A new language

20 Oct

Again got this from Bart Campolo’s blog but personally have a great affection for Bonhoeffer and his story since a college presentation a few years ago. Bonhoeffer ‘Agent of Grace’ is a fantastic retelling of his story.

It is not for us to fortell the day, but the day will come when people are
called to utter the word of God in such a way that the world is changed and
renewed. There will be a new language, perhaps, quite unreligious, but
liberating and saving, like the language of Jesus, so that people are horrified
at it, and yet conquered by its power. –Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Let’s all say a huge coorperate Amen to that!
