Peace is born when the body of justice is brought to the light. The Church of Jesus Christ is the organism of this body in justice, peace and joy of the Spirit. At the given time justice shall arise. With the rising of the sun the day of great peace breaks. In Jesus the day has dawned. It comes anew in Christ. Peace is guaranteed when justice arises resplendent.- Eberhard Arnold
- Eberhard Arnold, November 1918 From an Essay
When poets describe their experience of the powers that move in their inmost hearts, then they speak about longing. If we allow only a few rays of hope from the poets to work upon us, we will be deeply moved by the indissoluble connection between mankind and longing. Even the smallest selection of the poetic outpouring of human longing will confront us with their deepest content: the longing for God and for unity with God. At the deepest level, they have recognized that the essence of all longing is the cry of the soul to God.

Experience of God means strength for action. There is no love that does not live in deeds. The experience of God, because it is the life of love, is also an experiencing of strength. If the substance of faith is Jesus Christ, then this faith must be just as active in His perfect love as He was. Personally and actually, the believer must represent and carry out the same that Jesus achieved.- Eberhard Arnold
We may have heard and read a great deal about the words and life of Jesus. We may be able to say a great deal about the words of the Bible. But unless the spirit and essence of His love grips and encompasses the whole of our lives to the depths, dead knowledge only leads to destruction.- Eberhard Arnold
