Life Together, Life for Others

  • Whitley College 59 The Avenue Parkville Australia (map)

Free Public Lecture | Presented by Keith Clements

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, executed by the Nazis for his role in the resistance to Hitler, refused to conform either to what nationalism or conventional piety wanted a pastor to be. In the face of massive injustice and evil he insisted that “the church is church only when it exists for others.” We know where that belief led Bonhoeffer. Where might it lead Christian ministry in our world today?

Keith Clements is British Baptist minister, theologian, writer and ecumenist who has written extensively on the life and thought of Bonhoeffer. He will also be teaching the unit Bonhoeffer’s Theology in Historical Context (Undergraduate, Postgraduate, or Audit) at Whitley College in early 2019.
