About Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Imprisoned by the Gestapo under the Nazi regime, German Lutheran Pastor-Theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer felt compelled to ask 'Who is Christ for us today?' In this talk we'll explore how Bonhoeffer was influenced by a year spent in the the USA to become and remain a pacifist, and was moved by the Black church to take a stand against Hitler, even to the point of active resistance leading to his execution. How does his story and theology shape how we follow Jesus in his triumphal path to the cross this Palm Sunday?
