What If Church Tore Up The Sunday Program And Just Followed The Living Jesus Christ?

When Christ is present, church needs no program.  Jesus said: “Follow Me,” (not: “Follow a program,”). He also said: “I am the way,” (not: “A program is the way,”). And His mother said: “Whatever He says to you, do it,” (not: “Whatever a program says, do it,”),

If a gathered group of Christ-followers
Would each one say and do,
Just what the Holy Spirit
Prompted them to,
The presence of God 
Would become so clear,
In ways that no man
Could engineer.

Participatory church is God’s variety pack; new and fresh every meeting as the Holy Spirit prompts ordinary people to show and tell what the living, resurrected Jesus is doing in 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.
