Peace is born of thoughts of the good. In the strength of peace one wants the good for all men and all things. A heart that thinks evil cheats itself and all others of peace. It becomes unhappy and spreads unhappiness. But he who works towards peace through the good, brings the joy of life to men.- Eberhard Arnold

- Eberhard Arnold Meeting transcript
The hour of decision has come over the world; even the blind must see it! Therefore it is important now to get together, not for our sake, but the Ark is meant, that it may reach the shore and lay the foundations for a new world. It is meant in the sense that we belong wherever there is the seed of a new world, where the light of peace and unity has broken in through the dark layers which surround the world. All must come together and remain together, for it is the hour of decision, and no disunion can be tolerated. It is a matter of life or death, of love or hatred, of God or Satan.

It is the deathly loneliness of the Crucified that frees us from our own importance. It is the step into death by faith that leads us through the grave to the certainty of life. Christ has accepted me so utterly that He becomes united with me and says, “I am this poor sinner; that is, all his sin and death is my sin and my death.” In this unity unto death we are freed from all sin, in spite of the most frightening awareness of sin. We gain life in the Risen One.- Eberhard Arnold
Through the experience of God, man is drawn into the end of creation. The fiery baptism of God’s judgment wants to revive the phoenix from the ashes. The dying of the old world heralds the beginning of the new. When the human heart is touched by God, it is close to death because life is coming to it. The death of Christ brings the resurrection.- Eberhard Arnold
