Mockingbird Conference, October 17th and 18th!

Posted in Uncategorized on September 26, 2014 by epiphanytyler


Mockingbird is a ministry that seeks to connect the Christian faith with the realities of everyday life in fresh and down-to-earth ways. It does this primarily, but not exclusively, via publications, conferences, and online resources.

This October, at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in Houston, TX, we invite you to explore “The Risk of Grace” with us, how the Gospel fearlessly addresses and liberates the control freak in us all.

To those struggling under the burden of self-reliance—exhausted by the rat race of comparison and performance—the Gospel is more than good news, it is the best news, a doorway to both freedom and peace.

The cost of the conference is $60.
Pre-register here:

Depending on how many people go, we will take a church van or carpool down on Thursday evening to save on gas.
Robert Finney is looking into cheap economical housing for college students.

Grace works without requiring anything on our part. It’s not expensive. It’s not even cheap. It’s free.– Robert Capon.

College Dinners & Film Discussions: Les Miserables

Posted in Uncategorized on August 22, 2014 by epiphanytyler



Mme. Gilot:  ‘What crime did you commit?’

Valjean:  ‘Maybe I killed someone… How do you know I’m not going to murder *you*?’

Bishop: How do you know *I’m* not going to murder *you*?

Jean Valjean: What’s that, a joke?

Bishop: I suppose we’ll have to trust each other.


The Epiphany College Community hosts Dinner / Discussions for college students at my house (806, South Donnybrook) every Thursday night from 6-8 PM.  This fall, instead of video teaching clips, we will be watching short segments of films, beginning with the 1998 version of Les Miserables (the one with Liam Neeson), and talking about them.  If you are a college student, we would love to have you join us (and bring a friend). Questions?  Facebook message me, email me at, or text me at 903-279-2509.



PS:  FREE DINNER!  (you caught that, right?)
