Sayings of the wise“So between the death of Christ and the Last Day it is only by a gracious anticipation of the last things that Christians are priviliged to live in visible fellowship with other Christians.
Not all Christians receive this blessing. The imprisoned, the sick, the scattered lonely, the proclaimers of the Gospel in heathen lands stand alone. They know that visible fellowship is a blessing.”
by Dietrich Bonhoeffer Life Together, , Chapter 1, p18
