The third chapter of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s book Life Together gives Christians a glimpse into how the spiritual practices of meditation, intercession, and even silence can be invaluable tools for Christian discipleship and, ultimately, community. A surprising chapter for a book expressly about community, Bonhoeffer shows us how even our “individual” lives shape and form us for our communal life in Jesus Christ. This insight not only forms how we understand the significance of our personal spiritual growth but its implications for the life of the Christian community that we have been called into.
