The Holy Work of Repair — To Love What is Broken
A Lenten Reflection Series with Debie Thomas, Pádraig Ó Tuama, Liz Tichenor, Anna Blaedel, and Timothy Shriver“God created in love,” artist and theologian, Makoto Fujimura wrote, “but by that same love, Christ wept.” Sometimes it feels like we’ve made a real mess of God’s creation, and Jesus weeps over what we’ve done to ourselves and to each other. In order to begin the healing of our relationships—as families, neighbors and a nation—we have to start by looking within and mending the broken places. Lent is a time set apart to repent, renounce and restore. We may be broken, but we don’t have to stay that way. “Traumatic destruction can lead to sublime redemption,” Fujimura reminds us. This is our journey, and our work, from Lent to Easter.
