So that you can live – Volker Schunck, DRIFTER'S DAY

The One, who lives at the margin of society, because God takes shape in him,
meet you in silence,

that you can recognize God.

The One, who is too precious for this world, which nails him to the cross,
because it doesn’t understand him, touches your wounds,

so that you can live.

The One, who is born out of God, who is oblivious to himself,
who lives,
because God is everything to him,

bless you.

(Volker Schunck)


I am Volker Schunck and live in Dresden, Germany. First I was an industrial clerk, then I studied theology. Through my engagement with Zen, I became aware of the Christian mysticism. Meanwhile, I go my own way. For me, faith is not a world-view but a being. It is important to me, not to live lost in thought but aware and intensely. For me, this also includes careful handling of other people. The NVC (Nonviolent Communication), which I learned during my training as a mediator, helps me with this.
