Welcome back.  It's been a week since I was here because our church was on a social media and entertainment media fast for the past week.

I heard from literally dozens of folks -- via email, text, in person -- about the effects of the media fast on their lives.

Less arguing at home
More 'noise' around the house, because everybody's talking instead of staring at a TV
Playing board games with the fam
Reading a whole book in a day
Not having to charge their phone for three days because they weren't using it for social media
Deleting of the social media apps so they wouldn't be tempted - and to stop notifications
Being more in tune with God
Improvement of personal attitudes
More worship music playing
Time spent journaling

So good, friends.

Maybe it's time for a new normal.

'Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.'  (Colossians 3:2)

And be blessed.
