Feast Day of Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Today is the feast day of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the patron saint of this blog and from whom comes the name of this blog.

The collect from the Lesser Feasts and Fasts says more than I could ever ramble on about:

Gracious God, the Beyond in the midst of our life, you gave grace to your servant Dietrich Bonhoeffer to know and to teach the truth as it is in Jesus Christ, and to bear the cost of following him; Grant that we, strengthened by his teaching and example, may receive your word and embrace its call with an undivided heart; through Jesus Christ our Savior, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
