This week we’re going to be talking about the Swedish concept of “lagom.” A word without a simple translation, but an idea that means finding the balance between not too much and not too little. In a culture that seems prone to extremes, and a season that can seem overwhelming, how can we find moments of lagom? How can this counter-cultural concept become something of a lived value of ours? What is there to learn from lagom?
