Ah, easier said than done. Great story! Our church/church school use to have a media fast during the month of October. It was optional but many families participated. It had a great spiritual impact on our church and church school. Thanks for sharing and bringing back some memories for me.

I really liked this story because I realize how much media takes the place of time we could spend with Him. I'm not very good at it, but thanks for sharing this very interesting pice. I think the ending was especially well-written. :)

I guess the pastor should have known better than to have a TV in his study. A great message that we need to hear.
Where I live we have regular power outages with the cell phone network also up and down. So we get plenty of practice in living without the radio, tv, internet etc. But it IS nice when they come back!

The task was "easier said than done." Great story of "what if..." but you've got me thinking... Thanks!

Great story. What happier people we would be if we turned down the noise and actively listened to God's words.

Wow--that kinda hits right where we live, doesn't it? Well-told, honest presentation of a modern conundrum: we are in the world, but not of the world.

Your opening paragraph is so spot on in its message and the conclusion with all the distractions and excuses could not be more real. Very effective and all so true.

Good food for thought! Resolutions often don't hold up in the real world, even if intentions are good (and it would be VERY hard to give up the computer!). Thanks for this.
