Orlando Shooting: The Salvation Army's world leader responds
In response to the Orlando, USA, nightclub shooting that claimed 50 lives and left 53 people injured, General André Cox has recorded a video message in which he calls on Salvationists and friends from around the world to 'demonstrate God's mercy in a practical and tangible way'. He offers prayers for everyone affected by this tragedy.
Speaking to an international audience of Salvationists and friends, the General also lays down a strong challenge: 'Let us as The Salvation Army rise up and be mobilised, showing God's love to those who may not expect to be loved by us. Let's transcend the man-made barriers that seek to divide us from our "neighbour". And let's do it today, with God's help.'
