Because of the noise and activity of the struggle and the work, we often do not hear the hidden gentle sound and movement of the life that is coming into being. But here and there, at hours that are blessed, God lets us feel how he is everywhere at work and how his cause is growing and moving forward. The time is being fulfilled and the light shall shine, perhaps just when it seems that the darkness is impenetrable.- Eberhard Arnold
- Eberhard Arnold Innerland
We need to be quiet so we can hear his voice and see his light. Then we shall experience something wonderful. We shall find that Jesus Christ is the same in times gone by, in modern times, and in the time to come of his future kingdom. We shall find that he is the same for all, that he has the same will, the same way, the same truth and the same love, for all. And we shall learn that the voice of the Holy Spirit says the same in us all.

We work until we are weary to the bone and yet see so little fruit. Does everything remain as it was? Haven’t we made any progress? Have we actually helped at all, or have we merely scratched the surface of things? Is there any trace or glimpse of the goal we long for? What do all our efforts amount to in the face of all the forces of misery and evil in the world? Left before such agonizing questions, it is good to remember the light that shines from the stable of Bethlehem, for it is here we are able to sense what it means that the kingdom of God came as a little child.- Eberhard Arnold
Advent is a time when we await God’s intervention in the need of the present day, as he intervened then in Jesus’ birth. We long for the highest power to rescue this unhappy, torn humanity that knows so little community. Now is the time to ask God for a radical change in all things, even if this means we must go through judgment.- Eberhard Arnold
