I have been contemplating how attached to my phone I have become. I rebelled and hung on to my dumb flip-phone for many years until I could no long receive texts from people. Those memes and emojis don’t come through on a dumb phone. It finally came to an end when people began sending me videos which, literally, locked up my little phone. I would have to take the battery out just to get it to revive. Once, my wife and I caved in a bought our first smartphones our connections options grew greatly. All of you who have smartphones know that there is a way to plugging to everything at any time. There is an app for everything! Sadly, I believe, our ultra-connected has made us the loneliest people ever. We can reach out and have conversations with ten people at once without ever leaving the bed. Research has proven that human beings are relational people and that the best relationships come from real connection. There has to be touch, and some form of tactile piece of relationships. I found it interesting that there is a website called National Day of Unplugging. There are even events you can host to “unplug” together. I love the idea! I think we all need to unplug much more than one day per year! We need to get outside! Meet people! Actually, have face to face conversations! Want to try it out? Here’s a great experiment! On Sunday morning, when the rest of your family is busy checking in with friends on their phones, quietly sneak out of the house and go to church! Crazy I know, right! The next weekend, get some one to sneak out with you! I guarantee, it will change your life.
