Confession: I had never belonged to a church small group before City Church. I didn’t see the need, really. I had always been surrounded by peers my age and community seemed easy enough to find.

Fast forward to a warm Tuesday night in 2015. We were in Houston, tackling my first ‘real’ job, as well as that most daunting of tasks—making friends as an adult.

My husband, Andrew, and I both come from large, Mediterranean families (think “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”). But living far from family has necessitated a reliance on friendships that, in turn, has shown us the beauty of community. We have found just such a loving community through our City Group!

His survival is marked not only by chalk lines cut into a cave wall, but also by intense, emotional silence.
