God hates visionary dreaming; it makes the dreamer proud and pretentious. The one who fashions a visionary ideal of community demands that it be realized by God, by others, and by oneself. They enter the community of Christians with demands, set up their own law, and judge the brethren and God accordingly…. This dreamer acts as the creator of the Christian community, as if their dream binds all together. When things do not go their way, the effort is called a failure.
~Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together
