Is It Nuts To Keep Church In A Shell?

Nuts & church? What do they have in common?

A nut in a shell is not very interesting. But take nuts out of their shells and they get real interesting — cashews, pecans, almonds, macadamia nuts, walnuts, peanuts, pistachios, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts — wow!

Here’s a secret to an inspiring church service and it’s not nutty. It actually produces much spiritual fruit in people’s lives. Perhaps we could allow ordinary people to come out of their Sunday morning shells and to openly testify in the meeting about what God is doing in their lives.
–When people share what is inspiring them, inspiration spreads and other people are inspired to share as well, creating contagious excitement.
–Experience this for yourself every Sunday morning at The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry St., Nashville, TN 37207 @ 10:45.


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 @
