I had a super cool experience today. I was driving my friend home (because I'm 18 and that legal now, whoo), and she turned on the radio to secular music. Naturally, I had to explain to her that I couldn't listen to that music because of the media fast. Unlike the many negative responses that I have received to it this year, she was totally cool with it. It actually spawned a conversation about church and God. I told her all about Hume SD, and now she is thinking about going with our youth group. I was super surprised and excited to see her take interest in something like that. I love to see the God's work in my life and others. Happy media fasting.
What is a 30-Day Secular Media Fast?
What if the noise of godless media is drowning out the voice of God? Not all media is bad... but maybe the distraction away from God is making harder to hear and see God at work.
This is a journey of a group of high school students who have committed to take 30 days to focus on God through God-centered media. This includes TV, movies, books, magazines, smart phone apps, and many social media outlets.
