The day

The Rebuilding Bridges conference precedes the 135th anniversary of George Bell’s birth, which falls on Sunday, February 4. Coincidentally, Bishop Bell shared a birthday with his Lutheran anti-Nazi counterpart Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was the Bishop’s junior by 23 years.

The time remaining until the Rebuilding Bridges conference opens is shown below. It gives us a moment to reflect on appropriate ways of marking such an occasion.
