The cold war border was crossed between 1961 and 1989 through "Berlin Fellowship," an ecumenical visitation program. Under the watchful eye of the Stasi, the security police, East German Christians welcomed guests from the US into their congregations and homes for an hour, an evening or a weekend of discussion, shared meals and worship. The voice of the "other" through eastern recollections and perspectives on this unique form of koinonia reveal how fellowship can be missional and transformative.
