Recently, I had the opportunity to hear Makoto and Haejin Fujimura speak. I was excited – though I did not have much personal experience with Makoto’s work, my artistic friends and co-workers spoke highly of his writing (Culture Care and Art and Faith, among others). The topic they had chosen to present on was kintsugi, the ancient Japanese practice of mending cracked or broken pottery with gold. I knew a little bit about kintsugi and was intrigued. I was unprepared, however, for the intricate theological correlations Makoto and Haejin would make, leading to my own continued musings.
In our previous article introducing the Advent season, we encouraged you to engage with good art this season. We wanted to provide a practical way for you to do that!
Hard as it is to believe, the Advent season is upon us. Over the next several weeks, we have the opportunity to take time to prepare our hearts to celebrate Christmas. Advent is meant to slow us down, to cause our hearts to focus on the attributes of God that find their fulfillment in Jesus Christ.
