Dietrich Bonhoeffer on the Cost of Discipleship

Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer was hung  at the Flossenbürg concentration camp on April 9th 1945 for following his conscience and participating in the German Resistance against the Nazi regime. Bonhoeffer well knew the cost of answering the call to discipleship. Yet his faith was so deep that as he was being led away to an eventual execution, he passed along a message to  Bishop George Bell of Chichester: "This is the end — for me the beginning of life."
