Let's see if this thingy works........
So, I'll be honest, I really didn't think that this fast would be that challenging. Silly, silly me. ;) It about killed me not to watch Bachelor on the first day (yes, I admit to watching it..........I am sooo lame). I seriously considered starting the fast a day late, but I figured that the challenge of not watching would be good for me. So I sat in my room and wrote a song, but I couldn't help but overhear little tidbits of noise from the TV that was on across the hall. . . . Sadly, it was pretty agonizing not to be able to watch. I've already told this to some people, but I didn't realize what a high priority we place the media in until I couldn't watch/listen to it. It's like all of this stuff is turning our brains into big ole' lumps of tofu. Which doesn't taste too good, in my opinion. :) But, after resisting the everyday-impulse to surf the internet and stuff after school, I was actually able to hang out with my brother for a bit during these past 3 days.
I'm looking forward to these next few weeks. . . . well, sorta. :) I'm ready to really talk to God and hear what He has to say.
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.
