I was listening to a Steven Ambrose history tape, and he told the most interesting story that parallels the hc experience.  He told how Hitler believed that German soldiers raised in Hitler youth would always outfight US soldiers raised in boy scouts.  Boy Scouts taught strategy, survival and rising to the occasion.  The German, Japanese and Soviet soldiers were as well equipped and conditioned as the US soldiers.  But, if their commanding officer was killed, they were paralyzed, waiting for orders.  Among the US soldiers, someone would rise to the need, even if he were a private.

House Church Talk has been renamed. These discussions, via the web, now occur at the Radically Christian Cafe.
