Thought for the Day from Karl Barth

“The activity of the community is related to the gospel only in so far as it is no more than a crater formed by the explosion of a shell and seeks to be no more than a void in which the gospel reveals itself”

Karl Barth, The Epistle to the Romans (second edition), p. 36.

It is perfectly true, as philosophers say, that life must be understood backwards.

But they forget the other proposition, that it must be lived forwards.
