“God talks” or “God talks”? (“Talks” as a noun or as a verb?)

What if Jesus intended church to be a community of loving believers, instead of a series of weekly lectures?  What if instead of listening to a man’s sermonic God talks, church was originally designed by Jesus for you to listen while the living God talks to you personally?

When the word talks is a noun, God talks are sermons.  However,  when the word talks is a verb, God talks means that He is speaking to you.  Are you listening?

When a church service is built around listening to a man talk about God, people learn theological information.  However, when a church meeting is built around listening to God talk, people are supernaturally transformed.  Hearing God’s voice is life changing!

At The Salvation Army Berry Street in Nashville, Tennessee, our goal is to hear God talk to us.  So we have set aside traditional sermons.  Instead of preaching, after praise and worship, we encourage people to listen to God and then to openly share what He tells them.  The results are absolutely incredible.  Come and see for yourself:  Sunday mornings at 10:45, 225 Berry Street, 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 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 in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
