Gratitude brings people together

22 Aug | 2014

There’s a lovely phenomenon of gratitude doing the rounds on Facebook at the moment, with people challenged to ‘give thanks daily, for three things for fi ve days’, and to nominate three friends to do the same.

Getting to a better place

13 Aug | 2014

I often share stories about The Salvation Army’s work with recovering alcoholics and drug addicts with readers. That’s because my husband works in Addiction Services, and most Thursday nights I go along to support him at the Recovery Church he leads at The Salvation Army in Newtown

Are the Sallies too political?

24 Jul | 2014

The New Zealand General Election of 20 September is growing ever closer. The Salvation Army is preparing a series of short election videos designed to help people think about important issues facing all New Zealanders.

I heard—and saw—the most powerful definition of what it means to take a leap of faith a few weeks back at Recovery Church.

Next weekend is Founders’ Day in The Salvation Army; a day when we commemorate the contribution of our early mission pioneers and consider how their example can inspire us today.

Choose your colour

12 Jun | 2014

Many of the stories shared in the pages of War Cry over its history have taken courage to tell. In the time I have been editor, I have been reminded time and time again of people’s courage in the face of adversity—and of the power of God to heal and restore.

What are you watching?

4 Jun | 2014

I can be an annoying person to watch a movie with. I frequently argue with the plot, criticise the casting and complain about the script. If it’s a mystery, I like to predict the ending. If it’s a romance, I like to point out to my children the unrealistic nature of the scenario that’s being played out.

Too much unfairness

30 May | 2014

Every parent has had to adjudicate over the issue of ‘fairness’. It sometimes seems like the constant preoccupation of small children desperate to ensure that some other sibling doesn’t get better treatment than they do.

When love hurts

2 May | 2014

Mother’s Day is almost upon us, a day when people keenly feel the absence of mothers that have passed away. I so appreciate the sensitivity of Salvation Army church services in honouring absent mothers and making this day a little easier for those who feel sad.
