From Michael Frosts facebook page:
In a world where activities like shopping, watching television and attending to social media have become deeply ingrained habits that shape our consciousness, what alternative habits can we embrace that countermand them, to remind ourselves that life does not consist of consumption, entertainment and idle chit-chat alone? I’m giving up social media for Lent, not because there’s anything wrong with Facebook or Twitter, but because I need to embrace an alternative habit for a while, praying instead of tweeting, communing with God instead of status updating.
I have decided to follow the Pope and Michael; I will not be posting or commenting (nor moderating nor visiting) on this site for the period of Lent. I have been talking about a book for some time and have an outline and first chapter completed, so I think I’ll be focusing on that for a little while. I too need to focus my attention and inner life and Lent is a great period to be doing that.
See you all after Easter!
