War Cry is a fortnightly 24-page Christian magazine for Salvation Army readers and all those exploring faith issues.
In 2014, we started publishing online through ISSUU. Editions are generally published four weeks after cover date.
Recently, my friend Jenny and I were travelling along a dark 70 km road, when a car from a 100 km zone—with no lights —hit an island in the middle of the road. I looked in my rear view mirror just as the car smashed into the vehicle behind us.
My brother and sister-in-law just spent two weeks in Iran. The first comment both made to me was how friendly and welcoming Iranians are—something I’ve heard a lot from people who’ve visited the country.
Last week, my husband and I took a big step in our family life: we attended our first class for people interested in fostering and adoption. Where God will take us on this journey, only he knows.
My first job for War Cry was interviewing John Kirwan about his book on parenting and child and teenage mental health. A year and a half later we’re returning to the subject of mental health.
Over January I spent three weeks with my big brother and his family as I transitioned to my new appointment here in Wellington, and we keenly awaited the birth of their fourth child and the first girl in the family.
We’re currently commemorating the centenary of the First World War, the ‘war to end all wars’, but there’s no doubt humanity is still too often drawn to warfare as a way to solve conflict.
While at high school, my English class spent one entire term reading through Shakespeare’s ‘The Merchant of Venice’. Every lesson, we simply swapped parts and read through the play.
I’m sure I wasn’t the only person to mutter under their breath (and it wasn’t a quiet mutter) as the first Easter buns and chocolate eggs appeared on supermarket shelves scarcely after the Christmas crackers were removed.
In this edition, Major Heather Rodwell reflects on the transitions she’s experienced throughout her life as a woman of faith, a Salvation Army officer, as a wife and then as a divorcée.
