“Screen-Free Sabbath” is part of the student life division’s Sustain YOU! initiative, which focuses on care of self and prioritizing and balancing life. This student-produced video on the topic debuted in an early February university chapel. At the core of this adventure is the principle of Sabbath, a period of rest and renewal.
We invite students, faculty and staff to participate as individuals or groups and free yourself from screens… items that can block you from Sabbath, yourself, your relationships and your spirituality. Join in our “electronic fasting” and share your reflections here. Look for our celebration event later in the spring 2012 semester, when all screen-free adventurers will come together and reflect on their experience.
