All of Us Together
In offices, centres, Family Stores and corps throughout our territory people are working to meet human need and introduce people to a restorative relationship with Jesus Christ. We work to relieve the distress experienced in the lives of people who come to us for help. We do this together.
During a visit to the NASA Space Centre in 1962, President John F Kennedy noticed a janitor carrying a broom. He interrupted his tour, walked over to the man and said: ‘Hi, I’m Jack Kennedy, what are you doing?’ The janitor responded: ‘I’m helping put a man on the moon, Mr President’.
This inspiring story has been repeated many times over the past 50 years. I love the commitment and purpose of this man and everyone who captured the vision and helped to put people on the moon. We may not be heading for the moon, but our mission is no less important. Our mission is caring for people, transforming lives and reforming society by God’s power.
Every day, we do our part to help others hear and see the love of Jesus in action through the way we care—all of us together.
Every day, we do our part to transform lives through the diversity of our services, through prayer, worship and preaching God’s Word to see transformation and salvation in Jesus—all of us together.
Every day, we do our part to reform society through messages of hope and love; through the many ways we advocate for people in our community—all of us together.
I am thankful for the people who are passionate and committed to this mission, who choose to work, worship, support and serve—all of us together.
SALT is full of exciting and encouraging stories of what we are doing and of people who have experienced the love, forgiveness and life in all its fullness in Jesus. As we share our own stories, others hear and can experience this restorative work too.
Our Bible reading in Ephesians 4:15-16, provides us with advice to help us stay focused, passionate and committed—all of us together.
