Could You Fast from the Internet One Day This Weekend?

Do you ever take a day off from the Internet? Vern Sanders posted that he’s fasting from posting today. And Carrie Sturrock, writing in The Oregonian today under the title “Take a day to slow down, relax and log off,” tells about a project called Sabbath Manifesto. It comes from ReBoot, a Jewish nonprofit, and one of the suggestions is to avoid technology for a day.

I try not to access e-mail on Sundays, but I do usually get online sometimes during the day. It’s complicated for clergy serving churches when you’re working Sundays, and e-mail/Internet use may be part of that.

Could you fast, the rest of today, tomorrow, or Easter Sunday?
