JEREMIAH 29:7

Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas Ephesians 3:6, This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together in one body... Recently, I made the Facebook post below as a response to the recent tragedy in Pittsburgh: My prayer time this morning led me to this passage that helped me process the pain I have felt for the tragedy in Pittsburgh. The thought of living your life with the constant fear that there are evil people who want to kill you for how you worship and who your parents are, breaks my heart. This passage should remind Christians that all we are comes from the gift of God through the Jewish people and that an attack on them is an attack on all of us who want to live quietly and worship God in our community as we strive to raise our families. I pray for the families that have lost loved ones, and I pray for the Jewish people that live with this constant battle of hatred for them, simply because their existence shouts to the world that the God of Abraham is real and active in our world today!!!

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, during his two-year imprisonment, continued his ministry through writing and preaching within the prison walls. In fact, he was preaching his last sermon when the guards arrived to take him to the gallows to be hung. He wrote two widely studied books from prison: The Cost of Discipleship and Letters and Papers from Prison. The Memphis Jewish Community Center holds an annual book sale, and several years ago, much to my surprise, the book sale had a section with the Christian writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The presence of these books at the sale was an example of one of Memphis’ often unspoken greatest characteristics - the genuine love and respect the Jewish community and the Christian community have for each other.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a German pastor and theologian during World War II. He wrote, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The senseless act of hate and murder in Pittsburgh is a reminder that we must be ever vocal and vigilant in the fight to battle anti-Semitic attitudes wherever they may rise.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was executed at Flossenbürg Concentration Camp by the Nazis, just two weeks before Patton’s Third Army liberated the Camp. Bonhoeffer’s death ended his 13-year battle fighting Adolf Hitler’s plan to exterminate the Jews of Europe. Three weeks later Hitler would commit suicide after being personally responsible for the murder of over six million Jews, approximately 75% of the pre-war population.

While I believe we in Memphis are blessed to live in a city that could possibly have one of the greatest Jews/ Christian relationship of all times, it is something not to be taken for granted. It is something to be celebrated, so this Christmas/ Hanukkah Season declare your love for your neighbor and our City, by proudly wishing your fellow citizens Happy Hanukkah or Merry Christmas; when on the receiving end of that wish, find joy in the religion of the one declaring it.

In the 1930s, Hitler’s rise to power was only possible because the German government and largely Christian population of Germany ignored Hitler’s writings from jail in his autobiographical manifesto, Mein Kampf. Dietrich Bonhoeffer challenged the ruling authority of the church

|

and the government, becoming the leader of what would become known as the Confessing Church. The Confessing Church stood in opposition to the Nazification of the Christian churches and fought for the rights of the German Jews. Bonhoeffer was active in smuggling Jews out of the country with great risk of his own life. He was finally arrested in April 1943 after the failed assassination attempt on Hitler’s life. His role in the failed coup attempt led to his arrest and ultimate death.

Sprucing up the Mantel for the Holidays By Lesley Harris Colvett

Warner Moore Partner in Allyson James Design

3566 Walnut Grove Road Memphis, TN. 38111 901.281.8687 allyson@allysonjamesdesign.com

While the Christmas tree certainly takes the main stage when decorating for the holidays, one of the other most important spots of the home is the mantel. The 4Memphis designers offer their expert advice for creating a unique and festive mantel.

LIsa Hogue

The Feathered Nest 3098 Oakleigh Manor Cove Germantown, TN. 38138 901.421.8185 lisahoguedesigns@gmail.com Christmas is the most magical time of the year. It is a time to transform our homes into a holiday wonderland. The tree is the main focus of your holiday decor and the mantel is the second most important area to consider. I love transforming my mantel every year with something new and festive. There are so many options. A well-decorated mantel can take your Christmas decor to the next level. The mantel is usually the focal point of the room, and the first thing you see when you enter the room. I am sharing three different mantel looks to help inspire you. The styles are rustic and minimalistic, classic red and green whimsical, and red and green playing off of the rustic feel. I always like to start with greenery, then add ornaments, ribbon and holiday items. Look for opportunities to add bows to items that you already have on the mantel. Lanterns look great filled with a festive candle or ornaments. Add a wreath with a large festive bow to a mirror that hangs above mantel. Incorporate lights with the greenery to add a little sparkle. Have a Merry Christmas and enjoy the Season... remember the most important thing is time spent with the ones you love.

