A weeklong retreat in early summer 2017 for lay and ordained Christian leaders based on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s community practice at the Finkenwalde seminary, as outlined in “Life Together” and other writings from that period. The purpose of this one-week experience at Freeborn Lutheran Church and Bonhoeffer Botanical Gardens in Stanwood, WA is to engage a community in a week of “Life Together” for personal renewal, learning, spiritual and vocational discernment, and community formation, as a way to begin connecting Bonhoeffer’s insights and work to the challenges we face today. Evening lectures by Rev. Dr. Mark Brocker connecting Dietrich Bonhoeffer's work to the challenges of today with the theme "Faith under fire" will be open to the public.
