Dietrich Bonhoeffer on Hope

“Good Friday and Easter free us to think about the things far beyond our personal fate;  about the ultimate meaning of life, suffering and events;  and we lay hold of a great hope.”

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

A Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer


Dietrich Bonhoeffer on the Community of Saints

“The community of the saints is not an ‘ideal’ community consisting of perfect and sinless men and women, where there is no need of further repentance. No, it is a community which proves that it is worthy of the gospel of forgiveness by constantly and sincerely proclaiming God’s forgiveness”

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together

If you have never read Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, I highly recommend it as a realistic look at living in the Christian communion of saints.
