326 E Tyler St

Posted by Bill Lovell on

It's official. We've moved to 326 E Tyler St, Richardson, TX 75081. As of last Friday, March 29, our new neighborhood is called Highland Terrace, a wonderful mixture of ages, ethnicities, and economic and social statuses. Our across-the-street neighbor is a lovely artist; there's a very cool...

Our Meandering Way

Posted by Bill Lovell on

Our family moved into 14527 Meandering Way on Tuesday, November 25, 1997—almost twenty-two years ago. When we arrived, our kids were just...kids. Grace was seven, William was five, John was four, Mary was two, and our youngest James was just two months! I was a youthful thirty-nine, and my...

The Anti-Gospel of Brenton Tarrant

Posted by Bill Lovell on

Brenton Tarrant, the Christchurch murderer, is a monstrously evil racist with a sick and deluded mind, but he is at least honest. Prior to his violent rampage in which he gunned down over fifty unarmed Muslim men, women and children gathered for a prayer meeting, he typed out what has been...

Pray & Guard

Posted by Bill Lovell on

The book of Nehemiah tells the story of a Jewish exile who was tasked by God to lead the Jewish people in rebuilding the holy city of Jerusalem. There were enemies all around them who opposed God's purpose and sought to steal and kill and cause confusion. In Nehemiah 4:9, Nehemiah said that...

State of the Church

Posted by Bill Lovell on

Our annual Congregational Meeting on Sunday, February 17, was a great opportunity to reflect on last year (with gratitude to God) and to think and pray about next year (with hope and confidence). After electing two outstanding new officers, Larry Perry as Ruling Eder and Josh Wyman as Deacon, I...

Leaders for Today and Tomorrow

Posted by Bill Lovell on

One of the highlights of this coming Sunday's Annual Congregational Meeting will be the election of a new Deacon and a new Ruling Elder. Last Spring the members of the church nominated three candidates—Brian Laird, Larry Perry, and Josh Wyman—to begin the process of preparation...

God Is Pro-Life, and So Are We

Posted by Bill Lovell on

I've been thinking a lot lately about the holiness of human life. Maybe it's because we marked Sanctity of Human Life Sunday just a few weeks ago on January 20. Maybe it's because of recent highly-publicized legislation in New York which opened the door for expanded abortion rights up to the...

Reflections on Stan

Posted by Bill Lovell on

My friend Stan Hampton died last week. He'd been sick for a long time, but his death still wound up catching me by surprise. In the end, it wasn't his weak heart that got him, but a series of other health issues that I hardly even understand—involving an infection, a brain hemorrhage, and...
