Let Jesus Run The Sunday Church Service

Come to Berry Street and see
The Holy Spirit set free,
No program, no plan led by man;
Why should we run things when God can?
We gather as “two or more”
Then let Jesus have the floor;
And He opens Heaven’s door.
–Sundays @ 10:45, 225 Berry St., Nashville, 37207.

One Sunday At Berry Street

Tapan Saha was raised a Hindu. He became a Christmas Bell Ringer for The Salvation Army Berry Street Worship Center in Nashville, TN and then began attending on Sundays. Tapan says: “After attending Berry Street Worship Center for awhile, I started changing. I could feel the Holy Spirit embracing me. I am now a Christian with the sole intent to follow Jesus Christ for the rest of my life.’

“It is always precious when God demonstrates His willingness to speak to and through what society regards as ‘the least of these.’ He loves to bypass the flashy, the important, and the impressive in favor of the children, the disabled, and the poor (Luke 10:21). Those with ears to hear the Lord through the little ones are in for a kingdom feast.” –Brad Jersak


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.
