King David writes in Psalm 16, "the boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places." The phrase brings justice to mind because it begs the question, what happens to those for whom literal boundary lines do not fall in pleasant places? I am not talking about the distribution of good things, but the ability to live as a person with dignity.
We're eager to share these upcoming fall events with the City Church community. Please note the dates and times, and make it a priority to attend when you're able. We'd love for you to invite friends and help us spread the word about City Church this fall!
Filmmaker David Lynch said, “the whole world is wild at heart.” We’re all then, in a sense, people of the wild. And there’s no better place to turn for help than the book in the Bible written specifically for people who had spent their entire life wandering in the wilderness: Deuteronomy.
According to the Cubist painter Pablo Picasso, “It takes a very long time to become young.” Picasso’s paradoxical sentiment is meant to highlight that youth should not be a phase one grows “out of,” but rather a state of mind that one grows toward. While we may associate idealism, hopefulness, and various creative impulses with the young, it takes work to cultivate these good desires and maintain them throughout the mounting pressures of adult life (whatever we take “adult life” to mean!).
Generosity, the type that cuts across all of life, is a beautiful mark of a follower of Christ. While the biblical vision for generosity certainly includes much more than money, it does not include less.
Music can often help us process emotions and feelings in a way that mere words cannot. CIVIC CLUB's hope for the album, Known and Knowing, is that it will feed your soul with words that bring life and encouragement.
