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.
My husband, Keith, has led Recovery Church in Wellington for five years. And so, reading about its origins in this edition, I am immensely thankful for Kevin and Merilyn Goldsack’s obedience to God’s vision for this remarkable community!
The Salvation Army’s Reintegration Service helps ex-prisoners reconnect with the community in a way that’s safe for them and others. But that’s not always an easy task in a country prone to Not in My Backyard syndrome.
If there’s one thing the Canterbury earthquakes taught us, it was the richness that comes through community. After the earthquakes, we immediately saw people pulling together to help each other.
War Cry has been highlighting hospitality, most recently in a series of articles by Coralie Bridle. In this edition, Captain Ross Wardle extends the concept to consider the hospitality churches may or may not show to gay and lesbian people.
It was an absolute privilege to be part of The Salvation Army’s international Boundless congress in London last month, serving as part of the international media team. The spectacle of our 150th celebrations was incredible, inspiring and unforgettable!
This edition’s feature article is by Pakistani Salvationist Nazia Yousaf. Many Salvationists in New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga will have met Nazia’s parents, Lieut-Colonels Yousaf Ghulam and Rebecca Yousaf, who recently served in New Zealand.
Over the next few weeks, Salvation Army churches around New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga turn their attention to raising funds for overseas mission.
It’s a joy for our team to bring you this commemorative edition of War Cry to mark 150 years of The Salvation Army.
For a change, I’d like to start at the back of this edition, with our Firezone article on lessons from The Bachelor NZ, with Ingrid Barratt suggesting some dos and don’ts of dating.
