Guest Speakers Makoto and Haejin Shim Fujimura

This past Sunday, David Stroud interviewed leading abstract artist and popular speaker Makoto Fujimura and his wife Haejin Shim. Makoto is also a well-known expert in Kintsugi, the Japanese art of restoring broken pottery in such a way that the repaired piece is more beautiful and more valuable than the original. He also shares a real passion for Christian involvement in cultural renewal, as we do as a church, and he has written a number of great books on the subject.

David spoke to Makoto and Haejin about “what to do when things break?”, and they talked about Kintsugi in relation to their own experiences at 9/11, during Covid, in their own spiritual lives and in their marriage.
