Last night I was discussing Lent with my wife. I was thinking through what I might choose to fast for the next 40 days [beginning tomorrow]. And, she made a suggestion.
“Why don’t you stop Twittering and Facebook-ing all of the time?”
That may not be a verbatim quote, but it is definitely the big idea of what she said.
Keeping up with blogging, Twitter, and Facebook does take a lot of my time…even when I am at home.
I have decided that part of my fast for Lent will involve the technology that takes up such a huge chunk of my time.
That’s right. As of tomorrow:
Not until after April 12…which is Easter.
I will not post or check any of my social networking accounts until April 12.
I will miss getting to communicate with friends in this way…but I am excited to spend that extra time with God and family and friends.
I am going to work on being fully present with the people in my life.
So, if you are participating in Lent, whatever you choose to fast, I will be praying for you on this journey.
Check back April 13 for a new post here at Intersections!
