Discardia

posted by Jason Boyett

You probably don’t know it, but today is the first day of Discardia, a totally made-up holiday season that falls between the solstices and equinoxes and their following new moons. (For you non-meteorologists, that’s March 19 to April 5.) The purpose of Discardia, which was created by blogger Dinah Sanders of Metagrrrl, is to “get rid of stuff and habits you no longer need.” I’ve got a few of those unnecessary habits and things, which tend to become clear to me during the season of Lent. Furthermore, on the Discardian New Moon (April 6), “you don’t buy anything or bring anything into your home and enjoy the fact that you have enough.” Great idea.

Why not celebrate Discardia by cleaning out or decluttering some aspect of your life — your closet, your car, your garage — by recycling stuff, tossing stuff, or simply giving stuff away? Start with whatever you have too many of. Books? DVDs? Shoes?

Fight materialism. Welcome to the season of Discardia. Read more about it here.

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

The Phases of Writing (Adam McHugh)
If you've ever felt out of place among all the exciting, expressive, emotional enthusiasm of a contemporary church service...or an evangelist's demands that you need to constantly be sharing your faith boldly to strangers...if it simply wipes you out to be surrounded by people all the time,  then y