It’s here! Christmas is upon us. Time to pull out the decorations...How shall we do it this year? It’s a good idea to use what you have and get a few new things to freshen it up. The fireplace is one one of the first places that guests are drawn into upon entering a room; therefore, it’s important to decorate your mantel with Christmas joy! Let’s start with a simple but elegant design. Drape garland, hopefully fresh for the look and smell, over the mantel hanging down each side. Secure it using large, clear glass hurricanes with pillar candles at each end of the mantel. You can stud the garland with berries for color and texture. Take down your painting and hang a wreath over the mantle for a fresh look. Ribbons and bows are always a welcome addition. For an “out of the woods” look use cedar garland studded with pine cones. To create height, use potted blooming plants in terracotta containers. Paperwhites and amaryllis are perfect for this. Adding fruit and bundles of cinnamon sticks add to the texture, and votive candles complete the picture.

"It’s a good idea to use what you have and get a few new things to freshen it up." To create a personal look, start with evergreen garland and anchor it with silver julep cups filled with red carnations. Place the cups up and down the mantel. Then carefully place holiday cards you’ve received over the years, plus currently, in and around the garland. To do a vintage look, fill large glass urns with Christmas balls and ornaments. Place on either side of the mantel. Use faux snow on top of the mantel and place some of your favorite collectibles among the snowdrifts. All in all, you can create a new look by using what you have collected over the years or create a whole new look! Merry Christmas from Allyson and Warner!

Visual Merchandising Coordinator Palladio Home and Garden 2169 Central Ave. Memphis, TN. 38104 901.276.3808

As the visual coordinator for two of the Palladio showrooms, it’s my job to create all kinds of vignettes throughout the year. It’s fun having access to so many beautiful pieces of furniture, art, and décor to mix and match, but when a key element from a vignette is sold, I often have to just re-do the entire scene! We’re constantly rearranging around here. We have an entire warehouse full of architectural salvage pieces, so to assemble this "rustic-glam" holiday mantelpiece vignette, I went into the warehouse and found a 1940s era mantel whose white paint was chipping off to reveal a great dusty rose color beneath. Along with the magnolia leaves, and the Louis-Philippe mirror, that dusty rose color is what really inspired the entire vignette. It’s repeated in the pink leather armchairs, and in the framed contemporary watercolor painting layered over the mirror.

"To achieve that layered (but not cluttered!) look on your mantel display, start with larger pieces, and work your way down to the details. Repeat a select few colors and textures throughout."

To achieve that layered (but not cluttered!) look on your mantel display, start with larger pieces, and work your way down to the details. Repeat a select few colors and textures throughout. I chose gold, glass, and natural elements such as birch wood and magnolia leaves. The magnolia leaf garland is actually strung together by hand from clippings! The Palladio staff has several talented artists who collaborate in creating displays that inspire the designers and customers who shop with us.

The Hope Promise Ball

The first annual Hope Promise Gala was held to fund Dr. Joseph Ludwig’s Sarcoma Research at MD Anderson Cancer Center. The foundation was founded by chairman Kathleen Glass Burk, whose father lost his 3 year battle to sarcoma in 2012. Kathleen had made a promise to him to create hope for those diagnosed with sarcoma. Dr Ludwig’s microdevice does just that, and The Hope Promise Gala raised $125,000 to be donated directly to his research.

