Bonhoeffer: belonging to one another

Friday, November 30, 2012
    Feast of Andrew the Apostle
    Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.
    —Romans 13:8 (NIV)
    Whether it be a brief, single encounter or the daily community of many years, Christian community is solely this. We belong to one another only through and in Jesus Christ.
    ... Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945), Life Together [1954], tr. Daniel W. Bloesch & James H. Burtness, Fortress Press, 2004, p. 31 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may Your people be one before You.
