I will be gone for a week

I have decided to fast from the internet for a week. And from tv.

I have the feeling I need to prioritze prayer and the scriptures for a while so this is my attempt. I would encourage you, whether you are a person of faith or not, to consider fasting with me. Give up something that takes a considerable amount of time, and focus on something worthy of more careful consideration.

I will be writing though so hopefully I'll have something worth sharing when I return. If I am not forgotten by then :)

Thanks for the encouragement to listen to the invitation that was already inside myself! I'm going to fast from looking at any other blogs for week (I'm still going to write my own) and only going to use the net as I need to for work.

Sounds good. Unfortunately I cannot fast from my children for a week :)

My media time is so small anyway so it is not an issue for me. It used to be though, and whenever I left it I always felt better and realised some things about myself.

You're a brave man my brother. I can't imagine unplugging for a whole week!!! The horror! You've made my halloween!

I have fasted from talking for a day before, quite a feat for a Jensen.

See you in a week, virtually at least.

fasting the internet and tv might be harder than fasting food for me! looking forward to your insights in a week.
