This past weekend, I had the joy of attending Turning Point in Omaha. Turning Point is an event for high school students that takes place every November. The theme for this years was “Pause”; we discussed the lost art of the Sabbath. Our students had the opportunity to practice one of three spiritual disciplines: “Solitude”, “Meditation” and “Journaling”. We’ll be re-visiting each of these in an extended format in January.
Friday night’s session was a interview format with three students and a leader from NCC. When they were initially talking about Sabbath, one of them made this amazing statement:
“We don’t know how to connect with something, because we are so connected with everything else.”
Over the weekend, I saw this commercial a few times, it effectively communicates what he meant.
And what is presented as the solution to our inability to connect? Yet another device. Brilliant.
I’m not done with this video.
