“Nathaniel Van Denend is fasting from Facebook. See you when the Son comes up.”
I wrote that on Ash Wednesday, shortly after deciding to give up Facebook, the social networking site, for Lent. But then I thought to myself, “Facebook, well I only check that maybe 10 times or so a day—it won’t be much of a sacrifice.” So I decided to give up all news-related media for Lent.
