Salvos Out There

a Biblical thought...
And Hezekiah prayed to the LORD : "O LORD Almighty, God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. Give ear, O LORD, and hear; open your eyes, O LORD, and see; listen to all the words Sennacherib has sent to insult the living God. (Isaiah 37:16-17)

a Book thought...
In times of change, learners inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists. (Eric Hoffer)

a Dave thought...
The Salvation Army Australia Southern Territory has launched its new campaign, 'Salvos Out There'. Its designed to encourage renewal and commitment to the unique and challenging mission it faces in a rapidly changing world. The concept of this film is to show Salvos present and active in everyday life, but 'set apart' for a specific purpose and mission.
This six week campaign has resulted from Connecting Forward a consultation with over 1000 Salvos across our territory and include...

Spiritual Hunger:We are living in a time of spiritual hunger in Australia. As Salvos, we need to recognise that God is the only one who can satisfy our hunger and prepare us for His purpose.

Diversity & Inclusiveness: Salvos recognise that all people created by God for His purposes and as such are to reflect the diversity of God’s Kingdom. We want to build a culture of inclusiveness, beginning with a community banquet that includes all ages, cultures, classes, educational backgrounds and gender.

Reforming Society: A fair go for all

This six week campaign will be taking place at all corps over the next seven months and I'm sure will have a massive impact as we each understand what God is asking of our movement in these days. www.salvosoutthere.com

Just a thought.
