Amplify Creative Arts Camp

24 Feb | 2012

In Orbiting the Giant Hairball, writer and artist Gordon MacKenzie describes his frequent visit to kindergartens and schools. He often got started by asking the children, ‘How many of you are artists?’ When his audience was very young, every hand in the room immediately shot up. But by their middle years at school, only a few students raised their hands.

Fostering love: 74 babies and counting

10 Feb | 2012

I recently tuned in to a TV talk show about two young women who had been abandoned at birth. One had been left in a paper bag, discovered in an alleyway by two teenagers. A neighbour said it was a miracle the baby had been found and saved.

New Reinforcements Join Officer Ranks

This issue carries an extended report on December 2011’s commissioning of the New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga Territory’s newest Salvation Army officers (ministers). Their enthusiasm and excitement was a wonderful tonic at the end of a busy year.

New Year Revolution: Advice for a Healthy Lifestyle

13 Jan | 2012

This War Cry offers advice from a Wellington GP, Dr Alana Wilson, for those of us wanting to tackle health and wellbeing issues this year. I like Alana’s advice to start small. The odd step backwards is to be expected, she says. ‘Just give it another go, do it another way—no one’s perfect, so don’t expect to get it right straight away.’

It's time! Call goes out for Māori Leaders

3 Dec | 2011

This week I’ve been thinking about the ‘no man is an island’ idea first floated by English poet John Donne. It gets across the idea that we’re part of something bigger—we don’t thrive when we’re cut off from others, and others are impoverished when we don’t take steps to include them.

On the ground in South Auckland

We vote every day in many of the actions we take. Whenever we turn from complacency and apathy, towards engagement and concerned action, we are voting for something positive.

Blue Mountain Adventure Centre: Conquer Your Own Mountain

4 Nov | 2011

A recent prayer that stood out to me asked God to break through into some challenging circumstances. ‘In the worst of times, may the best still happen’ was the prayer. Those words caught my ear because they seem to capture the positivity of the Christian experience.

Man vs. World

22 Oct | 2011

Adventures are encountered throughout life: a new job, getting married, being a parent, working toward a health or fitness goal, entering retirement. So many human experiences can be looked upon as adventures: a challenge is before us, the outcome is uncertain, a measure of commitment is called for, and the normal we’re used to has to be left behind.
