Greetings in Jesus’ name.
Welcome to JAC119 – the 119th issue of Aggressive
We’re taking a breather in ‘119 from themes, having run on
‘Evangelism’, ‘Our Fathers Have Told Us’, and ‘Hope’ over the
past six months.
JAC119 is a grab bag assortment of inspiration and teaching,
from parts far and near.
This issue runs from Lieutenants to Colonel, from
Burkina Faso to Brooklyn, from Genesis 3 all the way up to the
day you read this.
Strap yourself in, and get ready to be edified by this
inspiring line-up of contributors:
Lieutenant Brian Dueck was the
commissioning speaker representing the Messengers of the
Gospel in Toronto this past year and spoke compellingly on
‘For The Sake Of Christ And The World He Came To Redeem’.
With his wife he leads the Weetamah Corps in Winnipeg.
Major Terence Hale contributes some
research into some ‘fiery’ songs of Lawley and Booth (with
some mention of Booth children) in ‘Considering Early
Salvation Army Hymnology And Theology’.
He’s the Territorial Youth Secretary for Canada and
Captain Michael Ramsay – ‘But Am I
Saved?’ is a hardcore look at some revolutionary teaching by
John in Luke 3.
Alberni Valley Corps in British Columbia fights under his
wife’s and his leadership.
Colonel Richard Munn’s Egalitarian
Relationships is part of some larger research in which he is
engaged these days that gives us Biblical foundation and
confidence to live boldly in His will.
Munn leads and thinks and teaches on ethical and
theological issues from his perch at USA Eastern’s THQ.
Lieutenant Scott Swires looks through
practical, prophetic lenses to encourage readers in
‘Cultivating A Culture Of Creativity’.
With his wife he leads the Brooklyn Bay Ridge Corps.
Captain Andre Togo and Major Stephen
Court team up to disseminate some ‘Incendiary Thoughts’ that
is a primer for a larger project and which aims to stir up
some burning passion.
Togo and his wife invaded Burkina Faso (#131 in SA
countries invaded, for those counting).
Danielle Strickland reflects on
‘Finding The Hidden Secret That Unlocks The Doorway To
Blessing’ (teaser- it has to do with gratefulness!).
Strickland helped start up Amplify Peace along with
some other great commission initiatives (see
DanielleStrickland.com for more).
We hope you read it all, apply everything God
highlights, share widely and frequently, and appreciate the
experiences of our contributors from so many different
perspectives and experiences.
