Our theme for the month is “Solitude.”
January is often a time for resolutions, so here is a tough spiritual exercise!
Spend one day WITHOUT YOUR CELL PHONE.
Don’t look at it. Don’t turn it on. Don’t make a call. Don’t receive a call. Don’t text. Don’t check Facebook. Drive places using a paper map. Disconnect, detach, cut the tether…just for a day.
What happened? What did you notice? Did you find ways to get around the exercise—and why? Did you have any conversations or experiences you might not ordinarily have had? And finally—would you try this again?
