“Jesus himself did not try to convert the two thieves on the cross;
he waited until one of them turned to him.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison
“We must be ready to allow ourselves to be interrupted by God.”
“I’m still discovering, right up to this moment,
that it is only by living completely in this world that one learns to have faith.
I mean living unreservedly in life’s duties, problems,
successes and failures, experiences and perplexities.
In so doing, we throw ourselves completely into the arms of God.”
