    Wayfinding with Dietrich Bonhoeffer: The Conspiracy E4

    Wayfinding with Dietrich Bonhoeffer: The Conspiracy E4

    The brutality of Adolf Hitler's Nazi ideology was unrelenting. As pastor, theologian, and vocal Nazi dissenter, Dietrich Bonhoeffer devoted many years to every possible means of peaceful resistance, but upon his return to Germany after a brief second sojourn in America, Bonhoeffer's energy shifted to the insider Conspiracy to remove Hitler. In this episode, Joe and Jonathan look behind the scenes of the conspiracy: what was it, who was involved, why did Bonhoeffer join, what was his role, how did this decision interact with his ethics, and how did things turn out?

    Wayfinding with Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Come Before Winter E3

    Have you ever made a decision you agonized over, or perhaps later regretted? In this conversation of Wayfinding, Joe and Jonathan discuss the implications of three words from the apostle Paul for one of Bonhoeffer's most consequential decisions: his early exodus from America and his return to a Germany in the throes of warfare. An original play by the same title, "Come Before Winter", written by Joe and Doug Peterson, debuted in September 2022.
