This Week’s SOUL TRAINING: “Media Fast”
“In a world where people use the Internet an average of 30 hours a week and keep the TV or radio on 7.9 hours a day, we need to get unplugged from virtual reality and address our addiction to technology and the toxins it brings into our lives. Unplug, and look into the eyes of another human face – see the beauty of God’s Creation!” – Adele Calhoun
We live in a sexually saturated culture. The challenge to address lust this week is to do a 48 hour media fast. This includes:
…Newspapers and magazines
…iPods, mp3 players and stereos
What will you do with your time? How will you entertain yourself? Some suggestions:
…Play a board game
…Read a book
…Go for a walk
…Connect with a friend
It may feel difficult. Remember though, if you are able to fulfill this challenge, it can give you hope that you can also learn to say no to lust.
WHAT IS “SOUL TRAINING”?
Each week throughout the “Good and Beautiful Life” message series, we will be inviting you to engage in a different spiritual practice with God. These practices are intended to help you reflect on and to apply the truth from Sunday’s message (i.e. “Soul Training”). To help you remember these practices and to encourage you to be intentional to engage, each week we will post more information about that week’s practice here (in addition to a weekly email reminder). Our hope and prayer is that many in our church family will meet with Jesus in new and profound ways as we engage in these transformative soul training exercises together!
