Just happened to be looking at a list of corps in the West Scotland division, my home division.
There are 31 corps in the division today, albeit that there are two or three on their way out, sadly.
When I became a Salvationist in 1995 there were 51 corps. 20 corps closed in 12 years and a few more due for the chop.
Something is seriously wrong. This is not right.
I don’t know much about the division I am in, but the West is showing a severely unhealth sign of decline. What’s happening in the east?? Let us know.
Come on Salvationists of Scotland, we’ve got some praying to do! Not only that, we’ve got some evangelism to do.
How is the war on your front?
