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.
I’ve been enjoying listening to the Christmas present my husband bought me last year. It’s a CD by Australian troubadour Paul Kelly and Kiwi music icon Neil Finn. The pair performed in an Australian tour last year and the CD (with DVD—how’s that for value!) I received for Christmas is a recording of the amazing performances that resulted.
It was a real blessing to be at the commissioning and ordination of the New Zealand Disciples of the Cross training session toward the end of 2013. It’s always refreshing to see the energy and enthusiasm of those who are starting out on this particular journey.
Let’s not talk about New Year’s resolutions. Instead, let’s talk about setting new habits. Because if we really want to see positive change in our lives this year, helpful habits are what we need.
Those who follow Jesus Christ see Christmas as one of the most important chapters in God’s rescue mission for humankind. All our hopes are laid on the one who was born in Bethlehem: Jesus Christ—son of God.
A song in The Song Book of The Salvation Army says, ‘You ask me how I know he [Jesus] lives? He lives within my heart.’ But would this type of subjective evidence convince you Jesus is alive in the world?
The small group I’m part of at church has been studying the New Testament book of Hebrews, which isn’t one of those books you’d recommend to a Bible-reading newbie.
This edition profiles The Salvation Army’s work at the Howard Hospital in Zimbabwe. This hospital has given valued practical service to its local community for almost a century, although recently it has faced some personnel and funding challenges
There are so many great memories from our recent Congress with the Army’s international leaders, General André Cox and Commissioner Silvia Cox, at the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau last month. We’ve captured some in this edition, starting with the Just Action conference.
This edition of War Cry carries an excerpt from Set Free, which tells the story of The Salvation Army’s long-standing work with alcoholics, addicts and, more recently, problem gamblers in New Zealand. Over 100 years since we began this work, lives are still being changed and people are still being set free.
