About Don’s Pages

This site is intended to provide words of encouragement and resources for those on the front line of ministry in The Salvation Army, Corps Officers and ARC Officers in particular.

I have utmost respect for those who face the challenges of ministry in this rapidly changing world. With my active officership nearly five years in the past, I recognize that the complexities of navigating the cultural, political, and managerial waters requires knowledge, skills and attitudes different from those required in simpler times.

I have discovered that putting my (sometimes random) thoughts into writing clarifies my thinking and also serves as a catharsis; it’s good to “get it off my chest,” as the saying goes. So even if no-one ever reads my posts, I will be the better for having written them.
