Leisure is Good

“Leisure is the condition of considering things in a celebrating spirit… Leisure lives on affirmation. It is not the same as the absence of activity… It is rather like the stillness in the conversation of lovers, which is fed by their oneness… And as it is written in the Scriptures, God saw, when ‘he rested from all the works that He had made’ that everything was good, very good (Gen. 1:31), just so the leisure of man includes within itself a celebratory, approving, lingering gaze of the inner eye on the reality of creation.” -Francis Pieper
