lets us go “Behind the Curtain”

August 13, 2009 — Leave a comment

Starting this last weekend, launched a series entitled “Behind the Curtain”. This series is going to give an “inside look” at Lifechurch to show us what they are doing and how they are making a difference. From their blog:

This weekend we launched Behind the Curtain, a new series where we’re looking beyond the weekend experience to see how the Church is making a difference around the world. We felt so passionate about sharing where God has been leading us during this season that we pressed the pause button on the series we had planned to do next, Five Easy Steps to Wreck Your Life. . . These are some of the ways that is changing our methods, but not our message, to reach our culture.

behindthecurtainAs you may know, I am a big fan of Lifechurch, but also a critic. You can find my opinions about online church and in general throughout this blog, but a good summary of my basic arguments is in this post.

The timing of this new series is interesting…with the Christian Web Conference coming up in a month and with its highlight being a debate on the use of the Internet to provide full church services – I wonder if Lifechurch is putting its arguments out there right now? It may just be coincidence, but it provides a great way to prepare for the conference!

What do you think? Can church be done in full online? Read the Lifechurch blog, read my posts, and then come to the Christian Web Conference to talk about it! Hope to see you there…
