Not just a day for the boys

We're all part of team New Zealand

4 Nov | 2017

One of the early things The Salvation Army did after New Zealand’s new government was announced was to congratulate our Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on social media.

Be an original

18 Oct | 2017

Hanging on the wall in our house is a large framed photograph that reads: ‘In a world of copycats, be an original.’ To me, those words capture the meaning of Romans 12:2, ‘Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.’

4 Oct | 2017

I can’t dance! I have a sort-of-dance my kids mock me about, where I shuffle without moving my feet. But in the list of where Salvation Army officers will be deployed next year (see page 18), I’m going to move my feet to a new mission opportunity after 16 years with War Cry.

The end starts today

29 Jul | 2017

There’s a lot of discussion in New Zealand at the moment about euthanasia. Some of those calling for assisted suicide are people we could describe as the ‘worried well’, those anxious about what their life will be like at the end.
