The Importance of Loafing
Celebrant: Lyra Halsten
“Loafing” is the word offered up by the Chinese inventor and author Dr. Lin Yutang in his book The Importance of Living (1937). Dr. Lin, born in China in 1895, studied at Harvard University and spent many years in New York City. His observations on American and Chinese culture, written more than 80 years ago, resonate strongly with our lives today despite changes in both societies. Relax with Rev. Jennifer Brooks as she offers languid encouragement to appreciate one of summer’s greatest pleasures: loafing.
