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.
We have a wonderful story of hope and healing in this edition —of the undeniable power of God at work in the life of a young woman, Jess Bishop. It’s a reminder that God heals today, just as he did in the time of Jesus.
For this year’s Father’s Day, we wanted to give our readers an unashamedly male edition of War Cry. And with this in mind, we’ve secured the writing services of more than our usual number of male writers.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
