Je suis en Christ!

In a world where the words “Thou shall not kill,” are no longer in our vocabulary — Je suis en Christ!

In a world full of mean words and violent actions — Je suis en Christ!

In a world full of self-focus and pleasure-seeking — Je suis en Christ!

In a world that hurts people so badly that they seek to hurt other people — Je suis en Christ!

In a world loaded with technology but lacking in love and kindness — Je suis en Christ!

In a world “doing what feels good” — Je suis en Christ!

In a world where people would rather hurt than heal one another — Je suis en Christ!

In a world that puts self-interest above human life — Je suis en Christ!

In a world where national interests, ideology, or religion trump love — Je suis en Christ!

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
