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.
Ahead of last Christmas there was an interesting debate about The Salvation Army’s drive to receive donated new toys for children. Some were questioning the policy, with a few even arguing that ‘beggars can’t be choosers’.
Now, before long-time churchgoers gasp in dismay, the large Xmas on the facing page is not an admission of defeat by The Salvation Army that the world has finally succeeded in squeezing Christ out of Christmas.
This edition introduces the 26 men and women from New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga who will be ordained and commissioned as Salvation Army officers over the next few weeks.
This is an early shout-out that the Christian season of Advent begins soon—on Sunday the 29th of November.
Some of our War Cry editions have a unifying theme; others don’t. And sometimes, even though there was no theme intended, a common thread seems to emerge.
It seems as if the world is changing before our eyes. Poverty and conflict are driving refugees from war-torn countries in a desperate search for safety and a more hopeful future for themselves and their families
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.
