Who are the best ministers?

ARE ORDINARY PEOPLE THE BEST MINISTERS?
I turned on the TV today and there was Johnny Cash
Staring in an old episode of “Little House on the Prairie,”
Playing an ordinary man pretending to be a preacher.
His down to earth and unconventional style
Got a depressed & dying woman to joyously sing with him;
Cheered up a little girl crying over her dead puppy;
Inspired people to generously help one another;
And spread compassion and love everywhere he went.
Perhaps everyday people are better at genuine heart-felt “ministry”
Than professionals are and that’s a good reason to go
“Beyond Church” as usual! http://amzn.to/2hazP9U.

See ordinary people minister to one another every Sunday morning at 10:45 at The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry St., Nashville, TN 37207.

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
