Our first SA Moscow offices on our re-entry, following our being banished for almost 70 years, were located in a building that was part of the immense Russian Kremlin complex. It was two doors from the impressive suite of offices that housed the Minister of Social Protection, Madame Ella Pomfilova. She was a regular un-announced drop-in to our office and twice brought a very special visitor, President Boris Yeltsin's wife, Naina. Our discussions centered on the social service needs of the Russian people, partnering with local educational institutions in the training of social service professionals, and establishing a daily feeding program to Moscow's 80,000 elderly, poor population.

The need for volunteers in Moscow was no different than what we experienced in St. Petersburg (the city of Leningrad's name had changed during the course of the preceding 12 months).

Among the many students, government employees and professional social workers who came to our aid was Igor. Igor was a man in his late 30s, one of our first recruits and sworn in as a soldier by General Eva Burrows. He walked with the aid of crutches, wore large, thick-lens spectacles, and often appeared to be teetering, off balance, perhaps due to his rather large head and upper torso. He had though a gentle and endearing manner; he seemed particularly well suited to act as our uniformed volunteer receptionist and telephone operator. His appointment to that position ensured that he would not be required to move about the offices too much, and afforded him a necessary and respected role. 


There was constant traffic in and out of our offices. Visitors included government officials from many nations; Ambassadors, a delegation from the Vatican, and countless NGOs, all seeking information on how best to aid in the distribution of medical equipment, medicine, food and other urgently needed supplies. The country was bankrupt and without even the most basic social services structure.

Igor worked feverishly to answer the telephone and to coordinate the visit of the many who came to us for information. We had become the unofficial representative of the Russian government in disseminating, coordinating, and establishing the necessary roles of many foreign NGOs. However, in Igor's eagerness to serve, a personal area of very real concern presented itself; Igor the soldier. His daunting and ever increasing responsibilities seemed to wear on him. When there was a lull in telephone calls or slowing of traffic entering the offices’ double-doors, Igor would place his large head on the desk and simply doze off. Whenever necessary, a gentle prod brought Igor back to reality, and for the next few minutes he was again wide-awake and active. As the weeks and month wore on, it became clear however, that Igor's strength was waning. But who could possible deny a man of such gracious spirit and dedication his appointed soldier's role?

It was spring, 1993, and Igor was at his desk, putting his head on the desk between telephone calls. This day though was different. The telephone rang, and visitors came calling, but by late morning Igor wasn't responsive. No degree of trying to rouse Igor brought any sign of life. The local medical team, with a clinic in our building, was called and subsequent to examining Igor announced to a stunned group of his colleagues that he was dead. Igor, a recently enrolled soldier had been promoted to glory, in full uniform and seated next to the army banner. How very appropriate we thought...

We later learned that Igor was well aware that his time in this world was limited, and even more so if he took on any strenuous activities. Igor had been warned that the simple act of leaving his apartment might be too strenuous and deemed a health risk.
 Although no one ever alerted us to his delicate medical conditions there were many days when I thought seriously of asking Igor to resign his role as the unpaid, official "SA representative". The daily demands on Igor seemed to be taking its toll on him.

Thinking back I now know why I didn't do so. His appointment to that highly visible position wasn't really made by me, it had been made by a much higher authority.

Igor worked in one of the nation's most respected, historical and honored buildings, not at the direction of his government or me; he was appointed by the King! Igor worked and died in Royal service and now wears the Crown of Life.






"Will there be any stars in that crown I receive when I leave my earthly shroud behind?" (Swedish SA Songbook) Painting by Swedish artist Bengt Engman. The salvationist asks that he be allowed to wear his guernsey as his robes of white are presented. The original painting hangs in the corps hall in Vansbro, Sweden, the home town of the artist and where he was a Junior Soldier.

Called to, with and for the poor.





‘Go for souls and go for the worst.’ 
William Booth

I have a friend who has a six year old son. As they were headed out the door to the playground one day the boy asked his father if he’d mind leaving his blackberry at home. ‘Why?’ asked the dad. ‘Because when you bring it – you aren’t really with me,’ was the answer. Ouch. Any of us who struggle to multi-task as a working parent knows how true this really is and yet it’s true for much more than our families – it’s true for our calling. How many of us understand our calling to be present with the poor and yet hardly ever touch those we are called to serve. 

