After 38 hours with no sleep... some things just don't work right. Like your brain. So last night, after youth group. I got home. No one was there. I was exhausted. I couldn't focus on anything. So I got shorts on and laid down on the couch. And without thinking, I turned on the TV to Sports Center... now I want to be clear, my brain wasn't working. The last thing I remember is turning it on and laying my head down. I woke up around 1:30, turned it off... and went to bed. Then I woke up around 11 am!
Here's what I realized... I have some habits, that when I'm most vulnerable (tired, exhausted, numb), I turn to. I better do some serious reflection and self-evaluation: What things am I turning to in order to "wind-down" and is it really benefiting my walk with God?
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.
