Life Together, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Adult Education Topical Book Study: Sundays, beginning October 28, at 9:45 a.m.
From October 28 through November 25, you are invited to join the Adult Christian Education Team’s topical study, which is reading Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Christian Community, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906–1945) was a renowned and beloved Christian minister, seminary professor, and theologian who was imprisoned and later executed by the Nazis for his resistance to Hitler. After his martyrdom at the hands of the Gestapo in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer continued his witness in the hearts of Christians around the world. His Letters and Papers from Prison became a prized testimony to Christian faith and courage, read by thousands. In Life Together, we have Pastor Bonhoeffer’s experience of Christian community. This story of a unique fellowship in an underground seminary during the Nazi years reads like one of Paul’s letters. It gives practical advice on how life together in Christ can be sustained in families and groups. The role of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service is treated in simple, almost biblical, words. Life Together is bread for all who are hungry for the real life of Christian fellowship.
On Sundays, after a time of fellowship and light refreshments in the Sharp Atrium at 9:30 a.m., please join our discussion leaders, Linda G. Leach and Dr. Peter J. Freymark, in the Craig Room at 9:45 a.m.
