Not Called? - Candidate Recruitment Campaign
In 1884, William Booth published a stirring letter to all Salvationists in the "All the World" publication. The letter was simply entitled "GO!" An excerpt from this letter forms the basis of this years candidate recruitment campaign.
"Not called," did you say? Not heard the call I think you should say... Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear and bid you go and pull poor sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity and listen to its pitying wail for help. Go and stand by the gates of Hell and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father's house, and bid their brothers, sisters, and servants, and masters not to go there. And then look Christ in the face, whose mercy you profess to have got, and whose words you have promised to obey, and tell Him whether you will join us heart and soul and body and circumstances in this march to publish His mercy to all the world."
