Engagerad initiativtagare befordrad till härligheten

Bertil Rodin, O.F. (Order of the Founder) har haft en betydande roll inom Frälsningsarmén och har lämnat många avtryck efter sig när han i december lämnade jordelivet, 88 år gammal. Han brann för samhällets utsatta, var en sann bedjare och duktig lärare och han gav upphov till värdefulla verksamheter i Sverige och Lettland. Bertil Rodin föddes år 1929 och hann bli 88 år innan han befordrades till härligheten 26 december förra året. Under många år hade han flera betydelsefulla uppdrag i sin lokala kår. Bland annat var han fanjunkare och han tillhörde Vasakåren i Stockholm.


Friends, this Christmastime we reflect once more on one of the most holy yet revolutionary places in history – the simple Bethlehem stable where Christ was born. We pause in the busyness of our hectic and frenetic lives to give thanks to God for his wondrous gift. It was – and is – the greatest gift ever; a gift of healing, wholeness, restoration, love and reconciliation and, above all, relationship with God.

With God I feel different, the way I was created

Diāna Ratiņika from Bauska Corps God has now taken an important role in my life, and in the Salvation Army I have gotten to know God more and more. There have been many difficult moments in my life but somehow everything has always turned out the way it is supposed to. I remember when I was younger and for the first time I took part in the Salvation Army camp for children. It was my birthday. I felt a bit different being amongst different people in an unfamiliar place but I liked that feeling. I saw that these people cared about children getting to know God and Jesus. I really enjoyed the camp. In that camp I understood that my life was going to change and that nothing was going to be as before.

Taize Riga

15,000 young people praying together for peace and trust, that's what happened in Riga, Latvia, during the last days of 2016 and into the new year 2017. Young people, 18-35 years came from "all corners" of the earth to participate in the ecumenical Taizé "pilgrimage of trust" a real pilgrimage of trust. Together we have met, talked and prayed. We have come to know the world right here, right now.
