As I understand it, Lent, the period between Ash Wednesday and Holy Saturday, is a time of spiritual renewal. This renewal is traditionally practiced by making a new commitment in the areas of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving.
I've decided that this year, my fasting will be in the area of internet use. I don't mean email and computer writing work, I mean reading click bait "articles" with titles like, "Which Celebrities Have a Twin?" and "Iggy Azalea's Favorite Sandwich Recipe." I have a trunk-load of books waiting to be read, and a sink full of breakfast dishes waiting for me to wash and I am reading "14 Things You Didn't Know About Selena Gomez." I am guilty of wasting chunks of my life.
I like social media. I get my news from the internet. I'm not cutting it out, but rather carefully curating my hours. I'm fasting from the internet junk food. I trust you guys will tell me if I'm missing out on something important, like if Bono breaks his other arm or something.
