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.

Here, you can follow their stories, their lives, and their challenges. Feel free to leave comments and encouragement.

First day off

I went the whole month listening to christian music and listening to christian radio but now the media fast is over. After softball practice I was sitting in the car and I turned on the radio, I was flipping through the station I would normally listen to. I never really notice how meaningless and dumb normal teenage music is. After I told my dad this he pointed out how over time we become desensitized to it and how we don't even realize that they aren't even saying anything important.

  1. Great insight from your dad and it's wonderful that you noticed the difference. I would encourage all of those that participated in the Media Fast, not to just go "back to things as usual" but to consider spending less time with all the meaningless media we are bombarded with and more time interacting with God and with our family & friends, face-to-face rather than through texting or Facebook type posts. Real relationships aren't built through using technology, although it has it's place in our society today.
