The Leisure Corner
Leisure is not a thing to be done, it is a way to be. It is, for that reason, somewhat difficult to define. Pieper describes it as a “mental and spiritual attitude, a condition of the soul, an inward calm, of silence, of not being ‘busy’ and letting things happen.”
Therefore, the definition of leisure is much richer than merely being on vacation, having fun, entertaining oneself, or doing “leisurely” activities. These things are often done for the sake of the rest needed to return to work. Leisure is not for the sake of work, it’s not for the sake of anything!
We hope that you will find in this corner a way of leisure whether that is on your Sundays, or throughout the week when you need to connect with God.
