So, we've been thinking about Lazarus, and his post-dead reactions. I've had some very interesting discussions. I've heard some great things going on with The Lazarus Experiment, a forty-day adventure living out what we think befits someone who's come back from the dead. We've asked the question: If Lazarus had an after-resurrection bucket list (things to get done before he kicked the bucket--again), what would be on his list?

Here's another question--from the opposite direction: When Lazarus went to bed that night, before he closed his eyes, if he thought about the rest of his second life, what would he decide NOT TO DO?

Put yourself in Lazzy's shoes. Based on your through-death experience, and in light of the breath you are now taking, what would you resolve to NEVER, EVER DO AGAIN AS LONG AS YOU LIVE?

Come Awake! The Lazarus Experiment.

When Lazarus came out of the cave after being dead four days, how did his life change? Use your imagination. WWLD?

From Easter to Ascension Day (May 13), I will be doing something every day that celebrates new life in Christ. It will be something I don't normally do, or it may be doing something I do all the time but in a new way. But every day for the next forty days, I will bring something into my life that affirms and accentuates living in grace, freedom, and joy. I'm not going to give anything up, but adding something in. Call it "anti-Lent."

Join me!
