The Picture That Haunts Me Today

I have this picture that hangs in my study. It is of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

It has been talking to me since yesterday. In fact, it was very hard to focus on the sermon and small group lesson Sunday because of his stink eye. He is speaking German, and I can’t understand most of what he says, but I keep hearing in my heart phrases like “never again” and “refugee” and “neighbor” and “ethics” over and over. He is haunting me.

I thought he should haunt you, too.
