Lights of the Round Table / Spirit-Prompted Church Meetings

King Arthur’s Knights of the Round Table reveal a biblical way of holding church meetings.

1)  The knights set at a round table so that no one, not even the king, could be at the head of the table and everybody could be involved as equal participants.

2) The knights had committed themselves to live by a moral code known as the Code of Chivalry.  Unlike many who call themselves Christians, King Arthur’s knights put moral principles and moral commitments above their personal desires, needs, cravings, or whims.

Church shines brightly when people committed to consistently follow and obey Christ meet as lights of the round table — a body of believers gathered together without hierarchy (see Matthew 20:25-28) where the living, resurrected Jesus Christ, as Head of the church, is allowed to shine through anybody present as they freely teach and minister to one another as prompted by the Holy Spirit.

Experience Round Table Church, where ordinary people show and tell what God has done, at The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry St., Nashville, 37207 on Sunday mornings at 10:45.

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.
