Worship and Service

Most of my life was spent serving and worshiping Christ at The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army


Articles of War

What The Salvation Army is all about.

The good, the bad, and the music.

Good - what's right with The Salvation Army

Bad - what's wrong with The Salvation Army

Music - a brief look at miltant themes in Salvation Army music

How To Be A Soldier... When You Don't Have A Local Corps

Alas! We recently learned that our local congregation is soon to be homeless: our parent body has decided to close its worship center in our community, prompting this exploration of How To Be A Soldier... When You Don't Have A Local Corps.


A song that was especially meaningful to me during a diffucult time I experienced several years ago.
