The fourth chapter of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s book Life Together “Ministry” explores how every Christian is called to active ministry within their Christian community. Bonhoeffer explores how the practices of silence, humility, and scriptural correction provide ample opportunities for life-long discipleship and Christian formation. As Bonhoeffer conceives of it, ministry is ultimately the Christian task of humbling oneself before the brothers and sisters of Christ for the purpose of mutual encouragement so that they can fully realize the love and grace of Jesus Christ in their own life.
