I am seeing the world for the first time O my life, feeling like a young lad. I left most of my books at home, though. Maybe some of you good readers can help me from time to time. For example, I’m not sure what the W.R. initials stand for in Dietrich W.R. Bethge. The reference to the three names, I think, include the Bonhoeffer family (covered by the first name Dietrich, so it would also include his mother’s paternal ancestry), the last name his father’s name; and I’m assuming that the middle initials refer to the father’s maternal ancestors–but I’m not so sure.
If you are interested, I’ve been posting travel notes at Faith Matters. I hope to post notes there on an epic poem about Frederick the Bruce. I also occasionally post translations of the Bonhoeffer selections at Wellspring. (See my response to the comments on the previous selection–Baptismal Letter 1.)
Thanks for reading. I’m having the time of my life, but I’m missing my dear quinie Sonja and wee Elijah.
