Bonhoeffer Society to meet

The Bonhoeffer Society of Red Wing, will meet at 10 a.m. Saturday Nov. 8 at First Covenant Church. Open to anyone, the group will discuss the book “Ethics” this month.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was one of the first Germans to recognize and resist Adolph Hitler’s capacity for evil. The Nazis hanged Bonhoeffer just before the end of World War II.

By studying his historical and theological insights, people can gain a better understanding of America’s current political climate dominated by extremist views, society organizers said.

Sara Forsberg from Park Rapids, Minnesota, will present “Diamonds in the Garbage.” Her encounters with the garbage in life enabled her to uncover her real self, she said, and live a life filled with purpose.
