No Cell Phone
When I dropped the FedEx box in the mail box yesterday, sending my iPhone off to get repaired, I did not realize what that would do. No cell phone is connected to me right now. That is new. I have had a cell phone close to me since 1992, sixteen years. Oh, I've traveled to other countries for times without a cell phone, but never while working. I've always been reach-able and always able to reach out, until now.
You notice addictions when you take them away. This is strange space to not have a cell phone going. It's almost like a fast. What would happen if church leaders gave up cell phone use for Lent? Could you go 40 days without using a cell phone? It's a lot quieter in my office today.
