Beauty, Silence, and Culture Care: An Interview with Makoto Fujimura

Theologian Neal Plantinga engages with artist and author Mako Fujimura on his vision for complementing recent work on creation care with what he has termed “culture care”—a redemptive approach to artistry and other forms of cultural engagement which seeks to contribute to “the healing of the nations.”

What is it like for a novelist, filmmaker, and painter to embody this culture care approach? And what might this teach those who lead worship or congregational life? The interview includes a discussion of Martin Scorcese’s latest film, Mako’s own painting, and some resourceful examples emerging from next-generation leaders around the world.
