Cross the bridge!

Our SAconnects magazine staff is diligently preparing the final issue of this year for you. It covers both December 2018 and January 2019 and will serve as our “bridge to the future.”

In the process, we’ve enjoyed passionate discussions about the challenges that face the world and have vigorously debated how we, as writers and designers, can best tell how The Salvation Army is often a bridge of hope over the horrific problems that frequently appear insurmountable.

For me, crossing bridges can be an exhilarating but also scary experience. I’m fascinated by being on an elevated path through the sky, but I sometimes fear I’ll fall. So, I keep my eyes focused on the other side.

We invite you to cross this bridge with us as we focus on stories about generous volunteerism; biblical literacy; courageous evangelism; anti–sexual trafficking; social justice; fighting the scourge of homelessness and substance abuse; mental, spiritual, and physical healthcare; and long–term disaster recovery.

When it comes to meeting human need, particularly in the aftermath of tragedy, management guru Peter Drucker called The Salvation Army “the most effective organization in the United States.”

Cross the bridge to the future with us. Let our amazing and heartfelt stories show you the way.
