A Bleak (oops I mean Black) Friday Thought:

black friday

We shop for stuff thinking stuff will satisfy the seeking, striving, and searching of our soul. Sadly, surrounded with stuff upon stuff, our soul still starves!

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

    Agreed. Our kids get four gifts
    1) gold gift, a skill or memory that will last forever.
    Ex- spending Christmas in the mountains, books

    2) swaddling clothes, they get clothes for their growing bodies

    3) frankensence, something fostering their relationship with God
    Ex- bible, veggietales

    4) myrrh, something temporal and fun
    Ex- Legos, doll, toys
