Local Ministers Call for Technology Fast During Holy Week

Article Image Alt Text

The La Grange Ministerial Alliance is asking everyone to put down their cell phones for a few hours every day during Holy Week, April 13-20.

Rev. Scott Elliott of the La Grange Church of Christ proposed the “technology fast” and brought the idea to his fellow religious leaders in town. All of the pastors in the Alliance are sponsoring the fast, and each church will provide devotional guides to their congregants for use during Holy Week.

“We’re asking people to fast from technology and social media during the hours of 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. during Holy Week,” Elliott said. “We respect that people have jobs and need to use e-mail and text, but we’re trying to encourage a sense of community.”
