Sidney Myer Music Bowl

The Melbourne Staff Band played the preliminary program to a Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Concert tonight. With no less than 20,000 people present, the band performed with excellence and grace. Major Len Turner, the Executive Officer led the program with words of encouragement, life and hope. We were all proud to be Salvationists.

There have to be ways in which we can confront the masses with the love of God. Here in Australia, people generally see the Salvos as people of light. This presents a wonderful opportunity to be strategic in grace. It just isn't enough to be nice people. We must get the Word out. Help us, Lord.

Matthew 5:14 (NIV)
14 "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.
