Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Had a chance to visit the Bonhoeffer house in Berlin. Still so moved by the impact of his relatively short life. And how those who were imprisoned with him said that he possessed an unrelenting joy, even in the midst of abject horror. We don’t have to walk around as if the world is falling apart at the seams–even when it is–because we belong to a different world, a higher and better kingdom that is characterized by unspeakable joy.

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
