Rev. Dr. Marc Mullinax

The Cracks Where the Light Gets In

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of fixing pottery with gold lacquer; the cracks that remain visible – the breakage and repair – are understood to be a part of the object’s history and therefore beautiful. Our autobiographical “cracks” contribute to an aesthetic wholeness…holiness. Breakage and repair are the graced history of a person. Join us on August 6 as we think together about how our checkered autobiographies are exactly what this world may need at the critical moment. Need light? Just look within where we – at some point – failed and needed (like Humpty-Dumpty) to be put back together again.

A Few of My Favorite Things:

      A Personal Journey with Voluntary Simplicity

Downsizing is often seen as a rite-of-passage as we get older. But what if living with fewer material possessions was a way of life? And as I will suggest in my sermon, material clutter is not the only baggage we might carry with us in life.
