quote for the week: Dietrich Bonhoeffer- our place in the sacred story

What is important is not that God is a spectator and participant in our life today, but that we are attentive listeners and participants in God's action in the sacred story, the story of Christ on earth.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together, p. 62, quoted by Kevin J. Vanhoozer, The Drama of Doctrine: A Canonical Linguistic Approach to Christian Theology, p. 399
