Your next door neighbor? The colleague you like to joke with in the employee lounge? Your aunt grieving a recent loss? That relative who sometimes talks dismissively about Christianity? The nice couple you met last week on the Square? Your best friend? Your worst enemy? The stranger you just...

Beating the Bounds 2019

Posted by Bill Lovell on

Several years ago, I was visiting London on Ascension Day when I had the chance to observe an ancient custom called "Beating the Bounds." I can't even remember which Anglican church I was visiting, but I'll never forget the Vicar saying that, for almost 800 years, Christians had marched around...

One of our church's goals is to engage our community for Christ. One way I have sought to do that is by making myself available to pray in a wide variety of public settings. Just this week, our County Commissioner, my friend J.J. Koch, asked me to pray for the Dallas County Commissioners Court...

Our Church Driveway

I often call I-35E Christ Church Carrollton's driveway. Interstate 35 runs from Laredo, Texas, to Duluth, Minnesota, stretching 1,568 miles--virtually border to border--making it the nation's ninth-longest Interstate and the third-longest north-south Interstate. It splits between...

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...
