Ed Young, Jr., pastor of Fellowship Church in Grapevine, Texas, has been in talks with a Los Angeles producer and at least one network about him and his family starring in their own reality show.
“We have not signed anything,” Young was quoted as saying in a Dallas Morning News’ FD Luxe feature published online Thursday.
The lengthy feature titled, “Dear God: Is Dallas society ready for Fellowship Church’s sex-loving, million-dollar minister?” focuses on Pastor Young’s family life and successes in Christian ministry.
Young revealed that although his family has been “approached repeatedly over the years to do a show,” this was the first time they have felt at ease about moving forward, thanks to the unnamed Los Angeles producer who has so far pitched the idea to A&E Television.

I’ve been experiencing some weird database issues for a while and to make a long story short, my host provider moved this little blog to a new database. Because of that, I lost some recent posts and had to repost them, so that’s why some of you may be experiencing a bit of déjà vu. Unfortunately that means comments aren’t synced to their original posts, but that’s a small sacrifice for having things work smoothly when I’m creating content.
And now you know.
It took my a while to find him, and I could only do so after scanning the picture and being able to zoom. He’s in the middle without his leather helmet on standing next to the guy in the cap.
If my memory serves correct he told me this was some sort of semi-pro team. He had this one story about how he and and teammate teamed up to tackle this one guy where one hits high and the other hits low and it resulted in a broken leg for ball carrier. They went to visit the guy in the hospital and he said it was no big deal, breaking a leg is just part of the game.

WELLFLEET, Mass. – When 20-month-old Adelaida Kay Van Meter died of a rare genetic disease last winter, her father, Murro, gently carried her body out of the house to his wood shop in the pines near Gull Pond. He placed her in a small cedar box and surrounded her with ice packs. For three days, the little girl’s grieving parents were able to visit her and kiss her and hug her. Then, on the third day, after the medical examiner came to sign the last bit of paperwork, Van Meter and his wife, Sophia Fox, said good-bye to their baby, screwed the lid on the box and drove to a Plymouth, Mass. crematorium, where they watched the little coffin enter the furnace.
“We took care of Adelaida when she was an infant, we took care of her when she was healthy, we advocated for her in the hospital, we took care of her when she was sick,” her father said. “Why wouldn’t we take care of her when she was dead?” Sophia Fox added: “There was no way I was going to hand her over to some stranger at a funeral parlor where she’d be put in a refrigerator with a bunch of other dead bodies. This way was so much more natural. We saw the life leave her body and we were better able to let go.”
Death remains a topic that many of us would rather avoid. And when it comes to the actual nuts and bolts of caring for the dead, most of us tend to think it’s best — and furthermore, required by law — to let professional funeral arrangers handle the arrangements.
Well, it turns out that in most states it’s perfectly legal to care for your own dead.
