Church is Like Breathing (& Other Free Flowing Ideas)

A church meeting is like breathing:
1) Someone can program and control it; or
2) People can let go and let it flow.

What would happen if a group of believers would begin to gather, not merely to sing and hear a presentation about Christ, but to surrender to and obey Christ’s actual presence among them?

God’s not dead. Be God-led!

American money says:  “In God we trust.”  However, our culture tends to illustrate:  Without God we rust.

Many people want to be PC.  However, life flows more harmoniously when we’re GC — God correct!

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 @
