Broom Church or Single Straw Sermons

Which is more effective at releasing the Holy Spirit’s power and presence — broom church or single straw sermons?

All our focus on one straw can’t sweep a floor clean; but many straws, led together as a broom, can transform a room!

All our focus on one man talking week after week has been tried for centuries and has left our churches dry; but many men and women, ministering to each other as led by the Holy Spirit (see 1 Corinthians 14:26), can release the cleansing presence of Jesus into a room and sweep a church, a city, and a country with spiritual revival fires! (Perhaps we should give it a try.)

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 @
