A Conversation for The Salvation Army

A well written piece which I enjoyed very much, we have a fairly large Citadel here in Gosport known as the Crossways. Many years ago when I was an active member of the church the choir used to go and sing in a Salvation Army womens hostal in Whitechapel, I always remember a Jewish lady called Rhoda who used to love the visits we made even though we weren't of the same faith, she even tought us some Jewish songs

One officer of the local Sally Ann had to take out all of her piercings (except ear studs) before putting her uniform on. Whe was chair of the local Churches Together group. I like 'em. I think they do a great job. Smashing article, well done!

The Salvation Army has a great tradition of reaching the lost for Jesus Christ, although they are not so active in North America in public preaching and testifying as they were a generation ago.( I cannot offer comment about what they are doing in th UK ).
That Catherine Booth was a feminist certainly would not square with the present-day meaning of the term. She was not so much concerned about gender equality as she was in women using theirvaried spiritual gifts to preach the Gospel alongside equally-gifted men. Her focus remained solely, the spiritual welfare of all souls -- not the advancement of the fair sex.
