Loving in a Busy Life

Loving in a Busy Life

by Johnny Fusilier, City Church Deacon

My wife and I have five young children ranging from five months to eight years old. We both work, are involved at City Church and in our community, and have a large extended family in the Houston area. It feels like there is always an event to attend or a family member to visit. Our calendars can be so full that we forget to make time for those closest to us. At the beginning of the school year, I decided that we were going to make the best of some of the mundane parts of life together. Specifically, I wanted to be intentional with our morning commute.

When Life gets in the way of marriage

When Life gets in the way of marriage

by Ayo Omopariola, Pastoral Resident

“When a man opens a car door for his wife, it’s either a new car or a new wife.”

That quote by Prince Philip makes me smile because it reminds me of a comment an old friend made years ago when he saw me opening the car door for my now wife. Giggling, he essentially said, “You won’t be doing that after you get married.” I was determined to prove him wrong, but I must confess he was right. There are still those rare instances when I remember, but it’s nowhere near the same frequency as when we were dating (my wife will tell you that too).

2020 Vision

Can you believe the 2020s are here? The new decade invites us to sharpen our focus—to recover twenty-twenty vision! It’s all too easy, given our fast-paced lives cluttered with distractions, to lose focus, let our vision blur, and even lose our way.  As we embark upon the new decade, our first series is designed to refresh our focus on our vision.

The Struggle of Giving

by Erica & Mark DiBella

Astros World Series tickets. The iPhone 11 or is it 12 now? That upgrade to our house. That new car. Just a few of the things we’ve convinced ourselves that we need. Time after time we confuse desires with necessities, convincing ourselves that what we want is what we need.

Stock Giving

Did you know estimates show that ministries receive up to 95% of their charitable receipts through gifts of cash, yet 90% of the wealth held in America is in some form of non-cash, often highly appreciated assets?

Advent Reflection: Joy to the World

Miles Davis said, "In music, silence is more important than sound." If that is true for people, think of what God can do. Think of what God has done. There were four hundred years of silence and then came the baby's cry with a host of angels. What a chorus.

Advent Reflection: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

Advent Reflection: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

by Claire Berger & Linc Ashby

This coming Sunday we will sing, "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel." The simple song full of complex emotions matches, in a way, what can be an emotionally complex time of year. We rejoice with songs and gifts and twinkling lights and warm, peppermint beverages. And we also long for Christ to come again and make the broken whole; the longing made all the more acute with the expectations that come with the lights and the peppermint.
