"You see where this is going. Rather than relieving stress, the push to perform more and more tasks for Jesus in order to make him happy with us can lead us right into the stress we're trying to avoid."
The eighth year of The Lazarus Experiment starts on April 16, Easter Sunday. The Experiment asks what it means to have new life because of Jesus. It's a group of people who will spend forty days doing intentional, willful things that spring from the truth that, through Jesus, "all things have become new!"
