God at the Center of Life: 40-Day Journey with Dietrich Bonhoeffer

God at the Center of Life: 40-Day Journey with Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Every Thursday, from 01/07/2021 to 02/18/2021, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) was a Lutheran pastor, published theologian,
and seminary teacher, but is perhaps best known for his role in the German
Resistance during World War II. He was arrested by the Nazis in 1943 and
spent the last two years of his life in prison until his execution on April 9, 1945.
In this class, we will read 40-Day Journey with Dietrich Bonhoeffer, edited by Ron Klug, which
provides a selection of writings from two of his books: Life Together and The Cost of
Discipleship. Bonhoeffer was passionately dedicated to Christian discipleship and community,
and his writings reflect his belief that God was "at the center of life." As the editor describes
Bonhoeffer's view, "The disciple encounters the reality of God both in the immediacy of
relationship with Jesus Christ and in following Jesus into concrete, responsible, ethical action
on behalf of human need."
Once a week, we will meet to share the experiences and insights of our personal journeys
within Bonhoeffer's framework of Christian discipleship and community. This class, led by Wren
Collé, will begin on Thursday, January 7 at 3:00 p.m., and will conclude on February 18. If
