‘Kinstugi’ is the Japanese word that describes the art of repairing broken ceramics with gold.
This art form is wonderful in the way it takes something that is broken, destined to be rubbish.
And restores it.
With gold !
Once repaired, it is considered more beautiful for having been broken.
Often brokenness from our past are considered ugly scars, that we need to hide, and never speak of again.
Wouldn’t it be cool if we took the art of Kinstugi and applied the thinking to our lives.
What if we understood that the times we feel smashed and broken are gold in the making?
What if our past brokenness was seen as gold lines that speak boldly of our journey and healing?
What if that was Jesus intention, to take our brokenness and use it to make us more beautiful?
