I am letting Webster's Dictionary express my thoughts: THEOLOGICAL - "Knowledge of God based on Bible as Word of God." HORIZONS - "Bounding line - between earth and sky." THEOLOGICAL HORIZONS at THE BONHOEFFER HOUSE is powerfully used by God, among students and the whole Charlottesville Community, to lead individuals to know God through Jesus Christ. It is truly the horizon between earth and sky - helping, especially students, live life down here with God's eternal daily presence. How exciting! How needed! How relevant! How crucial! One of Bonhoeffer's books is The Cost of Discipleship. Perfect words to express the motivation to give and be part the "cost" of this awesome nonprofit for "discipleship". Effecting lives for eternity - now there's a profitable investment! with admiration and appreciation for THEOLOGICAL THEOLOGICAL HORIZONS At THE BONHOEFFER HOUSE. Margie Wright

Karen and Charles Marsh are dedicated people of deep faith. As they occupy the Bonhoeffer House, they understand the needs of the students as they prepare for life, perhaps struggling with their faith - while at the university. The Bonhoeffer house is a place where students can come to for fellowship and to learn about God.The great comfort food is always a hit, specially on a cold day! I had the opportunity to partake in the Friday study for several years, and as a member of the community I was blessed as well.
