Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) on “the Body” from “Life Together”

“We are members of a body, not only when we choose to be, but in our whole existence.  Every member serves the whole body, either to its health or to its destruction.  This is no mere theory, it is a spiritual reality.  And the Christian community has often experienced its effects with disturbing clarity, sometimes destructively and sometimes fortunately.”
