In an ancient Japanese art form called Kintsugi, broken pieces of porcelain are remade into pots using gold resin. It is believed that a vessel fixed this way is more beautiful – more precious – than before it was broken.
In a way, Kintsugi is like a visual reminder of God’s grace. We’ve all experienced brokenness … regrets of things we’ve done or left undone … words we wish we had never spoken. But God’s ultimate promise is that brokenness is never the end of our story. And that’s what the journey of Lent is about: moving from death to new life. From pain to healing. From empty to filled. From human brokenness to God’s wholeness.
This year our Lenten theme is “Make Us Holy, Make Us Whole,” and each week we’ll explore different ways that God takes the broken pieces of our lives and puts them together to make something more beautiful than we could have ever imagined.
Joanne, Becky, and I have designed what we hope will be a very deep and meaningful journey this Lent through scripture, image, prayer, and song. I promise, this is a series you won’t want to miss!
From Broken to Whole
