Reinventing the Sabbath - A Day of Quiet

Next Friday - Reinvent the Sabbath by unplugging yourself.

Reboot, the nonprofit sponsoring the event, includes “Ten Principles” to guide participation (which they encourage you to edit!):

1) Avoid technology;
2) Connect with loved ones;
3) Nurture your health;
4) Get outside;
5) Avoid commerce;
6) Light candles;
7) Drink wine; (or beer (that's my addition))
8) Eat bread;
9) Find silence;
10) Give back.

You can learn more here.

An article on this can be found here: Turn Off, Slow Down, Drop In: The Digital Generation Reinvents the Sabbath | Culture | Religion Dispatches

I think this is a great idea and will try to do it myself!
