Jesus spent time apart. (Just check the gospels. I’ll wait.) Spending time “unplugged,” quiet, and “set apart” from the things that occupy and distract us is good for us too. That kind of time sets us free to understand what we really think and feel and to listen to God. It means time without iPods, radios, books, music, phones, Facebook, newspapers, Netflix, magazines, talking, television, video games, iPads, snacks, text messages, Google, or whatever your favorite distraction is. Can we do it? It took Steve a bout with the stomach flu to even realize he needed it! But you don’t need to get sick. You can just watch the video.
