To play is to “engage in activity for enjoyment and recreation rather than a serious or practical purpose.” Most of us have amazing memories of wild, imaginative, creative play as kids. However, as we age into adulthood, something seems to shift. We begin to reserve our energy for things that feel productive or practical. We get too busy to play - because it feels pointless and even like a poor use of time. What is the truth of the matter? If play is so important for children, maybe it is for grownups too! This issue celebrates the value of play and invites us to intentionally make time to delight in God’s good gifts.
