Participatory Church Reveals The Geode In U (The Geode Effect!)

Ordinary Christ-followers are like geodes. Geodes look like ordinary rocks, but inside they are full of beautifully colored crystal. When everyday believers share from their heart, their inner beauty shines forth.

Traditional church (focused on one man’s preaching) allows little or no opportunity for ordinary believers to speak from their heart. So their inner beauty remains hidden.

However participatory church allows anyone one present to open up and speak out of their love for God. The results are always amazing. “Christ in you, the hope of glory,” radiates from everyday brothers and sisters in Christ.

Experience the “geode effect” in participatory church, for yourself. Visit The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry St., Nashville, 37207 on Sundays at 10:45 am. — where ordinary believers show and tell what God has done!

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
