A Season not Just a Day

Posted by Bill Lovell on

Easter is a season not just a single day. The season is based on the Gospel accounts of Jesus' activities between the time when he was raised from the dead and when he sent the Holy Spirit.  Traditionally Christians have taken these fifty days—from Easter Sunday up to Pentecost...

The Essential Resurrection

Posted by Bill Lovell on

Easter is just days away! Several of us at Christ Church Carrollton will gather on Good Friday, April 19, at 6:30pm to reflect on the crucifixion, and then we will gather again on Easter morning, April 21, at 10:30am to celebrate the resurrection. Were it not for Easter, Good Friday wouldn't be...

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...

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...

Babes in Christ

Posted by Bill Lovell on

My family and I are just back from a wonderful family reunion in Colorado Springs. One of the highlights was seeing the twelve youngest cousins getting to know each other. Several had never met, and, outside of their individual family units, none of them really knew each other. After four...

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...

Dr. Ron Anderson

Posted by Bill Lovell on

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...

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...

As Any Have Need

Posted by Bill Lovell on

One of the most attractive qualities of the early church was its radical generosity. Acts 2:45, for instance, says of the Pentecost church: "And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need." To be honest, if I didn't believe in...
