Coffee Break: Dietrich Bonhoeffer

coffeebreak Bonhoeffer

Time for a coffee break.

Take your coffee with a side of good reading, why don’t you? In these random coffee break blogs you’ll find some quotes, links to other blogs, or Q&As with different people. Here’s a quote from German pastor (he was also a spy and theologian, among other things), Dietrich Bonhoeffer.


“There is no way to peace along the way of safety. For peace must be dared, it is itself the great venture and can never be safe. Peace is the opposite of security. To demand guarantees is to want to protect oneself. Peace means giving oneself completely to God’s commandment, wanting no security, but in faith and obedience laying the destiny of the nations in the hand of Almighty God, not trying to direct if for selfish purposes. Battles are won, not with weapons, but with God. They are won where the way leads to the cross.”
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer
