Church — A Bottled Water Plant? or A Mighty, Whitewater River

Church — A bottled water plant? or A mighty, whitewater river?

Contemporary church is too often like a bottled water plant. People sit passively, like flimsy plastic bottles in a row, hoping to receive a single squirt of water from a special spout.

Maybe God wants His church to be like a gushing, whitewater river. Perhaps He wants people to be buoyantly swept along in the current of His Spirit, demonstrating His power and presence to one another and to the world.

Experience whitewater church at The Salvation Army Berry Street in Nashville, Tennessee on Sundays at 10:45 am. and Tuesdays at 6:00 pm. — 225 Berry St. 37207.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. 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 co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
