There remains an experience of incomparable value … to see the great events of world history from below; from the perspective of the outcast, the suspects, the maltreated, the powerless, the oppressed, the reviled — in short, from the perspective of those who suffer … to look with new eyes on matters great and small.

There is no way to peace along the way to safety. For peace must be dared. It is the great venture.

Teaching about Christ begins in silence…. In so far as the Church proclaims the Word, it falls down silently in truth before the inexpressible: ‘In silence I worship the unutterable’ (Cyril of Alexandria). The spoken Word is the inexpressible; this unutterable is the Word…. Although it is cried out by the Church in the world, it remains the inexpressible. To speak of Christ means to keep silent; to keep silent about Christ means to speak. When the Church speaks rightly out of a proper silence, then Christ is proclaimed.

~Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Christ the Center
