Karaoke-style church, anyone?

Spiritual karaoke anyone?

People love karaoke because it releases spontaneity and joy. The open mic frees people from being passive spectators and lets them be active, enthusiastic participants.

Karaoke is really an act of faith. People set aside their fears, their concerns about how well they are going to perform and how people are going to perceive them. Then they step up to an open mic and express what they are feeling inside. Rob Sheffield puts it this way: “To enter into that karaoke mindset, you have to leave behind all your notions of . . . in tune or out of tune. The kara in the word karaoke is the same as the one in karate, which means ’empty hand.'”

Let’s open up church meetings like karaoke on Sunday mornings and let people go to the mic and share what God puts on their heart. When people in a church meeting step up to the open mic with ’empty hands’ (no agenda and no desire to control the meeting), God does amazing things.

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
