Easter Requiem For Church As Usual

Members of Christ’s body meet,
Gagged and bound (hand and heart),
By tradition, protocol, and hierarchy.
They’re not allowed to be doers,
But are lined up in rows as hearers only,
Gathered to be restrained,
Not permitted to freely speak or act
Or openly obey their Head,
The resurrected Jesus.
Then they’re dismissed to go
And forget the words they heard.

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
