Peter Christ - October 29, 2023

Faithful and Faith-filled

Today we celebrate the truth of God’s love and faithfulness making the broken, beautiful once more.

Scripture References: 1 Kings 12:1-17, Romans 3:19-28

From Series: "Broken & Beautiful"

Ever since humans were sent away from the garden, we’ve had to come to terms with our deeply enduring flaws. As the story of creation continues and as much as God might have hoped otherwise, God has chosen us, even with all these imperfections. The stories of God’s people over time continue to reveal God’s unstoppable commitment to us. So how do we, the imperfect, make sense of this? The Japanese practice of kintsugi is a wonderful metaphor for people of faith seeking to understand the tension of being both broken and beautiful. Kintsugi is a philosophy that values the eventual wear and imperfections of pottery and porcelain by employing mending techniques that celebrate an object’s history. Filling cracks and restoring function, the imperfect become treasured even more, just as God has promised.