Presence is how the gospel grows – it’s the way people see God up close and personal. Eugene Peterson, in The Message, puts it like this: ‘God put skin on and moved into the neighbourhood.’ In a western context this means that we have to be willing to find the poor and be ‘present’ with them. Not just work for them but to be available and accessible to those we are called to serve. Presence is a gift. It’s God’s great gift to us and it’s our great gift to the world… we are called to be present. I’m aware as I’m writing this that many of my officer colleagues around the world live among the poor – present in body, mind and spirit and they are an example for the believers in this regard. I esteem them and thank God for their daily obedience.

Our history is full of rich examples of the transformation of presence. When India had a problem with the criminal tribes, back in the day, they asked The Salvation Army to help. Their first strategy was to move Officers into the tribe – to be present with those they were called to serve. This presence is a key to transformation: Inside-out strategy. When The Salvation Army wanted to transform the slums of England they moved the slum sisters INTO the slums – it was transformation from the inside out. This effective strategy is a gospel one. To be present means to understand in a completely radical way the reality of life people face in neighbourhoods and areas that offer incredible complexity of need. When God wanted to reconcile the world to himself He sent Jesus to the world… incarnation is presence – God with skin on – showing the darkest places on earth the powerful light of the gospel that we hold inside of us (in jars of clay).


Solidarity – with
‘These are our people!’ – William Booth

When my family moved into Canada’s poorest postal code (the downtown eastside of Vancouver) to a drug-addicted neighbourhood, we began our corps by being present in the community. We moved in. Then we began to pray and seek God’s will for the neighbourhood. He led me to pray Psalm 97 over the community – prayer walking became a daily exercise and I quickly learned Psalm 97 by heart – reciting ‘The Lord Reigns’ as I walked through squalor, addiction and pain.
 Declaring things by faith is a hard job when the physical reality looks so different from our prayers. One day I was walking and praying Psalm 97 as was my habit, and one of the verses slipped off my tongue and stabbed my heart. In the middle of the Psalm is a little verse that says this, ‘the righteous are glad at the judgements of the Lord.’ It struck me that in all my life I had never rejoiced at judgement. Actually, if I’m honest I’ve always been on the wrong side of judgement. When judgment came into my life, whether it be through my principal at school, or the police officer pulling over speeding cars, or the DC calling, it was never good news. I was always at fault. I was on the wrong side of judgement. I remember reading and resonating with a bumper sticker that said, ‘Jesus is coming – quick, look busy!’ because even the idea of facing judgement at the end of the age is terrifying for me!

But this scripture says that the RIGHTEOUS will rejoice at the judgements of God. Who rejoices at judgement? Who is it that can’t wait for their day in court? Who is it that calls out day and night before the throne of God in revelation for judgement to come quickly? The oppressed, the exploited and the poor. They rejoice at God’s judgements because finally someone is going to stand up for them – someone is going to be on their side. It struck me that day that I was on the wrong side of judgement and that my posture – where I stood in the world - mattered for eternity. It wasn’t that I was ‘doing’ anything wrong – it was where I saw myself in the world. The truth of it is that to stand WITH the poor means to be scorned, to be thought less of – to be looked down upon. I remember taking a homeless friend with me out to dinner at a relatively expensive restaurant. If we had a dollar for every evil eye or bad look we received we could have eaten for free – when it comes to ‘us and them’ we need to be ‘with them’. Surely this is the other secret to Jesus’ amazing ministry – He didn’t just serve the poor – He stood with the poor, the oppressed and the marginalized. He threw his lot in with them. He was present and He was with those who can’t wait for the righteous judgments to come.

For those of us who live in a western context we must continually remind ourselves that we are the rich. Even those who live on welfare in our context are some of the richest people on the planet on the global economic scale. When we read the scriptures, it’s amazing how many times Jesus and the prophets address the rich – compelling them to trade in their riches for eternal gain – and yet, incredibly they rarely listen. I used to read those scriptures with scorn towards the rich (of course, it was never me that was rich!). But as the Lord began to rebuke me gently to realize my standing in the world – the incredible resources I took for granted everyday – the extent of my own personal wealth – I began to receive the rebuke as instructions for my own living. I began to trade in and share my resources with those I was called to and with. It began to transform not just the neighbourhood, but inside me.

And that’s when I started to understand the unofficial charter of The Salvation Army – Isaiah 58 – the scripture that captured the heart of William Booth those hundred and thirty seven years ago – the promise of the sun rising on us – the promise of God’s blessing is hinged to the willingness of God’s people to spend themselves on behalf of the poor – to give of their own resources to meet the needs of the oppressed. This change of posture is life-changing not just for the poor but also for the rich. That day, back in a dark and dreary alley in the downtown eastside of Vancouver I decided to change my posture. I am now waiting with joy for the judgements of God.


