Great Quotes from Bonhoeffer

I am reading Eric Metaxas biography of Bonhoeffer. It is a fantastic work and I just had to share some of these great quotes.

Where a people prays, there is the church, and where the church is; there is never loneliness.

Christianity preaches the infinite worth of that which is seemingly worthless and the infinite worthlessness of that which is seemingly so valued.

Commenting on race relations in the 1920s:

The separation of whites from blacks in the southern states really does make a rather shameful impression….It is a bit unnerving that in a country with so inordinately many slogans about brotherhood, peace, and so on, such things still continue completely uncorrected.
