Living Life Backward

How does one actually live life backward? The idea is that you take the one thing in your future that is certain – death – and you let that reality inform everything about your life now.

Unfortunately, this unpleasant division can tend to filter into the believer’s life and seriously impact the love and unity within a local church. So, what happens if you disagree with another…

What If I Don’t Feel Like Going to Church?

For 10 weeks, Lebanon Baptist Church did not meet together. Sure we sang some songs and we listened to sermons as we tuned into the Sunday Broadcasts from our living rooms.
