Beginning TONIGHT night, our family is joining a local youth group in a "technology fast." Basically, we're choosing to abstain from electronic entertainment for one week.
- No Facebook (ouch!)
- No computer games
- No television
- No radio
- No iPods
- No texting (unless it's an emergency)
Why are we doing this? In an age of technology, it's frequently hard to slow our minds down long enough to engage in developing them for the glory of God. I also think technology causes us to forget in some ways what it means to be human.
So, I'd like to invite you to join our family in a technology fast. I have posted some ideas for books to read on my "Theology Mom" Facebook Fan page (see right). The first couple days will be the hardest. But report back on what you've experienced and learned. It might just change your life.
