UGA Legend & 2 time Super Bowl Winner Hines Ward was on the sidelines in Athens yesterday for Spring practice.

As any Dawg fan not living under a rock knows, Hines has said his “ultimate dream job” is to Coach at UGA, but I highly doubt that will ever happen. Regardless, it’s always great to have Hines back home. Damn Good Dawg indeed!

I believe that shame produces nothing, creates nothing, and leads to nothing. However, when someone loses hope and some crazy second chance person comes into their life, things start to change. The best thing we can do when someone fails is to run to him or her and infuse so much hope, to a ridiculous level, to the point that he or she can see a sunlit future again.

God hasn’t called us to “repeat the obvious,” that people have sinned (…pretty sure they know it), but to show them a bright future which they never dreamed possible.

Best blog post I’ve read in ages.

“Lord Jesus, Son of the living God, help us to believe that you are the world’s true king, and to turn back from all that gets in the way of your rule in our lives.” // NT Wright
A prayer for Lent day 4. Just read this prayer on Matt Chambers’ blog Ethoshift and thought it was so beautiful.

Since childhood, my favorite movie has been The Bishop’s Wife. So when Whitney Houston signed on with Courtney B. Vance & Denzel Washington to do the remake The Preacher’s Wife, my Mom took me to the theater on opening night. 

Whitney sang numerous times throughout the film, but the song that’s never left me is her performance with the Georgia Mass Choir in “I Love The Lord.” And she did, deeply. The last song she sang publicly before leaving this world was her own rendition of “Jesus Loves Me.” How apropos. I like to think she’s sitting at the feet of Christ today singing & worshiping Him. Hallelujah.

"I will sing unto the Lord because He hath dwelt bountifully with me." Psalms 13:6

Rest in peace, Whitney Houston.

The Southern Foodways Alliance, an institute of the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi, documents, studies, and celebrates the diverse food cultures of the changing American South. (To learn more about our work, visit southernfoodways.org.)

Over the last decade, the SFA has collected more than 500 oral histories and produced more than 30 films. We have trained our lenses on North Carolina pitmasters and Louisiana bartenders. We’ve captured the stories of Alabama shrimpers and Arkansas caviar fishermen. We’ve chronicled the work of Georgia cattlemen and Tennessee fried chicken cooks.

We have not, however, made a long-form documentary, aimed at chronicling the depth and breadth of Southern food culture. Until now. Directed by Joe York and produced by John T. Edge and Andy Harper, PRIDE & JOY is that film.

In this hour-long, ready-to-air documentary, we focus on the tradition-bearers of Southern food culture. We present intimate portraits of people and places while asking important questions about our common culture:

* What do foodways tell us about who we are as Southerners?

* How and why do traditional foodways endure?

* As the South’s ethnic and racial makeup shifts, how do regional foodways change?

PRIDE & JOY stands not as the final word on Southern food, but as an introduction to the ways in foodways offers insights on the region’s complex history and bright future.