December is the month of abundance and assessment. We often take stock in the good and bad from the previous year and make our lists for the future. In fashion, much is the same as editors review the past trends, predict new ones, and watch what eventually rolls down the runway. One surprise trend was all the attention given to coats. There was a burst of creativity when it comes to outerwear for 2018 and local retailers have taken note. The day of this shoot was just what we needed- unexpected cold front, drizzling rain, and overcast skies. These wintery elements were the backdrop for our outdoor shoot along one of Memphis’ most recognizable urban revitalization stories- Historic Broad Avenue Arts District. This area is known for its colorful water tower, murals, and warehouse store fronts. All of it blended perfectly for our editorial featuring faux fur, puffy coats, and lots of layered cool.

There’s no place like home for the holidays…but it is nice to get out a bit too, and here is a varied list to events and places to which you might slip away should conversation with the family wear thin. December “goings around” mainly have a holiday theme, but there are some regular-type things mixed in as well. So as a palate cleanser between the office holiday party and the Sunday

school mixer, you might want to catch Sheila E. at the Halloran Centre or Maysey Craddock’s fine new work at the David Lusk Gallery. And when you are ready to immerse yourself in the spirit of the season, theater is a fine way to go with chestnuts such as Peter Pan and A Christmas Carol to the always unique and inspiring Madonna Learning Center play. - Ken Hall

ndeed, the holidays are a special time, during which we grasp the true essence of hospitality: making space for old (and new) friends and family. Space into our hearts,

homes, dining rooms, and elsewhere. In planning for a holiday gathering, equal time should be spent in planning for the most welcoming tablescape, as the time spent in planning for the perfect menu. For the table setting, choose a warm, inviting color scheme. (Do not shy from mixing patterns; make it fun!) Embellish with additional thoughtful pieces, such as place-cards, berry and floral stems, and candles. Always keep in mind that, how we share space with one another--whether that space be around a warm fireplace hearth, a living room, a holiday tree, or a dining table--is what matters most!

- Charles Stanley, Store Director, Babcock Gifts

Gilda’s Clubs across the US and Canada have been created in honor of comedian Gilda Radner, and now Memphians on their cancer journey will have this wonderful resource, too. Men, women and children with any type of cancer and their loved ones may join together to be uplifted and supported so that no one faces cancer alone. Gilda’s Club Memphis will be the hub for free social and emotional support programs through education workshops, healthy lifestyle programs, networking and social events. Donors and volunteers are needed to help move Gilda’s Club Memphis closer to opening its doors.

ARISE2Read is a partnership of evangelical churches and businesses with local school districts (currently supporting 35 schools in Shelby County) to strengthen the foundational literacy skills of second-grade students and enable them to enter third grade reading on grade level. They do this by recruiting volunteers who tutor students for one hour per week using a simple, but fun and engaging, sight word approach. Research shows that children living in poverty who are reading on grade level by the end of third grade have an 89% high school graduation rate.

CATHOLIC CHARITIES OF WEST TENNESSEE ccwtn.org ARISE 2 READ Arise2Read.org GILDA'S CLUB GildasClubMemphis.org

Catholic Charities of West Tennessee (CCWTN) serves as a first responder to poverty in the second-poorest city of one million or more in the U.S. Nearly one in four Memphians live in poverty, and nearly 40% of Memphis children live at or below the poverty line. They provide food, clothing, school supplies, hygiene kits and holiday food and gifts to those most in need through our Fig Tree Emergency Services program, and also offer a Housing Ministry to help the homeless. Their newest focus is ZIP code 38126 to collaborate with St. Patrick Community Outreach bringing resources to the most impoverished neighborhood in the city.

Sherry and Keith McClure, co-founders of Merge Memphis, a faith based 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Memphis, are full-time nurses trying to make a difference in the community. They cook and serve meals at The Opportunity Center, and little Free Pantries is designed to provide basic food items to families who live in underserved areas. One of the Merge Memphis programs, Warm Memphis, is where volunteers gather hats, gloves, and scarves for those in need. Other Merge Memphis programs include: Merge Dignity, Food Boxes, and Sheltering Homeless Women.

