We need Bonhoeffer!

He can give is the courage to tell the more macabre truths of the last century to the next generation without bringing it do despair. In the disturbing “exhibition hall” of the twentieth century, lined with genocide, abuse of power, forces of cultural disintegration, and sheer hatred for humanity, Bonhoeffer is a witness to God’s love, to justice, and to hope. In community, we can open our eyes to the world’s evil and still be hopeful for the human race and the world we create and inhabit.
