Are sermons working or just keeping up appearances? Will a talk about religion give you the personal power to walk out your faith in daily life?
* When church people recommend sleazy entertainment on social media; sermons aren’t working;
* When Christians run people down, sermons are not working;
* When ministers steal, sermons aren’t working;
* When church attenders lie, sermons aren’t working;
* When millions of people are becoming “Dones” or “Nones”, sermons are not working.

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.
