No More Facebook for Lent
The Pioneer Press reported Sunday on a woman who will have a hard 40 days, she gave up Facebook for Lent.
Lent, the Christian season that goes from Ash Wednesday until Easter, started last week and the woman told the Pioneer Press she has been having a hard time so far.
The article mentions many people are using Lent this year to disconnect from social networking. One college student told the Press she thought it would be interesting to step away from the site for a period of time.
People interviewed said that not only do they hope to connect with God more through their sacrifice, but also with other people...face to face again.