Advocacy – for
“Salvationism is simply this: the banishment of wickedness from the earth.” – William Booth

These steps are just the beginning of a strategy that leads to community transformation. Booth suggested in his landmark book, In Darkest England, that two things were necessary for true Kingdom transformation: the character of a man and the conditions he lives in. Advocacy that leads to challenging evil both inside hearts and through systems and structures is possible – but the long-term change needed will only happen as we embrace our calling to and with and for the poor. Not only this, but if we keep winning the world for Jesus as our main goal it’s helpful to remind ourselves that over 50% of the world lives in poverty – if we are truly serious about ushering in God’s Kingdom come on the earth – the poor are the place to start. There is so much more to this call than these simple truths but they are truths that God has been teaching me and I’ve found a joy to live out. I’m believing with my presence, solidarity and advocacy for God’s Kingdom come.

THE SACRAMENTS



Ruth and I have a great many books. The vast majority of them are in Stockholm, where we packed and stored all our belongings when we moved to Riga three years ago. (Intial three year assignment)

We brought with us a select number of books in the move to Latvia, and from time to time I go to the bookshelf to look for a book to read, or perhaps read a second time. Last week I found a little book that I read at the end of the 70s during the ignited charismatic movement. It was one of the many books that "everyone" read at the time. The book is called "Walking in the Spirit" and is written by the Anglican priest Micharl Harper. Today you can find the book in ‘used’ bookstores. You can also find it if you google the title and / or author. (Bethany House Publishers1 Jul 1983 )

There were a number of  "new" things many of us had to come to terms with, whether we were Anglicans or Salvationists. One interesting little detail in the book is how Michael Harper relates to speaking in tongues. He writes: "Speaking in tongues is like a sacrament; an outward, visible sign of an inherent grace." Here he uses the classic definition of a sacrament, and so he thinks that speaking in tongues  fits well under that description.

And why not? The early church father Augustine did not simply count two sacraments as did the Lutherans, or even seven sacraments as did the Catholics. For Augustine, there was an undefined number of sacraments. For him, as an example, the ‘signing’ of the cross was a sacrament, praying the Lord's Prayer was a sacrament, and he had no need to determine just how many sacraments there actually are.

There Augustine comes close to the Salvation Army's view that one’s life is a sacrament (= sacred act) and that we should not partmentalize life into sacred and non-sacred acts. For Christians, every action ought to be holy.

TEAR DOWN THE PYRAMIDS


Five years ago we blogged about what has been an influential article from NYT Magazine called 'Challenging The Generals." 


We thought it’d be interesting to give it another look from five years away.  So here is the pertinent posting from five years ago with an update:

1. The cause of this tension is the war in Iraq, but the consequences are broader. They revolve around the obligations of an officer, the nature of future warfare and the future of the Army itself. And these tensions are rising at a time when the war has stretched the Army’s resources to the limit, when junior officers are quitting at alarming rates.

’07 comment: I don't know that this applies in our Army today more than at other times in history. Certainly, worldwide, resources are stretched. I don't know that people are quiting at higher rates than other points in history (that would be interesting to know). What applies is the line-up of the consequences of the tension: officership, future warfare, and the future of The Army. We might revisit these in a separate blog.

’12 comment: It is around the time of the original article that the now influential Former Salvation Army Officer Fellowship blog started up - http://fsaof.blogspot.ca/.  Today’s post has the names of 500 former officers game for a conversation to ‘come back’.  They represent 20 times their number.  So the issue is still critical.  Again, we can’t tell if the desertion rate is increasing (General Clifton reported stats in The Officer* during his tenure but that trend has ceased.  They seemed to be declining).

Addendum from FSAOF:








*The General’s article “If Crosses Come”, details the cause and effect (%) of resignations:

REASONS:
Domestics, marital or family: (25.29 %)
Dissatisfaction, for example, appointment/remuneration: (21.01) %
Misconduct: (19.06) %
Unsuited for further service: (9.7 %)
Transfer to another church: (6.23 %)
Marriage to non-officer: (5.8 %)
Feeling discouraged: (5.4 %)
Health issues: (5.4 %)
Health of spouse: (.4 %)
Doctrinal issues: ( 1.55 %)

The above list of ‘reasons’ suggest that there is no unique or single common motivating factor, the resignations stem from a multitude of factors.

