“That Flag Into This Neighborhood”

“That Flag Into This Neighborhood”

A group was prayer walking down a drug infested street in East Nashville when a tough looking man demanded: “What flag is that?” I told him that it stood for the blood of Jesus and the fire of the Holy Spirit.  His mouth fell open and he said:  “For you to bring that flag into this neighborhood, you gotta be from God.

Then he said:  “If I had grown up under a flag like that my life would have been different!”

Do you want your faith to do more than just take you to Heaven?  Do you want it to make a practical difference in the world around you?

Come and visit The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry St., in Nashville on Sunday mornings at 10:45 and see bold, practical Christianity in action as everyday people show and tell what God is doing in and through their lives.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
