Makoto Fujimura on a Theology of Making

Publisher: Fuller Studio

Makoto Fujimura, director of Fuller’s Culture Care Initiative, reflects on how the arts and imagination play an integral part in the Christian life, and how they speak of moving through brokenness as a necessary step in the journey toward hope and renewal.

Four videos in which Makoto Fujimura uses the example of Japanese kintsugi pottery to reflect on brokenness and renewal:

  • Meditating on the psalms and the sacredness of materiality.
  • The Japanese art of kintsugi and the value that arises in being mended and renewed.
  • Reflecting on the weight of trauma and the necessity of accepting our brokenness in the movement towards hope and joy.
  • Speakpng on human imagination and God’s invitation to participate in new creation.
