My new favorite Bonhoeffer quote:
“Every human wish dream that is injected into the Christian community is a hindrance to genuine community and must be banished if genuine community is to survive. He who loves his dream of community more than the Christian community itself becomes a destroyer of the latter, even though his personal intentions may be ever so honest and earnest and sacrificial.”
Our churches would be empty.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together, Pg. 27
