To experience the totality of those who believe in Christ as one organism, as one body, as the Body of Christ, is a special experience of faith. With this Body we are indissolubly united; its life is our life, its deficiency is our deficiency, its weakness is our weakness, its strength is our strength.- Eberhard Arnold
- Eberhard Arnold From a letter, May 1920
How glad I am that you are so positively united with me in the experience of peace and of Jesus’ spirit of love! The question is not at all one of our only refusing to do military service, though people always put it in this negative way. This refusal, after all, follows as a matter of course from a positive experience of the Spirit of Christ. When this Spirit, which is expressed so very intensely in the Sermon on the Mount and in Romans 8, penetrates us and glows in us, then we will become victorious people who must work as long as it is daylight—work in the productive, creative work of love.
