Soup, Soap and Salvation in the 21st Century

This is the well chosen theme of the Social Programme Conference being held at the Geelong Conference Centre. We enjoyed meeting with the delegates tonight for the Keynote Meeting. The cast of presenters for the conference is quite impressive as are their subjects. I'm praying that each one gives their best for the advancement of our good work.

The delegates include many of the leaders of our social programmes and represent a formidable force for good in the world. We can't get it all done without them. They work hard and efficiently. They are all Salvos whether they attend a corps on Sunday or not.

The leader is one Major Dr. Graeme Rigley. He's the Territorial Social Programme Secretary and he's great. We are fortunate to have him in the job.

Matthew 25:40 (MSG)
40 Then the King will say, 'I'm telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.'
