More Reflections on Bonhoeffer

  • The Pain:
To be working against your own country that is as deeply rooted in you as anything.

  • The Confusion:
Wishing for the defeat of your country in war in order to save it from destruction.

  • The Loneliness:
Unable to talk to many people about what you are doing and thinking out of concern for them.

  • The Grief:
That the faith you so strongly believe in has been co-opted or worse, become meaningless in the fight.

  • The Hope:
That what you are doing may bring about a resolution to the problems you are working against.

  • The Peace:
That you are doing what you understand to be the will and calling of God in your life- even if no one else sees it.
