Benjamin Franklin & Sermon Free Church

I think Benjamin Franklin would have loved sermon-free church because it gets people actively involved and transforms them from passive pew-sitters to spiritual go-getters!

Ben said: “I wish it (Christianity) were more productive of good works. I mean real good works; not holy-day keeping, sermon-hearing, or making long prayers, filled with flatteries and compliments”

Tell-me-and-I-forget-teach-me-and-I-may-remember-involve-me-and-I-learnExperience sermon-free church for yourself in Nashville, Tennessee at The Salvation Army Berry Street Worship Center, 225 Berry Street 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.
