Strong at the Broken Places: The Art of Mending

As humans, the struggles in our lives can leave physical, emotional or spiritual wounds that need mending. Our resilience can be enhanced when we accept that all of us have been broken in some ways, and that the history of our healing adds to our uniqueness. In this service, we will explore artistic styles throughout the world, such as kintsugi, sachiko, re-knitting and visible mending, which not only embrace the broken and mended, but through their craftsmanship and associated philosophies elevate, celebrate and illuminate the beauty and strength of the restored.
