There is a worthy praise

I wish to grandly raise

This morning and all my days

To heaven’s God above

I praise Him for Revelation

For His unique Creation

For providing great Salvation

Because of heaven’s high love.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (and his twin sister Sabine) born 2/4/1906 to Karl and Paula Bonhoeffer, at Breslau, Poland.  Trained as a Lutheran in Germany he also attended a seminary in the US.  He lectured at the U. of Berlin and as Hitler’s popularity spread (churches of Germany became propaganda tools) Bonhoeffer questions the treatment and mistreatment of the Jews and began to stand against Hitler’s power.  (Some say he was in on a plot to kill Hitler, which may or may not be true.)  He was engaged to Maria von Wedemeyer but was arrested before they could marry.  He was hung in 1944.   His Cost of Discipleship is well worth reading.

“When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.”

“The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children.”

“Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ.”
