We Stand on Hope

January 23, 2017

In a world filled with sudden tragedy, certain loss, uncertain futures, sorrow, and despair, it can become easy to get lost in the hopelessness and negativity.

But there is HOPE. And The Salvation Army makes a stand on that truth.
For every tragedy there is restoration, for every loss, new life, in uncertainty there is peace, and in sorrow and despair- there is Hope.

The Salvation Army Manifesto speaks that hope into existence. While we don’t deny hurt, loss, poverty, addiction, tragedy or homelessness- we do believe that there is hope for tomorrow.

I am doing the most good.
I am hope.
I am compassion.
I am strength.
I am faith.

I am doing the most good.
I serve a community.
A region.
A nation.
A world.
I serve heroes.
I serve victims.
I serve a sovereign God.

I am doing the most good.
I am an Army.
Drafted by the Creator.
Commissioned by a man who defied death.
My enemies are despair and destruction.
My ammunition is grace and mercy.
My allies are generosity and benevolence.
I am an Army.
Helping others be all they can be.

I am doing the most good.
I feed empty stomachs and hungry souls.
I rebuild ruined homes and shattered lives.
I am a willing listener for a veteran with stories to tell.
I am a bottled water and an encouraging smile for a weary firefighter.
I am an answered prayer.
A silver lining.
A second chance.

I am doing the most good.
I am a humble steward of other people’s generosity.
I am a grateful courier of a stranger’s kindness.
I am the faithful executor of others’ goodwill.
I take my responsibility seriously.
I am blessed.
I am a blessing.

I am The Salvation Army.
I am doing the most good.
