Respected and Esteemed: Discussion Questions for Church #72

In addition to these three remaining churches on my spreadsheet is my mental list of four more. The first of these churches is the Salvation Army.

Most people know the Salvation Army for their red donation kettles at Christmastime. 

Consider these three discussion questions about Church 72.

1. The Salvation Army addresses the needs of the homeless and provides disaster relief and humanitarian aid. They’re also a church. Few people know this.

What would we think about being known as a service organization first and a church second?

2. I think highly of the Salvation Army. I suspect most everyone does. Though I’m sure they aren’t perfect, I’ve yet to hear anyone say a critical word.

What do people think about us? Our church? The Savior we represent?

3. The Salvation Army positively impacts their community and world. Helping one person at a time, they make a difference, serving as the hands and feet of Jesus.

How can we make our world better?
