A Powerful Way To Light Your Fire!

1) Unrehearsed, heart-felt, Spirit-prompted words connect hearts and ignite spiritual fires.*
2) Rehearsed, studied, formalized words leave hearts unconnected and minds muted; and promptly depart the human memory.
* Light your fire!  Experience #1 with us @ The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry Street, Nashville Tennessee, 37207 on Sunday mornings @ 10:45.

Bible teaching and preaching are readily available when we are alone — through CDs, YouTube, radio, ministry web sites, apps, television, and even books.  However, sharing the blessings and concerns on our heart, face-to-face with other believers, cannot be done alone.

Perhaps we should allow people the time and opportunity in church meetings to share testimonies, words of encouragement, needs, gifts of the Spirit, Scriptures, prayers, etc. with one another.  (They can’t get that on their on, so if they don’t get it in church meetings, they will miss out on the life-transforming ministry of the body of Christ to one another.)

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.
