Member Care--Rest and Leisure

During August we want to have a look at the role of rest and relaxation for mission/aid workers.

Nothing too in-depth, just a few quotes to ponder.

We remember hearing a travel medicine physician/consultant say this about "leisure"during one of his workshops:

Why is leisure good?
Leisure is good not because it helps us to do our work better.
Rather, leisure is good....because leisure is good.

Next entry we go to the Book of Sirach, circa 190 BC, for classic Jewish wisdom on the role of leisure in life and learning.