As a spiritual body nearing 550 members, the FSAOF is very concerned about the army’s future, the organization that trained us for the ministry and in the roles where many of us serve today. The spiritual body we represent was grounded and formed in response to a ‘call’ each of us heard, accepting our vocation in accordance with Paul’s description in Ephesians 4:11-12 (NIV) ‘It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up’.

31 Days of Praying for Your Officers/Pastors -



‘Weaving passionate, effective prayer through the fabric of The Salvation Army’

31 Days of Praying for Your Officers/Pastors

 “Brothers, pray for us.” (1 Thess 5:25 NIV)

Let the thought sink deep into the heart of every Corps, that their Officers will be such Officers as their prayers make them …” How perilous is the condition of your Pastors (Officers)?   . . . whose heart is not encouraged, whose hands are not strengthened, and who is not upheld by the prayers of their people!” …
 “It is at a fearful expense that ministers are ever allowed to enter the pulpit without being preceded, accompanied, and followed by the earnest prayers of the churches.  It is no marvel that the pulpit is so powerless, and ministers so often disheartened when there are so few to hold up their hands. . . When the churches cease to pray for ministers, ministers will no longer be a blessing to the churches.” Gardiner Spring (1785-1873)

There is no greater gift you can give your Officers and the spiritual leaders of your Corps than to pray for them.  Officers cannot win the battle alone … they need committed intercessors to lift them up in fervent, specific prayer.  Imagine how the power of God might be released in your Corps if you were to pray faithfully for your Officers.

Officers are human …they face the same challenges that other people do, with some additional ones!  They grow tired in ministry … are tempted to sin … and may find it difficult to balance their many roles and responsibilities.  They need the encouragement and support of those they lead. 

Prayer for your Officer is crucial to the spiritual health of your Officers, their family, and your Corps.  God will reward your efforts to cover them in prayer.  If you want to encourage your Officers, spiritual leaders let them know you are praying for them.  Ask them periodically for any specific prayer requests and assure them you will pray accordingly.  It might be helpful for you to use the following prayer guide with accompanying Scriptures, to suggest practical ways to pray for those who provide spiritual leadership.




Day 1
Pray that your Officer will love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength.  Pray that God’s Spirit will work in their heart in power and that they will value and follow Biblical priorities. (Deut. 6:5; Matt. 6:33) 
 
Day 2
Pray that your Officer will cultivate strong character and uncompromising integrity. Pray that their testimony will be genuine, and that they will never do anything that they would need to hide from others. (1 Tim. 1: 5; 3:7; Eph. 6: 10-12)

Day 3
Pray for their personal walk with God …that their soul and spirit will be nourished and strengthened in their quiet time with God.  (Mk. 1:35; 2 Tim.2: 15-16)  

Day 4
Pray that your Officer will counsel and teach with discernment through the wise use of Scripture and faith in God’s power to work.  Pray that they will be protected from the effects of negative attitudes that they encounter as they counsel.  (Mal.2:7; James 1: 5-6; John 17:15) 
 
Day 5
Ask God to protect your Officers marriage and keep it strong as a model of Christ’s relationship with the Church.  Pray that your Officers will lovingly respect and encourage their spouse, both within their family life and leadership of the Corps.  (Eph. 5: 23-33)  If your Officer is not married, or single spouse, pray for their relationships with loved ones and those who are close to them.  Pray too against the pain of loneliness.
 
Day 6
Pray that God will protect your Officers from bitterness if they are criticized.  Pray that their prayer and devotional life will be consistent, and that they will guard their mind and heart. (Heb.12:15; Prov. 4:23)
 
Day 7
Pray for your Officers children, and especially that the pressures of the ministry will not discourage or embitter them.  Pray that your Officers will provide godly leadership in their home, not based on fear of what others will think, but according to scriptural truth.  If your Officer does not have children, pray that God would protect their hearts and minds from what could be a struggle of childlessness and that God would bless their lives with the joy of other people’s children.  (Eph. 6: 4; Col. 3: 20-21)
 

Day 8
Ask God to protect your Officer from the evil ways of Satan.  (John 17:15; 2 Cor. 2:11; 1 Pet. 3:12, Ps. 9:9-10, 91: 9-11)
 
Day 9
Pray that God will build a wall of protection around your Officer’s marriage.  Whether married or single they will be aware of the potential for any improper relationships.  Pray that they will protect their family time, and or their own personal time. ( 2 Cor. 10: 4-5; Matt. 19:6) 

Day 10
Pray that your Officers will use discernment in use of e-mails, the Internet, social networks and the media.  Ask God to guard their hearts and minds concerning the use of free time.  Pray that they will be morally pure and that they will wear the full armour of God so that they will not fall into temptation.  (Rom. 13:14; 1 Pet. 1:16; Eph. 6: 10-18; 2 Cor. 10:4) 



