Episode 26: Haejin Shim FujimuraJuly 12, 2022
Jedd sits down with Haejin Shim Fujimura – lawyer, human trafficking advocate, and entrepreneur – and explores how the ideas and practices we talk about in each episode of Justice + the Inner Life apply in every sector – including business, medicine, homelife…and even a New York City law firm.
In this episode, you'll explore:
What it means to “seek the Kingdom of God” in our ordinary places and daily lives.
Practical ways to care for staff and colleagues in any work setting.
How the ancient Japanese art of kintsugi reflects the restorative work God desires to do both in and through His people every day.
To hear more from Haejin, join us at the CAFO2022 Summit in Atlanta on September 28-30.

"The necessity of thoughtful, intentional care for human souls...applies everywhere, in every field, every part of life." - Jedd Medefind
"Whatever your work, and wherever you are, God wants it to be a place where His grace and healing and new life are growing. That’s the Kingdom of God breaking forth." - Jedd Medefind
