Emmanuel’s Ekklesia (ἐκκλησία) Experience

Here’s a short poem about how to experience ancient Greek ἐκκλησία in the 21st Century:
–Emmanuel’s Ekklesia Experience–
Come together.
Listen to the Spirit,
God with us,
Speak in your heart.
Let those who hear
Share what they heard.
Behold the Lamb of God,
The living Jesus,
Moving among you
Working in and through
Ordinary people
As they show and tell
What God has done.
Whoever has ears to hear,
Let them hear
What the Spirit says
To the ekklesias.
Ekklesia (ἐκκλησία) is the Greek word used in the New Testament that is usually replaced in English language Bibles with the word church. Jesus (Emmanuel) said: “I will build my ἐκκλησία.” Read more about Emmanuel’s (ἐκκλησία) ekklesia experience here).

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. 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 lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
