“I think it’s generally understood that there’s a bit of Mississippi in everything I do,” said renown artist and Mathiston native, William Dunlap.
Dunlap is one of several acclaimed Mississippi artists (past and present) whose work will be on display Sept. 1-29 at Mississippi State University’s Cullis Wade Depot Art Gallery as part of the “Narrative of the Land” travelling exhibit titled, “Art Across Mississippi: Twelve Exhibitions, Twelve Communities.” It is one of 12 exhibitions travelling across the state in celebration of Mississippi’s bicentennial. Located on the second floor of the University’s Welcome Center, “Narratives of the Land” features quintessential scenes of Mississippi landscapes created by artists Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-65), Ke Francis (1945-), William “Bill” Dunlap (1944-) and Eudora Welty (1909-2001).

“Hopefully the students will go to church when they are back home,” Griffith said. “A church could also reach out their students while they’re away.”
Griffith said when he was a student at Mississippi State, the associate pastor from his home church (located five hours away) came all the way to Starkville to take him and others from his home church out to dinner and to visit.
“That’s a great move for a church!” Griffith said.

Rebecca Tabb of R. Tabb & Company, said blush and burgundy are “big colors this fall,” which coordinates perfectly with the team colors of our favorite college football team.
She said another “huge” fall trend is ripped or distressed jeans. She also said booties and over-the-knee boots will also be big this fall.
“And for Mississippi weather, layering is a must,” Tabb said. “Light weight jackets and long cardigan sweaters will also be big this fall.”

Hugh Griffith, director of the Wesley Foundation at Mississippi State University, said college students are going to grow and develop in some way — positively or negatively — during their college experience, so it is urgent and crucial that students grow and develop in good and godly ways.
“College students are ‘good soil,’ to borrow the image from Jesus’ parable in Matthew 13,” Griffith said. “There’s urgency in the fact not only good seed grows in good soil, but whatever is planted in good soil will grow and bear fruit, whether the fruit is desirable or not.

There are a wide variety of campus ministries for students to experience on campus this fall, and many students who are in the area over the weekends may have the opportunity to visit local churches. Continue reading
