Daily Bible study is a hallmark of serious discipleship. Reading the Bible and reflecting on it, every day, does more than almost anything else to help each of us to grow in Christ. Even a modest investment of time and effort, with God's grace, produces a bountiful harvest. A daily devotional...

Love God & Love Neighbor

Posted by Bill Lovell on

"Love God & Love Neighbor." That's the theme of this year's annual General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America. Representatives from PCA churches all across the country (including me) are gathering in Atlanta for a week of Biblical refection on Jesus' Greatest Commandment: "The...

Your Health is Dear to the Lord

Posted by Bill Lovell on

God cares about every aspect of your life, both physical and spiritual. In the Bible, he teaches us both what is good for us and what hurts us--not detailed scientific lists, but loving principles. In everything from the dietary laws of Deuteronomy and Leviticus to the wisdom of the Proverbs...

Christ's Church in Carrollton

Posted by Bill Lovell on

Christ Church Carrollton (Texas) met for the very first time on Sunday, July 18, 2010, but Christ's Church in Carrollton began a long time before we showed up--on May 10, 1846, to be exact--just ten years after the Alamo--when a band of Christian pioneers from Carrollton, Illinois, met together...

Earlier today I made the one-hour round trip to and from Parkland Hospital. Have you been there lately? It really is quite extraordinary! As I parked and made my way inside, I immediately formed two opinions: (1) I was amazed by the size, beauty and technological sophistication of Dallas...

Parish Prayer

Posted by Bill Lovell on

One of my greatest hopes for Christ Church Carrollton is that we will grow in our commitment to prayer! The observable fact is, there are very few clearer indicators of a church's overall spiritual health than its commitment to prayer. Where churches earnestly pray, there is always life and...

Godspeed in Carrollton

Posted by Bill Lovell on

Last week, I posted on the Christ Church website a link to a ministry called "LiveGodspeed." If you click on the link, the first thing you'll see is a video called "Godspeed: The Pace of Being Known." I highly recommend it. "Godspeed" tells the story of Matt Canlis, a young American who went to...

Sing to the Lord

Posted by Bill Lovell on

On Tuesday night, I was one of 500 people who attended a performance at Park Cities Presbyterian Church of the St. Paul's Cathedral Boys Choir from London, England. It was a great joy to hear these 23 enormously talented young people singing a diverse repertoire of choral music stretching back...
