The Spiritual Formation round table on Social Justice continues with Christ in Community, the devotional based on Life Together, Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s classic work on fostering an authentic Christian community. Martyred by the Gestapo near the end of World War II for plotting to assassinate Hitler, Bonhoeffer’s account of a unique fellowship in an underground seminary during the Nazi years in Germany live on today, inspiring men and women with insights into the Grace of God and the cost of discipleship. This devotional reads like one of Paul’s epistles, offering practical advice on how life together in Christ can be sustained in families and groups. The role of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service is treated in simple, almost biblical, words.
