This day of prayer and reflection will draw on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s life of Christian discipleship in the face of personal danger and public evil. Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran pastor and academic theologian who opposed Hitler’s Nazi regime. He was imprisoned in April 1943 and executed at Flossenbürg concentration camp on 9th April 1945, so this year is the 70th anniversary of his martyrdom.
Bonhoeffer trusted that Christ was always with him and this enabled him to respond in faith to the most terrifying of challenges. What can Bonhoeffer’s example of costly discipleship teach us today?
Bob Thomas has been a Reader in the Portsmouth Diocese since 1993. He was a teacher of German in the UK and of English in Germany. Bob is an Associate of the Iona Community.
