BONHOEFFER, a documentary film by Marin Doblmeier, will be shown at the church on Sunday, October 24 at 6:00 p.m. This is a 93-minute documentary film that tells the dramatic story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the young German theologian who offered one of the first clear voices of resistance to Adolf Hitler. Bonhoeffer openly challenged his church to stand with the Jews in their time of need, and eventually joined his family in the plots to kill Hitler. His books, Cost of Discipleship, Letters and Papers from Prison, and Ethics, were
written during the struggle and are considered classics in the world of religion and ethics. 

On Sunday, October 17 & 24, Marilynne Robinson will lead the 9:15 a.m. adult education session in an exploration of the life and work of Bonhoeffer. Copies of her essay, “Bonhoeffer” from her book The Death of Adam are available in Rockwood Hall.