Day 11
Pray that God will bring godly friends and encouragers to your Officers and their family, to strengthen them for the ministry and provide meaningful fellowship and times of rest. (Phil. 2: 19-25)
 
Day 12
Pray that your Officers will be humble and authentic in their faith.  Pray that they will have pure motives and give God glory for everything.  (Micah 6:8; Gal. 6:14; John 7: 17-18; 1 Cor. 10:13) 
 
Day 13
Pray that your Officers will make wise lifestyle choices in order to protect
their health, especially in the areas of exercise, eating, and getting sufficient rest.  Pray for times of relaxation and renewal to balance the stress of ministry. (Rom. 12: 1-2; 1 Cor. 6: 19-20; James 3: 1-2)

 
Day 14
Pray that your Officers will focus on the Word of God and walk in the fear
of the Lord, rather than fear of people, as they prepare their messages, their sermons.  Pray that they will seek to please God rather than people, and pursue holiness rather than the praise of others.  (Acts 6: 4;  Prov. 19: 23; 2 Tim.2: 15



Day 15

Praise God for your Officers leadership and pray that they will make godly decisions. Pray that they will lead with a shepherd’s heart, and that they will always speak the truth in love.  (1 Kings 3:9; 1 Pet. 5:2; Rom. 12: 6-8; Jer. 3: 15)

Day 16
Pray that your Officers will be courageous on the platform in proclaiming Christ, and confident in their use of the Word of God.  Ask God to help them to preach with insight, transparency and humility. (Col. 1: 28; 4: 3a; Eph. 6:19) 

Day 17
Pray that your Officers  will be people of the “Great Commission”—committed to ‘Saving Souls … Growing Saints and Serving Suffering Humanity’.  Pray that they will have a heart to develop a thriving mission programme within your Corps. (Rom. 10: 15; Matt. 28: 19-20; Luke 19: 10)
 
Day 18
Pray that your Officers will be people of prayer and worship, and that they
will lead by example … teaching the Corps how to walk in a close relationship with God.  (1 Thess. 5:17; Acts 1: 14a; Matt. 4: 10; Mark 1: 35; Luke 22: 46) 

 
Day 19
Pray that your Officers will use wise time management, and that they will seek God’s perspective for their timetable, guarding their time against unnecessary interruptions. (Eph. 5: 15-16; Col. 4:5; Ps. 90 12; John 9: 4)
 
Day 20

Day 21
Pray that your Officers will not give in to discouragement, but will deal with inevitable criticism and conflict by committing themselves into the hands of God, who judges righteously.  (1 Pet. 2: 23)
 
Day 22
Pray that your Officers will practice servant leadership, edifying the Corps with wisdom and serving with God’s “agape” love.   (Gal. 5: 13b; Eph. 6:7; Mark 10: 43b-45; 9: 23-24; John 13: 5-9; Phil. 2: 3-4)
 
Day 23
Pray for spiritual unity in your Corps staff, volunteers and among the spiritual leadership team.  Pray that the enemy will not be allowed to create divisions, strife, or misunderstanding among the Corps leaders.  (Rom. 14: 19; 1 Cor. 12: 25) 
 
Day 24
Pray that God will give your Officers a clear, Biblical vision of what your Corps can and should be for His glory, and that they will communicate that vision clearly and confidently to the Corps.  (Prov. 29:18; John 15: 16; 17: 17)

Day 28
Pray that your Officers will strive for personal excellence and will believe God for all He wants to do in the life of the Corps.  (2 Pet. 1: 3; Col. 3: 23-24)
 
Day 29
Pray that your Officers will be people of faith and passionate love for God, not giving in to worries, fears, or an uptight and anxious spirit.  (1 Jn. 4: 18; Prov. 3: 5-6)

CAN YOU HEAR US NOW?

IHQ - Below are the names of a half thousand former officers. (only 3 SA territories world-wide currently can claim that many active officers) Some 21 % recently expressed a willingness to discuss a return to full time service. However, more than 90% shared they'd not heard from anyone in TSA in the last three years! The FSAOF is more than willing to assist by providing contact information; readily downloadable from our electronic DISPO.  (18 territories globally)


Note! Some in our list have already returned to active officership thanking our fellowship as a motivating factor.


One Territorial Headquarters has already engaged the FSAOF to research: RECONCILIATION (there is repentance we need to do as an Army) RESTORATION, and RENEWAL.
