Silence in the Face of Evil

Here’s the quote I shared in my sermon this morning.

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” — Author Unknown [1]


[1] As I mentioned this morning, this quote is often attributed to Dietrich Bonhoeffer and I think he would have heartily agreed with it, but it appears that he didn’t actually say it (no citation can be found). What ultimately matters is not who first said it, but that it rings true.
