‘Life together’ by Dietrich Bonhoeffer. —
In this season of regrouping after the pandemic, there’s lots of room for reflection about community–about what it means to share faith and experiences and a common journey. It’s a great time to read Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s classic text on Christian community, called simply Life Together.
Bonhoeffer wrote this short book while he was teaching at an underground seminary in Germany in the 1930s, amidst Hitler’s rise to power. He wrote powerfully about the gift of community and what it looks like to live as followers of Jesus in a complex time.
Participants will be connected with others based on each person’s availability, with the intent that groups meet for weekly discussion. Many (or maybe all) of the groups will meet via Zoom, so you should feel free to sign up even if you’re joining from afar. We expect the study to last for 8-10 weeks.

Perhaps you read Life Together years ago, or maybe you’ve never heard of it before. Either way, I look forward to reading this wonderful book together this season–I hope you’ll join!
PS – You’ll notice that the registration form asks whether you’d like a hard copy from the church or you’ll get your own copy. We are finding it very difficult to order hard copies right now (I imagine this has to do with supply chain issues), so if you can use an electronic version (Kindle and other e-reader versions are readily available), you will likely get a copy quicker. We will still plan to place an order for hard copies, but it may take a while to receive them.
