Publisher's Description

What if, instead of contempt, familiarity bred love?

It seems as if the more we get to know one another, the more we are disappointed. When the scars of our friends, family, and neighbors are exposed, we are tempted to turn and run.
 
But there is another way.
 
Pastor and storyteller Rich Perez casts vision for what it might look like to pursue love--love expressed with eyes wide open--in the context of the real world. Because love is not primarily a feeling, an emotion, or a sentiment, Perez challenges readers through a combination of memoir and teaching to take a different path than the momentum that carries the culture we live in. With the flavor of Washington Heights, New York, readers will be transported into Perez's neighborhood on a journey to learn how to love again.

Author Bio

Through a variety of speaking experiences, Rich Perez has grown into a unique storyteller and thought-leader in faith, family, the arts, and the Hispanic-American experience. In 2011 Rich and his family led a team of friends into his hometown neighborhood (Washington Heights), and started a church that would embrace the very values with which they lived. Rich is the lead pastor of Christ Crucified Fellowship in New York City, where he lives with his wife and kids.

    Mi Casa UpTown brought me on a journey through areas I remember passing through on the subway or on the way into the city from Brooklyn or Long Island. I heard car horns, the smell of the air, the bounce of a small red ball against the buildings. Mi Casa reminds us that we as followers and believers of Jesus are not meant to do life alone, we are to do life in a Christ- centered community, plant roots, build families, love our neighbors and trust Jesus. Each neighborhood has its own story, Washington Heights, way at the top of the subway map has a story, Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, way at the bottom of the subway map has a story.

    For the needy will not always be forgotten; the hope of the oppressed will not perish forever. Psalm 9:18. In a society that is so rush, rush, a city that never sleeps, the latest iPhone or material item that takes our eye off the prize is not worth it. The real work comes in loving, building up and considering others above yourself. It takes faith to die for yourself. If we truly want to live like Christ, we have to allow everyone to see our imperfections, if we present ourselves as perfect than we are not letting real relationships to form and grow. We are by far from perfect. Simply put, the way to love someone well is to share your life with them, the bad as much as the good. The things worth challenging as much as the things worth celebrating.

    I love that Rich can find so many opportunities in a city that never sleeps and is always on the move, this is still plenty of life and beauty in Washington Heights. Rich wove stories of biblical people like John and Paul into everyday life, made me stop and rethink my perspective on how I need to live out my life. Job well done Pastor Rich, you are a gifted story teller, thank you for capturing it and writing a book. A journey on how to love again. I highly recommend Mi Casa UpTown.
