You know it's the 21st Century when...

...bishops encourage people to abstain from text messaging during Lent.


As weird as it sounds, though, the thought behind it does make sense. If people give up Facebook for Lent, why not texting? It encourages more actual conversations -- gasp...even, perhaps, face-to-face! -- instead of short blurbs back and forth.

Rock on.

I would be happy if people put their cell phones on silent during church, but if not that, at least not answer the phone and begin to have during the middle of the service which actually happened Sunday at my church!
