The Kintsugi Life

The art of Kintsugi has been around for centuries. I just found out about it 2 years ago when my son explained it to me. It’s about repairing broken things with gold so they are even more beautiful – and stronger – after being damaged. What an amazing thought! Strength in weakness. Beauty in brokenness. And yet, this is nothing new.

Scripture teaches us that (in Paul’s words), God’s “grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9

We are all broken, in one way or another. Only Jesus can make us whole. And more beautiful. And stronger.

Lion’s Gate Ministries doesn’t gloss over the hurt. We come alongside, knowing what it’s like to struggle. We want to be a place of healing. Healing with gold. More beautiful. Stronger. We’re here to walk alongside you as you enter the process of Kintsugi.
