Taking over a global organization best known for its social service work, the Salvation Army's new international leader said in an interview he wants the Christian movement's religious work to take center stage for the 1.7-million member church.
"In the United Kingdom, with the economic crisis at the moment, local churches are more in the front line of providing support in many practical ways to the communities we serve. I think that recaptures something of the original calling," he said. "We're not [just] called to sit on pews or on chairs on a Sunday morning to worship, that is part of who we are, but we need to be inspired to reach out because of the faith we have, because of our spiritual life to serve suffering humanity."
"One of the things that has challenged me, particularly in recent years, is the fact we are a people who have received grace from God, we're grateful for his love and his transformation in our lives ... but it's more than theory, it's got to take root in us and it's got to be visible," he said.
