectively become multiple characters such as an African queen, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Rosa Parks, Maya Angelo, and more. Using her talents in song to seamlessly transition from character to character, Wilson portrayed the struggles and triumphs African American women throughout history have faced. Dr. Steve Echols, President of Brewton-Parker College, said that the performance left him “disturbed, convicted, and hopeful.”
At the conclusion of the performance, Wilson gave a brief autobiography in which she explained her purpose for creating A Journey. “I wanted to tell a story where I could reach the average person,” she explained. Wilson urged the audience to write about their own “journey” because everyone has a story to tell.
