Remembering 9/11: War Cry’s September Issue
Have you checked out the newest edition of War Cry, a publication of The Salvation Army?
The powerful September edition is titled What We Learned From 9/11 and includes stories and testimonies from Salvation Army Officers who served on the front lines of need on September 11 and the months following.
Not to be missed:
The Story is of Glory, contributed by Craig H. Evans, Development Director for The Salvation Army of Portland, ME. Craig witnessed the attacks on September 11 from The Salvation Army’s divisional headquarters in Manhattan. His powerful account of that day is extremely moving. He attributes his team’s coordinated response amid many obstacles to God-given grace and strength.
There is Calvary, an account from Major Molly Shotzberger, Salvation Army Team Leader who worked at Ground Zero. Major Shotzberger writes about the worker who discovered three perfect crosses underneath the rubble of the World Trade Center- and called the site Calvary.
Presence - Read how Lt. Colonel Stephen Banfield, Salvation Army Incident Commander at Ground Zero, came to understand that sometimes the only thing a victim needs is another person’s presence. Lt. Colonel Banfield did just that, standing with and comforting victims who were waiting for their loved ones to be discovered from the wreckage.
