Dietrich Bonhoeffer

German theologian
The fact that we do not speak it but sing it only expresses the fact that our spoken words are inadequate to express what we want to say, that the burden of our song goes far beyond all human words.More Dietrich Bonhoeffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Feast of Paulinus, Bishop of York, Missionary, 644 The first service one owes to others in the fellowship consists in listening to them. Just as love of God begins in listening to His Word, so the beginning of love for the brethren is learning to listen to them. It is God's love for us that He not only gives us His Word but lends us His ear. So it is His work that we do for our brother when we learn to listen to him.More Dietrich Bonhoeffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Anything I cannot thank God for for the sake of Christ, I may not thank God for at all; to do so would be sin. ... We cannot rightly acknowledge the gifts of God unless we acknowledge the Mediator for whose sake alone they are given to us.More Dietrich Bonhoeffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The restoration of the church must surely depend on a new kind of monasticism, which has nothing in common with the old but a life of uncompromising discipleship, following Christ according to the sermon on the mount. I believe the time has come to gather people together to do this.More Dietrich Bonhoeffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Whenever Christ calls us, His call leads us to death.More Dietrich Bonhoeffer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
