TV free....

A question came up on James 1:27 about keeping oneself polluted from the world and some ways of doing that. How about not watching tv? We went tv free for 6 months and it was really great. It was also mentioned what we would do if we didn't watch tv in the evenings. Reading, playing board games, studying the Word together, doing projects around the house, talking, just spending time together that isn't diluted with the tv, etc are some ideas. Our small group all decided to go tv free on Saturday. We wouldn't watch tv the whole day and then talk about what we did instead, was it productive, was it worth it, etc. Should be interesting. I am all for not having tv, always have been. But, the captain enjoys History channel, Discovery, etc. But, in the evenings that is what takes his time. He is tired from work and flops down on the couch and watches tv. I would love to be tv free again. If you are tv free, what are some things you do to occupy yourself in the evenings with your family? How do you relax if that is what you need to do without the tv? I'd like your opinions. :)

Silence, as someone has said, is the mother of prayer and the nurse of holy thoughts. Silence cuts down on our sins, doesn't it? We can't be sinning in so many different ways if we are being quiet before God. Silence nourishes patience, charity, discretion. ~Elisabeth Elliot