MIFA’s mission today is shaped by its founders’ vision 50 years ago, and that mission continues to bring us together joining hands and hearts in serving at-risk seniors and families each day. The meals on wheels that help sustain vulnerable seniors means health, companionship and independence, and the emergency services that help families overcome periods of crisis to remain in their homes, positively affect thousands of lives. As a golden anniversary gift to the Memphis area, MIFA recently unveiled MIFA Center for CommUNITY, a website where you can discover how to be part of a transformational force in our city – serving together to build community.

Carpenter Art Garden serves over 125 youth after school each week and is an independent 501(c)3, founded in 2012. Their vision is to empower the children of Binghampton to create their best futures. They do this through their mission - working with the children of Binghampton to promote each one's creativity and self-worth through exposure to artistic, educational, and vocational programs. Carpenter Art Garden is also home of the Grizzlies yard hearts. Invented by Art Garden member, Donté, you can see these symbols of local pride, love, and hope in yards all over Memphis.

RedZone Ministries, (RZ) is an evangelical outreach ministry that targets urban young people between the ages of 6-18 who live in Memphis’ most under-served communities. Young people at this age are making critical life decisions that will affect the rest of their lives. RZ is a holistic, community-based ministry that takes an incarnational approach to evangelism. Currently, RedZone Ministries focuses in communities in Northwest, Northeast, Southeast, and Southwest Memphis. The staff of RZ has access to 12 elementary, middle, and high schools and to literally thousands of young people.

Memphis Music Initiative invests in youth through transformative music engagement, creating equitable opportunities for black and brown youth in Memphis. We invest in two ways: through direct programs that connect youth to high-quality in-school, after-school and summertime opportunities, and by providing funding and resources to advance organizations working with young people. MMI provides internships at music and arts organizations to high school students each year through MMI Works and places working musicians in classrooms throughout the city as Music Engagement Teaching Fellows.

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis partners with people in our community to help them build or improve places they can call home through new home construction, rehabilitation projects and Aging in Place accessibility and mobility modifications for seniors. Since 1983, Memphis Habitat has helped more than 500 first-time homebuyers secure affordable mortgages and completed rehabilitation and home modification projects in partnership with more than 400 local homeowners, helping them achieve the independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.

Church Health is a charitably-funded, faith-based organization that provides comprehensive healthcare to uninsured patients in Memphis. In 2017, Church Health patient visits exceeded 54,000, with the majority of patients living at or below the federal poverty level. Church Health integrates health coaching, behavioral health, nutrition and even legal support to complement medical, dental, physical rehabilitation, eye care and outreach services. With the generous support of volunteer providers, donors and community partners, Church Health works to improve health and well-being so that people can manage and mitigate illness and pain to experience the full richness of life.

Sponge Cake: 5 eggs 130 grams sugar 100 grams flour 30 grams corn starch 40 grams dark cocoa powder Separate eggs. Whip egg white and add 65 grams of sugar to yolks. Beat very well. Add yolk and sugar to meringue and add sifted flour & cocoa powder to the mix. Spread out on cookie sheet and cook for 10 minutes at 350 degrees with a high fan.

South of Beale

Jack and Coke Bread Pudding Cola Reduction 2 liters cola Ice Cream 2 cups milk 1 cup sugar 4 cups heavy cream 3/4 cup whiskey Bread Pudding 9 egg yolks 3/4 cup sugar 3 cups heavy cream 6 cups chopped bread Cola reduction: First, pour the cola into a medium sauce pot and bring to boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and reduce the cola down until one-quarter of the liquid remains, about 30 minutes. Chill to room temperature.

