the Interns Waking the Dead notes

You long time readers know that I like the book Waking the Dead a lot. So much that it's on the reading list for the SPACEintern. Fun surprise when her notes popped up in my rss reader. Here are some of the highlights.
You are never a great man when you have more mind than heart. -Beauchene
The Heart is central. The Bible addresses the heart more than any other topic-more than works or service, more than belief or obedience more than money, and even more than worship.
The heart is our source of faith, hope, and love.

Memory, Creativity and Courage are functions of the heart.

Enemy's plan: Make them so busy, they ignore the heart. Wound them so deeply, they don't want a heart. Twist their theology, so they despise the heart. Take away their courage. Destroy their creativity. Make intimacy with God impossible for them.
Three Eternal Truths:
1.Things are not what they seem
2.This is a world at war
3.We have a crucial role to play

This is our most desperate hour.

What sort of tale have I fallen into?

"We and the world, my children, will always be at war.
Retreat is impossible.
Arm yourselves." -Leif Enger
You can read more from her notes at post 1 and 2.

Once again, a kind of cool feedback loop from being able to read notes real-time.
