Adult Sunday School During Lent

Starting February 18, join Pastor Cuttino as we explore some of the writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the great Lutheran pastors and writers. We will be using his work Life Together as the primary text. Classes will be designed so you do not have to read the book in advance (though you’re certainly welcome to). Some copies will be provided though you may purchase your own, too.  Here’s a little about his work:

After his martyrdom at the hands of the Gestapo in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer continued his witness in the hearts of Christians around the world. His Letters and Papers from Prison became a prized testimony to Christian faith and courage, read by thousands. Now in Life Together we have Pastor Bonhoeffer’s experience of Christian community.  This story of a unique fellowship in an underground seminary during the Nazi years reads like one of Paul’s letters. It gives practical advice on how life together in Christ can be sustained in families and groups. The role of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service is treated in simple, almost biblical, words. Life Together is bread for all who are hungry for the real life of Christian fellowship.
