Worship the Lord

...every day.

It’s a beautiful day to worship the Lord. This means a great deal to believers who enjoy being together to thank God for His provision. So we should approach the experience with constructive anticipation and joy. Just think, singing songs of delight, being with other positively impacted people by God, seeking the grace of God. […]

Music speaks to the soul.

There are many people who have stepped away from the faith, but still love the music. I can think of many Salvationists who aren’t worshipping God in a fellowship, but will think holy thoughts whenever they hear a Salvation Army Band recording. I bumped into one such person in the last week who came to […]

Major Charlotte Coles

In this beautiful movement of God known as The Salvation Army, we have the ‘Army Mother’ and we have Army Mothers. Neither is more important than the other. I can think of many Army Mothers throughout my journey in The Salvation Army. One of the best is Major Charlotte Coles. Recently, Charlotte was Promoted To […]

50 Years a Senior Soldier

While conducting the Easter Convention at Boscombe, UKT Corps, I realized the 50th anniversary of being enrolled as a Senior Soldier in The Salvation Army. It was on Easter Sunday 1965 at the Niagara Falls, NY, Citadel Corps by my father, Major Roderick Knaggs. I remember the day and can visualize it, knowing that it […]

With His victory over death and the grave, He demonstrates convincingly that we too can enjoy life over the deadly circumstances in our journey. Today at the Easter Convention, we enjoyed two meetings indoors, an outdoor meeting and a march of […]
