Happy Halfway! Well, this week was a little bit crazy. My class is planning an event for the juniors and seniors, and that has been hectic with making posters, advertisements, financial aid announcements, and begin to sell tickets. In the back of my head this whole week is Christ saying, Be Still. I find that I often tell myself, "I'm too busy to be still right now, I will be still later" quite ironically in the very sense of the word. The only stillness I get is at lunch, because my friends are mostly on their phones. Wow, what a world this has become. My friends Sam and David were literally sitting across the table from each other, but they had to be DM'ing each other instagram rather than talking. This just shows how much our generation really does need the media fast. It gives us a taste of old-school traditional reality, and frankly, it's kind of nice. I'm excited for the next two weeks of fasting, and maybe I can even get my friends to talk to each other out loud.
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.
