Did Catherine Booth encourage Quaker-style meetings?

For almost 7 years, we at The Salvation Army Berry Street Worship Center in Nashville, TN have (instead of a 1-man sermon) been having participatory, Quaker-style, Sunday morning worship meetings where everyday people show and tell what God has done.  We are the only Salvation Army corps (church) I know of that meets like that.

Today I was reading The Salvation Army co-founder’s, Catherine Booth’s, sermon called “Aggressive Christianity” and I came across these words:

“Have meetings like the Friends (Quakers) if you like.”

Wow!  How encouraging that our non-traditional meetings were encouraged by Catherine Booth!

If you are in the Nashville area, come visit us and check out the Street-talk @ 225 Berry St., 37207 on Sunday mornings at 10:45 & Tuesday nights at 6:00.

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
