'The serious Christian, set down for the first time in a Christian community, is likely to bring with him a definite idea of what Christian life together should be and try and realize it. But God's grace speedily shatters such dreams. Just as surely God desires to lead us to a knowledge of genuine Christain fellowship, so surely must we be overwhelmed by a great general disillusionment with others, with Christians in general, and if we are fortunate, with ourselves.'
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together, p.15.
