“The Salvation Army” in Every Language.

My friend set herself a challenge recently to be able to “The Salvation Army” in every language! I thought I’d do some homework for her and look through the 2012 Yearbook (It was within reach, so why not?!) Here’s the result. The “countries” bit may be unusual because of the way that the Yearbook lists … Continue reading

Convinced, Entirely Convinced.

Extracted from “The Life of General Booth – Chapter 25” “The following descriptions of Holiness Meetings, taken from The Christian Mission Magazine, afford no real picture of the extraordinary sights which were witnessed, nor do they give an adequate account of the effects produced upon the souls of those who took part in them.

The low-neck.

A serious warning against attempting a fashion-shift back to the good-ol’ days of the high-neck uniform… “I should like to talk about the care of your health and physical powers. There is no time for that; but remember that I want you to take care of your throats. Do not sacrifice your throats for too … Continue reading

The Climax

I was preparing a meeting lead for a meeting coming up soon, and as I was doing it, realised that I was working from the bottom up. I’m not sure if I’ve ever done it like that before, but if I have, I haven’t noticed. Literally, I had written in a song for during the … Continue reading

Brigadier Power

She was speaking of an anonymous “Brigadier Power”, but I believe the same is true (to a large extent..?) of Capt. Stephen Court, our highly esteemed Training Principle, 108 years later; “This man is a flame. His theology is of the apostolic brand, comprising a merciful and just God, an atoning Saviour, a full and … Continue reading

Here I Am.

Too much of what I do is motivated by guilt. I need to concentrate on living a pro-active, rather than a reactive life. A life where I say “I intend to..” rather than “I should do..”. A life where I look forward to the challenges, rather than trying to make excuses as to why I … Continue reading

Top Ten Reasons Why Men Shouldn’t Be Ordained.

The cut-out below can add good food for thought to the Women-in-Ministry debate that occurs to no end outside The Salvation Army, and is often avoided within The Salvation Army, because “we’ve had women in ministry from the beginning…” Yes we have, but… So as Nathan Hobby says, few arguments are as engaging as humour. Maybe … Continue reading

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
