Coming Soon: 40 Days of Discernment

"Revival of church life always brings in its train a richer understanding of the Scriptures. Behind all the slogans and catchwords of ecclesiastical controversy, necessary though they are, there arises a more determined quest for him who is the sole object of it all, for Jesus Christ himself. What did Jesus mean to say to us? What is his will for us today? How can he help us to be good Christians in the modern world? In the last resort, what we want to know is not, what would this or that man or this or that Church have of us, but what Jesus Christ himself wants of us."

-D. Bonhoeffer, Cost of Discipleship
