Tftd: Lord Sacks 4/11/2016

last friday morning (4th november), 7.48-7.51am, on bbc radio 4
thought for the day: screen sabbath, by former chief rabbi lord sacks

Well done Moses, I thought. Three thousand years ago you gave us the Sabbath to free us from slavery to pharaoh, and now we’ve rediscovered it to give us freedom from smartphones.
Yet maybe the principle’s the same. Whether it’s building pyramids or digital devices, we sometimes forget that technology is made to serve us. We were not made to serve technology.
So whether it’s an hour a day or a day a week, let’s switch off our screens, enjoy one another face to face, and rediscover the magic of dreaming, not streaming.”
