New Members on Salvation Army International Doctrine Council
The Salvation Army International Doctrine Council welcomed new members at its March 2012 meeting held at the International College for Officers and Centre for Spiritual Life Development, London.
Major Danielle Cesar (France and Belgium Territory), Captain Amy Reardon (USA National) and Dr James Read (Canada and Bermuda Territory) each brought distinctive gifts and expertise which will enrich and expand the deliberations of the council.
Discussions and debate centred upon the instigation, continuation and revision of a number of writing projects and forward planning for events. Feedback to Doctrine Council members regarding initial articles in a series for The Officer exploring aspects of holiness, indicates they have been well received. The Salvation Army’s involvement in ecumenical events was also considered, especially the contribution of the Korea Territory to the planning for the 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches in Busan, Korea.
