“The thing I love about The Salvation Army is that it is peculiar”



Having previously posted about Shane Claiborne, and his visit to Roots next year, it’s good to be able to read a little interview with Geoff Ryan of the 614 Network at theRubicon*

*theRubicon is an independent, volunteer-driven online magazine. We are Christians with our roots in The Salvation Army. We are doers who have learned that we need to think deeply, rigorously and critically about what we do, why we do it and why there are things we don’t do. “Contemplative activists,” is one way of putting it, or “field theologians.”

The piece was originally written for The Salvation Army in Canada’s Salvationist mag way back in June this year.

Hey Eric

Scotland is a VERY happy place right now, as last night our football(soccer) team beat France in Paris. This is a MAJOR result, and should help in our bid to reach next year's European Finals!! :-)))

On the other hand, I'm gutted I won't be able to be in Scotland for your visit. It would have been awesome to hook up. It's a real shame.

However, a good number of my blogging buddies are based up there(I live close to London), so I'm gonna spread the word, and see if any of them are available. I'll make sure they come over to you and say "Johnny sent me..!"

Peace & blessings, bro'!
