Catching up part 2…

Fujimura Tree Grace
This past Wednesday at Morrow Church’s jazz vespers service, we explored what it means to stand in thin space between last year and the year to come. We let go of the past, lift up our needs, concerns and hopes for the moment and lean in to what God is continuing to do in our lives.  This requires forgiving ourselves, being present and trusting our future to God’s hands.  We are as God’s art in development!

To illustrate this idea, I wanted to share a couple videos of Makoto Fujimura doing performance art in the ancient Japanese Nihonga art tradition, but in a modern art expression.  But, alas, we had technical issues and wasn’t able to share.  So I share these videos here:

Like this work in process, we sit in the midst of being shaped, formed and re-formed. May God grant us brilliant colors, unique textures and streaks that reflect light!