Ice cream: While the cola is reducing on the stove, take the milk and sugar and bring to a simmer in medium saucepan to dissolve the sugar. Once the milk is warm, combine with the heavy cream and whiskey; this is your ice cream base. Pour the base into an ice cream machine and blend until a thick consistency is reached. Place in a freezable container and freeze for additional hour to firm the ice cream. Bread pudding: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. While the ice cream is finishing, place the yolks in a medium mixing bowl. Add the sugar to the yolks and beat until fully incorporated. Slowly pour the cream into the egg mixture, stirring constantly, and when all the cream is mixed together add half of your cola reduction, saving the other half for garnishing. Cut the bread into bite-size pieces and evenly distribute in a 9”x12”non-stick pan. Pour the cream mixture over the bread and press down so that the bread absorbs the cream. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, uncover and bake for additional 15 minutes. The pudding should have firm consistency and slight browning on top. Remove from the oven. While the bread pudding is still warm to the touch, cut out circles with a round cookie cutter and place in serving bowls. Scoop one spoonful of ice cream on top of the bread pudding and garnish by drizzling cola reduction over the top. December 2018

Editor’s Note

FASHION

I never used to understand how people could feel anxious or stressed during Christmas. I always thought one sip of hot cocoa and one glimpse of the snowflakes hung all down Poplar had the power to calm the most bothersome of nerves. Now, with many college deadlines approaching on December 1st and exams just around the corner, I understand that not all stress can be cured with Christmas joy. While Christmas doesn’t necessarily cure stress, it can distract from it. Here is a comprehensive list of 10 fun things to make sure you do over the course of December.

7. New Year’s at Noon: This event, which gives children the opportunity to experience New Years, takes place at the Children’s Museum of Memphis on December 31st. The museum hosts a themed party with crafts stations and face painting while the kids await the stroke of noon.

1. Memphis Holiday Parade: December 1st, see the parade down Beale Street to get into the Christmas spirit!

9. Liberty Bowl: Be sure to get tickets to the 60th annual Autozone Liberty Bowl on December 31st at 2:45 CST.

2. St. Jude Marathon: Whether you are running or just cheering people on, come support our local heroes at the St. Jude marathon and half-marathon on December 1st. 3. Christmas at Graceland: If you are a Christmas lights fanatic and Starry Nights wasn’t enough, be sure to stop by Graceland for lights with a Memphis feel.

8. Starry Nights: From the comfort of your car, see some of the best lights Memphis has to offer displayed in Shelby Farms park from now to December 28th.

10. Memphis Zoo: The Memphis Zoo is not only home to some of the best lights in Memphis, Zoo Lights, but also holds one of the city’s two ice rinks. Here, you can grab a cup of hot chocolate, stroll around the zoo while looking at lights, and go ice skating all in one night.

4. Holiday Tree Lights and Decorations: Head downtown to the Peabody lobby to enjoy their decorations and Christmas lights. Bring the whole family for music, food, and of course the ducks!

The Influence Of Memphis Art Teachers There sits a blank canvas, new and ready to be painted on. With every brushstroke and every flick of paint a picture begins to form. It takes time and consistent effort to transform the once blank canvas into a masterpiece. All around Memphis art teachers, such as Mrs. Janis McCarty, Mrs. Allison Webb and Mrs. Jennifer Burford, are guiding students on the journey of becoming artists. -Mary Katherine Kruczek

Meet Mrs. Janis McCarty - St. Agnes Academy ‘s high school art teacher of Art 2, 3, and AP and sponsor of the school’s art and literary magazine, Calliope. An artist and teacher for many years, Mrs. McCarty “truly cannot live without putting paint on canvas” and thanks God often that He “blessed [her] with students to teach.” Beloved by her many students, Mrs. McCarty teaches with a contagious passion, and her art shines through in all of her work. She encourages her students to practice the skills they develop in her classroom in all aspects of their lives. She feels that high school artists can have a strong impact in their communities by incorporating their “fresh, new and full of promise” teenage outlook in community events such as art festivals, volunteer work, and fundraising for the arts. In teaching her students, Mrs. McCarty hopes that they will grow to cherish their artistic gifts from God and remember that “comparison is the thief of joy,” a phrase plastered on her classroom wall as a daily reminder. Additionally, she hopes her students will learn to persevere when things become difficult, in their art and in life, because “sometimes tears make us stronger and more resilient.” In her many years of teaching, Mrs. McCarty has found that she has in fact learned from her students, stating that they have taught her she “can still be young no matter what age [her] driver’s license says.” Most importantly Mrs. McCarty teaches her students to be “lifelong creators and find joy and passion in the process” of their creativity.

