You might be surprised to learn that music is deeply rooted in the history of The Salvation Army and still plays a huge part in the organization’s everyday culture.
Why is this so? Beginning in the late 19th century, music was a method for The Salvation Army to minister to people about the Gospel. The brass instruments would grab the attention of passersby on the street!
It’s amazing how often an individual’s spiritual and emotional transformation results from life’s curveballs. C.S. Lewis famously said “Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn.”
No one understands this better than Tanya. As a soldier for The Salvation Army in San Diego, she is a shining example of Christ in her love for and service to others.
