In a week when more “Buzz” was added to our lives, I was relieved to read Seven Simple Ways to Disconnect. In summary:

1. Take a social network hiatus.


2. Ignore all calls.


3. Don’t check your email.


4. Spend a day in silence.


5. Refuse to buy anything.


6. Don’t use any electricity.


7. Don’t use transportation.

And, having disconnected, how about reconnecting…with the great Connector of the disconnected. “For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not” (Isa. 30:15).

So why am I writing this? And why are you reading this?
