Well this fast has started out pretty darn slow for me. The hardest thing so far has been avoiding myspace. I've found myself reading in my free time, and I never can stick to one book at a time. One really good book that I've been re-reading is Blue Like Jazz, I highly recommend it. And I've been getting into the Bible and praying some more. I also recommend that, its very relaxing and peaceful.
I hope everyone else is doing well! Try not to forget the purpose of all of this. Its not as much to avoid media as it is to refocus our lives on God. Wow that sounded really cliche. But seriously. Good luck guys!
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.
