See you after Easter!

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:

No Twitter.

No Facebook.

No blogging.

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!

  1. I wish you the best of luck. I have been toying with that same thought…I wanted to do all internet related things, but with my job I have to have access to my email…but I am still thinking I might stop with facebook, myspace, yahoo, amazon, etc. I have to have my work email because I get work related stuff but all that other I spend a great deal on….it’s between that and soft drinks (thinking it might be better to give up all the other, soft drinks would be too easy).
