Unplugging and Plugging In

The average Facebook user logs on for about half an hour a day.

Youtube? The average visitor watches 15-25 minutes daily.

Netflix subscribers plug in for 87 minutes a day.

Here’s the whopper though. The latest American Nelson statistics (2013) indicate that Americans (and I have no reason to believe us Canadians are much different) watch a whopping 5 hours and 11 minutes EVERY DAY.

So much noise. So much visual and audial stimulation.

We have lost the art of being silent. Of being still.

And knowing He is God.

Today I’m preaching at Eucharist Church on “Attunement and the Ancient Art of Breathing.”
