I will be using the questions given at the back of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy as the prompts for us. (Thank you editor for writing these questions.) If you have a burning question or thought as we go along, please feel free to email me or leave it in the comments during the week and I will post it on Monday for everyone to see. (If the question is answered in the comments before Monday, I may not post it. Kapeech? (Ha! How on earth is that spelled?)
From the Prologue:
"In the Prologue, the author wrote that "Winston Churchill fused the Germans and the Nazis into a single hated enemy, the better to defeat it swiftly." Who is our nation's "enemy"? In our own society, are we, like Churchill, ever prone to fusing another group of individuals with this enemy, thus creating a 'single hated enemy"? What do you think about this kind of grouping?"
"In chapter1 we learned that during Dietrich's childhood, the Bonhoeffers rarely went to church. Their faith was "mostly of a homegrown variety," Is God satisfied with a homegrown-variety faith, or are Christians meant to attend church, living out their faith together? What Scriptures support your view? Can a person still be influential for good while practicing "home-grown" faith? How?"
Next week we will cover chapters 2, 3, 4.
It is not many pages but perhaps it material will be great.
We shall see how it goes.
Please leave your comments and thought, quotes and ideas in the comments!
I look forward to hearing from you all.
Even if you are not reading the book you may have opinions on the questions asked....join in anyway!
Are we being photobombed?
This is up for debate. :o)
We went to Le Baguette on Saturday afternoon.
Katie had a lemon tart and I had french onion soup.
Both were yummy.
On Saturday afternoons a group of people come and sit together at a long table, they eat and speak French to one another.
Just thought you might like to know.
Also. You must bring cash to Le Baguette.
This always causes much trouble for Katie and me.
We never have enough cash.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Just one more volleyball tournament and then we are done with club volleyball for the season.
Thanks for coming around and saying 'hi'!
