“Jesus Christ Superstar Revival” pic shows powerful vision for church

This picture from the Broadway revival of Jesus Christ Superstar by Tony-winning director Des McAnuff (which opened at the Neil Simon Theatre 0n March 22, 2012 and ran for 116 performances) vividly portrays the vision I have for church.

  1.  Jesus is literally with us when we gather in His name, even if we don’t see Him with our physical eyes.
  2. Everybody’s attention is focused on the living, resurrected Jesus in our midst, rather than on a person in a pulpit on a platform in the front of the room.
  3. Everyday people are free to listen to the living Jesus and then to say or do in the meeting,  whatever Jesus tells them to.
  4. Jesus, Himself, directly choreographs the meeting without a human choreographer.

Can the One who choreographs the Universe,
The stars in space,
The electrons in an atom,
The cells in a human body,
Choreograph the members of the body of Christ
When we gather in His name,
Without a human master of ceremonies?

The answer is yes! The real question is “Will we let Him?”

If we let Jesus be our Choreographer, He will take us beyond church as usual. Check out Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible–Ekklesia.”

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