By: Ruth Ellen Berry St. George’s Independent School is overwhelmingly blessed to have an adored art teacher like Mrs. Allison Webb. Mrs. Webb spends her time on the Collierville campus teaching Middle and Upper School students, and they use her guidance to advance and grow confident in their creativity. In the classroom, she desires to help young artists understand the uplifting process of rebounding from failure and the importance of failing with grace. This life lesson is “a huge quality that every student should learn before they move on to the next step in their journey.” Mrs. Webb is repeatedly surprised by the unique creativity that is in every St. George student, and says that the diverse intellectuals at this school inevitably “always hit [her] with a new perspective on something, and it’s awesome.” In the atmosphere of a community, Mrs. Webb advises campus artists to help influence younger students and to use their voices in helping others get involved; while making their own, individual art in their freetime, students will discover their own identity as an artist as well. While also being a mother and wife at home, she continues to create her own, personal pieces on the side, and expresses her opinion that, as an art influencer, “if [she] is making art then [she is] more relevant in teaching art.”

By: Annelise Griffin

Mrs. Jennifer Burford is a passionate and inspiring art teacher at Collierville High School. This year will be her 25th year of teaching art students and her contributions to the art community have not gone unnoticed. She received the Rotary Club Teacher of the Month award in March 2007 and February 2014 and the Tennessee Governor’s School for the Arts- Outstanding Teacher Award, Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers”. She encourages her students to create personal artwork that “makes a statement” and incorporates their own values and ideals to make an impact in their communities. She hopes that by doing so they learn to “appreciate the beauty and process of art and gain confidence in their skills.” Mrs. Burford also motivates her students to learn and understand various forms of art by urging them to visit galleries and museums and attend local art shows in Memphis. Through her joyous years of teaching she has learned the “diversity of each student” and how “no two students are alike” which enables her to attain a different approach specifically tailored to each student’s abilities. She aims for students to be persistent and driven by their artwork. “Being an artist is like being a musician or an athlete... you must practice on a regular basis... sometimes daily.” As a painter and printmaker, she continues her passion for art and displays her brilliant pieces. She participates annually in the Double Decker Festival in Oxford, Mississippi among other shows such as the MGAL Autumn Show, WTAEA Teacher Art Exhibit, and her one man show at the Collierville Morton Museum in 2014.

BRIARCREST SAINTS VOLLEYBALL In an intense matchup between the Baylor Red Raiders of Chattanooga, and the Briarcrest Christian School Saints of Memphis, the fans at Middle Tennessee State University have never seen such an electrifying game of volleyball. With their determined work ethic and amazing teamwork the Briarcrest volleyball team has conquered yet another Division 2 AA title. The Saints ended the 2018-2019 season with fourty wins, two losses and a ranking of #15 in the country. The team was led by senior, Alabama commit, Aliyah Wells, who by the end of the state tournament, was named Most Valuable Player. As well as Aliyah’s commitment to Alabama, the Saints have two other notable commitments, junior Loren Robertson with the University of Memphis Tigers and senior Madison Spiva with the Christian Brothers University Bucs. Alongside four seniors last season, the Saints volleyball team created a memory to last a lifetime.

Memphis State Champions By: Kara Kane

HOUSTON MUSTANGS SOCCER A hard fought battle in the 2018 Class AAA Girls Soccer State Championship game in Murfreesboro allowed the Houston Mustangs one more shot to take on the Collierville Dragons. Houston came into the game as defending state champions had a lot to live up to as they were ranked fifth nationally and first in the state. Houston also came into the match with a previous 2-1 loss to Collierville in the regular season finale. With about ten minutes left in the second half, Arkansas commit, Cara Young shot and scored. All throughout the game Young displayed the determination and hard work the team needed to secure the game. The 1-0 win put the Mustangs back on top. This win distinguishes Houston’s third state championship in four years. 80
