While the Lord has told us not to tell people when we are fasting, I need to let you know because of possible communications issues. As part of our church’s Read. Pray. Fast. 21 Days. , I will not be on Facebook. I will still be on e-mail and still blog during the 21 days, blogging out devotionals for the RPF21, but Facebook will not be on the menu.
For me, Facebook started out as a way to communicate with the numerous college students and younger adults via articles, Scripture, and other helpful ways to have a vital walk with Christ. While I don’t spend a lot of time on Facebook (I don’t think I do, at least), I do share a lot of stuff (and sharing stuff on FB is about a five-second endeavor)—but I need to see if I have allowed Facebook and even Twitter too much of a role in my communication and in my recreation.
So I will deactivate my account. In the meantime, I will be blogging at http://www.grippedbythegospel.com . Feel free to e-mail me if you need to talk. If you send me a message via Facebook, I won’t get it until Monday, January 31st.
