A Rock On A Stage or Living Stones Built Into God’s House?

You can’t build something by simply setting one stone on a platform in front of a group of other stones. To build anything the stones must be assembled interactively.

The same is true of living stones. “You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”  (1 Peter 2:5 in the New Testament.)

It is a beautiful thing when Christ-followers assemble together interactively as the priesthood of believers, sacrificing their need for a man-made program, and humbly ministering to one another as led by the living, resurrected Jesus Christ.

Every Sunday at The Salvation Army Berry Street in Nashville we gather to allow the living, resurrected Jesus Christ to build us together as stones as ordinary people open their hearts with one another and share what God is doing in their lives.  10:45 am., 225 Berry St., 37207.

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.
